More recently, though, the future of the show has been making headlines. It was speculated that the show could leave Netflix for Amazon Prime. However, it seems that Netflix has put pay to that rumour, and teased a second season of the show will be coming to the platform.
However, the Addams Family spinoff was confirmed to be returning to Netflix for a second season on Friday (January 6). The show, which was released in November, stars Jenna Ortega as the titular enfant terrible who attends a boarding school called Nevermore Academy.
In a video posted online at the time, Netflix officially announced that more episodes are in development. “Over the past few weeks, I’ve been hunted, haunted, and mimicked millions of times across the internet,” narrates Ortega during the minute-long clip. “It’s been pure torture. Thank you.” A sped-up remix from TikTok of Lady Gaga‘s 2011 song ‘Bloody Mary’ plays in the background.
‘Wednesday’ season 1 is currently available to stream on Netflix.
