Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Jenna Ortega, and Isaac Ordonez in Wednesday

Will There Be Another Season of ‘Wednesday’?

Everyone’s favorite odd family is back! There’s been a lot of buzz about Netflix’s Wednesday, and I definitely contributed to that hype. Everyone had high hopes for the Addams Family reboot, especially since it’s been revisited in various TV and movie adaptions. Jenna Ortega’s latest take on the character has been very well-received. Her prom dance has been recreated all over TikTok, and fans can’t get enough of the character. If you don’t know the Addams Family, you have a lot of catching up to do, specifically with Wednesday Addams.

Did Tim Burton make Wednesday?

Tim Burton isn’t the creator of the series—that credit goes to Miles Millar and Alfred Gough. But Burton did direct four episodes of Wednesday, lending his signature playfully macabre style to the Netflix series.

The costuming and set for Wednesday are breathtaking. The shots are deliberate and whimsical—but what else do you expect with Tim Burton behind the scenes? With the number of fashion breakdowns appearing on my social media feed, the show’s aesthetic has won audiences over. How could it not? There’s been a recent resurgence of the pop-punk goth aesthetic (it’s that whole 20-year fashion cycle schtick), and the masses are conforming by adopting counterculture looks. Jokes, these are jokes—kinda.

What to know about Wednesday‘s first season

The ending of season 1 has the potential to branch off with various storylines. As showrunner Miles Millar explained to TVLine, the creators “felt like we just touched the surface with those characters and the actors are so amazing in those roles.” So the writers are ready to explore the characters in new storylines, which may mean good news for viewers!
