Netflix’s Wednesday introduced viewers to a new version of Wednesday Addams — and her story is only getting started.
The series, which premiered in November 2022, explores the iconic character (Jenna Ortega) as she attempts to master her psychic powers at Nevermore Academy while dealing with a killing spree at the hands of a mysterious monster.
Ahead of the show’s debut, Christina Ricci surprised fans when she confirmed her involvement in the show. (The actress rose to stardom after appearing in the ’90s films The Addams Family and Addams Family Values.)
During the first season, it was revealed that Ricci’s character Marilyn Thornhill was actually Laurel Gates. The teacher decided to seek revenge on Nevermore Academy after her entire family died following their own attempts to take down outcasts.
At the time, creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough opened up about how they mapped out the rest of the series. “For us, it’s always looking at the future, and when we sit down to create a show, it’s looking at multiple seasons, ideally,” they explained to Variety.
The pair also addressed the overwhelming support from new and old fans, saying, “That’s never expected, but that’s the anticipation that hopefully the show is successful. So you always lay out at least three or four seasons’ worth of potential storylines for the characters. It can evolve and change. We certainly have a pretty clear runway of what we want to do in future seasons.”
