Introduced in 1988 with ‘Child’s Play,’ Chucky is not your typical Good Guy doll with his striped shirt and overalls; he’s a pint-sized psychopath with a penchant for serial murder. Despite his diminutive size and speed, Chucky makes a lasting impression in the horror genre with inventive kills and clever plot twists. Chucky has appeared in eight films so far and a single TV series with 20 episodes across three seasons.

Due to the fact that the scariest doll in horror movies has appeared in quite a bit of sequels, we decided to prepare this comprehensive watch order.

Editor’s Note: This watch order was updated in October 2023 with the conclusion of ‘Chucky’ Season 3 Part 1, part 2 is expected to be released in 2024.

Are all ‘Chucky’ movies connected? What’s the best way to watch them?

Most of the “Chucky” movies are connected as they follow a consistent storyline centered around Chucky. The main continuity begins with the film ‘Child’s Play’ in 1988, and it is followed by several sequels that continue the narrative.

However, there is also a reboot of the franchise titled ‘Child’s Play’ released in 2019, which takes a different approach to the story and is not directly connected to the original series. The show currently has three released seasons and is also connected to the main timeline, and due to this, the best way to watch projects featuring Chucky is in chronological order.

All movies & a TV Show featuring Chucky in chronological order

Contrary to popular belief, ‘Child’s Play’ franchise also includes a TV show that is part of the same continuity. The movie that was released in 2019 is a reboot, however, and shouldn’t be taken into account if you want to experience the original timeline. Here’s the chronological order of the movies & a TV show.

  1. ‘Child’s Play’ (1988)
  2. ‘Child’s Play 2’ (1990)
  3. ‘Child’s Play 3’ (1991)
  4. ‘Bride of Chucky’ (1998)
  5. ‘Seed of Chucky’ (2004)
  6. ‘Curse of Chucky’ (2013)
  7. ‘Cult of Chucky’ (2017)
  8. Chucky Season 1 (2021)
  9. Chucky Season 2 (2022)
  10. Chucky Season 3 (2023 – ongoing)
  11. ‘Child’s Play’ (2019)

The franchise began with ‘Child’s Play’ and the events of ‘Child’s Play 2’ take place two years after the first film and Chucky’s first death. ‘Child’s Play 3’ takes place eight years after the events of the second movie, but ‘Bride of Chucky’ will somewhat reset everything by changing the direction in which the movies are going.

‘Seed of Chucky’ takes place six years after ‘Bride of Chucky’ and somewhat continues the premise until the ‘Curse of Chucky,’ which focuses on Nica Pierce and her mother, Sarah, instead of continuing the narrative. ‘Cult of Chucky’ takes place in 2017, 4 years after ‘Curse of Chucky,’ and we see Nica once again. The TV show is actually a sequel to ‘Cult of Chucky’ and takes place only four months after the events of the movie.

‘Child’s Play’ movie released in 2019 is a reboot of the franchise and technically should be watched as a standalone movie since it’s not connected to the mainline series or the TV show.

Where to watch the above-mentioned movies and the TV show?

All movies from the original ‘Child’s Play’ franchise can be rented on Apple TV or streamed via Peacock. When it comes to Chucky’s standalone show, two seasons can be streamed on AMC+, and three seasons are so far available on Peacock. ‘Child’s Play’ movie, released in 2019, can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video and AMC+.

Will there be more shows & movies featuring Chucky?

Well, the ‘Chucky’ TV show is in the middle of the third season. The first part aired just a few days ago, and the second part, consisting of 4 episodes, is scheduled to be released in 2024. As far as the movies go, following the release of 2019 ‘Child’s Play,’ there were plans to make a movie if the reboot proved to be successful; however, in the meantime, the TV show was released, which makes the potential sequel unlikely.
