Netflix clicks its fingers for a second season of Wednesday

January 7th, 2023 by Marc Comments

When it was revealed that Wednesday was a very, very big hit for Netflix, trailing behind only Squid Game and Stranger Things, we all expected the season 2 announcement pretty quickly but sadly, it never came.

Then, after a bit of a kerfuffle over the rights to the character – it seems Amazon has bought the rights to The Addams Family – some thought that season two might not come or, if it did, it might find itself on Amazon.

However, the rights were sold after season one of the Jenna Ortega-starring show, so we all were pretty confident that that wasn’t going to happen.

And it seems we were all right as Netflix as announced Season 2 of Wednesday.

“It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world. Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two,” said showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar said in a statement.

“We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.”

At the minute it’s unclear if Tim Burton will still be involved, but with a spin-off apparently in the works too, it seems Wednesday’s future at Netflix is assured. For now.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
