Syfy always manages to make October fun, doesn’t it? In addition to their original films, they roll out new and returning series, and this October will be no exception to the rule.

Syfy series Chucky, which is based on the Child’s Play series of films surprised viewers with how engrossing and fun it was, and now the third season of Chucky will be hitting Syfy in October (just as the prior two seasons did).

Most horror fans are familiar with the homicidal red-haired “Good Guy” doll, and the series has achieved quite a following over its first two seasons. Even though most of the characters were new, there is a nice mix of new victims characters and some familiar faces from the films. Even Alex Vincent, who played little Andy Barclay in Child’s Play when he was only seven years old appears in the series!

We also got to see the returns of characters such as Nica (Fiona Dourif), Kyle (Christine Elise), Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly), and best of all, Brad Dourif reprised his role as the voice of Chucky.

The series began with Jake (Zackary Arthur) finding a Good Guy doll at a yard sale, intending to use it for an art project. Unfortunately for him, this isn’t just any GG doll, it’s Chucky, who happens to be possessed by the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray.

Throughout the first two seasons, Jake and his friends have been menaced (and sometimes killed) by Chucky, all while dealing with modern day teen angst and issues such as sexuality and bullying. It remains to be seen what the third season will bring, but I can’t wait to find out.

Season three of Chucky will premiere on Syfy/USA Wednesday, October 4th at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Each episode will be available to stream the next day on Peacock.

Also premiering on Syfy October 4th is season two of SurrealEstate. In this spooky series, real estate agent Luke Roman (Tim Rozon) and his trusty group of paranormal experts investigate houses that are said to be haunted. As such, it’s often hard to find buyers, so together, Luke and his team do their research and figure out how to clear the homes of negative energy so they can sell to their forever families.

The first season of SurrealEstate was released in 2021, and Syfy had originally declined to renew it for a second season. However, in May of the following year, the network reversed their decision, and thus it is returning in October.

Each episode of SurrealEstate will run at 10:00 p.m. ET on Wednesdays following Chucky.
