What Will Happen in Chucky Season 3?
No official plot synopsis for Chucky season 3 has been revealed yet. Based on the crazy cliffhanger ending of season 2, we can expect the new season to pick up right where we left off.
At the end of season 2, Chucky succeeded in transferring his soul into the body of Nica Pierce. Meanwhile, Tiffany was heartbroken to learn Chucky had no intention of marrying her. A post-credits scene also showed Chucky mailing himself to a new victim.
Season 3 will likely continue Chucky’s quest for vengeance against his original foes, Andy and Kyle. Now inhabiting Nica’s body, Chucky will be more human-like and mobile than ever before. Expect him to come up with creative new ways to torture the survivors from his past.
Jake, Devon, and Lexy will also continue trying to stop Chucky’s murder spree. With Jake and Devon aware that Chucky can possess multiple dolls at once, they’ll have to find a way to stop him for good.
We’ll also learn more about Tiffany and if she will stay loyal to Chucky or branch out on her own. As the season 2 ending proved, no character is safe from Chucky’s evil goals.

SYFY released an official teaser trailer for Chucky season 3 on September 1, 2023. The short but creepy video features close up shots of Chucky with his iconic creepy laugh and unsettling one-liners like “revenge feels good.”
Brief clips hint at Chucky coming after Andy and also threatening Jake and Lexy. Nica, now controlled by Chucky, also makes an appearance, promising “His soul is inside me now.”
While short on details, the Chucky season 3 trailer amps up the horror factor and serves as a chilling reminder of the terror to come when the show returns in October.
