Filming for the second season began on April 20, 2022, and concluded on August 29, 2022, in Toronto. This season sees the addition of Lachlan Watson as Glen and Glenda Ray, characters whose scenes had to be carefully planned into schedule, since each of them needed a different characterization that took an hour to complete at the hair and makeup department. Watson, who is a non-binary person and goes by gender-neutral pronouns, explained that the camera would be set and film them as Glenda, then they would change their costume and return to be filmed as Glen, with a ear piece that played the lines they had recorded previously. "When you're in that environment the timing has to be perfect. So that was a big learning curve", Watson said.
For over 30 years, "Child's Play" creator Don Mancini has been the beating, bleeding heart behind horror's favorite possessed plastic pal, and the first season of the TV series named for the demented doll successfully takes Mancini's canon of seven films and blends them all together in a cacophony of all things "Chucky." Mancini has consistently stayed true to his vision, and the "Child's Play" franchise has evolved from a traditional slasher, to high-camp concepts that only work if the audience completely buys into Mancini's unique brand of horror which includes split personalities, cults, terrorizing children, offensive one-liners, and an army of killer dolls.
There are definitely some solid parts of season 2 of Chucky. In some ways, the Chucky TV show is better than the movies and the premiere episode has a shocking and perfectly crafted scene when Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) drives a truck that is packed with Good Guy dolls off a cliff. This is exactly the entertainment that fans of the Child's Play slasher franchise are looking for. 781b155fdc
