The Addams Family is finally back on Wednesday a new version of the gothic family on Netflix that was co-created by Tim Burton. Jenny Ortega, who was in Scream and is in the second season of You, plays the famous role of Wednesday Addams. In the show, Wednesday is a dark anti-heroine who starts at a new school.
But when a mysterious force starts killing people in the town, Wednesday has to try to control her growing psychic ability, help her parents, and make new friends all at the same time. The original Addams Family star Christina Ricci plays Marilyn Thornhill, which new Wednesday actress Jenny Ortega said was “so awkward.”
“I think she’s a great actress for playing roles. I think of her as Wednesday, so seeing her in person was scary. But she’s so great and talented that she made it easy, “Ortega told Variety. “It wasn’t right. I was thinking of giving it to her.”
This typical Tim Burton comedy also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Riki Lindhome, and Gwendoline Christie, so fans may be wondering if it will be back for a second season. Here’s what we know so far about the second season of Wednesday.
Wednesday Season 2: Release Date Details
Even though Netflix hasn’t said whether or not season 2 will happen yet we can make a good guess about when we can expect Wednesday to come back if it does.
Filming for the Tim Burton project began in September of last year and ended in March of 2022. This means that a possible second season of Wednesday wouldn’t come out until at least the beginning of 2024.
Wednesday Season 2: Expected Cast Details
- Jenny Ortega as Wednesday Addams
- Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams
- Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams
- Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams
- Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester
- Gwendoline Christie as Principal Larissa Weems
- Jamie McShane as Sheriff Galpin
- Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe
- Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin
- Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair

Wednesday wouldn’t be Wednesday without Jenna Ortega playing goth teen Wednesday Addams again. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, and Fred Armisen are also likely to return as Morticia, Gomez, Pugsley, and Uncle Fester, respectively.
While it remains to be seen what will become of the characters introduced in the show – especially as a monstrous killing spree terrorizes the local town near Nevermore Academy in season 1 – hopefully, we’ll see the likes of Gwendoline Christie (Principal Larissa Weems), Jamie McShane (Sheriff Galpin), Percy Hynes White (Xavier Thorpe), Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers
Plot Details Of Wednesday Season 2
Since Wednesday’s overall plot is kept secret, it’s hard to say what a second season might be about, especially since there are so many supernatural elements at play. However, with the Nevermore Academy, a bunch of new characters, and a killer on the loose, there’s a lot to figure out.
From Wednesday’s crazy new school to Tim Burton’s take on the Addams Family, season 2 could go deeper into the Addams world. However, Ortega has said that the show ties up enough loose ends to end after one season.
She told NME, “It could go on, but it could also end.” “I think that’s one of the nice things about the show: we can choose.”
We do know, though, that season 1 will end with an “Ortega also said, “I remember that there were a lot of night shoots. And there was a lot of fire, as I recall…”
