Chucky Season 2 (2022)

Why should you give this series a chance, assuming you haven’t already? For one thing, Chucky maestro Don Mancini created it himself. The genius actor Brad Dourif continues to voice Chucky, and franchise veteran Jennifer Tilly is back too. As if they weren’t enough, Dourif’s real-life daughter, Fiona Dourif, is also in the cast. The show is nuts. It's a hit for a reason. Chucky fans and horror fans will both be satisfied, and so will anyone who enjoys fun. Season 3, which brings Chucky into the White House, premieres October 4.

The Ark (2023)

This outer space survival thriller from co-creators Dean Devlin (Independence Day) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1) drops you aboard the Ark One, an interstellar vessel headed for a new planet that will allow humanity to keep on keeping on. Why? Because we kind of ruined Earth with all of that environmental devastation stuff. When a sudden cosmic catastrophe strikes and kills the people running the ship, it's up to the survivors to band together and put their diverse skillsets to work in an effort to complete the mission.

The Twilight Zone (2019)

Jordan Peele brought new life to this classic anthology series in 2009. The updated and rebooted series didn't last long, but some select episodes are available on the SYFY app right now. Peele himself often serves in the hosting role, and that alone makes it worthwhile. There's also a wide array of guest stars popping in and out, with Kumail Nanjiani leading the charge in the first episode. That one is on the app right now, so journey into a wondrous land of imagination.
