Netflix’s ‘Wednesday’ is getting a second season, so here’s what we know so far

Netflix's 'Wednesday' Season 2: plot, cast, trailer and release date

Netflix's smash hit show Wednesday has been confirmed for Season 2, which is honestly no surprise given the cultural phenomenon it became on the internet last year – from that prom scene dance surging The Cramps' Goo Goo Muck up to the number one spot on the Billboard charts, to the subsequent resurgence of 'goth girl' aesthetics in the fashion world.

Over the weekend, Netflix's Tudum: A Global Fan Event, which was held in Brazil, gave us the first taste of what to expect for the next season of the television show, and a look back at some of some popular fan theories, via a teaser trailer featuring some of the cast's breakout stars.

What can we expect from Season 2?

In the teaser released, cast members confirmed a fan theory that a new Addams family member would be joining the storyline for the next season – exactly who that might be is still up for debate.

Jenna Ortega also revealed she would be co-producing this next season, saying in a recent Variety 'Actors On Actors' interview with Elle Fanning that “We’ve decided we want to lean into the horror aspect of the show a little bit more. Because it is so lighthearted, and a show like this with vampires and werewolves and superpowers, you don’t want to take yourself too seriously.”

Who is cast in Wednesday Season 2?

Of course, it wouldn't be Wednesday without Jenna Ortega reprising her titular role. She's also likely to be joined by fellow Season 1 castmates Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair), and Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay), alongside Addams family members, Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia Addams), Luis Guzmán (Gomez Addams), Isaac Ordonez (Pugsley Addams), and Fred Armisen (Uncle Fester).

Even Gwendoline Christie, it seems, has teased her character's return from spoiler beyond the grave. Having said in an interview, "We haven’t seen her put in the ground, have we?"

When is Wednesday Season 2 being released?

Wednesday Season 2 will be coming to Netflix in early to mid-2024.
