As production continues on Chucky Season 2, Syfy and the USA Network have officially announced the addition of Lachlan Watson in the upcoming new installment of the slasher horror series. Watson is set to portray the roles of Glen/Glenda, Chucky and Tiffany’s genderfluid child from the 2004 film Seed of Chucky.
Watson is best known for their role as Theo Putnam in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. This marks their first major TV project since the Kiernan Shipka-led supernatural series ended its run last 2020.

The Chucky series stars Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, Bjorgvin Arnarson, and Alyvia Alyn Lind along with Devon Sawa, Lexa Doig, and Barbara Alyn Woods along with franchise vets Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, and Fiona Dourif.
“Season 1 is set in an idyllic American town thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders sweep through and threaten to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets, all of which come on the heels of a vintage Chucky doll turning up at a suburban yard sale,” reads the official synopsis. “At the same time, the titular doll must deal with the arrival of enemies and allies from his past who threaten to expose the truth behind the killings and the untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child turned demonic killer.”
Chucky is created and executive produced by franchise creator Don Mancini, who is also serving as the showrunner and director. Executive producers are franchise producer and doll creator David Kirschner and Nick Antosca via his Eat the Cat production label.
