Chucky creator Don Mancini recently confirmed that Fiona Dourif is returning for Season 2 of the hit TV series. Chucky will return this fall on Syfy and USA.
Mancini recently tweeted, “NICA HAS LANDED @fionadourif #Chucky #Season2,” with a photo of him and Fiona behind him peeking over his shoulder.
Fiona is the daughter of Brad Dourif, who has played serial killer Charles Lee Ray, the spirit who inhabits the Chucky doll, since the franchise’s debut with 1988’s Child’s Play. He has also played Ray in flashbacks in some of the films. Fiona entered the franchise with 2013’s Curse of Chucky. She played a paraplegic woman, Nica Pierce, who was being stalked by the infamous killer doll. The Chucky TV series picks up where the last film, 2017’s Cult of Chucky, left off. Ray possesses Nica Pierce, and she leaves town with Chucky’s longtime girlfriend, Tiffany Valentine (Jennifer Tilly).
During Season 1, Fiona played both Nica and Charles Lee Ray as she and Tiffany continued their adventures. However, the series left viewers hanging with Tiffany severing Nica’s arms and legs. However, Chucky fans can rest assured that Fiona is returning.
Screen Rant reported that Devon Sawa is returning also, despite the fact that his characters, twins Lucas and Logan Wheeler, have been killed off. According to Screen Rant, Sawa will be playing a new character. There are no further details available about Sawa’s role. SyFy confirmed other cast members returning include Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, Björgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, Christine Elise as Kyle, and Barbara Alyn Woods as Mayor Michelle Cross.
Produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, production on Chucky’s Season 2 began in April and filming is currently underway. Mancini serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner, and Jeff Renfroe.
Syfy reports that the show’s first season had 11.6 million viewers on all platforms. Chucky’s entire first season is currently available for binging on Peacock.
