Here is everything we know so far about Chucky Season 3.
Chucky Season 3 Renewal Status
The good news has finally arrived for the fans, as Chucky will definitely return to the screen with the third season! It is no surprise that the show is returning for another season, as the overall reception alone indicates the show’s popularity along with the fairly good critical acclaim from the audience and critics. The network has handed a Season 3 renewal after the premiere of the second season in October which ran through the end of November. NBCU said that the show ranked as a top ten drama last year in the 18 – 49 demo.
We would like to bring attention to the fact that the exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed by the network. However, it has been hinted by the official Twitter handle of the show that it would most likely have a release window suggested to be around the fall of the 2023 television season. It is likely, as the second season premiered its pilot episode in a similar timeframe on November 23, 2022. Additionally, it is expected to follow a similar time slot, with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis every Wednesday at the same time slot of 9/8c for both Syfy and USA Network.
Of course, this is just speculation! In order to receive updates on when Chucky Season 3 premieres, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Hence, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the third season. On the other hand, the official Twitter handle of the show also shared the third season’s announcement among its followers, quoting, “i’m baaaaack now u dipshits can get tf out of my mentions #ChuckySeason3″ Take a look at the official post below:

Chucky Season 3: What to expect?
The series is expected to continue and explore the plot further from the second season’s final episode, “Chucky Actually,” in which the viewers got a flashback revealing that before Andy killed the doll, Chucky Prime was able to carry out the ceremony to swap bodies with Dr. Mixter. Dr. Mixter’s body is discovered by the police when Chucky enters her body and steals a brand-new Good Guy doll from her office. Glenda and Tiffany resolve to save themselves by putting themselves into the Glen/Glenda doll as Glen’s condition deteriorates. They carry out the ceremony after killing a suspicious cop, transferring both twins into the doll while changing their name to G.G. Tiffany sends G.G. to England so they can discover their ancestry. After coming home, Jake and Lexy sign up for group therapy, and Lexy extends an invitation to Jake and Devon to spend Christmas at her home.
The relationships between Jake and Devon, Lexy, and Mayor Cross are repaired on Christmas Eve. In addition to Tiffany, who is looking for Caroline’s Belle doll, Chucky also shows up at the residence. Mayor Cross is murdered by Chucky as she descends the stairs, and Tiffany does nothing to stop Lexy from killing Chucky. Caroline, whose mind has been completely corrupted by Chucky, says Tiffany is her true mother and flees with her and the Belle doll despite Jake and Devon injuring Tiffany. Miss Fairchild pays Jake, Devon, and Lexy a visit the following day and is convinced by their accounts of Chucky. After Tiffany and Caroline have settled in New York three weeks later, Nica, who is also in New York, makes a menacing phone call to Tiffany and threatens to exact retribution.
When it turns out to be Chucky in disguise, Tiffany’s effort to transfer her soul into the Belle doll is unsuccessful; while Caroline beams, Chucky strikes Tiffany. The season’s kills are then reviewed by Chucky, much as he did in season one. “The cast and crew of Chucky would like to thank fans and critics alike for their overwhelming response to season two, which we’re delighted to announce has now spurred the official to greenlight on season three. This news has made Chucky very happy. Thank Damballa for that because otherwise, Chucky would have been frankly impossible to deal with. Many thanks also to our partners at SYFY, USA, and UCP for helping us keep Chucky busy. See you in 2023 for what Chucky himself promises will be his scariest season ever,” said Don Mancini.
The main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles from the second season are as follows Zackary Arthur as Jake Wheeler, Björgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross, and Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky / Charles Lee Ray. The recurring cast members of the series are as follows Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, Devon Sawa as Father Bryce, Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine and herself, Bella Higginbotham as Nadine, Christine Elise as Kyle, Lachlan Watson as Glen and Glenda Tilly, Rosemary Dunsmore as Dr. Amanda Mixter, Lara Jean Chorostecki as Sister Ruth, and Andrea Carter as Sister Catherine. Chucky is produced by UCP and executive produced by Don Mancini, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner, and Jeff Renfroe.
