Wednesday made a bloody splash on Netflix over Thanksgiving 2022. Netflix says it enjoyed the platform’s biggest opening week ever, beating out even Stranger Things. But with Season 1 in the books, what lies in the future for Netflix’s most sullen teen? Will we see more adventures at Nevermore Academy? Here’s everything you need to know about where we left off, and what could come next in Wednesday Season 2.
Is Wednesday renewed for Season 2?
Yes! Netflix officially renewed Wednesday for Season 2 on Friday, January 6. The news comes after several shocking cancellations from the streamer, including 1899 and Midnight Club, so to say we’re relieved may be an understatement.
The announcement came in the form of a short teaser video that recaps some of the plot of Wednesday Season 1. Watch it for yourself below:
What happened at the end of Wednesday Season 1?
Wednesday Season 1 ended with the mystery of the Hyde getting unraveled. Barista Tyler (Hunter Doohan) was revealed to be the treacherous Hyde that was on a murder spree throughout town, but don’t blame everything on him. He was being controlled by Miss Thornhill (Christina Ricci), the sister of Garrett Gates, the boy Gomez was accused of murdering back in his school days.
Wednesday defeated Miss Thornhill and the Hyde, clearing both her father’s name and her own. Unfortunately, Principal Larissa Weems (Gwendoline Christie) and Dr. Valerie Kinbott (Riki Lindhome) were collateral damage, but resurrection can’t be ruled out in a series like this.
What will happen in Wednesday Season 2’s plot?
There are several story threads showrunners Miles Millar and Alfred Gough could tug going forward. Wednesday is currently expelled from Nevermore, but a new principal could easily amend that, which could then lead to a new mystery.
There are two obvious cases our budding detective could tackle. First, there’s the question of what’s going on with siren Bianca, her woo-woo mother, Gabrielle, and “Morning Song,” a group run by a mysterious leader named Gideon. Bianca calls it a cult, and it’s hard to deny that fact. Having siren powers of persuasion certainly makes it easy to start a cult.
Maybe Season 2 will dive into the weird world of supernatural “wellness,” and Wednesday will have to save Jericho from being duped into giving up everything for this strange Gideon.
And then there’s that pesky text Wednesday received when she relented and got a phone. It looks like she’s got a stalker, which could be the lynchpin for a new season of mystery and intrigue.
When will Wednesday Season 2 come out? Is there a release date?
Knowing Netflix’s timeline and penchant for holiday weekend releases, plus the smash success numbers that came from releasing Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a conservative estimate for the Wednesday Season 2 release would be Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2024. It’s still the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but with two years to craft a great season. That’s just an educated guess that could swing earlier or later, but it’s the logical option, and Wednesday is nothing if not logical.
Wednesday Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
