‘Wednesday’ Season 2: Netflix Renewal Status & What We Know So Far
To everyone’s surprise, Wednesday it did not arrive the week before Halloween. However, it has been more than worth the wait. After a dark and incredibly funny season of Wednesday, we know fans will be eager to see where the series goes next. It’s still early, but in its first week, the series has surpassed 341,000,000 million hours, which means fans need not worry, we are 100% sure that Wednesday will be renewed soon.
Wednesday it was one of the most anticipated Netflix shows of 2022. Helped by the fact that Tim Burton, who made his television directorial debut on Wednesday, joined the project as a producer and director. Not to mention, once Netflix revealed the first look at Jenna Ortega dressed up as the iconic Wednesday Addams, it only made fans that much more excited.
Wednesday Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last update: 11/30/2022)
Our renewal prediction: probable renewal
At the time of this update, a week has passed since Wednesday debuted on Netflix.
While we expected Wednesday to get off to a good start on Netflix, it even exceeded our expectations in the first week. Within the first five days, Wednesday has accumulated a total of 341.230 billion hours of viewing. Compared to some of the biggest shows on Netflix, you can see in the chart below that Wednesday has the potential to reach the same level of popularity as Stranger Things season 4 and Dahmer.
Wednesday has not only caught the attention of millions of subscribers, but the series, and in particular Jenna Ortega’s performance as Wednesday Addams, has been highly praised on social media. These days, it’s hard to scroll down a Twitter feed or TikTok FYP without seeing someone emulating the Rave’N Wednesday Dance or simply praising Jenna Ortega for her performance.
We always hoped that on Wednesday it would receive a makeover. And, thanks to its strong start at Netflix, our expectations that the renewal is on the way have only been further solidified.
If Wednesday is not renewed, social networks can completely and completely collapse.
what to expect from Wednesday season 2?
Who is the Wednesday stalker?
Immediately after turning on the phone Xavier had purchased her, Wednesday received 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 his negative stance towards social media. But considering that Xavier is the one who gave her a new phone, it’s impressive that a stalker was able to message her already. But thanks to his shenanigans, it’s no wonder Wednesday garnered a lot of attention.
What will Tyler do next?
We last saw Tyler, chained up, 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 that he had killed all of the armed guards.
With Tyler on the loose and his master gone, will he be any more dangerous? Or will he try to redeem himself so he can return to Jehrico?
Who will be the next director of Nevermore?
With the death of Larissa Weems, Nevermore Academy has been left without a principal. There is also an extremely limited pool of candidates who could take the job. The most obvious choice would be for Morticia Addams, Wednesday’s mother, to be offered the job. As a Nevermore alumnus and a member of the Nightshades, Morticia would be the most competent person to take over. However, Wednesday would do everything in her power to remove her mother as principal with hilarious and likely disastrous results.
If Morticia is given the Nevermore directorial job, this would require Catherine Zeta-Jones to be promoted to a series regular.
What will happen to Laurel?
With his true identity revealed, Laurel was able to resurrect Jeremiah Crackstone, but thanks to Wednesday, he was defeated. It was also revealed that she was Tyler’s teacher, as she manipulated the teen into transforming into a hyde.
Laurel’s plans have been thwarted for now, but if Tyler comes to his master’s rescue, the duo could have more dire plans for Nevermore and the outcasts.
Will Pugsley join Nevermore?
It is unclear what the age difference between Pugsley and Wednesday is, however we do know that they both attended the same high school together prior to Wednesday’s transfer to Nevermore. If Morticia is offered the top job at Nevermore, her entire family could move in with her. Wednesday’s reaction would be priceless, since naturally he would do everything in her power to stop him from trying to date her.
Who are the cast members of Wednesday season 2?
We could expect the following cast members to reprise their roles in the second season of Wednesday:
- Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams
- Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valeria Kinbott
- Jamie McShane as Sheriff Donovan Galpin
- Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin
- Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe
- Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair
- Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Otinger
- Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay
- Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus
- Naomi J. Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka
- Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams
- Luis Guzman as Gomez Addams
- Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester
- Victor Dorobantu as Thing
- George Burcea as Lurch
- Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams
While it appears that Gwendoline Christie’s character Larissa Weems died of Nightshade poisoning, there’s always the chance that the character could somehow return via flashbacks.
Marylin Thornhill’s Christina Ricci character, aka Laurel, was defeated, but we don’t know for sure what her ultimate fate was. Which means that the actress could repeat her role again.
Will Tim Burton direct again?
Much of the publicity for the first season has emphasized the fact that some of the episodes were directed by Tim Burton.
The only upcoming project Burton is scheduled to work on is the announced Beetlejuice sequel. But, taking into account that he did not participate in the drafting of any Wednesday episodes, and he only directed half of the first season, there’s no reason he can’t return to direct more episodes.
It would be a shame if Burton doesn’t direct again, however, it’s not imperative and the show would still go on.
