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 (opens in new tab).

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, 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 (opens in new tab)from late 2021 to early 2022 (opens in new tab). Production on the second season will likely begin soon, so it's possible that the next season will be ready later this year but given the show's special effects it's possible that it won't be ready until early 2024. 

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

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. 

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."

Wednesday season 2 trailer
