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.

In the teaser, you’ll hear Lady Gaga’s addictive ‘Bloody Mary’ track. After Season 1 aired, fans used and created a viral dance trend on TikTok that spotlighted Wednesday’s iconic dance scene. It blew up and even Lady Gaga joined in the fun.
The teaser also features clips of fans from all around the world showing their love and support for the show. The show broke records and crossed the one billion-hour view mark within its first 28 days. It’s the third show to achieve this milestone alongside Stranger Things Season 4 and Squid Game.
