Netflix has renewed its new Addams Family series “Wednesday” for a second season which is expected to debut in 2024. Season one of the one-hour mystery drama centered around Wednesday Addams’ misadventures as a student at Nevermore Academy and was filmed in Romania—a trend that is likely to continue with season two.
In the first season of “Wednesday”, we find the titular character making her way through a very unique boarding school snuggled in deepest New England. Without ever blunting her bite, the show offers the chance to humanize Wednesday (Jenna Ortega). After getting kicked out of eight schools in five years she begins a new chapter in her life at Nevermore academy, the two-century-old boarding school attended by her parents.
However, Wednesday wants nothing to do with their alma mater and she’s already planning her escape. But this academy is like no other school she’s ever attended. It’s a school of outcasts with four groups – The Fangs (vampires), the Furs (werewolves), the Scales (sirens), and the Stoners (Gorgons). It is also a place of mystery that holds dark secrets about her family’s past.
Season one charted Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart
a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago and confront a dark supernatural threat — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
We can expect Season two to delve deeper into Wednesday’s budding friendships and love interests as she continues to solve more supernatural mysteries.
