As soon as fans finished watching Wednesday on Netflix, they had one question for the streaming service: when is Wednesday season 2? Netflix took some time before granting the fledgling series a second season, but now that we've got confirmation that more Wednesday is on the way, it's time to get excited. 

"It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world.  Thrilled to continue Wednesday's tortuous journey into season two. We can't wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn't emptied the pool first," Wednesday creators, showrunners and executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar said in a statement to Tudum.

Wednesday season 1 broke Netflix's record for the number of hours viewed in a single week — twice, no less. Now that we know that the story will continue, it's never too early to start thinking ahead to next season.

Here's everything we know about Wednesday season 2.  

Wednesday season 2 release date

There's no release date available for Wednesday season 2 at this point. 

The first season debuted on November 23, 2022, after filming in Romania from late 2021 to early 2022

Per Variety, Jenna Ortega has a very busy schedule. She's finishing up the final days of filming for Beetlejuice 2 now that the SAG strike has ended, and once that's done she will be available to start filming Wednesday season 2. No production dates for Wednesday season 2 have been made available yet. 

In the meantime, as we wait for news of a Wednesday season 2 release date, check out Jenna Ortega's Met Gala look. If it doesn't scream Wednesday Addams, we don't know what does!

Wednesday season 2 cast

Jenna Ortega reprises her role as Wednesday Addams in the second season. After going viral for Wednesday's epic dance moves, Ortega (Scream) is in high demand. In fact, she presented at the 2023 Golden Globes and had a thrilling night hosting SNL. She's also serving as a producer for Wednesday season 2. 

With so many story options available in season 2 it's a safe bet that anyone in the season 1 cast could make a return, even Gwendoline Christie (The Sandman), whose character may — or may not — have perished in season 1. 

Steve Buscemi has joined the season 2 cast, per Variety, but details about his character have remained scarce. 

Here are some of the actors we might see in season 2:

  • Catherine Zeta-Jones (National Treasure: Edge of History) as Morticia Addams 
  • Luis Guzmán (Narcos) as Gomez Addams 
  • Isaac Ordonez (A Wrinkle in Time) as Pugsley 
  • Fred Armisen (Super Mario Bros. Movie) as Uncle Fester 
  • Emma Myers (Girl in the Basement) as Enid 
  • Percy Hynes White (The Gifted) as Xavier 
  • Hunter Doohan (Your Honor) as Tyler 
  • Joy Sunday (Dog) as Bianca 
  • Georgie Farmer (The Evermoor Chronicles) as Ajax 
  • George Burcea (Dampyr) as Lurch 

Wednesday season 2 plot

It's still pretty early for season 2 plot details, but there are a few loose ends from the end of Wednesday season 1 that might rear their ugly heads in season 2. 

The Hyde might (or might not) be in custody, so it remains to be seen whether the monster will still be able to wreak havoc on Nevermore's students in the new season. 

There's also the matter of that mysterious text that Wednesday received in the season finale. "[The stalker proves] that threats remain out there… to both Wednesday and the school," Millar told Tudum. "Not all not loose ends have been tied up neatly as she thinks they have."

But don't expect the love triangle to be a story in the second season. In a June 2023 interview with Variety, Ortega shot down the possibility of continuing with that story. "We’re ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great," she said. 

Wednesday season 2 trailer

Since production on the second season hasn't even started yet, there won't be a trailer for Wednesday season 2 for a while.
