Wednesday, the supernatural horror comedy series based on Wednesday Addams of the Addams Family, dropped on Netflix recently. The show is the coming-of-age story of Wednesday, as she gets enrolled in a creepy school named Nevermore Academy, which hides some unsolved mysteries.
The eight-episode series created by Tim Burton is being praised for its thrills and humor and has left fans asking for more. Audiences are now awaiting the second season of the show. But has Wednesday been renewed for season 2 by Netflix? Read on to find out.
Wednesday Season 2: Has the Show Been Renewed?
At the time of writing, Wednesday has not been renewed for a new season by Netflix. However, fans need not worry as the first season of the show was launched just recently, and the streaming platform usually takes weeks or months before announcing the renewal.
Netflix takes a number of factors into consideration before deciding the fate of a show, including the viewership numbers, reviews, and the budget that went into making a season. What works in favor of Wednesday are the positive reviews that the show is getting. The first season currently has a 69% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Wednesday was initially pitched as a one-season show; however, the show’s co-creator Alfred Gough talked about the possibility of further seasons in an interview. Gough said, “Miles [Millar] and I are talking amongst ourselves about it. There’s definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses.”
Meanwhile, the lead star Jenna Ortega revealed that she has ‘no idea’ whether the show will return. If Wednesday does return for a second season, expect it to release on Netflix by 2024. The first season took around two years to produce, so we can expect a similar time interval before the next season arrives.
What to Expect from Wednesday Season 2?
As of now, there are no details available about the storyline of the second season. However, based on the open-ended themes of the first season, we can expect the upcoming season to delve more into the story of Wednesday’s stalker.
Tyler is also on the loose by the end of season 1, that too, without a master. So the next season will reveal if he redeems himself or ends up becoming more dangerous. The show will also highlight who will be the new Principal of Nevermore Academy after the death of Larissa Weems. The fate of Laurel and Pugsley will also be revealed in the next season.
Who will be Cast in Wednesday Season 2?
The lead cast of the show is expected to return in season 2 if the show gets renewed. The star cast will include Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valeria Kinbott, Jamie McShane as Sheriff Donovan Galpin, Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin, Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe, and Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair.
Other members who are expected to return are Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Otinger, Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay, Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus, Naomi J. Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, Victor Dorobantu as Thing and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams.
