Good news today for fans of delicious and twisted horror series. Syfy has just confirmed that they renewed not one but two different shows. First off is Chucky, which is getting a third season. Equally important is the confirmation of a second season for the delightful Reginald the Vampire, which we covered here at The Workprint.
As for reasons for the renewal, that’s quite simple – both shows have been massive hits. Chucky ranked as a top 10 drama in the 18-49 year old demographic; while Reginald the Vampire ranked as the number 2 drama in the same demographic in the Wednesday 10 PM timeslot. Here’s quotes from both series about the positive news:
“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. 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,” said executive producer Don Mancini.
“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 executive producer Harley Peyton. “All of us – cast and crew, writers, producers, and — can hardly wait.”
Be sure and watch the trailers for both shows. And stay tuned to The Workprint for more epic entertainment you need to watch in 2023.
