Fiona Dourif will reprise her role as Nica Pierce in Chucky Season 2.
Nica, Dourif's character, originally appears in Curse of Chucky as a young paraplegic woman who is blamed for the acts of the doll, then reappeared in Cult of Chucky only to be possessed by the killer and flee with Jennifer Tilly's Tiffany.
Chucky Season 2: Watch out for Nica Pearce
In a Twitter post, series creator Don Mancini revealed that Dourif would indeed return for Chucky Season 2. The photo depicts the two in what appears to be a backstage setting, with the caption "NICA HAS LANDED."
The television series, which began shortly after the events of the 2017 installment, followed Nica's struggle to reclaim control of her body as well as her relationship with Tiffany, which culminated in a contentious ending.
Tiffany sedated Nica and surgically amputated her arms and legs to ensure Chucky would not attack her for wanting to keep Nica alive. Many fans of the franchise felt that this scene betrayed Nica's character, who they considered had already endured enough.
Given how her story ended, people questioned whether she would ever return.
Chucky Season 2 release date
Although no official premiere date has been revealed, we believe Chucky Season 2 will be released in late September or early October 2022, just in time for Halloween. The Wrap also says that production on the second season has begun.
Dourif isn't the only returning cast member for Chucky Season 2. Tilly and Devon Sawa have both previously been announced for Season 2. Despite the fact that his characters, twins Lucas and Logan Wheeler, died in Season 1, Sawa claimed that he is playing a new character this time around, but details about the role are being kept under wraps. Back in April, the actor hinted at the start of production.
Given how upsetting Nica's fate was in the Season 1 finale, viewers can only hope that her ordeal is finally ended and that she will find a means to avenge herself.
