As promised, Wednesday brought an ample dose of strange and beautiful as it opened open the psyche of probably the most mysterious Addams, and now many are wondering about Wednesday Season 2. A story centered on Wednesday was always going to be an intriguing idea, because it means more time with our favorite dark and twisted member of the Addams Family.
It took viewers on a lengthy, meandering murder-mystery journey as Wednesday tried to figure out who was maiming and murdering Jericho villagers, and naturally, we began digging for hints, just like Wednesday. The show’s climax had a few surprises that left viewers 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 a Wednesday Season 2?
Wednesday Season 2 Release Date
Wednesday has only been billed for 1 season as of now, but all of those loose ends imply that the producers have more plans for Wednesday Season 2. Alfred Gough, the series’ co-creator, discussed the prospect of expanding the franchise in an interview, saying that they are discussing it amongst themselves and there’s a lot more to discover in the world of the Addams. While Gough’s sentiment is broad and could lead to further investigation of other Addams’ stories, it appears highly unlikely that the duo would leave Wednesday’s story unfinished, indicating we will watch Wednesday Season 2 soon.
The only stumbling barrier might be the public’s reaction to the presentation: the Netflix deities only respond to clicks, so keep watching if you want to see more of Ortega as Wednesday. It’s impossible to imagine Wednesday and her right-hand man Thing not returning for Wednesday Season 2, so we’re hoping Ortega and Victor Dorobantu will be eager to reprise their roles.
Her nearly love interest Xavier Thorpe, played by Percy Hynes White, is bound to join her: rejected but not forgotten, the poor guy may have a chance now that Tyler is out of the picture. Wednesday’s sort-of boyfriend-turned-villain of the piece was jailed when we last saw him, but something tells us that the guttural growl he uttered at the end might lead to an escape, and if that’s the case, we fully anticipate Hunter Doohan to revert to his Hyde persona.
Christina Ricci’s oily Ms Thornhill might make a comeback if her dreams aren’t realized, and Gwendoline Christie’s Larissa Weems may have bitten the big one, but her death was a touch murky. It’s conceivable she’ll return, after all, resurrections are a thing in this universe. However, The Sandman has been renewed for a 2nd season, so there may be scheduling difficulties. We hope that this isn’t the case, because Christie is addicting as both Lucifer and Weems.
What is Wednesday’s full name?
Wednesday Friday Addams, the lone daughter in The Addams Family, is a fictitious character developed by American cartoonist Charles Addams, and the figure has also appeared in live-action and animated television shows.
Wednesday Season 1 Review
The announcement that Tim Burton will helm half of “Wednesday,” Netflix’s forthcoming dramedy about the Addams Family’s death-obsessed little daughter, peaked our attention as it would be Burton’s first major television project in 4 decades, following episodes of “Faerie Tale Theatre” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”
Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, widely known for the young-Superman series “Smallville,” developed the program, and the sensibility of “Wednesday” aligns with their previous work. The show features a high-minded teenage melodrama, and is certainly more focused on grim comedy, but, like “Smallville,” pretty well done and enjoyable. We wonder what they have in store for Wednesday Season 2.
The rest of the Addams Family is mainly missing from the program, despite the fact that the actors portraying those well-known characters are the show’s biggest stars: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán, who play Wednesday’s parents, Morticia and Gomez, appear in only one episode, as does Fred Armisen, who plays her Uncle Fester. Thing, the disembodied hand, is the only regular family member except for Wednesday. We expect them to return for Wednesday Season 2.
Wednesday opens with the heroine’s hallmark act of deliberate violence as if to show her credentials, and it gets her kicked out of high school. She’s older now than in previous renditions, reaching 16 during the season, and sent to her parent’s alma mater, Nevermore Academy, a Vermont school for “outcasts” with cliques made up of werewolves, vampires, sirens, and the like.
This places the program in the renaissance of supernatural high school dramas, complete with the obligatory town-versus-gown battle. When Wednesday finds that people are being murdered by a monster in the adjacent woods, she transforms into a girl detective, presenting us with an amazing story that is enjoyable to watch. Let’s hope we will be able to watch Wednesday Season 2 soon enough.
