Netflix has confirmed that it will be renewing popular show “Wednesday” for a second season.
The streaming giant made the announcement on Friday.
“It’s been incredible to create a show that has connected with people across the world,” said showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar in a statement.
“Thrilled to continue Wednesday’s tortuous journey into season two. We can’t wait to dive head first into another season and explore the kooky spooky world of Nevermore. Just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.”
Many of the show’s stars shared their excitement over the news on their social media channels, including Gwendoline Christie who plays Larissa Weems on the show.
“Season 2 is Coming…… @wednesdaynetflix 💣🩸🖤❤️🔥” she captioned an Instagram post.
“Wednesday” is described as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy, where she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”
Since its release on Nov. 23, the debut season starring Jenna Ortega has become Netflix’s third most-popular series of all time, behind only Stranger Thingsseason four and Squid Game.
The show also twice broke the record for most hours viewed in a single week by an English-language TV series.
It’s also been nominated for a couple of Golden Globe Awards, which will air on January 10.
