During an interview with “Wednesday”’s showrunners, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the duo teased that they “have a pretty clear runway of what we want to do in future seasons,” as fans eagerly await and hope for a second season.
Gough also told Empire that there’s “definitely more that you can explore in the world of the Addamses.”
Meanwhile in a separate discussion with TV Line, Millar confirmed that conversations about a follow-up season are underway and, if given the green light, they “definitely want to feature” other members of the family instead of just Wednesday.
