In total, there are six movies belonging to The Addams Family franchise and the best way to watch them all is in order of their release, since nearly all of the projects feature a new cast.

Wednesday Season 2

Wednesday has yet to be renewed for a second season by Netflix and the show’s green light will only come if the first season has been popular enough. The streaming platform will be giving the show a fair amount of time on air before making a call.

However, there is room for the show to grow thanks to the promise of another mystery during Season 1’s ending and the show’s billing outwith the confines of a miniseries.

In an interview with Screen Rant, co-creator Alfred Gough teased the possibility of more in Season 2 and said he and co-creator Miles Millar were “talking”:

“Miles (Millar, his fellow creator) and I are talking amongst ourselves about it. There’s definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses.”

Since Season 1 took two full years to produce, from announcement to release, it’s fair to assume that Season 2 would likely debut in late 2024.
