Syfy Renews 'Chucky' and 'Reginald the Vampire'

During the network's presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour today, Syfy renewed its original drama series Chucky and Reginald the Vampire for their third and second seasons, respectively.

Chucky stars Zackary Arthur, Bj√∂rgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind and Brad Dourif.

Don Mancini created the drama. He executive produces with Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner and Jeff Renfroe. Universal Content Productions and Eat the Cat produce.

"The cast and crew of Chucky would like to thank fans and critics alike for their overwhelming response to season two, which we're delighted to announce has now spurred the official greenlight on season three," said Mancini. "This news has made Chucky very happy. Thank Damballa for that because otherwise Chucky would have been frankly impossible to deal with. Many thanks also to our partners at Syfy, USA and UCP for helping us keep Chucky busy. See you in 2023 for what Chucky himself promises will be his scariest season ever."

Reginald the Vampire stars Jacob Batalon, Mandela Van Peebles, Em Haine, Georgia Waters, Marguerite Hanna, Aren Buchholz, Savannah Basley and Sean Yves Lessard. 

Harley Peyton created the drama based on the book series by Johnny B. Truant. He executive produces with Jeremiah Chechik, Todd Berger, Lindsay Macadam, Brett Burlock and Peter Emerson. Great Pacific Media, Modern Story Company, December Films and Cineflix Studios produce.

"The only thing better than getting the opportunity to make a season of television with Syfy is to get the opportunity to do it again," said Peyton. "All of us - cast and crew, writers and producers - can hardly wait."
