The third season of Syfy and USA Network’s hit cult horror series, Chucky, is finally arriving next month, and seems to be taking an equally ridiculous and horrific turn.
Syfy released the full-length trailer on its YouTube channel, which shows that the notorious killer doll, Chucky, has somehow found his way into the White House, becoming the favorite toy of young Henry Collins, the son of President James Collins. While Chucky’s motives within the nation’s highest office remain unclear, the trailer teases a reunion with familiar faces from the previous seasons.
In Season 3, Chucky establishes an unexpected connection with Henry, offering him companionship in the unfamiliar White House environment. The trailer reveals a key scene in which Chucky gives a FaceTime call to Jake, Devon, and Lexy, to entice them and declare, “They’ll never forget me this time.” The gang decides to go on a mission to Washington DC to kill Chucky and free Lexy’s sister. Additionally, Tiffany Valentine resurfaces, surviving Chucky’s assault from Season 2 finale and finding herself behind the bars. She is also angry with Lexy who had fooled her by playing a producer.
Devon Sawa, a notable cast member the in previous seasons, continues to be a pivotal figure in Chucky. Having portrayed various characters, including twin brothers and a possessed figure, Sawa now assumes the role of the President of the United States. Brad Dourif is returning as Chucky in his 35th year with the cult franchise. Jennifer Tilly is also back as Tiffany Valentine. Returning alongside them are Zackary Arthur as Jake Wheeler, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross, Björgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, and Carina Battrick as Caroline.
Chucky Episode Titles Are Named After Horror Movies
Chucky Season 3 will once again consist of eight episodes, and premiere the first episode titled “Murder at 1600″. The annual Halloween episode, “Halloween III: Season of the Witch,” will arrive a bit early on October 25th. Two other episodes, named after popular horror movies, Let the Right One In and Jennifer’s Body, have been announced, while details on the remainder four remain under wraps.
Reviews for the previous seasons of Chucky have been strongly positive. Following into the step shoes of the renewed interest in bringing back old franchises such as Halloween, Scream, Saw and The Exorcist, Chucky has also attracted enormous popularity among fans, rekindling the “80s horror film series” craze into pop culture.
Chucky Season 3 will premiere on Oct. 4, on the Syfy channel. Additionally, the new episodes will stream on Peacock the day after they air.
