‘Chucky’ Creator On Potential Season 4: “I Already Pitched It To The Network”

Don Mancini, creator of Chucky, is discussing a potential fourth season and has an idea of where to take the show despite not knowing what the future holds for it.

The Syfy and USA Network show is currently airing the backend episodes of Season 3, and the networks have not confirmed if the show will have a Season 4.

“There’s very little I can say about that. I can’t tell you my idea for Season 4, but I’m really excited about it. I already pitched it to the network. So fingers crossed because it’s something I really like to do,” Mancini told The Direct in an interview.

Mancini teased that if a fourth season were to happen, the storyline would take another left turn.

“I think it’s really fun, new, and again, another left turn in terms of what we’ve been doing so far,” he said. “We don’t know the status of the show yet. So again, fingers crossed that we will get picked up, right?”

Devon Sawa, who plays U.S. President Collins in the series, is hopeful that the show will continue.

“Yeah, I’m optimistic. I’m optimistic. I’ve heard a little bit of the season unless it’s changed. But again, it’s Don [Mancini] raising the bar,” Sawa said.

The Chucky series serves as a sequel to Cult of Chucky and follows 14-year-old Jake Wheeler, played by Zackary Arthur, who buys a Good Guy doll at a yard sale, not knowing the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray possesses it. Season 3 of the series was split in two as production was interrupted due to the SAG-AFTRA strikes last summer. The remaining four episodes of the season started airing on April 10, with the season finale scheduled for May 1, 2024, with the episode titled “Final Destination.”
