Netflix renews Wednesday for Season 2

Netflix has renewed Wednesday for a second season.
Tim Burton’s live-action series inspired by the Addams Family stars Jenna Ortega in the title role, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci. The sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charts Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy – where she’s either the odd one out or the only one who really fits in with everything weird that’s going on.
Wednesday is now one of the most successful series ever on Netflix. It ranks #2 on the Most Popular (English) TV list with 1.237 Billion hours viewed within the first 28 days of its debut in November last year. Wednesday crossed the 1 billion hour view mark only three weeks after debut – joining Stranger Things 4 and Squid Game as the third title to reach this milestone within its first 28 days.
Now, Netflix has confirmed that a second chapter is on the way.
Creators/Showrunners/Executive Producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar said: “It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world. Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.”
“Tim Burton’s Netflix debut is gothic fun for all the family,” we wrote in our review.
