The upcoming season of Wednesday will see Jenna Ortega reprising her role as the titular Addams Family scion navigating her teenage years at the sinister school. The first season, which debuted in November 2022, ended with Wednesday successfully solving a series of grisly murders while also thwarting an attempt to destroy Nevermore and its students.
