Let’s “dance, dance, dance” because Netflix has announced that Wednesday Season 2 is in the works!

Before Netflix released the news, fans were worried that Wednesday would move to a different streaming platform because Amazon had acquired Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), which owned The Addams Family franchise. Rumours revolved around Season 2 being released on Amazon Prime, but all that was put to rest after Netflix reassured fans that Season 2 is coming soon.
