'Wednesday' Season 2: Release Date, Plot, Trailers, and Images

Wednesday Addams' adventures at the Never Again Academy have only just begun... Netflix has already confirmed the second season.

Wednesday' will have a season 2 between Netflix series. It was something obvious from a few days after its premiere. We had reasons and arguments: in addition to being one of the best Netflix series in 2022 (and one of the best series of 2022 in general), the premiere of 'Wednesday' was a resounding success on the platform, breaking records and slipping into the most views of its history. So what was Netflix waiting for to renew the series? It has not been until the beginning of January 2023 that Netflix confirmed the season with an announcement in the form of a teaser.

The series directed by Tim Burton has taken us into the classrooms of 'Never Again', the school for social misfits in which Jenna Ortega gets into the pale skin of Wednesday Addams. The first season of 'Wednesday' has been marked by mysteries and, although the psychic and detective skills of the little Addams have revealed almost all of them, at the end of the eighth and final episode the door seems open to continuing her story. As we pointed out, the numbers accompany it: 'Wednesday' has broken all viewing records on Netflix, even surpassing 'Stranger Things'. According to their data, the series accumulated 341.2 million hours of viewing worldwide, leaving behind the 335 million hours of season 4 of 'Stranger Things' in the week of May 30 to June 5.

In an interview with Empire, co-creators Alfred Gough and Miles Miller have revealed that they are optimistic about the potential future of 'Wednesday', referring to episodes released as the "first" season of the series. Letting it down that he and Millar have discussed what might come next among themselves, Gough says they're looking forward to exploring the rest of the 'Addams Family' universe. "Miles and I are talking to each other about it. There's definitely a lot more to explore in the Addams world."

2: Release Date

Netflix has already announced that there will be a season 2 but at the moment there is no release date available. What's less clear is whether Tim Burton would return as director, since in the first season he's only directed half the episodes and fellow filmmakers Gandja Monteiro and James Marshall could take over (or new names).

To speculate more accurately we should wait to know the start of filming for this new season. Taking into account that this has not yet occurred, it is normal to think that 2024 will be the most natural date to wait for the series, with 2023 almost ruled out.

'Wednesday', season 2: Synopsis

The possibilities are endless. The logical thing would be to place the plot in a new school year in 'Never Again', following the same structure as the 'Harry Potter' movies (with which the Netflix series shares many parallels). But it would be spectacular to move the action to the Addams mansion and bring back several of its mythical characters on a regular basis: Uncle Fetid, Cousin That, Grandma...

In an interview with TVLine, the creator talked about the possible storyline for season 2 and how the protagonist will have to learn to deal with her friendships (and her emotions) from her:

"The show is really about a girl who sees the world in black and white and has to learn that there are shades of gray too. I think, like any relationship or friendship, it can be complicated by other factors. It's never going to be easy. And it's really her learning to navigate the ups and downs of friendship"

'Wednesday', season 2: Cast

Obviously, the return of Jenna Ortega is a must as Wednesday Addams. The actress had a huge challenge ahead of her since Christina Ricci's Wednesday is an icon of popular culture. But Ortega has more than complied and is the main success of this reboot of the franchise. Thing, the severed hand that accompanies her everywhere, is the other great interpretation of the series. We seriously mean it. She has to come back yes or yes.

Other members of the Family such as Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones), Gomez (Luis Guzmán), Pugsley (Isaac Ordoñez), Largo (George Burcea), and Uncle Foul (Fred Armisen) should return, as well as Wednesday's best friends in the 'Nevermore' Academy, Enid (Emma Myers), Xavier (Percy Hynes White), Bianca (Joy Sunday) and Eugene (Moosa Mostafa).

The ones we could rule out, for obvious reasons, are Christina Ricci as Professor Thornhill, Principal Weems (Gwendoline Christie), and Dr. Kinbott (Riki Lindhome). And we question Tyler Galpin (Hunter Doohan) because we don't know if we will resume his story or if he will be left out of the plot.
