Wednesday’s Season 2 Arc Teased By Co-Showrunner
Miles Millar, the co-showrunner for Netflix’s Wednesday, teases Wednesday’s story arc in a potential season 2 of the horror-comedy series.
Co-showrunner of Netflix’s Wednesday, Miles Millar, teases Wednesday’s story arc in season 2. Millar runs Wednesday alongside Alfred Gough and under the guidance of director and executive producer Tim Burton. The series follows Wednesday Addams during her time at Nevermore Academy, where she works to hone her psychic abilities while unraveling a mystery involving her parents. Jenna Ortega leads the cast in the title role alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Riki Lindhome, Gwendoline Christie, and Christina Ricci.
While speaking with TVLine, Millar talked about the potential storyline of season 2 of Wednesday. Along with teasing more of the Addams family, as Morticia and Gomez Addams appeared in two episodes, the showrunner says that with season 2, Wednesday will have to learn how to navigate friendships. Check out Millar’s comments on Wednesday season 2 below:
“The series is really about a girl who sees the world in black and white, and learning there are shades of gray. I think like any relationship or any friendship, it can get complicated by other factors. It’s never going to be smooth sailing. And it’s really her learning to navigate the ups and downs of friendship.”
Will Wednesday Season 2 Happen?
Season 1 of Wednesday saw the students of Nevermore Academy rise up under the leadership of Wednesday to thwart the insidious plan to eliminate the school’s outcasts. And while that storyline was wrapped up, the show has left plenty of questions for season 2 to answer. In addition, the series left audiences wondering what will happen to Laurel Gates, whether Wednesday will return to Nevermore Academy, and even the identity of Wednesday’s stalker, leaving plenty of material for another season to cover.
Wednesday debuted all eight episodes of the first season on Netflix on November 23, allowing fans to binge their way through. Since its premiere, the show has held tight to the #1 spot on Netflix’s Top 10 rankings, indicating that the series is popular with subscribers. Wednesday has even landed with critics, holding a 72% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with audiences seeming to enjoy it even more, giving it an 88% Fresh score. So with the warm reception from audiences and its reign in Netflix’s Top 10, season 2 looks like a promising prospect.
Wednesday has not yet been renewed for a second season. However, given that the show only debuted recently, it’s not strange for a renewal to still be lingering. Netflix was likely waiting to see how audiences responded to the show before green-lighting another season, and Wednesday looks to be garnering the attention and reviews needed to push forward with another batch of episodes. So while audiences will likely have to wait a bit for some news on Wednesday season 2, the future looks bright for the gloomy series.
