The post Will there be a Wednesday season 2? [UPDATE] first appeared on Ready Steady Cut.

We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix series on Wednesday and its renewed or canceled status.

The Addams Family Franchise has taken on many forms over the years, from TV adaptations to the much-loved live-action movies of the 90s, and it’s even morphed into an animated movie doubleheader in recent years. In 2022, the franchise is being updated for the TikTok generation, with a coming-of-age drama series from netflix. The series is created by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands), Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Burton, who hasn’t made a major appearance in the television industry in decades, directs the first half of the series, laying the groundwork for this teen-centric murder mystery. And it’s a welcome return for the Hollywood director, who creates an exciting new world for Wednesday, one that will both soothe Harry Potter fans and The Addams Family the faithful too.

Wednesday focuses on the misadventures of our titular Addams. The teenage daughter of parents Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and GomezLuis Guzman is played by Jenna Ortega (Scream and You). The series opens with Wednesday being expelled from her current school and finding herself shipped off to Nevermore Academy, her parents’ former playground and a purpose-built high school for supernatural outcasts. In Nevermore, Wednesday must live in her mother’s shadow and try to get by, though she is clearly an outcast among outcasts.

Wednesday finds itself intertwined with a series of murders at Nevermore and a disturbing cartoon that predicts an apocalyptic end for the academy. She takes it upon herself to investigate these gruesome crimes, hoping to solve the case before the killer strikes again. The first season is both charming and cheeky, with some great alternate performances from members of the Addams Family. But will Netflix be ready to renew this strange little coming-of-age tale for a second season?

Update of January 7, 2023:

It has been confirmed by Netflix that there will be a Season 2 on Wednesday, which is hardly a surprise considering the records it has broken.

Update of November 16, 2022:

At this very moment, Wednesday has not been renewed for season 2 by Netflix.

The series unfolds as a list of popular products in the entertainment industry. You’ve got an adaptation of a hit franchise, the supernatural teenage angle, a murder mystery to solve, and of course the other subgenres that are rampant in coming-of-age drama: romance and comedy. The creators seem to have compiled all the most popular genres into one show in hopes that it will become a smash hit. Netflix is ​​clearly hoping for big things from the series and as long as the numbers look promising, Wednesday is guaranteed a second season. I think this mix of teen drama and supernatural mystery will do wonders. They have another shot on their hands, it seems.

Does the series warrant a second season? Yes, I think there is still a lot of this world to explore. We haven’t seen many other Addams Family members yet either and with Wednesday in high school, there are many more directions the narrative can go. I imagine each season will tackle a separate semester at Nevermore. I wouldn’t be surprised if Netflix renewed this show very soon. As always, we’ll keep you posted on any updates regarding the pending renewal of Wednesday.
