Chucky is back and more dangerous than ever. “Chucky” (Brad Dourif) has returned to the TV screen, coming off from the success of his first season on SyFy and ready for round two with the kids of Hackensack.

Season 2 of “Chucky” by Don Mancini premiered on Oct. 5, picking off right from the cliffhanger of season 1. Chucky returns to take out the kids, Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur), Lexy Cross (Alyvia Alyn Lind) and Devon Evans (Björgvin Arnarson), for ruining his plans in season 1.

This season premiered with a bang, catching viewers up on the core cast after the events of season 1 while they are on high alert when a familiar doll starts to stalk them.
Mancini’s “Child’s Play” continues with the “Chucky” tv series with his style of writing and filming layered out. “Chucky” is loosely based off Mancini’s life growing up as a gay man and is expressed through the character Jake as he deals with his sexual orientation and finding acceptance.

The TV series also continues the story line of the films with Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) character from “Curse of Chucky” and “Bride of Chucky” and Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) character from the original “Child’s Play” trilogy.
The premiere knew what the audience were here for, and they delivered a lovely course of Jake and Devon’s romantic relationship, Tiffany Valentine’s doll, and of course Chucky. Although, this season premiere felt a little compacted and rushed in order to set up for the main points of interest that the rest of the season will be taking place in, it was exciting to see the core cast again.

The events of the season premiere are certain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats over the future plans of Chucky, Tiffany Valentine (Jennifer Tilly), and Andy Barclay following the new season.
This new season appears to have good potential, especially as it promises to deliver some awaited fan-favorite characters, Glend and Glenda.
