Wednesday season 2: it's official, Netflix is renewing the series
It's official, the Netflix series Wednesday, created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, will have the right to a season 2 on the platform.
After the poor special effects of Alice in Wonderland, the uneven humor of Dark Shadows, and the flatness of Miss Peregrine and Dumbo, the so-called return of Tim Burton with Wednesdaywas not very spectacular. Admittedly, the series created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar is sometimes fun and funny, and Jenna Ortega is flamboyant in it, but the lack of personality and the general stupidity of the Netflix production got the better of the sympathy of the whole .
That, however, hasn't stopped Wednesday from being a hit on Netflix. And if some rumors had cast doubt on the fate of the series at N rouge, which did not go far from the Amazon Prime Video box, Netflix has formalized that season 2 of Wednesdaywould indeed arrive on its platform. So creators and showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar recently welcomed the news in an official statement:
“It's amazing to create a series that has touched people all over the world. We're so excited to continue the twisty adventures of Wednesday in a Season 2. We can't wait to dive headfirst into another season and… 'exploring the eerie world of Nevermore. Let's just make sure Wednesday didn't empty the pool upstream.”
As a reminder, since his Released on November 23, 2022, Wednesday became Netflix's third most popular series, just behind Stranger Things and Squid Game. It should be noted that Alfred Gough revealed, during a previous interview for the Hollywood Reporter, that the duo of screenwriters was going to explore more, in the future, the exterior of the Nevermore Academy. Additionally, some important characters from the first season, such as Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Enid (Emma Myers), will be further developed in Season 2 of Wednesday.
No information has yet been transmitted on the possible return of Tim Burton to the production and/or direction of this season 2. While waiting to find out more, remember that the director of Edward Scissorhands is still working on a sequel to one of his very first films, the thrilling Beetlejuice. Jenna Ortega, meanwhile, will return in the next Scream which will land on March 8 in French cinemas.
