Nica's Revenge, The Prodigal Child's Return & More: 5 Things We're Dying To See In 'Chucky' Season 2
As we wait for "Chucky" Season 2 to premiere on USA Network and SYFY, we find ourselves daydreaming about what might be ...
Oh, wait. Yeah, that actually checks out …
While we plot our revenge on this little maniac, let’s look forward to what’s to come. Details on Season 2 are scant, and while we know who’s returning from Season 1 and have gotten some gory details about guest stars, we can’t help but daydream about what we might see. Season 1 left so many possibilities for a second season (and beyond) to really bring the madness, and like a parent careening out a window or Chucky, knife in hand, launching himself at an unsuspecting victim, the results are inevitable: death, laughter, and blood — so much blood.
Here are five things we’re simply dying to see in “Chucky” Season 2 when it premieres on USA Network and SYFY.
1. What Happened To Andy?
Last we saw Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), he was driving off with a mail truck full of Chucky-possessed Good Guy dolls. For a second, it looked like the good guys (see what we did there?) had won … and then a new Tiffany doll entered the frame to hold Andy at gunpoint and have him drive off into the unknown.
After all this time, we’d hope Andy knows what happens when your captor takes you to a second location.
Now that Tiffany (at least in this form) has an army of Chuckys and Andy Barclay at her disposal, there’s no telling what kind of trouble she could get up to. Andy’s survived this far — but how long before his luck gives out?
Side note: How is there a new Tiffany doll? Add that to the list of “WTF” mysteries we’re dying to see solved.
2. The Continuation Of Jake & Devon’s Love Story
Series creator Don Mancini has said that his favorite achievement in "Chucky" Season 1 is that he got to put a young, gay romance onscreen — the kind he’d have loved to see play out when he was a kid. We guess he’ll settle for inspiring the next generation of queer youth.
Watching our young heroes Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur) and Devon Evans (Björgvin Arnarson) throw heart eyes in each other’s direction throughout Season 1 made all the heartache and bloodshed worthwhile. However, now that they’re both orphans (Chucky sent Devon’s mom tumbling to her death and managed to gank three of Jake’s guardians) we can’t help but worry about this burgeoning love story. Will they survive the emotional whiplash and physical trauma Chucky will no doubt throw their way in Season 2?
3. Lexy & Jake Being Best Bros
From enemies to besties, Jake and Lexy Cross’ (Alyvia Alyn Lind) friendship was a welcome surprise in Season 1. Some part of us never wanted to forgive Lexy for the cruel joke she played on Jake at the Halloween party (Mocking your classmate’s dad’s death? Very not cool) but if Jake’s willing to forgive and forget, so are we. Besides, Lexy was going through a lot, too.
Once Jake and Lexy got to know each other, they proved to be one hell of a team.
And now? They’re bonded forever. Something tells us they’re going to need all the support they can get in Season 2, so this little found family of traumatized teens will have to band together to overcome Chucky’s inevitable wrath.
The cat’s out of the bag! Glen/Glenda, Chucky and Tiffany’s nonbinary child first introduced at the end of “Bride of Chucky” (1998) and expanded upon in “Seed of Chucky” (2004), will be joining the madness in “Chucky” Season 2. They’ll be portrayed by Lachlan Watson, best known for their work in Netflix’s “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” and we’ve even already gotten a first look at their signature red hair and the cute tie-dye T-shirt they’ll be sporting.
Watson hanging out on set with Jennifer Tilly (who, of course, plays their mother, Tiffany) doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but Tiffany DID name-drop Glenda in Season 1, so we know at the very least they’re in touch — and their relationship is solid enough for Glenda to provide their mother with an explosive gift or two.
How will Glen/Glenda fit into Chucky and Tiffany’s various plans in Season 2? We can’t wait to find out.
5. Nica's Revenge
Last but not least, who amongst us didn’t gasp upon learning what Tiffany did to Nica (Fiona Dourif)? As if being possessed by an errant shard of Chucky’s soul weren’t bad enough, Tiffany had to go and amputate her limbs to keep her from escaping.
We get it, Tiff, you’re in love; you want to keep her from escaping and stop Chucky’s psyche from being able to cause mischief when Nica’s not in control. But damn, girl.
Nica’s been through a lot in her life, usually at the hands of a pair of psychopathic lovebirds. Now that she’s physically at Tiffany’s mercy, we’re worried. Really worried. But what we’re really dying to see is her revenge. Sweet, sweet revenge. Here’s hoping she gets some before the end.
You can catch up on "Chucky" Season 1 on Peacock before the Season 2 premiere.
