Wednesday come back.
This shouldn’t be a big surprise. The new version of The Addams Family became the second biggest original series in Netflix just the story behind it Stranger Things Season 4. (Subscribers watched 1,237 billion hours off Wednesday in its first month of availability.) But now it’s official: Wednesday has been renewed for a second season on Netflix.
Netflix shared this video to announce the news:
Here was series creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar’s comment on the announcement:
It has been incredible to create a show that has connected with people all over the world… [we’re ] excited to continue Wednesday’s winding journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the crazy spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.
The series’ innovation was to put a teenage drama twist on the classic story of The Addams Familythe creepy and crazy characters first introduced by cartoonist Charles Addams in the The New Yorker magazine. The series followed Jenny Ortega’s Wednesday when she gets kicked out of school for, well, being Wednesday, and then attends her mother’s alma mater, Nevermore Academy. There she ends up getting involved in a murder mystery – and learns that she also has psychic powers to begin with.
In addition to its huge viewership around the world, Wednesday became a viral sensation online thanks to fans recreating its big dance sequence on TikTok. The YouTube clip of the big scene has been viewed 33 million times on Netflix alone.
If you’re not one of those who watched 1.2 billion hours Wednesday last fall, the first season is still available on Netflix.
