Netflix announced today that “Wednesday” has been renewed for a second season, having already surpassed 1.02 billion total hours viewed in its third week of debut.
November saw the debut of ‘Addams Family’ spinoff series, starring Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams. In her first year at Nevermore Academy, she develops her psychic powers and investigates a strange supernatural mystery lurking in the town.
Netflix shared an announcement video featuring a recap of Season One. It showed Wednesday being pursued by the Hyde, Goody and other eerie occurrences. Ortega said in the clip: “I’ve been hunted, haunted and mimicked millions of times online – it’s been torture! Thank you!”

“Wednesday’s” Season 2 should come as no surprise: the first season was streamed by over 150 million households, making it Netflix’s #2 most-watched English series.
The premiere of season one caused a sensation online, with #TikTok trending and The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” getting an unexpected revival. With two Golden Globe nominations, fans will find out next Tuesday if the family-friendly show receives recognition when the awards ceremony airs on January 10th.
Netflix subscribers will be delighted to experience more escapades from their beloved misfits and peculiar characters.
“We’re excited to journey into the eerie world of Nevermore and continue Wednesday’s twisted story in Season 2,” said Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, co-showrunners of “Wednesday”, in an interview with Tudum, the official Netflix blog. “It’s been amazing to see how people have connected with our show around the world.”
Millar highlighted the season one finale as a preview of what’s to come in the next season. Viewers saw Wednesday receive an ominous text from an anonymous stalker, reinforcing that Hyde is still out there and threatening our protagonists.
Millar noted that the stalker proved there were still threats to Wednesday and the school, and not all issues had been resolved as she thought.
No release date for season two has been announced yet, but we eagerly await news of what lies ahead for the characters of Nevermore.
