SYFY: Spring/Summer Slate with ‘Reginald the Vampire’ & More

by Neil Bui

SYFY announced the premiere dates for its upcoming slate of original series including Reginald the Vampire, Chucky, and The Ark.

Chucky returns for the second half of its third season on Wednesday, April 10 at 10 pm after a recording setting first half. Across all platforms, the first half was the most-watched season of any USA/SYFY series since 2021 in the 18-49 demographic, making it the #1 series of 2023 for USA/SYFY. The series is returning with more LBGTQ+ plotlines from the director and series creator Don Mancini.

Synopsis: In Chucky’s unending thirst for power, season 3 sees Chucky ensconced with the most powerful family in the world — America’s First Family, inside the infamous walls of the White House. How did Chucky wind up here? What in God’s name does he want?  And how can Jake, Devon and Lexy possibly get to Chucky inside the world’s most secure house, all while balancing the pressures of romantic relationships and growing up? Meanwhile, Tiffany faces looming execution on death row for “Jennifer Tilly’s” murderous rampage. 

Reginald the Vampire premieres its second season on Wednesday, May 8 at 10 pm. With its first season, the series was cable’s #2 scripted program in both total viewers and the 18-49 demographic.

Synopsis: Reginald Andres finally got his life together when he was turned into a vampire.  While he doesn’t fit into the stereotypical expectations of what a vampire looks like – he’s not chiseled or classically handsome – Reginald has found his place amongst an unlikely cohort that includes the cool vampire who sired him, the former vampire chieftain turned unexpected ally (or is she?) and his co-worker/former girlfriend. A show with a lot of heart and just enough blood, Reginald the Vampire proves the undead life is just as complicated as life itself. 

The second season of The Ark will air during the summer season, after its successful first season which was the most-watched freshman series since 2021 in both viewers and the 18-49 demographic, as well as cable’s #2 original drama in total viewers in its time slot.

Synopsis: The Ark takes place 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first of these missions on a spacecraft known as Ark One encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life. With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.

The fan-favorite horror drama SurrealEstate has been renewed for a third season.

Synopsis: SurrealEstate follows real estate agent Luke Roman and an elite team of specialists that handle the cases no one else can: haunted and possessed houses that literally scare would-be buyers away. Researching, investigating, and “fixing” the things that go bump in the night, the team works to create closure, and closings, even as they struggle with demons of their own.
