Wednesday Season 2: Expected release date, cast, plot and everything we know


You’ve come to the proper spot if the Wednesday series has personally hurt you, specifically because you need season 2 from Netflix like, yesterday. With 341.23 million hours seen in its first week, the program managed to exceed Stranger Things and overtake it as the most watched English-language series on the streaming service. It would be a significant understatement to suggest that the Addams Family spin-off has skyrocketed to top-tier levels of popularity, and Netflix is well aware of this.

When is the next season of Wednesday going to premiere? Are you wondering about the same? Then you are at the right place. Here’s everything we know about it.

Wednesday Season 2: Cast

As of now, we do not have the exact information regarding the official cast list of the upcoming season. Moreover, we think it is safe to speculate that most of the main characters and series regulars of the show are likely to return for another season. Considering the same, check out the potential cast of the next season below:

  • Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams
  • Karina Varadi portrays a young Wednesday
  • Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems
  • Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valerie Kinbott
  • Jamie McShane as Donovan Galpin
  • Ben Wilson portrays a young Donovan Galpin
  • Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin
  • Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe
  • Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair
  • Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay
  • Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus
  • Naomi J. Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka
  • Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Ottinger
  • Christina Ricci as Marilyn Thornhill / Laurel Gates

Wednesday Season 2: Plot

Currently, the plotline of the upcoming season of Wednesday is still kept under the wraps. However, we know that the plot begins after throwing live piranhas into the school pool to avenge her brother Pugsley’s mistreatment by the boys’ water polo team, Wednesday Addams is expelled from her school. As a result, her parents Gomez and Morticia Addams enroll her in Nevermore Academy, a private school in the Vermont town of Jericho for hideous outcasts, where they both attended high school. Wednesday struggles to connect with her classmates because of her icy, emotionless demeanor and defiant attitude, which leads her to clash with Larissa Weems, the school’s principal. She does learn, though, that she inherited her mother’s psychic prowess, which she uses to solve a local murder investigation.

Moreover, we think that the upcoming season of the series will pick up from where it was left off.

Wednesday Season 2: Release Date

It’s hard to estimate. However, if we look at the season 1 timetable, which showed that filming started in September 2021 and ended around March 2022 (adding in the roughly eight months it took for the program to air), we can see that the entire production cycle took place over the course of about a year and a month.

We might be looking at an early to mid-2024 release date if Netflix decides to renew Wednesday for a second season and follows the same production schedule!
