Wednesday Season 2 Potential Release Date and Time Slots
We’re halfway into 2023, and it looks like the production for the second season hasn’t begun yet, which makes one thing clear:
The much-anticipated second season of “Wednesday” will not be available on Netflix this year, making the fandom wait a bit longer! The filming is expected to begin later this year. We speculate that the ongoing writer’s strike, which has delayed the production of many Netflix shows, may have been one of the reasons for postponing the development even further. This change of schedule may lead to the premiere being eventually set for next year or even later, as post-production also takes time to deliver the best version of the beloved characters.
Moreover, Netflix hasn’t provided a specific release date just yet.
But if we guess, we’ll have to wait until early to mid-2024 at the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET) on Netflix. It is speculated to take at least another 12–14 months of filming and post-production, which puts the release of the second season somewhere next year, making it the ideal time frame to return to this world of coming-of-age supernatural comedy and horror series.

Wednesday Season 2: Frequently Asked Questions
When was the season renewed?
In January 2023, the series was renewed for a second season, with Ortega now also serving as producer.
When did the preparation for the second season begin?
Much to the viewer’s delight, preparations for a second season commenced in December 2022, following Amazon’s acquisition of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It’s good to know that the development began as soon as the first season aired.
What will the second season be about?
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gough and Millar stated that the second season would expand upon the friendship between Wednesday and Enid while also evolving Wednesday’s relationship with her mother, Morticia. On the other hand, Ortega stated that the season would lean more into the horror aspect while ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday.
Who will return to the cast?
As of writing this, no new casting has been confirmed, but the main cast is expected to return, which includes: Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, Karina Varadi as a young Wednesday, Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valerie Kinbott, Jamie McShane as Donovan Galpin, Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin, Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe, Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair, Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay, Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus, Naomi J. Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka, and Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Ottinger.
Moreover, Christina Ricci, who played Marilyn Thornhill/Laurel Gates, is also expected to return, which she talked about in a recent interview on Collider.
What was the first season about?
While attending Nevermore Academy, Wednesday Addams attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a killing spree and solve the mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago. The iconic spawn of the Addams family is on her own for the first time — and things get predictably gothic.
After she’s expelled from her “normal” human high school over an incident involving piranhas (yes, you read that correctly), Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) is sent away to Nevermore Academy, a school for, shall we say, unique students. What she discovers there is a tantalizing, bloody murder mystery — and maybe, just maybe, a few friends as odd as she is.
