Chucky season 3 release date, cast, plot, trailers, and more news

With the horror series getting a third season, here's what we know about the Chucky season 3 release date and everything else that evil little doll is up to.

What is the Chucky season 3 release date? Looks like our little friend ’til the end is coming back for more murderous fun. Since the second season of Chucky left our screens back in the fall of last year, we’ve been gearing up to indulge in more of our favorite killer toy’s misadventures.

As one of the most memorably cheeky and foul-mouthed serial killers in film history, Chucky made his comeback in one of the genre’s best horror series, which reminded us of just how naughty this plastic-faced predator could be. With a successful Chucky season 2 following, things looked as bright as Chucky‘s orange hair.

With the likes of M3GAN welcomed into the horror movie dollhouse, there’s clearly an audience for these hijinks. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what we know about the Chucky season 3 release date, as well as all the other gory details from our favorite little psychopath. Who needs new movies when we’ve got this?

What’s the Chucky season 3 release date?

The Chucky season 3 part 1 release date is Wednesday, October 4, 2023, and Chucky season 3 part 2 will release sometime in 2024. Episodes will broadcast weekly and stream the next day.

Lucky fans got an announcement video, which involves Chucky fielding some doll-based questions from reporters. Just don’t mention the M-word, whatever you do. You can watch that clip below. One of the things that makes Chucky one of the best TV series adapted from horror films is the fun social media campaigns that come with it.

Chucky's tweet

“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 greenlight on season three,” creator Don Mancini said.

“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.”

Who’s in the Chucky season 3 cast?

The Chucky season 3 cast will see Jennifer Tilly return as fan-favorite Tiffany, and will also see Devon Sawa come back in a brand new role.

We finally got confirmation of Tilly’s return when she posted the below image in May 2023 on X with the caption, “Me ‘n #Chucky are headed for Toronto.” Honestly, this is the greatest news. Tilly’s flair for camp and her commitment to the franchise overall is its lifeblood. Just make sure you book an extra carry-on for your companion, Jennifer. He cannot go in the hold.

New cast members are mostly attributed to the President and his family, who will be a key aspect of season 3. We know that Devon Sawa, who previously played both the Wheeler Twins in season 1 and Father Bryce in season 2, will be playing President James Collins in the newest continuation.

Here’s the Chucky season 3 cast list:

  • Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine and herself

What is Chucky season 3 about?

In the season 3 plot, Chucky has infiltrated the White House and Jake, Devon, and Lexy have to try to get to him while Tiffany faces a crisis.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Chucky season 3:

“In Chucky’s unending thirst for power, season 3 now sees Chucky ensconced with the most powerful family in the world — America’s First Family, inside the infamous walls of the White House. How did Chucky wind up here? What in God’s name does he want? ”

“And how can Jake, Devon, and Lexy possibly get to Chucky inside the world’s most secure house, all while balancing the pressures of romantic relationships and growing up? Meanwhile, Tiffany faces a looming crisis of her own as the police close in on her for Jennifer Tilly’s murderous rampage last season.”

Honestly, Chucky is such a maniacal little madman, it was only a matter of time before he infiltrated the White House. Is he looking to rule the nation, or just cause a stir with the most political family in America? We’re thinking that he probably gets into the circle via the family’s youngest son, Henry. That’s usually how he tricks his way in.

Is there a Chucky season 3 trailer?

After the announcement video, a Chucky season 3 teaser trailer was released on September 1, 2023, and it shows Chucky infiltrating the White House. There was also a second trailer released on September 19.

Chucky, who runs all of his social media, released the official teaser trailer, which you can watch above.

His bio reads, “I was once the notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray until I was gunned down in a Chicago toy store, but before my dying breath I chanted the Damballa ritual and have been stuck as a doll ever since. Take a look back at my most memorable movie moments, from my multiple deaths and reincarnations to my killer one-liners, as I desperately try (and often fail) to reclaim human form once again!”
