Tim Burton’s Addams Family spin-off has landed on Netflix, capturing the attention of fans with a Wednesday-centric story.

The legendary clan, of whom there have been many on-screen iterations over the years, are portrayed by a brand-new cast in Wednesday, but they're still as kooky and creepy as ever.

Jenna Ortega portrays the titular character, while Luis Guzmán and Catherine Zeta-Jones play Gomez and Morticia Addams respectively.

Fans who've already binged the series will know that it ended on a big cliffhanger and, naturally, thoughts are already turning towards a second season.

So, is the creepy series coming back for more episodes on Netflix and which cast members could return? Here's everything we know so far about a possible Wednesday season 2.

Will there be a Wednesday season 2?

Wednesday season 2 has yet to be confirmed.

Netflix has not yet announced whether Wednesday will be officially back for a second season, but the show's creators are hoping for more from this incarnation of the Addams Family.

Speaking to Empire (via ScreenRant) about the future of the show, co-creator Alfred Gough said: "Miles [Millar] and I are talking amongst ourselves about it. There's definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses."

Meanwhile, star Jenna Ortega – who plays the titular Wednesday – told NME that she has "no idea" if the show will come back.

We'll have to keep our fingers crossed that the doors of the Nevermore Academy open once again!

When could a potential Wednesday season 2 come out?

While Netflix is still yet to confirm whether season 2 is going ahead, we can take an educated guess as to when we can expect Wednesday to return if it gets the green light.

Filming on the Tim Burton project began in September last year and finished in March 2022 – and so it's unlikely we would see a potential second season of Wednesday until the beginning of 2024 at the earliest.

The following Wednesday cast members could possibly return for the second season.

  • Jenny Ortega as Wednesday Addams
  • Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams
  • Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams
  • Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams
  • Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester
  • Gwendoline Christie as Principal Larissa Weems
  • Jamie McShane as Sheriff Galpin
  • Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe
  • Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin
  • Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair
  • Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay

It wouldn't be Wednesday without Jenna Ortega reprising the iconic role of goth teenager Wednesday Addams, while it's likely that Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez and Fred Armisen would be returning as Morticia, Gomez, Pugsley and Uncle Fester.

While we're yet to find out what will happen to the characters introduced in the show – particularly as season 1 sees a monstrous killing spree terrorise the local town near Nevermore Academy – hopefully, we'll see the likes of Gwendoline Christie (Principal Larissa Weems), Jamie McShane (Sheriff Galpin), Percy Hynes White (Xavier Thorpe), Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair), Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay) and the other starts of this remake in season 2.

There are a lot of antics from the Nevermore Academy and the aftermath of that killer plotline to unpack but it seems we already know what we could see more of in future if Wednesday is renewed for a second run.

One thing that showrunner Al Gough is keen to add more of in the second season is the Addams Family themselves.

Speaking to TV Line, Gough said: "We felt like we just touched the surface with those characters and the actors are so amazing in those roles.

"Catherine is, I think, an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path outside the family is important."

He added: "[We] definitely want to feature the family as we did this season in a couple of episodes if we were to get a second season."

Wednesday is streaming now on Netflix. Sign up for Netflix from £6.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
