Wednesday Season 2 Could Feature More Addams Family Characters

While the series has yet to be renewed, its creative team has big ambitions for a possible second season.

The Addams Family is one of those qualities that never really dies. What began as a comic strip in 1938 soon became an iconic TV sitcom, a 1970s Hanna-Barbera cartoon, a popular 1990s film series, a Broadway musical, and a 2019 animated film, to name but a few iterations to call. So it was little surprise when Netflix announced Wednesday, a new series from director Tim Burton that focuses on the teenage exploits of Wednesday Addams (Jenna Ortega).

The series is less of an ensemble piece than previous Addams Family projects, but it still features beloved characters like Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Uncle Fester (Fred Armisen) in select episodes. Season 1 focuses primarily on establishing Wednesday life outside of the family home, but the addition of these characters leaves the door open to future Addams Family adventures.

In a new interview with TVLine, Wednesday co-creator and co-showrunner Al Gough made it very clear that he wants to include a lot more of the Addams Family if the show is renewed for a second season.

“We felt like we only scratched the surface with these characters, and the actors are so amazing in these roles,” he said. “Catherine is an iconic Morticia in my opinion. Wednesday and Morticia’s relationship is also integral to the show, and the idea of ​​Wednesday trying to find her own way outside of the family is important. [We] I definitely want to show the family like we did in a few episodes this season if we were to get a second season.”

In his Season 1 review, Ben Travers of IndieWire wrote, “By the season 1 roll, Wednesday is just a ‘strange’ kid who still makes lots of friends, courts a bunch of suitors, and saves the day. Little about her is startling or uncomfortable, other than her repeated quibbles about torturing people or enjoying a bit of terror. But when it comes to the macabre, Wednesday (and even more ‘Wednesday’) is all talk and little action — a well-rounded character hammered into the rectangular icon on your Netflix home screen by a conforming algorithm.”

Season 1 of Wednesday is now streaming on Netflix.
