Wednesday Season 2 Release Date (Expected): Cast, Story, and all that we know so far

Prepend to the content

Wednesday is a comedy horror, supernatural and coming-of-age drama that made its way to Netflix on November 23, 2022. The show got a stupendous response and had predominantly positive feedback from the critics. It became the second most-watched English-language Netflix series within three weeks of its release. Not just this, it also was a big favourite on the award circuit, picking up two Golden Globe nominations in the categories Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy for Jenna Ortega.

Therefore, it came as no surprise when Netflix announced in January 2023 that the show had been renewed for the second season. There are now some more details known about the show’s second season, including a potential release date.

Wednesday Season 2 details: When will it be available on Netflix

On January 6, 2023, Netflix dropped a YouTube short video featuring Wednesday actor Jenna Ortega. She is focused on typing on the typewriter, she types the words ‘The End’ followed by a question mark, and the camera pans to her face. Seeing this, most fans, including us, were excited at the possibility of season 2. Now that things are officially confirmed, we can look forward to another entertaining season.

It has been a while since we had been privy to this information, but not much followed through. It was expected that, like other shows, even Wednesday would be pushed to a later release date following the writer’s strike that impacted work for almost five months. It has been revealed that the show’s production will start in April 2024. This should enable the show to be available for viewing in the spring or summer of 2025.

As per earlier reports, the show was to be available sooner. There were also rumours that the popular show may switch platforms from Netflix to Amazon Prime Video. Post a lot of conjecture and debate, it is now clear that Netflix will continue to be the platform where we will get to see Netflix

Wednesday Season 2 – Potential storyline and filming details

Wednesday was shot in Romania. But the reports are now pegging that the show’s second season will be filmed in Ireland. In season 1, the school was closed, which opens the possibility of a season 2 of the series. It can explore Wednesday’s friendships, and Wednesday and Morticia’s dynamic can be explored. There are a lot of stories that can be explored in the upcoming seasons, and a lot of fan theories are already floating on social networking sites and Reddit.

It will be a delight for the Wednesday fans when Jenna Ortega returns, essaying the titular character of Wednesday Addams, in Wednesday season 2. In a recent interview, Jenna Ortega mentioned that she wants season 2 to be darker than the first. As ardent fans of the series, we would also like that. While we wait for the second season to commence, we would like to point out that in a recent interaction, makers of the show Miles Millar and Al Gough hope that Wednesday will stretch out for ‘four seasons’. Now that we have the confirmation for season 2, let’s see if we get details for the forthcoming ones as well.

Wednesday Season 1 – Premise

Wednesday, Addams is expelled from her school when she dumps living piranhas in the school’s swimming pool as the water polo team boys bully her brother. Gomez and Morticia, her parents, enrol her at their school, Nevermore Academy. It is a private school for monstrous outcasts’, in Jericho, Vermont. She finds it hard to connect with her fellow schoolmates. A little dead on the inside, the smart, sarcastic Wednesday investigates murders while making new friends and foes at the Nevermore Academy. As twists unfold, she discovers she has inherited her mother’s psychic abilities. Abilities allow her to solve the murders.

Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video – Why the Wednesday season 2 OTT platform shift rumours

While we are at the topic, we will also explain why this debate erupted in the first place. In 2022, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM Studios) signed an $8.5 billion deal with Amazon. Since Amazon has taken MGM Studios (which is one of the producers for the series Wednesday) under its wings, people started to wonder if the next instalment of Wednesday would be on Amazon Prime Video. As soon as the news started to go viral a counterargument also started to do the rounds. As per this argument, since Wednesday was locked in for Netflix before Amazon acquired MGM Television, the series is likely to stay on the same platform. Now things are crystal clear that the next season is in the works and will indeed make its way to Netflix.
