Fans of Wednesday, the Netflix series that has recently surpassed 1 billion streams, are already speculating about a potential second season. While the show’s renewal has not yet been confirmed, members of the cast and crew, as well as executives at the streaming platform, have weighed in on the possibility. According to an interview with J-14, members of the VFX team shared their thoughts on which characters they’d like to see more of in a potential second season.
Lon Molnar, copresident of MARZ VFX, expressed an interest in exploring more of the character Thing. “I think it would be fantastic to explore what may have happened to lead him to be severed, possibly,” Molnar said. “I think that’d be – it was an idea that was floating around and it would be fantastic to explore that for sure. But for us, anything with that character front and center, we’re ready to take the helm and help him tell that story. We’re open to anything.”
Producer Casey Sincic also expressed interest in developing the character of Uncle Fester, played by Fred Armisen. “I love Fred Armisen, and it was fun. The work that we did with his character was pretty minor,” Sincic said. “It was the electricity effects that he used, but I would love to see him be a bigger part of the show in Season 2.”
While nothing has been officially announced yet, it’s clear that there is a lot of enthusiasm for a second season of Wednesday. Whether or not it comes to fruition remains to be seen, but it’s exciting to see what the future could hold for this rapidly rising show.
