After more than 1.02 billion total hours watched in the third week after its debut, Netflix’s “Wednesday” has been renewed for a second season, the company said announced today.
The series originally launched in November with eight episodes. It centers on popular Addams Family character Wednesday Addams (played by Jenna Ortega) as she begins her freshman year as a student at Nevermore Academy. There she hones her psychic abilities and tries to solve a supernatural mystery that is haunting the city.
Netflix tweeted the announcement alongside a Video that shows a recap of Season 1, in which Wednesday is being hunted down by the Monsters of Nevermore Academy (aka Hyde), haunted by their ancestor, Goody, and more creepy antics. In the video, Ortega says, “In the past few weeks, I’ve been hunted, stalked, and impersonated millions of times across the internet. It was pure torture. Thank you.”

Needless to say, many Netflix subscribers will be delighted to see another round of adventures from their favorite outcasts and geeks.
“We can’t wait to dive headfirst into another season and explore the crazy, spooky world of Nevermore,” said Wednesday co-showrunners Miles Millar and Alfred Gough. said in an interview with Tudum, the official Netflix blog. “It was incredible to create a show that connects people around the world. We are thrilled to continue the torturous journey into Season 2 on Wednesday.”
Millar also pointed to the season one finale as a hint of what viewers can expect in the next season. For those who watched the finale, we know that Wednesday received a message from an unknown stalker, meaning the Hyde River threat still exists.
“[The stalker proves] that threats continue to exist…both for Wednesday and for the school,” Millar added. “Not all the loose ends were tied up neatly like she thinks they were.”
A release date for the second season is not yet known. Hopefully we’ll find out what’s in store for the characters of Nevermore soon.
