We pledge allegiance to the Chuck, especially after watching the new teaser for the upcoming third season of the critically acclaimed Chucky TV series. After getting an iconic speech from the red-headed menace himself just a few weeks ago, we now have our first official look at the new season and it’s getting downright political.
No, really, it is because it looks like a Good Guy doll has found his way into the heart of the President’s son. Chucky with access to the Oval Office? Bone-chilling. Oh, and the President is played by well-known Chucky hater Devon Sawa (he’s a series staple, playing Jake’s dad and uncle in the first season and Father Bryce in season two).
Read the full synopsis for 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.
Watch the teaser below:
The series is a favorite over here at Dread Central with its gnarly kills and incredible queer representation, both thanks to the incredible mind of Don Mancini. His work on the series has been by GLAAD, who nominated Chucky twice for their Media Awards.
Starting on October 4, new episodes of Chucky will air every Wednesday at 9 PM ET/PT on Syfy and USA. Episodes will stream the next day on Peacock.
