‘Wednesday’ Season 2: Everything We Know About It

Wednesday Season 2 promises more action and horror, with each episode feeling like a movie rather than episodic. The season leans more into horror and ditches romantic subplots, bringing back familiar characters and star-studded guests. Production for Season 2 will be in Ireland, adding new series regulars and promising an exciting and star-studded cast.

What’s New in Season 2?

Jenna Ortega returns as the most malevolent schoolgirl, and Netflix is kicking off production for Wednesday Season 2 in Ireland. Thing, the Addams family’s iconic hand, is delivering scripts to the cast, while also starring in Netflix’s new TikTok channel, “Thing Tok,” for a quirky, behind-the-scenes look at all things Wednesday.

Casting Changes in “Wednesday”

The sophomore season of “Wednesday” will bring several casting alterations. Some actors from the first season won’t be reprising their roles, including Percy Hynes White, Jamie McShane, and Naomi J Ogawa, as confirmed by Deadline. They won’t be returning as series regulars. White played Xavier Thorpe, and Ogawa portrayed Yoko Tanaka. McShane, on the other hand, is slated to return as Sheriff Donovan Galpin, but only as a guest appearance.

Creator’s Insights

Showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar expressed their excitement in a statement, saying:

“We are thrilled that the entire Addams family will be enrolling in Nevermore Academy this season along with a dream cast of icons and new faces.”

How Will Wednesday Season 2 Be Different?

Jenna Ortega has already promised that Season 2 will feature more action and horror compared to the show’s debut. Speaking on the red carpet during the Primetime Emmy Awards, she said:

“We’re definitely leaning into a little bit more horror. It’s really, really exciting because, all throughout the show, while Wednesday does need a little bit of an arc, she never really changes, and that’s the wonderful thing about her. There’s really, really good one-liners, and I think everything’s bigger. It’s a lot more action-packed. Each episode will probably feel a little bit more like a movie, which is nice.”

Ortega has also been vocal about the shift away from romantic subplots for Wednesday Addams:

“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. We’re ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great.”

Behind the Scenes

Wednesday comes from MGM Television and was created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who also serve as co-showrunners. Tim Burton is an executive producer alongside Steve Stark for Toluca Pictures, Andrew Mittman for 1.21 Entertainment, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman, Gail Berman, Tommy Harper, Kevin Lafferty, and Gough and Millar for their Millar Gough Ink banner.
