After becoming one of Netflix’s most successful shows of all time, we’ve now got confirmation that Wednesday will, in fact, be returning for a second season. Here’s everything we know so far about season 2 of Wednesday including the latest reports on when the show will get back into production, what we can expect from the story, and who’s returning.
Wednesday was one of the most anticipated Netflix shows of 2022. Aided by the fact that Tim Burton, who made his television directorial debut on Wednesday, was attached to the project as both a producer and a director. Not to mention once Netflix revealed the first look of Jenna Ortega in costume as the iconic Wednesday Addams, it only made fans that much more excited.
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed on January 6th, 2023
Wednesday exceeded all expectations and is proving to be one of the most successful Originals on Netflix in its history, not just one of the biggest of 2022.
On January 6th, Netflix confirmed the show would return for a second season.
By that point, however, it had been a dirty secret that the show had been renewed, with a writer’s room reportedly opened and numerous teases over the Christmas period.
“It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world,” said Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the two showrunners of the series, adding that they’re “Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive headfirst into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.”
Very well, to put it bluntly, it ranks in the top 10 TV (English) list of all time just below Stranger Things Season 4 (which is notably longer in length, giving it a distinct advantage) with 1.237 billion hours watched in the first 28 days on the service.
It’s ranked 20 weeks in the global Netflix top 10s clocking in 1.806 billion hours of watch time in those 20 weeks. It also ranked for 14 weeks in the Nielsen top 10s (which tracks US-connected device viewing), picking up 412.08 million hours watched.
Per Netflix, here are some of the other records the show managed to break:
“The series broke the record for the most hours viewed in a week for an English-language TV series on Netflix – not once, but twice – when it debuted in the #1 spot with a record breaking 341.23M hours viewed, and again in its second week with a staggering 411.29M hours viewed.
To date, Wednesday has had six consecutive weeks with over 100+M hours viewed on the English TV List — another record!
On TikTok, #WednesdayAddams has amassed over 22 Billion views
The Wednesday soundtrack reached #1 on the iTunes Soundtrack chart where it remained in the Top 10 for three weeks. Wednesday Addams, the artist, now has over 1 Million followers on Spotify.
On Spotify, “Goo Goo Muck” by The Cramps saw a streaming increase of more than 9.5K% compared to the month prior to the series release.
Wednesday’s iconic dance scene has gone massively viral across global social media. Fan generated content utilizing “Bloody Mary” by Lady Gaga led to a streaming increase of more than 1,800% of the song on Spotify compared to the month prior the series release. Even Lady Gaga joined in on the fun.
With over 80 Million views and counting, fans can’t get enough of the cast’s reaction to the iconic dance scene video.”
First and foremost, let’s look at what showrunners have teased for the future of the show. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, they’ve said:
“For us, the show also is really about this female friendship, with Wednesday and Enid really being at the center of that. The fact that they really connected with audiences, it has been really gratifying. So, we’re excited to explore now that Wednesday’s dipped her toe into the friendship pool, what’s that gonna look like?”
Immediately after switching on the phone, Xavier had bought her, Wednesday was sent some ominous messages as she gleefully realized she had acquired her first stalker.
We already know that Wednesday had a limited online presence, thanks to her negative stance towards social media. But considering Xavier is the one to give her a brand new phone, it’s impressive a stalker was already able to send her messages. But thanks to her antics it’s no surprise Wednesday has picked up lots of attention.
We last saw Tyler, in chains, being transported to what would have been a maximum security prison, or psychiatric ward. However, before the transport could make its journey, Tyler transformed into his Hyde form, leading the audience to assume he had killed all of the armed guards.
With Tyler on the loose, and without his master, will he be more dangerous? Or, will he try to redeem himself so he can return to Jehrico?
With the death of Larissa Weems, Nevermore Academy has been left without a principal. There’s also an extremely limited pool of candidates that could take the job.
The showrunners have teased that closing the school has given them a broad canvas for season 2 with them, telling THR, “The school was closed when they left, which gave us the most possibilities for season two, and I think that’s something that we’re excited to explore.”
The most obvious choice would be for Morticia Addams, Wednesday’s mother, to be offered the job. As a former student of Nevermore and a member of the Nightshades, Morticia would be the most competent person to take over. However, Wednesday would do everything within her power to remove her mother as principal with hilarious and likely disastrous results.
