Jenna Ortega Renewed Wednesday on Netflix for a More Semester
Old and young fans of “The Addams Family” simply cannot get enough of it, despite its antiquity and numerous iterations. Each of these characters, including Morticia, Gomez, Pugsley, Cousin It, and Uncle Fester, has a humorous quality that contrasts with the horrific aspects of their appearance and attitude.
Then there is Wednesday Addams, who prefers subversive, dark humor to overt slapstick and has been permanently immortalized by actresses Christina Ricci, Lisa Loring, and now Jenna Ortega in Netflix’s “Wednesday.” For a new generation, Ortega’s brilliantly funny, occasionally tense, and delectably dark performance gives the character justice.
The show’s first season was a success on the streaming service, but like any Netflix original, whether it’s popular or not, the corporation takes its time announcing a second season (via InStyle). This was also observed around the end of 2022 as “The Sandman” attracted substantial viewership in August just to linger in doubt before “The Sandman” Season 2 was announced three months later.
However, it should come as no surprise to anyone that “Wednesday” has finally been renewed for another semester at the eerie Nevermore school after over two months since the program made its app debut.
Wednesday’s Agonizing Journey into Season 2
Wednesday has been officially renewed by Netflix for Season 2. The show’s creators, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, stated in a statement to Tudum, “It’s been amazing to develop a show that appeals to viewers all over the world. We can’t wait to carry on with Wednesday’s agonizing journey into Season 2.” Also, they exclaimed, “We are eager to explore the strange, eerie land of Nevermore in yet another season. Just be sure Wednesday hasn’t already drained the pool.”
After Season 4 of “Stranger Things” and “Squid Game,” the series has reportedly become the streamer’s third most popular show. Gough underlined in a prior interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “Moving forward, we want to sort of investigate and complicate all of those ties. When they went, the school was closed, which provided us with the most opportunities for season two, and I believe that’s something we’re eager to investigate.”
The number of episodes in the upcoming release and the release date of Season 2 are both unknown. Tim Burton, who helmed the first four episodes of Season 1, is not known to return to direct additional episodes.
