What Will Wednesday Season 2 Be About?
The first season of Wednesday immersed viewers in the world of Wednesday Addams while she was a student at Nevermore Academy. She discovers her psychic abilities, attempts to solve a terrifying mystery involving her parents, and balances relationships with sirens, werewolves, and vampires at her new school.
At the end of the season, she learns that Tyler, her coffee shop crush and the Sheriff’s son, is the Hyde monster who committed heinous murders at Nevermore. She also discovered that the school’s botany professor, Marilyn Thornhill, is actually Laurel Gates, who was thought to have died years before.
She was the Hyde master who controlled Tyler and hypnotized him into his monstrous form, and she sought vengeance on the Outcasts who murdered her family. Wednesday and her adversary, Bianca, eventually defeat Laurel and her evil cohorts.
Who Has Been Cast in Wednesday Season 2?

What is Wednesday Season 2’s Expected Release Date?
Once again, estimating is difficult! However, if we look at the season 1 timeline—which began filming in September 2021 and ended around March 2022 (adding in the 8 months it took for the show to hit our screens)—we can see that the total turnaround time from the beginning to end was around a year and a month.
If Netflix wants another season and follows the same plan, Wednesday would take six months to film and eight months to post-produce, putting the release date in the early to mid-2024 range! BRB, bringing this timeline to life.
What to Expect From Wednesday Season 2
There are several intriguing storylines lingering for Wednesday season 2, ranging from a new villain for next season to a nostalgic reunion. One of the more pressing is figuring out who Wednesday’s new stalker is in season 2.
Wednesday season 1 did not reveal any information about the stalker’s identity, so viewers will have to speculate until Wednesday season 2 arrives.
Another significant event that must occur in Wednesday season 2 is the appearance of more The Addams Family characters, with many fans hoping to see missing characters Grandmama and Cousin It appears in the new season so that the show can fully explore the franchise’s potential.
While fans wait for the season 2 renewal, they can watch Wednesday season 1 on Netflix right now.
