Wednesday - Season 1
On possible future seasons, Gough and Millar commented in an interview with Variety, "when we sit down to create a show, it's looking at multiple seasons, ideally. That's never expected, but that's the anticipation that hopefully the show is successful." They further stated that they had "a pretty clear runway" of how future seasons could unfold. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gough and Millar stated that the second season would expand upon the friendship between Wednesday and Enid while also evolving Wednesday's relationship with her mother, Morticia. Preparations for a second season commenced in December 2022, following Amazon's acquisition of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. In January 2023, the series was renewed for a second season.
Wednesday - Season 1
Wednesday Addams is a high school student at Nevermore Academy. As the daughter of Morticia and Gonzo, she has an unconventional and dark-humored sensibility that makes her stand out from the crowd.In season 1, Wednesday uncovers the mystery behind an ongoing killing spree that is terrifying her town. She also makes new bonds with her fellow high school students and practices her unique psychic abilities.
Now that we know it's coming back, it's time to scour the internet for other details about Season 2, like when we can expect a release date, who will be in it, and information about what will happen in the season. Since the renewal is recent and the show only came out late last year, there's not much out there, but we did get some scoop straight from the cast and producers.
The showrunners hope to reveal more about the stalker in the second season. "We know who it is, we can't tease who it is," Millar said. "We certainly have big plans and lots more stories to tell in terms of Wednesday and her friends." Gough said he can't share whether viewers have already met the person who is the stalker.
We are eagerly awaiting new developments for the relationships that Wednesday formed across the first season. Of course, there's the matter of Tyler Galpin (Hunter Doohan), the seemingly harmless "normie" who became romantically interested in Wednesday but turned out to be the monstrous Hyde she had been after. Tyler, in his Hyde form, fought a wolfed-out Enid (Emma Myers) in Wednesday's final episode and was defeated. We don't know what's next for the character, but he ended the series waking up in a car, albeit in chains, which definitely left the door open for a return.
If you're looking for something similar to Wednesday to watch while you wait for news of a second season, take a look at this list of shows like Wednesday TV Guide has put together, which includes Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a show so much like Wednesday you'll experience deja vu when you watch it.
The season finale provides quite a few possibilities for who that stalker may be. It could definitely be a new character - or, given that the series is structured as a mystery, it could be someone that Wednesday had previously been interacting with all season. Could it be Sheriff Galpin (Jamie McShane) is out for vengeance after Wednesday uncovered the truth about his son Tyler (Hunter Doohan)?
Or perhaps it could be one of the background students at Nevermore. Curiously, one student named Yoko Tanaka (Naomi J. Ogawa) is listed in the main cast, but is given very little to do in season 1. Perhaps her role is destined to be expanded in future seasons of Wednesday.
When they return to the school, Weems immediately expels Wednesday. The principal is disappointed that her student didn't even try to cooperate with her, but Wednesday points out that Weems has been lightly shady all season (in response to Wednesday's impulsivity, but still). Wednesday asks for more time to prove that Tyler's mom was a Hyde, as her identity wasn't public when she was a Nevermore student with Weems, but Weems refuses, telling the girl to pack up and say her goodbyes before she leaves the next afternoon.
So Thornhill is the one whose been working with Tyler/Hyde, and the next scene we see is Wednesday confronting her that night (so much for that train). Thornhill's motive lies within the mystery of Laurel Gates, the sister of Garrett Gates, the anti-outcast assassin who Gomez Addams was accused of murdering. After Garrett's failed assassination plot with the nightshade at the Nevermore death, Laurel was presumed to have drowned. However, earlier in the season, Goody Addams pointed Wednesday towards the abandoned Gates home via vision, where Wednesday discovered that Laurel was actually alive and hiding the Hyde victim's body parts in the basement. So Laurel Gates was the one controlling the Hyde, but Wednesday had assumed that her secret identity was Kinbott when it was acutally poisonous-plant-cultivating Thornhill.
However, there is a chance that Weems could somehow return for Season 2 of this show populated with fangs, furs, scales, and stoners. Even Christie herself (opens in new tab) pointed out that we never see what happens to Weems' body after her final scene. Here's hoping that there's a spot for her once they announce a renewal. (Or if not, we can tune in to see Christie play the literal devil in The Sandman (opens in new tab)'s forthcoming season.)
Things are looking pretty dire for Wednesday, but she has allies on the way, with Thing breaking up Enid and Ajax's makeout session to rally the troops. (Even Eugene's on t
