The Wednesday production is finding a new home as we’ll see Netflix moving production from Romania to Ireland for the second season of the hit streaming series. Variety confirms the news, alongside that Tim Burton, Jenna Ortega, and crew are eyeing a production start date in Spring of 2024.
The show was a massive hit for the streamer. The Addams Family-themed horror comedy broke records, including the most hours viewed for an English language series in its first week with over 341 million hours. It received two Golden Globe nominations: Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy for Ortega. It also received Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Per the first season, Wednesday “attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”
With Jenna Ortega as the titular goth icon, the Season 1 cast includes Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Naomi J. Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, Riki Lindhome, and Christina Ricci. Catherine Zeta-Jones also appeared as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley.
At the time of writing, there’s no word on a potential release date for Netflix’s Wednesday Season 2, but the first season is available to stream now.
