Chucky Star Jennifer Tilly Says She “Cheated” Bonded Co-Stars To Appear In Series

As previously confirmed, Chucky season two will bring a very meta-storyline to the series with Jennifer Tilly’s Bound co-stars Gina Gershon and Joe Pantoliano appearing in one of the new episodes. The trio previously appeared together in the 1996 feature film The Wachowskis and will be reunited in the TV spin-off of the long-running slasher series. Speaking at the show’s New York Comic Con panel this weekend, Tilly teased the return of her co-stars on the series and joked that she tricked them both into appearing in the show’s fourth episode.

“In episode four we pay tribute to Bound,” said Tilly (H/T Weekly entertainment). “Don Mancini has always been fascinated by Bound, and there’s a Bound reference of sorts in a lot of the movies. Like the end of Cult of Chucky, when I kiss Nica (Fiona Dourif), and we drive into the horizon in a red truck, which instantly mimics the ending of Bound. So Don said to me, “Do you think Gina and Joey would want to guest star in Chucky?” And I was like, ‘I’ll make a phone call.’ So I called, of course they both refused. [But] When I told Gina that Joey was going to do it, Gina wanted to do it too because they’re so competitive, they bicker like cats and dogs, and they just want to do what the other person is doing.”

“We’re excited to be pulling the strings of a second season of charade mayhem with Chucky,” series creator Don Mancini said in a statement when the new season was confirmed. “Many thanks to our partners at USA, Syfy and UCP for their incredible support and guidance in bringing Chucky to the small screen bigger than ever. And to the fans Chucky continues to send his undying thanks and a message: ‘This is’ It’s far from over. You’d better be on your guard in 2022!'”

In the penultimate episode of the show, it was revealed that part of Chucky’s plan in the series was to gather an army of Good Guy Dolls, eventually giving him over 70 Chucky dolls he once owned. The show’s season finale ended with the promise that all these Chuckys would be scattered all over the country, the full plan for Chuckys’ army isn’t quite clear, but they’re coming, and they aren’t the only ones either.

The entire first season of Chucky is now streaming on Peacock. New episodes of Chucky airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on SYFY and USA Network.
