Netflix is now gearing up for the much-awaited Wednesday Season 2. After several casting updates over the weeks, the streamer has released a cast reveal video featuring the iconic disembodied hand Thing. But aside from revealing the new season’s full cast, it also teases that “more torture awaits” as the production officially begins in Ireland.

You can see the video below:

The clip begins with Thing traveling through the hallway while pulling a cart full of scripts. It then throws the scripts to the doors of the new and returning cast members: Joy Sunday as Bianca; Joanna Lumley as Grandmama; Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia; Emma Myers as Enid; Steve Buscemi as Barry Dort; Billie Piper as Capri; and Thandiwe Newton as Dr. Fairburn.

But when he finally reaches the door of Jenna Ortega, who plays the titular character Wednesday, Thing waits for her to come out after snapping its fingers. “Hello, Thing,” she says. “More torture awaits.”

It also gives a glimpse of Wednesday Season 2 Episode 1 title, Here We Woe Again, written by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and directed by Tim Burton. The announcement of the new season’s production then appears, followed by the list of its full cast.

Who are the cast of Wednesday Season 2?

Wednesday Season 2 will see the return of its main cast members, along with new faces that will join the Addams family. Of course, Jenna Ortega will lead the show again as Wednesday, along with her friends Emma Myers as Enid, Joy Sunday as Bianca, Moosa Mostafasa as Eugene, Georgie Farmer as Ajax, and Victor Dorobantu as Thing.

Catherine Zeta-Jones will return as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, and Luyanda Unati Lewis-Nyawo as Deputy Ritchie Santiago. Jamie McShane and Fred Armisen will reprise their guest-starring roles as Sheriff Donovan Galpin and Uncle Fester, respectively.

For new series regulars and guest stars, you can check the list below:

  • Steve Buscemi

  • Billie Piper

  • Evie Templeton

  • Owen Painter

  • Noah Taylor

  • Christopher Lloyd

  • Joanna Lumley

  • Thandiwe Newton

  • Frances O’Connor

  • Haley Joel Osment

  • Heather Matarazzo

  • Joonas Suotamowill

 

Percy Hynes White, who played Xavier Thorpe, isn’t part of the list after news emerged that he had been dropped from the series over the sexual assault allegations made against him on social media. However, it looks like Netflix has made it up by adding the original Addams Family star, Lloyd, who used to play Uncle Fester, to the cast.

 

What is Wednesday Season 2 about?

Wednesday Season 2 will continue the adventure of the super sleuth Wednesday as she will once again investigate the supernatural mysteries happening at Nevermore Academy. As the cast reveal video teases, there will be more torture happening.

“[Wednesday] sticks to her guns, and she’s not out to please anybody,” Ortega told Tudum. “Which, as someone who used to be an immense people pleaser, I really respect.”

 

So far, Netflix has yet to reveal when Wednesday Season 2 will be released. With this big tease, it looks like more updates about the new season will finally begin. And as the series’ world expands with the number of new cast members, more revelations surely await.
