Based on the comics of the same name, created by the American Cartoonist Charles Addams, “The Addams Family” works as a nostalgia factor for all the 90s kids. The series of comics was first adapted into a TV series named “The Addams Family” in 1964. But it was the 1991 movie that made it a staple of pop-culture. Over the past few decades the franchise has developed a loyal fan base. The quirky humor, dark personalities and gothic style are very much appreciated by the audience. A lot of spin offs and sequels were made but the Netflix series “Wednesday” is definitely the most popular one.
The series created a lot of hype even before its release. On November 16th,2022 the first season of “Wednesday” was released and it literally broke the internet. Fans absolutely loved the show. Thousand of memes, reels, cosplays were made. The show’s lead Jenna Ortega instantly became an internet sensation. And why not? Ortega’s performance was so on the point and she did complete justice to her role.
“Wednesday” became the 2nd most watched American show on Netflix after Stranger Things. So, quite obviously, it had to be renewed. The show’s co-creator Miles Millar said in an interview with Netflix’s TUDUM: “It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world. Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.”
On January 6th, 2023, a few weeks after the release of the show, the official announcement for season 2 was made.

Has the filming for Wednesday season 2 started yet?
The show was officially renewed on January 6th, 2023. As of 1st May, 2023 the production has not started yet. Though, in an interview with Glamour, Jenna Ortega addressed that the writers have already started writing the scripts. Although, an official date for the starting of the production has not been given out yet. But we can expect that it would begin shortly. Heartbreaking for the fans, they would have to wait for a very long time for the season 2.
Do we have a release date for Wednesday season 2?
To answer that question, no we do not have a release date yet. Since the production of season 2 is yet to begin, we would have to wait for a long time for the release. The production of a show usually takes 5-6 months and after that editing and post-production works take place. That means Wednesday Season 2 will not be coming before 2024. This is really frustrating to the fans!
Should we expect to see more of Gomez and Morticia in Wednesday Season 2?
As per the reports, the season 2 will give more screen time to Gomez and Morticia Addams. Though the plot has not been revealed yet, but we can expect to see that unique dance of Wednesday and this time with his father. Luis Guzman who plays the role of Gomez (Wednesday’s father) has stated that in a light note during an interview. Wednesday’s famous dance that broke the internet was may be inherited by her father, we never know!
So since it is revealed that Gomez and Morticia will be returning in season 2, Wednesday might discover a few more mysterious facts about both of her parents.
What else to expect from Wednesday Season 2?
At the ending of season 1, we saw that Xavier gives a phone to Wedneday as a gift. We get to see that Wednesday gets a text from an anonymous person while she was on her way to her home for the mis-semester break. A lot of fan theories are being circulated in the internet.
According to some, the text is from Madam Thornhill. Since it’s a supernatural show anything can happen at any moment. Even the dead can rise back. Since the deaths of Principal Weems and Madam Thornhill both were vague, we can expect them to appear back. At the end of the season 1, it was revealed that Tyler was the Hybe that was responsible for the students’ death and he was being taken to a confinement. In the Van he gets an attack and started transitioning. With that the credits rolled up. We can expect that the season 2 will pick up from the end of season 1.
