Everything we know about Wednesday season 2

Wednesday spoilers follow.

Will there be a second season of Wednesday? Yes, there will!

In January 2023, Netflix gave us a sneak peek at “Wednesday” season two. The Wednesday Addams on X showed clips from the first season with the message, “More torture is coming. Lucky you.”

In the trailer for season two, we mostly see scenes from the first season. But Jenna Ortega, who plays Wednesday Addams, also talks about being imitated “millions of times all over the internet.” This is a nod to Wednesday’s dance, which blew up and went viral on TikTok and other social media.

So, expect even more “torture.” Ortega said the next season will have more horror when she talked to E! News at the Emmy ceremony in January 2023.

In March, on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Ortega mentioned they want to bring more horror into the show, move Wednesday away from romantic stories, and have her tackle more crime-fighting. And, there will be a new face in the Addams family.

Season one did great at the Creative Arts Emmys in January 2024, winning awards for costumes, theme music, makeup, and production design. Ortega, nominated for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series,” also appeared at the Emmy Awards in 2023.

Let’s see what’s coming in season two!

Wednesday season 2 release date on Netflix

Netflix officially dropped the news on January 6, 2023 – season 2 – will be. When’s it back?

No set premiere date for “Wednesday” season 2 on Netflix just yet. The shoot kicks off at the end of April 2024 in Ireland, so we’re probably looking at a 2025 debut.

Season one was filmed in Romania from September 2021 to March 2022. Thanks to the show’s hit status, that spot turned into a tourist hotspot, but logistical hiccups meant a location switch was on the cards.

I was kinda banking on season two dropping in 2024, especially since the first round was just 8 episodes. Figured they could whip up a similar batch in a year, riding the hype wave for a quick season two launch. But looks like we’re in for a longer wait.

The delay in getting season two rolling? Blame those lengthy Hollywood strikes through much of the latter half of 2023 that paused production.

But hey, with the actor and writer strikes resolved and the industry back in action, “Wednesday” is on its way back. Word on the street is that getting season two of “Wednesday” out there was top of the list for Netflix bosses post-strike.

Here’s what to expect in “Wednesday” season 2

Alright, the first season finale of “Wednesday” left us hanging big time with loads of cliffhangers and a major plot twist. So, season two’s got plenty to dive into – loads of mysteries to unravel. The masterminds behind the series, Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, spilled to TV Line that they’ve got the storyline mapped out for a solid four seasons.

Now, Netflix is keeping the lid tight on season two secrets of “Wednesday.” But they did drop a Netflix Tudum on their YouTube channel. The cast shared that the plot’s so under wraps, even they’re in the dark about what’s going down next.

Here’s the scoop we’ve got: season two is bringing a fresh face to the Addams family. Doohan quickly added that the stars are clueless about “who” will join. Ortega’s rooting for Cousin Itt, while Doohan and Sundey think Grandma could be a solid pick. Gough and Millar hinted that Wednesday’s relationship with her mom (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the first season) might snag more screen time in the upcoming season.

There’s buzz about Principal Larissa Weems (played by Gwendoline Christie) possibly still being alive and masquerading as Larch. There’s chatter about Thing snagging the villain Crackstone’s ring from season one and nabbing his powers. Plus, there’s talk that Wednesday might now be able to control Hyde’s powers.

As I mentioned before, expect more chills. Season two’s vibe is set to switch up. Jenna Ortega mentioned that the new “Wednesday” scripts are packed with more action and horror, and each episode feels more like its own movie.

Season two’s stepping away from romantic plots, especially after the love triangle drama with Tyler and Xavier in season one. Ortega has said that this plotline “doesn’t make sense” for her character.

Rumor has it that a character named Bruno might be joining – described as a “Spanish-speaking/Latin American teen with a smoldering look.” It’s not sure what his role will be yet, especially after Jenna’s comments on romantic storylines.

Cast Wednesday season 2

In “Wednesday” season 2, we’re likely gonna see these actors reprise their roles:

  • Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams
  • Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valeria Kinbott
  • Jamie McShane as Sheriff Donovan Galpin
  • Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin
  • Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe
  • Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair
  • Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Otinger
  • Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay
  • Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus
  • Naomi J. Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka
  • Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams
  • Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams
  • Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester
  • Victor Dorobantu as Thing
  • George Burcea as Lurch
  • Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams

I didn’t add Gwendoline Christie to this list, but I still hope she’s not dead. Remember, flashbacks can bring anyone back.

Though, heads up, Percy Hynes White will not be returning for this season due to ongoing investigations.

Rumor has it that Netflix is scouting for five new regulars for “Wednesday” season 2. Keep an eye out for:

  • Karloff is a young, fit dude who will be rocking some prosthetics.
  • Wolfgang is another teen known for his charm and swagger.
  • Annie is a 12- to 14-year-old girl, smart and wise beyond her years.
  • Bruno, a Spanish-speaking/Latin American teen, set out to stir up some romance.
  • Theater Music Teacher – the latest addition to the Nevermore crew.

Jenna will be producing season 2

Yep, you heard it right! The “Wednesday” season 2 scripts are all set, and Jenna Ortega is stoked about what she’s seen.

“I’ve gotten my hands on some scripts for the next season, and we’re definitely dialing up the horror,” Ortega shared with Laverne Cox. “It’s super exciting ’cause Wednesday stays her cool, unchanging self throughout, which is kinda her magic.”

She added, “We’ve got some killer one-liners coming, and everything’s just bigger. Expect more action. Each episode’s gonna feel more like its own film, which is pretty cool.”

Oh, and during those Hollywood protests, Jenna Ortega caught some flak. Some of Ortega’s fans hit back online, saying she was unfairly made a scapegoat for union issues that weren’t on her.

Is Lady Gaga joining the Wednesday?

Lady Gaga and “Wednesday” are just gossip. Lady Gaga joined the TikTok trend, doing the Ortega dance. Therefore, her name began to be associated with the Wednesday.

Jenna got asked on the red carpet about the possibility of Lady Gaga stepping into a role in “The Addams Family” spin-off, especially after the show got the green light for season two on Netflix. Her response? “I bet Netflix would love that.”

Jenna also shared a throwback story. “I worked with a hairdresser who used to work with her, and I had just seen Lady Gaga in concert in Boston a couple of years before. She made me this super sweet video saying, ‘Oh hey Jenna, I heard you’re a fan.’ It was cool,” she reminisced.

“I doubt she even remembers or knows who I was back then, but seeing her do the Wednesday dance now? Just shows how fast life changes. It’s pretty wild.”

How did Wednesday Season 1 end? 

Before watching season two, let’s take a look back at how it ended:

In the final episode, Tyler, Wednesday’s love interest for most of the season, turns out to be the Hyde monster she’s been hunting, freed by his master’s command.

Wednesday tries to get a confession from him but fails, leading to her expulsion from Nevermore, thanks to Principal Weems finally having enough of her antics. Before heading to the train station, Wednesday visits Eugene, who’s just woken up and remembers seeing someone with red shoes in the monster’s cave right before Hyde attacked him.

Wednesday figures out that Hyde’s master isn’t Dr. Kinbott, the psychologist Hyde killed in episode 7, but Miss Thornhill, the Botany teacher at Nevermore.

Thornhill’s just an alias to hide her real identity: Laurel Gates, a descendant of Joseph Crackstone and sister to Garrett Gates. After Morticia offed Garrett, the Gates family crumbled, so Laurel blames Nevermore and the Outcasts for her troubles and aims to bring back Crackstone to take down the school. She doesn’t know about Crackstone’s supernatural beef with Wednesday’s ancestor, Goody Addams.

Wednesday tricks Laurel into confessing, she is using Weems‘ shape-shifting trick. However, Laurel eliminates Weems and captures Wednesday, intending to resurrect Crackstone with Wednesday’s blood and remains from Tyler’s victims. Goody saves Wednesday, sacrificing their special bond, just as Crackstone and Laurel leave her.


Crackstone’s attack erupts chaos at Nevermore. Enid, now in werewolf form, battles Tyler’s Hyde in the forest. Thing springs Xavier from jail. The Outcasts escape as Wednesday takes on Crackstone, defeating him with Bianca’s surprise assist. Eugene and Enid step in to defeat Laurel and Tyler.

After the dust settles, Tyler’s locked up, but a final scene hints he might break free as Hyde and come after Wednesday. The students head home with Weems gone, and Nevermore shuttered for the semester. Xavier gifts Wednesday a phone, and she gets a cryptic text from a stalker claiming to be watching her. Thornhill’s fate is left hanging, still alive and likely more spiteful towards Wednesday than ever.

So, what’s next for “Wednesday”?

Season two promises to reveal Wednesday’s stalker, Tyler’s next moves, and who’ll take the reins at Nevermore.

And btw, Morticia might be taking over as the new head of Nevermore. The academy’s on the lookout for a fresh leader, and who better than Nevermore alum Morticia Frump to step up? The Addams family had a hand in founding Nevermore, and teen Morticia turned it into her kingdom, so she’s likely to jump at the chance to run the school. Given the buzz about Morticia and Wednesday getting closer in season two, this could totally happen. But wait and see.

Will there be a Wednesday spin-off?

Netflix is thinking about making a spin-off from the popular show “Wednesday.”

According to Bloomberg, Netflix wants to make more shows related to “Wednesday” and the Addams Family to keep the show’s success going.

They’re planning the first spin-off around Uncle Fester, played by Fred Armisen. This idea is being discussed as they prepare for the second season of “Wednesday.”


The Uncle Fester show is just an idea right now, and they haven’t figured out all the details about who will be in it and what the story will be. So, it’s possible this spin-off might not happen. But with “Wednesday” being so popular, Netflix probably won’t give up on the idea easily.
