SYFY Unveils 2024 Slate: Resident Alien, Chucky, Reginald the Vampire, The Ark & SurrealEstate Renewed

SYFY is about to have one of its busiest years ever with the return of four original series.

By Josh Weiss

You might want to start marking those calendars, people! That's because SYFY is gearing up for one of its busiest years in a while with the return of four — count 'em! — original series: Resident Alien (Season 3), Chucky (the second half of its third season), Reginald the Vampire (Season 2), and The Ark (Season 2). In addition, SurrealEstate has been renewed for a third season!

How to Watch

Watch new episodes of Resident Alien Wednesdays at 10/9c on SYFY and next day on Peacock.

"Go big or go home," the network wrote on X (formerly Twitter) alongside a juicy teaser of what fans can expect to see in the coming months. "Get ready for an unforgettable year on SYFY!" While only 30 seconds long, the video does a fantastic job of setting up the various storylines viewers can expect to see in each show.

Resident Alien's third outing — which premiered this week! — finds Doctor Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk) and General McCallister (Linda Hamilton) joining forces to defeat the Greys. Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif), meanwhile, isn't looking too hot in the latter half of his own third season — kicking off April 10 — with the killer doll admitting to Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) that he may not have much time left.

Scheduled to debut on the evening of May 8, the second season of Reginald the Vampire sees newly-initiated bloodsucker, Reginald Andres (Jacob Batalon), working to reform his fanged kin into a force for good. And, finally, we have the sophomore season of The Ark ready to face more cosmic threats sometime this summer (a premiere date and time have yet to be confirmed).

Based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, Resident Alien hails from showrunner Chris Sheridan (previously of Family Guy). Don Mancini, creator and longtime curator of the Child's Play franchise, oversees operations on Chucky. Harley Peyton, a writer and executive producer on Chucky, developed Reginald the Vampire for television, drawing from Johnny B. Truant's Fat Vampire novels. The Ark was co-created by Dean Devlin (screenwriter of Independence Day and Godzilla) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1), both of whom serve as showrunners. George R. Olson created showruns SurrealEstate, which centers around the operators of a real estate business that specializes in the exorcism of haunted houses.
