Wednesday Addams has had her way of capturing fans’ hearts since 1938 as a comic character. “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” Yes, we’ve all heard of it. With the announcement that Netflix has ordered the second season for Wednesday, further doubts have arisen. So far, the resilient child of sorrow has been hunted, tormented, nearly slain, and tortured in ways she no doubt liked but which were heavy for viewers nevertheless.
And now that her journey is going to begin, the renowned Goth of Nevermore Academy appears to be on the rise. But what will happen next? Who will and who will not return? Everything will be OK. Meanwhile, here’s a peek at what the global audience thought of this adolescent smash drama.
Wednesday was an instant smash with fans, with a viewership of 150 million, exceeding even the phenomenal popularity of Stranger Things. It became one of the most viewed Netflix series throughout the platform’s history in just over a month.
The Netflix television series is co-directed by Tim Burton, and he is also one of the show’s executive producers. It is based on Charles Addams’ eponymous character. And, if Jenna Ortega wasn’t already well-known, her portrayal of Wednesday Addams has rendered her a worldwide star, globally. Wednesday aired on Netflix on November 16, 2022, and if you haven’t had an opportunity to discover the macabre antics of Morticia and Gomez Addams’ adolescent daughter and her “acquaintances” at the Nevermore Academy, you are severely missing out on some very amazing material.
What can we expect from Wednesday season 2?
Although there isn’t any official notice about the dates of the premier, fans are eager with their questions. The Addams Family has been alive for quite some time now, so there is a wealth of material to draw on. They originated in 1938 as cartoons produced by Charles Addams and featured in the New Yorker.
From then, the comics became a successful TV show in the 1960s and were finally adapted into films in the 1990s, and that’s perhaps how most of us recognize the characters—especially Wednesday, who was portrayed in the movies by Christina Ricci. Ricci even gives a brief cameo on the show as a nod to her previous character, but this time as the antagonist.
Wednesday Addams arrives to discover her new school, Nevermore Academy, in the 2022 slice-of-life series. She has recently discovered psychic skills and magical capabilities, while there are several secrets to solve in her school as well as in her town, involving beasts, chaos, and death. Nevermore and its wonderful aesthetic have been quite crucial to the program, and classes started on Wednesday, so we’d definitely witness another installment of Nevermore’s dark secrets and regular boarding school kid hijinks.
Who is cast for the second season of Wednesday?
Jenna Ortega is certainly going to have to return on Wednesday. Her parents, Luis Guzmán as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones, who played Gomez & Morticia Addams, are also scheduled to return.
Season 1 comprised Fred Armisen playing Uncle Fester, Isaac Ordonez, and George Burcea, as well as Christina Ricci & Gwendoline Christie voicing new roles from outside the family. Christie’s role as Nevermore’s principal dies tragically. Therefore she is unlikely to return. On the contrary hand, it is a haunted planet. Several notable personalities from the Addams family have yet to be cast, including Grandmama and Cousin Itt. And the authors may always add new actors, meaning that there will most likely be some exciting announcements and appearances coming up soon.
