A production update for Wednesday season 2 has reportedly revealed when new episodes will begin filming. The show, which is a modernized take on the characters from the multimedia franchise The Addams Family, stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams. After premiering on Netflix in November 2022, the show became a smash hit, earning the most viewing hours in a single week for any single Netflix show with 341 million, beating the previous record set by Stranger Things season 4 part 1. In the wake of its success, the show was renewed for season 2 the following January.


A new listing on the Film & Television Industry Alliance online Production List seems to offer an update on the upcoming Wednesday season 2. The new episodes of the show are reportedly set to begin shooting in London on April 30. It remains to be seen if this production start date is officially confirmed by Netflix or anyone associated with the show.


When Will Wednesday Season 2 Premiere?

There Will Still Be A Long Wait For New Wednesday Episodes

Even if this new listing turns out to be incorrect, it does seem as though the Wednesday cast will reassemble for more episodes soon. However, even if the show begins shooting this spring, it will likely be quite some time before season 2 premieres on Netflix, as the platform drops entire seasons at once, meaning that their shows typically need an extended post-production period before they drop, especially if they require any sort of special effects. Below, see how the reported production dates and the eventual premiere date compare for season 1 and other similar supernatural teen dramas on Netflix:

So far, there has only been one season of Wednesday, which makes it difficult to assess the average production and post-production time for the show. However, season 1 took roughly six months to shoot and premiered on the streaming service eight months after principal photography wrapped. As Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 1 part 1 and Fate: the Winx Saga season 1 prove, the timeline can sometimes be truncated or extended, but the average span of time between production kickoff and a supernatural teen show’s Netflix premiere nevertheless does seem to be about 14 months.


Ultimately, even if the season progresses at a rapid clip, it is looking like it will be quite some time before the show is able to follow up on the Wednesday season 1 ending. If season 2 follows the same timeline as season 1, which seems entirely probable, it won’t premiere on the platform until at least July 2025. This would mean the show had a hiatus between seasons of nearly three full years.
