  • ‘Wednesday’ is now in production on Season 2.
  • Christopher Lloyd and Billie Piper are among the new cast additions.
  • The likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman are now series regulars.

With such a big reaction to ‘Addams Family’ spin-off dramedy ‘Wednesday’s first season, you can imagine Netflix’s frustration on not being able to strike while the pop cultural iron is at its hottest, with the writers and actors’ strikes putting paid to a potential 2023 shoot.

But, following a location switch to Ireland, the show has finally gotten back into the swing of things, and cameras are now rolling on Season 2, as a fun video featuring disembodied hand Thing delivering scripts reveals…

And the start of production is not the only piece of news to emerge from the show today, as, following on from word of Steve Buscemi joining the cast, a slew of actor announcements was revealed by the streaming service.

The show has announced a host of new regulars, who join Buscemi in that cast strata.

Billie Piper, Evie Templeton, Owen Painter and Noah Taylor are all aboard.

And then we have the new guest stars, including the exciting likes of Christopher Lloyd, who has his own ‘Addams Family’ connection, having played Uncle Fester in the two ‘Addams’ movies. But with Fred Armisen already established as Fester in ‘Wednesday’, we’ll have to wait and see who he’s playing.

Elsewhere, Joanna Lumley, Thandiwe Newton, Frances O’Connor, Haley Joel Osment and Heather Matarazzo are all aboard, along with Joonas Suotamo (whose face you may not be as familiar with, since he spends most of his time wearing a Wookiee costume for ‘Star Wars’ shows and movies.

Here’s what ‘Wednesday’ show-runners Al Gough and Miles Millar said about the new cast:

“We are thrilled that the entire Addams family will be enrolling in Nevermore Academy this season along with a dream cast of icons and new faces.”

Tim Burton will be back as the main director for the new season alongside Paco Cabezas and Angela Robins.

When will ‘Wednesday’ Season 2 be on Netflix?

The streaming service has yet to reveal when the show will return to its servers, but we’re guessing as soon as (in)humanely possible, given that ‘Wednesday’ is the Most Popular English TV series on Netflix with 252.10 Million Season 1 views.
