After dropping on Netflix just last week, the streamer’s series Wednesday is quickly becoming their next big hit. With laugh-out-loud scenes from actors like leading lady Jenna Ortega and a mystery at the center of it all, fans are ready to grab their pitchforks and make sure the series is renewed for a second season. Many of those pushing for a continuation in Wednesday’s story have taken to Twitter to share their strong stance on the matter, with several praising the production for its latest take on the spooky and kooky Addams Family.

One user said that “every scene was intriguing,” while another gave two thumbs up to not only the cast, but also those working behind the scenes such as writers, set designers, and costumers. Yet another Wednesday fan promised a fate straight from the mouth of the show’s titular character should Netflix not renew, saying that they “will wreak havoc so catastrophic [Netflix] will be doomed to regret it.” With all the props and threats, the streamer may want to get moving on that second season.

With some of the biggest names in Hollywood working on Wednesday, it’s no surprise why fans are loving the new take on everyone’s darkly comedic family and their beloved daughter. Along with Jenna Ortega, who’s begun to rise to prominence over the last few years with credits in shows including You and feature-length productions like The Fallout and Scream, the series also stars Academy Award-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Fred Armisen, Gwendoline Christie, and Christina Ricci, who starred in the early ‘90s Addams Family films as the morbid daughter. For many, one of the major draws to Wednesday was the involvement of Tim Burton as both the director and executive producer. 

Wednesday sees the titular character shipping off for Nevermore Academy, a school for exiled teens who have a hard time fitting in with “normal” students at other high schools. After making waves with fellow students, and not in a good way, Wednesday begins to discover that she has psychic abilities that she begins to put to good use in aiding local authorities in solving a murder mystery plaguing the town. With the first season ending on a major cliffhanger, it would be a tragedy for Netflix to not wrap things up on their latest hit series. 

Currently, the production sits on Rotten Tomatoes with an 88% audience score, solidifying Wednesday as a hit with viewers. After adapting the Charles Addams comics into the classic 1964 television show, The Addams Family franchise has carried on over several decades. Its most successful on-screen telling came with the Barry Sonnenfeld-helmed productions: 1991’s The Addams Family and 1993’s The Addams Family Values

With the outpouring of love, it seems almost more than likely that Wednesday will be renewed for a second season. Netflix has had some major wins in the way of original projects as of late with the last big ratings hit being Ryan Murphy’s Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. As for now, we’ll just need to keep our eyes peeled (and not blink) for any news surrounding the possible return of Wednesday.
