When the calendar shows Wednesday, we can't help but think of her. Wednesday Addams, that iconic dark-eyed character, is back for new adventures, and this time she's more bewitching than ever! Netflix already offered us a breathtaking dive into her life in season 1, and rumors are swirling as to when season 2 will be released. Helmed by genius Tim Burton, with young actress Jenna Ortega reprising her title role, this new salvo of episodes promises thrills and surprises. In this month of November, fans are on their toes, scrutinizing every official announcement from the platform. So, what does this second season have in store for Wednesday and her extraordinary family? Dive in with us for the latest news on this series that has already won over millions.
Official release date for Wednesday season 2
A dedicated twitter account has already indicated that filming of the second season of Wednesday Addams is due to start in September 2023. However, due to actors' strikes in Hollywood, filming could not take place. This makes it difficult to give a release date for this series on small screens in 2024. Some observers even say that this series may not return to small screens before 2025. So we'll have to wait for the end of the actors' strike before we can give a date for the official release of this second season of the series, and a new date for the start of filming on the second season. As a reminder, season 5 of Stranger Things was also postponed due to this strike.
