What We Know About Wednesday Season 2

Filming on the Netflix smash-hit series, Wednesday Season 2 started about a month or two ago. Upon the start of filming the show’s Instagram feed has given fans a taste of what off what is to come for Wednesday Addams and her merry band of outcasts.

In this post, we’re going to be breaking down what we know so far about Wednesday Season 2. We will not be including the crew because the only major change is that Jenna Ortega will be a producer on the second season.

Storyline

Let’s begin with the Season 2 plot for Wednesday. We don’t know what the initial plot is. But we do know that the romance plot will be removed and will make way for the new season to be influenced by horror. The information for this comes from Collider.

The romantic subplot received mixed reviews in Season 1, as did the love triangle between Tyler, Wednesday and Xavier. Jenna Ortega (Wednesday) said (as per Town and Country, see below link) she disliked the triangle too.

Town and Country reveals the season will explore Wednesday’s relationship with her mother, Morticia. There has been talk about Wednesday’s relationship with her best friend Enid being explored further.

The beauty of Wednesday has been that the episode titles were deprived of the nursery rhyme “Wednesday’s Child Is Full Of Woe“.

Wednesday Season 2 is no different. The first episode will be called “Here We Woe Again”
