The Addams Family are back in Tim Burton and Netflix’s Wednesday, a new dramatization of the gothic dynasty co-created by Burton.
Jenny Ortega, star of Scream and You season 2, assumes the legendary role of Wednesday Addams, a dark antiheroine for the series as she enters a new school.
Nonetheless, when a mystery entity goes on a horrible killing spree in the neighboring village, Wednesday must attempt to harness her burgeoning psychic gift in order to aid her parents and make new friends.
Meanwhile, original Addams Family star Christina Ricci becomes Marilyn Thornhill, which new Wednesday actor Jenny Ortega found “very weird.”

Jenna Ortega, star of the new Netflix series Wednesday, discusses working with Tim Burton and sharing scenes with her predecessor as Wednesday Addams with RadioTimes.com.
“I believe she is an excellent character actress. In my mind, I know her as Wednesday, so meeting her was daunting. But because she is so wonderful and talented, she made it quite simple “Ortega said Variety. “It felt improper. I desired to present it to her.”
In addition to Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Riki Lindhome, and Gwendoline Christie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Riki Lindhome, and Gwendoline Christie all star in this typically Burton-esque comedy, leaving fans to wonder if it will return for a second season.
Here is all we know so far about the second season of Wednesday.
- Wednesday’s second season has not yet been confirmed.
Netflix has not yet declared if Wednesday will return for a second season, but the show’s creators remain optimistic about the Addams Family adaptation.
Co-creator Alfred Gough told Empire (via ScreenRant) on the future of the show: “Miles [Millar] and I are discussing it amongst ourselves. There is much more to discover in the Addams family universe.”
The actress who portrays Wednesday, Jenna Ortega, told NME that she had “no idea” if the show will return.
We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed that the Nevermore Academy’s doors reopen!
- When may a hypothetical second season of Wednesday premiere?
While Netflix has not officially confirmed if Wednesday will return for a second season, we can make an informed guess as to when we may anticipate the show’s return if it receives the green light.
Filming for the Tim Burton movie started in September last year and ended in March 2022. Because of this, it is unlikely that the second season of Wednesday will come out before the start of 2024.
- Who could star in a hypothetical second season of Wednesday?
Joy Sunday appears on Wednesday as Bianca Barclay.
Members of the cast of The Next Wednesday may return for a second season.

It wouldn’t be Wednesday without Jenna Ortega playing the legendary role of goth teen Wednesday Addams, with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, and Fred Armisen likely to reprise their roles as Morticia, Gomez, Pugsley, and Uncle Fester, respectively.
While it remains to be seen what will become of the characters introduced in the show – especially as a monstrous killing spree terrorizes the local town near Nevermore Academy in season 1 – hopefully, we’ll see the likes of Gwendoline Christie (Principal Larissa Weems), Jamie McShane (Sheriff Galpin), Percy Hynes White (Xavier Thorpe), Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid.
- What may be the plot of the second season of Wednesday?
Wednesday Netflix features Luis Guzman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Isaac Ordonez.
With the overall plot of Wednesday being tightly guarded, it’s difficult to predict what a second season might focus on, especially with so many supernatural elements in play – however, with the Nevermore Academy, a cast of new characters, and a serial killer on the loose, there’s a lot to unpack.
From Wednesday’s strange new school to Tim Burton’s version of the Addams Family, season 2 could go deeper into the Addams universe. However, Ortega has said that the show ties up enough loose ends for it to end after just one season.
She told NME, “It may continue, but it could also end.” “I think that’s one of the beautiful things about the show — we have a choice.”
However, we do know that season 1 concludes with an “Ortega said, “I recall there being a lot of night shoots for the finale. And I recall there being a great deal of fire….”
Wednesday is currently available on Netflix. Netflix memberships start at £6.99 per month. Netflix is also accessible through Virgin Media Stream and Sky Glass.
