Although fans were initially skeptical of the series being a poor attempt at the classic horror/slasher franchise, the series actually turned out to be a welcome surprise. The TV adaptation managed to tap into the essence of what makes Child’s Play such a great franchise. By the end of season one, Chucky’s plans were foiled but he was not done.

This includes Devon, Lexy, and Jake, along with his ex Tiffany, who’s now his sworn enemy. In the finale episode of the series, the murderous doll chose Christmas Eve to reveal that he wasn’t dead even after the exorcism that happened in the penultimate episode. However, if you take a look at Chucky’s history, it was never as easy to get rid of him. After he transferred himself into a secret Good Guy doll hidden by Dr. Mixter, he finally made his move on the trio.

Has Chucky Been Renewed For A Third Season?

Given how Season 2 has ended, fans would think by now the series should have been renewed. However, at the time of writing, Chucky hasn’t been renewed for a third season.

So far, the series has had a really good reaction from critics and audiences alike. However, the ratings tell a different story. The series started with a 0.35 Million viewers mark. However, it has significantly dropped by 55% to the 0.13 Million mark by Season 2. Given how big a role ratings play in a series’ renewal, there is a big chance that the series might not be renewed.

If in case the network does approve the series for a third season, there is a chance that the new season will air at some point in late 2023. This is mostly because cable loves series that have a quick turnaround time. With Chucky having a comparatively small batch of episodes per season, the expected time of arrival is fairly faster.
