Tim Burton’s Wednesday, the Addams Family spin-off centred on its dark daughter (Jenna Ortega), has become a new success for Netflix.

Since its debut, Netflix’s Wednesday series has received generally positive reviews from both fans and critics. It currently holds the top spot on the streaming service’s top ten list.

On the list of trending current series on Netflix in India, it is ranked number two.

The show’s creators, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar feel optimistic that their show will get to continue even though they are unsure of Wednesday’s future or whether season 2 will be produced or not.

In a recent press interview, Alfred Gough commented:

“Miles and I are talking amongst ourselves about [what’s next for the series].

“There’s definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses.”

Gough also said that he and Miles Millar have “laid out what a potential season 2 [of Wednesday] could look like” but that their ideas are still very fluid as they are “open to see how people react to the first season”.

When asked about a potential plot for season 2, Miles Millar stated that both producers would want to include the rest of the Addams family in Wednesday’s quest, stating:

“The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path outside the family is important.”

Millar went on to share his ambitions for the show’s direction in season 2. He said:

“We felt like we just touched the surface with those characters and the actors are so amazing in those roles.

“Catherine [Zeta-Jones] is, I think, an iconic Morticia.”

Jenny Ortega also gave her thoughts on what she wants for season 2.

She said: “I kind of want her to be darker.

“I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of a competitiveness.

“Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?’

“I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero.”

It may not have the lowest budget of all time, but it also isn’t a colossal sci-fi or fantasy epic with an overabundance of pricey CGI.

Given Wednesday‘s reasonably excellent ratings from critics and viewers as well as its success on Netflix’s charts for viewing hours, it would seem that Wednesday would have a solid chance for a second season despite not having been announced.
