We can be sure that we’ll visit the Addams Family universe in the future even though Netflix hasn’t formally renewed Wednesday for Season 2. It also creates opportunities for Wednesday’s (Jenna Ortega) future now that Nevermore is over. Al Gough and Miles Millar, the show’s creators, have hinted that there may be additional riddles for the lead character to solve in future episodes.
Gough and Millar expressed excitement about continuing to build on Wednesday’s connections with those around her in an interview with The Hollywod Reporter, especially with her mother Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and her friend Enid (Emma Myers). The pair discussed the series’ central themes, and Gough hinted at what they have in store for the future. “We wanna sort of explore and sort of complicate all of those relationships going forward. The school was closed when they left, which gave us the most possibilities for season two, and I think that’s something that we’re excited to explore. “
“For us, the show also is really about this female friendship, with Wednesday and Enid really being at the center of that. The fact that they really connected with audiences, it has been really gratifying. So, we’re excited to explore now that Wednesday’s dipped her toe into the friendship pool, what’s that gonna look like? It’s like, she hugged. That was her big arc for the season, right? So it’s like now, we do that. Then, the other thing that’s really interesting is to continue to explore the Wednesday-Morticia mother-daughter relationship as well, which now that Morticia knows about the power, it has given her sort of an idea of how that’s going to go. How is their relationship going to evolve?” they added.
Wednesday and Enid’s Relation
The idea put out by fans that Wednesday and Enid would eventually have a love relationship was also addressed by the show’s creators. Nothing is off the table, but at the same time, they can’t lose sight of the character’s individuality, and she will only explore her sexuality if it feels natural for the tale, according to Millar’s advice as they discussed it. He said, “As Al said, this idea of sisterhood is key to the show. We’re not gonna discount anything, and, obviously, sometimes characters reveal themselves, which is the fun thing we love about television, that it’s an organic journey. We have a roadmap, and we’d like to have routes along that map that take you in unexpected directions. So, we’re open to everything.”
“We wanna explore that friendship in every way, but we’re not gonna be, this is where you sometimes get misdirected by fans and things like that, so it’s just being really open to see how those characters develop and that friendship. As Al said, that friendship is key to our sort of vision of the show,” he added. It’s only a matter of time before Wednesday receives a Season 2 order after dominating the list of the most watched Netflix shows for four weeks in a row. The narrative will follow the legendary, sardonic figure from her teens into adulthood.
