Get ready, lovers of all things spooky: “Wednesday” has been officially renewed for a second season. Netflix announced the news on Jan. 6 with a short teaser featuring footage of Jenna Ortega as the titular Wednesday alongside scenes from the show and footage of fan events. The clip also used Lady Gaga’s “Bloody Mary” as its soundtrack, a song that became associated with the show on TikTok. “The global phenomenon will return for season two,” Netflix said in the clip.

Netflix teased the continuation of the hit Addams Family series with a tweet posted a day earlier on Jan. 5, sharing a clip of Wednesday (Ortega) from the season finale where she’s sitting at her typewriter. She writes, “The End,” at the end of her novel manuscript before adding a question mark, and Netflix simply captioned the video “???????”

It seemed obvious that Netflix would indeed renew “Wednesday” since it’s been a runaway hit following its November 2022 debut. On Jan. 3, the streamer announced that the series was once again the most-watched show on its English-language TV series list. The show also went viral on TikTok after tons of viewers mimicked Ortega’s iconic dance and earned two 2023 Golden Globes nominations.

“Wednesday” was created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on cartoonist Charles Addams’s Addams Family concept. The first four episodes of the Netflix series were directed by Tim Burton. When the show returns, Ortega will, of course, be back, and it’s possible most of the cast who made it out of season one alive with her will return to Nevermore Academy, including Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair and Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay. The show also features Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, and Victor Dorobantu as Thing. It’s not clear yet what release date Netflix has in mind for the second season.

Ortega shared her wishes for season two in a Nov. 30 interview with “Entertainment Tonight.” “I kind of want her to be darker,” she said. “I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe, because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of a competitiveness. Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?'”

Ortega added, “I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero.” Well, we’re here for whatever she has in mind.
