‘Wednesday’ Season 2: Everything We Know So Far



The Tim Burton-produced, delightfully funny Netflix mystery starring Jenna Ortega as the titular snarky, cello-playing sociopath in the making returns to the streamer for a second season. Here’s everything we know so far.

Will the cast of Wednesday back for season 2?

Yes, the cast members who survived season one: Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair), Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia Addams), Luis Guzmán (Gomez Addams), and Fred Armisen (Uncle Fester), alongside Ortega’s Wednesday Addams, will all return. However, Percy Hynes White’s Xavier Thorpe won’t do that – last year, the actor faced allegations of sexual misconduct, which he denied. (In response to the news that he wouldn’t be back, he posted a photo of the season two cast on Instagram and wrote, “I had so much fun working on this show. Can’t wait to watch season two .” Lots of love.†)

Meanwhile, the fate of those who died last time is less certain. These include – spoiler alert – Dr. Valerie Kinbott of Riki Lindhome, Wednesday’s court-ordered therapist, who was mauled by the Hyde. It’s unlikely she’ll return for season two, but of course nothing is impossible with Nevermore.

Then there’s Larissa Weems, Gwendoline Christie’s school principal, who was murdered by Christina Ricci’s Laurel Gates. Speak with Digital spy in 2022, Christie said of her character: “We didn’t see her put in the ground, did we? I feel like Larissa Weems wouldn’t really be willing to entertain or be dominated by something as mundane as death.†However, it’s also possible she won’t return for the next episode.

And as for Gates himself? Her return seems most likely. Yes, she was defeated by a swarm of bees and kicked as of Wednesday at the end of last season, but her death was never confirmed. As a result, it is possible that she was hospitalized and subsequently imprisoned for murder. At the request of Entertainment tonight about her future Wednesday Last spring, Ricci responded, “I don’t think I’m allowed to say that. The door is open on my side. She was so much fun to play! It’s always so much fun playing a villain.†Watch this space.

Who joins the cast of Wednesday for season 2?

Excitingly, there will be plenty of new blood too: in April it was announced that both Thandiwe Newton and Steve Buscemi had joined the cast for the second part. Although character details are scarce, sources have reportedly told Variety that the latter will take on the role of Nevermore’s new director. Would you also like to participate? Billie Piper, Evie Templeton, Owen Painter and Noah Taylor all appear as regulars on the new series, while Joanna Lumley, Christopher Lloyd, Frances O’Connor, Haley Joel Osment, Heather Matarazzo and Joonas Suotamo will appear as guest stars. In a teaser showing Thing handing off the Season 2 scripts to cast members, it was also revealed that Lumley would play the matriarch of the Addams family, “Grandmama”.
