Netflix Confirms Wednesday Season 2 Delighting Fans
After enduring ten weeks of uncertainty following the Netflix debut of the show, fans received the long-awaited news of an official confirmation for a second season. On January 6, 2023, Netflix released a video featuring Jenna Ortega, who plays Wednesday, expressing her experiences amidst fan frenzy.
In this video, Jenna Ortega, amidst a montage of season-one clips and fan event footage, stated, “Over the past few weeks, I’ve been hunted, haunted, and mimicked millions of times across the internet. It’s been pure torture. Thank you.”
Accompanied by Lady Gaga’s ‘Bloody Mary’ as the soundtrack (a favorite among TikTok’s Wednesday enthusiasts for their dance tributes), Netflix made the eagerly anticipated announcement: “More misery is coming. The global phenomenon will return for season two.”
Although this announcement provided no further details about the upcoming season, subsequent developments have shed some light on the situation.
While attending the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix in June, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas revealed that the show was scheduled to return to Netflix before the end of 2023.
During an interview with Martin Brundle on his Sky Sports F1 grid walk three months ago, Michael mentioned his break from acting, saying, “Catherine starts on the second year of Wednesday — that’s this fall.” Catherine added that it was expected to be on Netflix “at the end of the year.”
However, since then, there has been no official word regarding the production status of the second season of “Wednesday.” It’s worth noting that several successful shows have faced delays and uncertainties due to ongoing strikes involving writers and actors.
