It has been almost a year since the premiere of a series that became a monumental Netflix success. Questions surrounding its continuation were simply formalities. Production on the second season of "Wednesday" was delayed due to film industry strikes. However, things are now picking up pace once more.

"Wednesday," a creation by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, premiered on Netflix in November 2022. The series spotlights the title character, a member of the famous Addams family. Christina Ricci personifies her in films, while Jenna Ortega plays her on the small screen. In season one, the morbidly witty and sarcastic teen investigates a series of murders, resulting in new friendships and rivalries at Nevermore Academy.

When Will Filming Begin for the Second Season of "Wednesday"?

According to Deadline, filming for the second season is set to start in April of the upcoming year. Unlike in season one, filming locations haven't been selected in Romania. The entirety of the action will be situated in Ireland, likely due to logistical reasons.

Following the end of the Hollywood filmmakers' strike, the immensely popular "Wednesday"—which even gave birth to its own internet meme—seems to be high on the platform's agenda. But fans can likely expect the premiere of the new season only around the cusp of 2024 and 2025.

What Will the Second Season of "Wednesday" Entail?

Specifics about the second season's plot remain under wraps. What is known is that scripting is currently underway. Showrunners have shared their desire to delve deeper into familial themes, particularly the mother-daughter dynamic. Hence, audiences are likely to see more of the Addams’ household in the future episodes.

"We feel like we've barely scraped the surface when it comes to these characters, our actors have portrayed them fantastically. Catherine [Zeta-Jones], I believe, is an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also vital to the series, as is the concept that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path independent of her family. I certainly want to showcase the family more, as we did in a few episodes this season," Miles Millar confessed in a talk with TVLine.

Jenna Ortega, the actor behind the titular character, will also serve as a producer for the show. It's highly likely that Tim Burton, the renowned director known for his unique artistry and who helmed half of the episodes in season one, will return to work on the show.

"Wednesday" season one is available on Netflix.
