They’re frightening, spooky, and will give spectators a second helping of spooky. That’s right: “The Addams Family 2” is rapidly approaching its launch. “The Addams Family,” the most current feature film based on the characters created by artist Charles Addams, was released two years ago. Since their origin in the late 1930s, America’s most macabre family has appeared in various media, including comic books, animated specials, live-action feature films, and the 1960s live-action television series starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones.

The animated film, directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon of “Sausage Party,” reintroduces spectators to the titular Addams family: parents Gomez and Morticia, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, as well as Uncle Fester and Grandmama.
The Addams Family is forced to relocate after being hounded out of their tiny village owing to their unsettling and eccentric lifestyle. They create their new home in a scary abandoned house on the outskirts of town, as is customary. As they move down, their presence disrupts the town’s more traditional way of life, resulting in a feud between the family and the town before Wednesday saves the day.
The sequel to “The Addams Family” was promptly greenlit, according to Deadline, which broke the news during the original film’s opening weekend in October 2019. Since then, there has been little fresh information about the sequel. Here’s all we know about “The Addams Family 2” so far, with the premiere approaches.
When does The Addams Family 2 come out?
“The Addams Family 2,” like its predecessor, will be released in October, the spookiest month of the year. “The Addams Family 2” will be released on October 1, 2021. If all of the release dates hold true, “The Addams Family 2” will launch in cinemas with another Warner Bros. film, “Dune,” which will also benefit from a day-and-date HBO Max release.
Since it was initially announced, the release date for “The Addams Family 2” has changed a few times. When Deadline revealed “The Addams Family 2” during “The Addams Family’s” opening weekend box office statistics, they picked October 22, 2021, as the debut date. In October 2020, “The Addams Family 2” debuted a new poster and announced a new release date of October 8, 2021. (via People). The Hollywood Reporter reported in January 2021 that “The Addams Family 2” has been pushed up another week to October 1 as MGM shuffled release dates for several of its biggest forthcoming projects.
Who is in The Addams Family 2’s cast?
In “The Addams Family 2,” the bulk of the iconic voices that fans originally heard in 2019’s “The Addams Family” will return for more creepy ooky fun. Charlize Theron and Oscar Isaac will reprise their roles as Morticia and Gomez Addams, respectively, and Chloe Grace Moretz will reprise her role as Wednesday Addams, their oldest child.
While Finn Wolfhard of “Stranger Things” provided the voice of younger kid Pugsley in the previous film, “The Addams Family 2” will have a new actor in that position (more on that in just a moment). Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, and Snoop Dogg will reprise their roles as Uncle Fester, Grandma, and Cousin It, respectively, in addition to Theron, Isaac, and Moretz.
In addition to the majority of the original cast returning, “The Addams Family 2” boasts two intriguing new additions to the voice cast. “SNL” alum Bill Hader and “Euphoria” actor Javon “Wanna” Walton has joined “The Addams Family 2,” according to Deadline in October 2020. Hader’s persona is still shrouded in mystery. In fact, the only thing we know about Hader’s role is that he will play Cyrus. We also discovered that Walton will be taking over as Pugsley’s voice.
What is The Addams Family 2’s plot?
Unfortunately, no new information on “The Addams Family 2’s” narrative has been provided. Despite the film’s impending October 2021 release date, the only information we have about the narrative comes from the IMDb synopsis: “The Addams get tied up in more bizarre escapades and find themselves entangled in funny run-ins with all sorts of unexpected folks.”
Although there isn’t much information about the narrative of “The Addams Family 2,” we may make educated guesses about what might happen in the sequel. The hint of “hilarious run-ins with unsuspecting folks” opens the door for additional Addams family interactions with the terrifyingly typical suburbanites they met in the previous film.
Despite the fact that the Addams family is still apparently living in the bucolic New Jersey town of Assimilation when “The Addams Family 2” begins, it’s feasible that a figure from the family’s prior existence may reappear to create some problems. There’s also the matter of Hader’s character, Clyde, and how he fits into this tale – it’s likely that facts about the character are being suppressed since he’s the film’s villain and/or crucial to the plot in some manner.
One thing is certain: unlike other “Addams Family” animated specials and live-action films, the first “Addams Family” animated film conveyed a poignant narrative. Fans anticipating the debut of this animated sequel should keep an open mind about the narrative, at least until the official teaser is revealed.
Is a trailer for The Addams Family 2 available?
“The Addams Family 2” has yet to receive an official trailer. However, with the sequel’s release only a few months away, fans should expect to see a trailer soon. However, just because there isn’t an official trailer for the sequel doesn’t mean there isn’t fresh content to check out. In reality, in October 2020, MGM published a delightful teaser for “The Addams Family 2.” To advertise the October 8, 2021 release date, a teaser trailer was released a year in advance (via Den of Geek).
The teaser video has no official footage, but it does feature appearances from Nick Kroll’s Uncle Fester, Chloe Grace Moretz’s Wednesday Addams, and the otherworldly creatures of “The Addams Family,” including Pugsley’s pet octopus Aristotle, Thing, and Cousin Itt. In the teaser trailer, all of the characters assemble to reveal the October 2021 release date, which has been significantly changed.
