After being stalked by a bloodthirsty monster, dealing with normies, battling teenagers in Nevermore Academy, and having her Rave’N gown ruined by fake blood, Wednesday Addams isn’t shying away from season two.

Diehard Addams Family fans questioned if they would enjoy a series reboot but were thoroughly impressed when the heart and soul – or lack thereof – was the essence of Wednesday.

Now, the hit series by Netflix returns for a second season which officially entered production in May 2024.

With another season comes new cast, new storylines and new threats. Ahead of Wednesday season two, we investigate all the details – continue scrolling to read.

What is the plot for Wednesday season two?

Cementing herself as a spooky teenage detective in season one, Wednesday will continue her supernatural adventures in the upcoming season.

A more “torturous journey” has already been promised – sadistic Wednesday should thoroughly enjoy the plot.

The first season came to a vicious end with suspecting Marilyn was discovered to be the villain, controlling a murderous monster, The Hyde – uncovered to be Tyler Galpin. Just when the viewer believed all was safe and well in the gloomy town of Jericho, Netflix showed Tyler turning into his monstrous alter ego to escape – meaning he will most likely return for another season.

However, the specific plot for season two is yet to be revealed.

Wednesday season two release date:

While it is confirmed that Wednesday season two is well on the way, when the new season will launch on Netflix remains unknown.

However, Netflix has previously released a schedule of planned releases for 2024, and Wednesday unsurprisingly didn’t make the cut. Deadline has reported the new season will air sometime in 2025.

The season was significantly delayed due to the WGA and SAG-Aftra strikes in the US, considering another season was confirmed in January 2023.

Reprising her role as Wednesday Addams is Jenna Ortega, joined by regulars Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair), Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay).

There are a number of new guest stars this season including Joanna Lumley, Thandiwe Newton, Fred Armisen, Christopher Lloyd, Frances O’Connor, Haley Joel Osment, Heather Matarazzo and Joonas Suotamo.
