“wednesday” (“Merlina” in Latin America and “Miércoles” in Spain), a live action horror and dark comedy series created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, premiered on Netflix only on September 23, 2022, but fans of fiction based on the character “The Addams Family” are already asking for a second installment.
The series, which features a cast made up of Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci, follows the intelligent, sarcastic and a little dead inside Merlina Addams as she investigates a wave of murders.
After an incident at her old school, Morticia and Homer’s daughter is sent to Nevermore Academy, where she tries to harness her psychic powers and solve the supernatural mystery that plagued her family 25 years ago. Then, Will there be a new season ofwednesday”?
“WEDNESDAY”, WILL IT HAVE ANOTHER SEASON?
Until now, Netflix has not made any announcements about the future of the seriesbut as seen in the last chapter, Merlina’s dark adventures have not yet ended, so it is very likely that the fiction will be renewed for a second installment.
In fact, in an interview with Empire, co-creator Alfred Gough addressed the possibility of expanding the franchise, stating: “Miles (Millar, his fellow creator) and I are talking to each other about it. There is definitely more you can explore in the world of the Addams”.
Also, considering the good rating that “wednesday” has achieved, it is almost certain that Netflix will confirm a second season in the coming weeks. So Tim Burton is coming back to direct some new episodes?
At the end of the first season of “Wednesday”, Merlina gets into trouble with Principal Weems, but that was just the beginning and to fight an ancient demon required the help of all her friends. Although the protagonist got the victory, she also got a new enemy.
Who is Merlina’s stalker? Who will be the new director of Nevermore? Where is Tyler? and What will happen to Laurel? These are some of the questions that a second season of “Wednesday” must answer.
