Netflix’s Wednesday series was a hit. It broke all sorts of viewing records for Netflix since it premiered on November 23, 2022, and it seemed like practically everyone on the internet has been talking about the show–or at least half the internet has been trying to recreate Jenna Ortega’s infamous dance.
In an exclusive interview with Tudum, Creators/Showrunners/Executive Producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar said the following:
It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world. Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.
Here is the official announcement video:
Further information about the second season such as story ideas, filming, or premiere date will be revealed later.
