Wednesday was released this week on Netflix. The new Netflix series is directed by Tim Burton. The series is Burton’s Television directorial debut. Wednesday is topping the charts and the series has already become number 1 on Netflix in several countries. However, fans are excited to know if Netflix will renew the new series. Wednesday has received positive reviews from critics and the audience. The series has an 8.5 audience rating on IMDb and a 71 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Wednesday Season 2 Release Date
Netflix has not announced the renewal status of the series. It is early to say anything about season 2 of the series yet. However, the series is performing quite well on the streaming platform and is expected to perform well enough to be renewed for season 2.
The show’s director, Tim Burton, only directed half of the first season. During production, he was not involved in writing the episodes. However, he did serve as executive producer. If Netflix renews the show, it is likely Burton will return to direct more episodes.
Despite the positive reviews Wednesday has received on Netflix, it is unclear whether the series will continue. Although fans are clamoring for Netflix to renew the show, the network has not confirmed a renewal. Netflix usually waits to see how a new show performs before officially announcing the renewal. If Wednesday Season 2 is renewed, it would likely air in early 2024. The second season would require about eight months of post-production.
Will Morticia return for season 2?
Season one ended with Nevermore being closed after Larissa Weems got killed. Nevermore needs a new principal and Morticia Addams is perfect for Nevermore’s headmistress, as she was a former student and a member of Nightshades. Also, it will be interesting to see Wednesday’s reaction if Morticia decides to take responsibility for the headmistress and if she will do anything to get rid of her mother.
We might see more of Tyler. It was revealed that Miss Thornhill was behind all the murders and she was the master of the Hyde killer (Tyler Galpin) she also tried to resurrect Jeremiah Crackstone to get rid of all the outcasts. However, Tyler might return in season 2 as he escaped in the last scene and he can come back to take revenge from Wednesday.
The next season will get darker. Jenna Ortega also revealed in an interview that she wants “Wednesday’s character to get darker”.
“I kind of want her to be darker.”
“I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of competitiveness. Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?’”
“I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero“.
Jenna Ortega will be back for her role. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, and Isaac Ordonez will be back as Addams’s family. Also, fans are curious to know if Christina Ricci will be back to play Ms.Thornhill(Laurel Gates). Ricci played Wednesday in the 1990s Addam’s family film adaptation. Fans want to see more of Ricci in the next season. Other cast members include Hunter Doohan, Moosa Mostafa, Jamie McShane, Riki Lindhome, and George Burcea.
