Here’s what we know so far…
Wednesday Will Be Back for Season 2
Yes, you heard it right! Wednesday is set to return for a second season. The series’ Twitter account confirmed this exciting news on January 6, 2023.
Co-creator Alfred Gough hinted at the possibility of future series, saying, “Miles [Millar] and I are talking amongst ourselves about it. There’s definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses.”
In a delightful twist, Jenna Ortega will also take on the role of an executive producer for the second season, as revealed in an interview with Elle in March 2023.
What Can We Expect in Wednesday Season 2?
Jenna spilled some details about the upcoming season’s plot in an interview with Variety in June. She revealed that the show will “ditch romantic interests” in favor of embracing the horror aspect of the story. After Wednesday’s love triangle with Tyler and Xavier, it seems the focus will shift towards darker and spookier themes.
Jenna said, “We’ve decided we want to lean into the horror aspect of the show a little bit more. Because it is so lighthearted, and a show like this with vampires and werewolves and superpowers, you don’t want to take yourself too seriously.
“We’re ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great,” she added, leaving fans eagerly anticipating what season two has in store.
When Will Wednesday Series 2 Be Released?
While a specific release date for Wednesday series two hasn’t been announced yet, it’s likely to return in 2024, considering that filming hasn’t begun for the new season.
As a reference, filming for season one took place between September 2021 and March 2022 in Romania, and the series wasn’t released until November 2022.
Who Will Return in Season 2 of Wednesday?

During the premiere of her other TV show, Yellowjackets, Christina hinted that she might return, saying, “I don’t think I’m allowed to say… On my end, the door is open. She was so fun to play; it’s always so fun to play a villain.”
