Here are some of the key plot points from season 1:

- Her attempts to solve the mystery of the Hyde.
- Her growing understanding of her own powers and abilities.

Season 1 of Wednesday was a critical and commercial success. It was praised for its dark humor, its sharp writing, and its performances by the cast, particularly Jenna Ortega as Wednesday.
The show has been renewed for a second season, which is expected to be released in 2024. I’m excited to see what new mysteries Wednesday will solve and what new revelations she will uncover in the next season.
The release date for Wednesday season 2 has not yet been announced. However, we can make an educated guess based on the production schedule for the first season.
The first season of Wednesday was filmed from October 2021 to March 2022, and it was released on Netflix on November 23, 2022. This means that it took about 5 months to film the first season.
If Netflix wants another season and follows the same blueprint, Wednesday would need six months to film and eight months of postproduction, which would leave us looking at an early to mid-2024 release date!
However, there are a few factors that could delay the release of season 2. The ongoing WGA strike and the potential SAG strike may further delay the production and release of Wednesday Season 2.
So, while we can’t say for sure when season 2 will be released, it’s likely that we’ll have to wait until early to mid-2024.
