A spin-off of The Addams Family would always be appreciated (at least in our broken neck of the woods), and it’s no surprise that the eldest kid, Wednesday, received particular attention.
Christina Ricci’s terrifying, charming performance as Morticia Addams in the Barry Sonnenfeld films raised the firstborn Addams to iconic stature. Wednesday was once again the centerpiece when the franchise got animated in 2019 (this time voiced by Chlo Moretz).
There’s a new Netflix mystery series starring our favorite emo (short for ’emotionally dead inside’).
Wednesday promises an indulgent dose of the strange and fantastic — along with some great monochromatic outfits and iconic dance movements — as it delves inside the psyche of probably the most mysterious Addams on her mission to find out who is maiming and killing the citizens of Jericho.
Naturally, we began digging for hints about the series’ future, just like Wednesday (Jenna Ortega).
Wednesday’s conclusion delivered a few surprises, leaving fans guessing who sent the cryptic text, but we’ll need more than guesswork to satiate our curiosity. Another season is the obvious solution, but will there be one?
Here’s what we know about the second season of Wednesday.
Wednesday Season 2 Release Date: TBD
Netflix has confirmed that Wednesday Season 2 will return to the platform. However, the announcement teaser, which reminded viewers how tortured Wednesday Addams (again played by Jenna Ortega) has been due to the unending amount of cosplayers impersonating her, did not disclose anything significant other than the show’s return for a second season. As a result, we don’t know when Wednesday Season 2 will broadcast, or even whether development for the next season has begun at all.
Wednesday season 2 cast
Unfortunately, there has been no official announcement on who will return (or make their debut) in Wednesday season 2. But, just in case you’re wondering, here’s a list of everyone from Season 1 who may return:
- Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams
- Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams
- Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe

Wednesday season 2 plot: What will happen?
We mentioned loose strings, and boy, were they left flying in the air. Despite her predilection for misery, she didn’t appear to enjoy Wednesday’s news that her boyfriend was the monster terrorizing Nevermore.
As a double dose of treachery, he was being controlled by Ms. Thornhill, a teacher favorite who turned out to be a disgruntled normie with a grudge towards the misfits.
We doubt Tyler will remain Ms. Thornhill’s controlled ‘pet,’ but we’re almost certain he fled — and even more confident he’ll reemerge in Wednesday’s life. However, whether he is a friend, lover, or adversary has yet to be decided.
However, Tyler actor Hunter Doohan has his own beliefs about his character’s fate. Doohan told Digital Spy in an exclusive interview that he was confident his troubled Tyler escaped the hands of the cops.
“I believe he fled in the end. I was overjoyed when I saw that on the page. ‘Come on, don’t be dead, don’t be dead,’ I said “he stated.
Doohan’s statement regarding Tyler’s season 1 arc sheds some clues on which kind of Tyler (good or evil) we could witness in season 2.
“I think he was being controlled by Miss Thornhill,” Doohan claimed. “Then he had to go influence Wednesday to follow out their strategy, and I believe he did a fairly decent job with that.”
If he was duped, it might suggest that redemption awaits him if he can break free from Ms. Thornhill’s clutches.
However, there may be more baddies to keep an eye on.
The episode mentioned the ominous presence of the Morning Songs, a cult-like group headed by Bianca’s siren mother, capable of bringing in new members a few times. Bianca’s mother pushed her into consenting to join them in order to enhance their compelling case.
There’s certainly room and opportunity to raise the Morning Songs to the primary villain level in Wednesday season 2. Keep an eye on the situation.
The mysterious texter is absolutely something that has to be cleared up. Soon after Xavier gives Wednesday a brand-new phone, she receives a strange, menacing text message packed with stalker-y photographs of herself.
Who was the sender? That’s unknown, but it’s the type of threat that will set Wednesday’s soul on fire. It’s also something that will undoubtedly assist set the wheels of a season 2 plot in motion.
