On January 6, 2023, Netflix dropped a YouTube short video featuring Wednesday actor Jenna Ortega. She is focused on typing on the typewriter, she types the words ‘The End’ followed by a question mark, and the camera pans to her face. Seeing this, most fans, including us, were excited at the possibility of season 2. Now that things are officially confirmed, we can look forward to another entertaining season.
Wednesday Season 2 OTT Release Date: Where and when can you watch it online
Reports have been rife that a season 2 series is on the cards. Earlier last week, there were also reports suggesting that the popular show may switch platforms from Netflix to Amazon Prime Video. There was a lot of conjecture and debate on this. However, now that Netflix has posted in regards to season 2, we can be assured that the forthcoming season will indeed be airing on Netflix. Details regarding filming and release date still continue to be sketchy.
Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video – Why the Wednesday season 2 OTT platform shift rumours
While we are at the topic, we will also explain why this debate erupted in the first place. In 2022, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM Studios) signed an $8.5 billion deal with Amazon. Since Amazon has taken MGM Studios (which is one of the producers for the series Wednesday) under its wings, people started to wonder if the next instalment of Wednesday would be on Amazon Prime Video. As soon as the news started to go viral a counterargument also started to do the rounds. As per this argument, since Wednesday was locked in for Netflix before Amazon acquired MGM Television, the series is likely to stay on the same platform. Now things are crystal clear that the next season is in the works and will indeed make its way to Netflix.
Wednesday Season 1 – Premise
Wednesday, Addams is expelled from her school when she dumps living piranhas in the school’s swimming pool as the water polo team boys bully her brother. Gomez and Morticia, her parents, enrol her at their school, Nevermore Academy. It is a private school for monstrous outcasts’, in Jericho, Vermont. She finds it hard to connect with her fellow schoolmates. A little dead on the inside, the smart, sarcastic Wednesday investigates murders while making new friends and foes at the Nevermore Academy. As twists unfold, she discovers she has inherited her mother’s psychic abilities. Abilities allow her to solve the murders.
Wednesday Season 2 – About the series
Reports peg that the showrunners of the series are scouting locations to film Wednesday Season 2. However, nothing is official yet. In season 1, the school was closed, which opens the possibility of a season 2 of the series. It can explore Wednesday’s friendships, and Wednesday and Morticia’s dynamic can be explored. There are a lot of stories that can be explored in the upcoming seasons and a lot of fan theories are already floating on social networking sites and Reddit.
It will be a delight for the Wednesday fans when Jenna Ortega returns, essaying the titular character of Wednesday Addams, in Wednesday season 2. In a recent interview, Jenna Ortega mentioned that she wants season 2 to be darker than the first. As ardent fans of the series, we would also like that. While we wait for the second season to commence, we would like to point out that in a recent interaction, makers of the show Miles Millar and Al Gough hope that Wednesday will stretch out for ‘four seasons’. Now that we have the confirmation for season 2, lets see if we get details for the forthcoming ones as well.
