Will this supernatural comedy-horror series expand further? Here is everything we know so far about Wednesday Season 3.
Over the last few years, major streaming platforms have started to greenlight many original series that have performed exceptionally well for multiple season orders at one time, which usually contains already renewed two to three seasons in their bags without worrying about the demand or future of the show for a few years.
One of them in recent times has been the one and only Netflix’s most popular original series, “Wednesday.”
The first season premiered back in November 2022, and right now it holds the record for most hours viewed in a week for an English-language Netflix series with a total of 341.2 million hours watched in its first week of release, amounting to more than 50 million households and passing prior record holder Stranger Things 4‘s 335.01 million hours.
After such an amazing reception from across the globe, the fandom is curious to know if the third season will also be renewed earlier than everyone has been expecting. If you recall, a few months after the worldwide premiere of the first season, Netflix was quick to greenlight the second season in January 2023. So, the fans’ prediction about the early third season’s renewal doesn’t seem too far-fetched.
On the other hand, it’s not surprising that the network hasn’t announced the third season because, as you may have observed, renewals sometimes happen a month or two after the premiere of the ongoing season, if not sooner. This means that there is still plenty of time for such a statement as the filming of the second season hasn’t even begun yet, which clears up any doubts about the delay.
It will surely be approved once the second season release date draws close to its debut on Netflix, which is expected to premiere early to mid-2024, and the network is able to assess its future potential in terms of storyline, viewership, investment, production costs, and other elements that are crucial to understanding the renewal. We can anticipate it having a similar time frame if the production moves along efficiently.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next! There are chances that Netflix might renew it next year once the second season is available on Netflix if they don’t want to cause unnecessary delays and time gaps that can lead to viewers losing interest, which no one wants to happen this early on. In the meantime, viewers may turn on notifications to get updates on when the new season makes its debut on the platform.
On the other hand, since we haven’t yet gotten any confirmed information, it’s far too early to speculate about the Wednesday, Season 3 plotlines, especially since the second one hasn’t even started production.
If the creators take their time to renew it, they should lay out the theme and explore the dynamics for the show’s possible future if it is approved on schedule. Right now, we won’t know for sure until later which path the creators intend for this franchise to follow. So, anytime from this point on, Of course, this is just speculation, and we’ll have to wait for some time for any prominent network like Netflix to confirm these details in the near future!
So, we suggest the fans look for the second season which will be more exciting than the first season. In a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jenna Ortega talked about what to expect from Season 2 of Wednesday. In the conversation, the actress said that the second season of Wednesday is currently in the writing process.
She also mentioned that the writers and the complete team are currently working on the plot and other details. Talking about the same, Jenna Ortega stated, “We wish to increase the horror element a little and then take Wednesday out of the romantic situation to let her be her own self.”
Take a look at the interview on the official The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon YouTube channel below:
Moreover, it’s not the first time the “Wednesday,” actress has discussed her aspirations for the upcoming season, for which she will serve as executive producer. “I think, me personally, I would love to see the series get a little bit darker,” she told E! News on the 2023 Golden Globes red carpet on January 10, 2023.
Further adding, “Embrace the horror aspect a little bit more.”
In Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast, Jenna also stated, “I don’t think I’ve ever had to put my foot down on a set in the way that I had to on ‘Wednesday’ because it’s so easy to fall into that category, especially with this type of show,” she said. Further adding, “Everything that she does, everything that I had to play, did not make sense for her character at all. Her being in a love triangle made no sense.”
The next season will definitely continue from the revelations of the Season 1 finale which showed that Hyde is still out there. Additionally, a creeper is reportedly prowling Nevermore: Wednesday gets threatening texts and unsettling images from an eerie number in the Season 1 finale. “[The stalker proves] that threats remain out there… to both Wednesday and the school,” Millar says. “Not all not loose ends have been tied up neatly as she thinks they have.”
Even though we are aware that Wednesday might not always smile, But even she might smile a little at the prospect of a brand-new scary case to solve, which is in line with the character of Wednesday Addams. So far, the direction the new season is taking is already exciting, and we don’t expect anything less!
Hence, while you wait for another season to explore the world of Nevermore! We recommend that the fans should stream the first season on Netflix with a range of membership options. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month. Take a look at the official second season announcement which highlights, “Smart, sarcastic and a little dead inside, Wednesday Addams investigates a murder spree while making new friends – and foes – at Nevermore Academy.”
