Netflix has officially renewed Wednesday for a 2nd season. Find out here when the new episodes might start. Is there already a trailer?
Wednesday is perhaps the most important Netflix discovery of the past year. The character from the morbid Addams family sparked a lasting cultural hype that only hits like Stranger Things, Squid Game or Bridgerton could match. So how does the streaming service continue with its series treasure?
Is Wednesday season 2 already officially confirmed?
Yes, Wednesday season 2 is definitely coming. The streaming service waited an unusually long time to make the official announcement, but all ambiguities have since been cleared up. There is even a short announcement video including a thank you from Wednesday.
Wednesday Season 2: Release date
Wednesday season will not appear until 2024. An official date Netflix did not give out, however, the preparations for the new episodes and finally the shooting will take a lot of time. Therefore, we can expect a release at the beginning of next year at the earliest.
Will Jenna Ortega and Emma Myers return?
The big stars of the first season should also return for Wednesday season 2. Especially without the popular duo Jenna Ortega (Wednesday) and Emma Myers (Enid), the series is unthinkable. You can therefore count on their return, and the same goes for the rest of the cast. Official information is not yet available.
What is known about the plot?
Showrunners Miles Millar and Al Gough have talked a lot about their season 2 plans even before the official confirmation of the sequel . A brief overview:
- Tyler the monster is slated to return in Wednesday season 2
- Wednesday’s family is to play a bigger role. So we will see more of brother Pugsley (Isaac Ordonez), mother Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and father Gomez (Luis Guzmán)
- In addition, the creators want to explore the friendship between Enid and Wednesday further
- Jenna Ortega announced, moreover, to make Wednesday more somber. Even if this does not necessarily correspond to the plans of the showrunners
When will the first trailer for Wednesday season 2 be released?
There is no trailer for Wednesday season 2 yet. Netflix traditionally releases trailers for its series later rather than sooner. We can expect a first teaser at the end of 2023.
Will Wednesday move from Netflix to Amazon Prime in season 2?
Wednesday season 1 was produced for Netflix by the traditional studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (they’re the ones with the lion). However, MGM, as it’s abbreviated, was sold to Amazon over the last year – along with its brands, which includes Wednesday and the Addams Family, respectively. Wednesday is now owned by Amazon and this gave rise to the rumor that the company could snatch the new hit series away from Netflix. There’s no truth to that, though. The contracts between MGM and Netflix are not affected by the acquisition. So no, Wednesday is not moving from Netflix to Amazon.
What are other movies with Wednesday star Jenna Ortega launching?
With Wednesday, Jenna Ortega achieved the final breakthrough. The actress had previously made a name for herself in horror productions such as The Babysitter and X. Her biggest box-office success, Scream will be continued on March 9 with Scream VI, and Ortega is back in a leading role.
