The 1st season of Wandinhaspin-off series of The Addams Family, made its debut on Netflix last Wednesday (23) and, even with less than a week on the air, it is already winning hearts. The work, directed by the iconic Tim Burton (Edward Scissor Hands), was one of the most anticipated of 2022 and has been in the top 10 of Netflix since its launch.
The series, as the name reveals, is focused on Wandinha (Jenna Ortega), daughter of Gomez (Luis Guzmán) and Mortícia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who becomes part of Escola Nunca Mais, a place full of young mystics and , of course, many mysteries, including murders, secret societies and riddles.

Throughout the debut season, however, we see little of the other members of entertainment’s darkest family. Which got us thinking: will we see more of them? According to showrunner Miles Millar, this possibility is very real in a 2nd season of Wandinha🇧🇷
“We feel like we’ve only just scratched the surface with these characters and the cast is so incredible in these roles. Catherine is, I think, an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wandinha and Morticia is also essential to the series, and the idea that Wandinha is trying to carve your own path outside of the family is important,” said the producer in an interview with TV Line.
In this sense, we can expect that Mortícia, Gomez and Feioso, for example, will be fundamental pieces of a possible 2nd season of the Netflix series. However, we will have to wait for confirmation, as Wandinha has not yet had an official renewal, despite all the success.
