After many months, everything has returned to normal. The strikes of writers and actors have ended, and finally, Hollywood has resumed its usual routine. This means, above all, that Netflix is back in the game with its series and movies, giving them priority to provide users with the service they deserve.
Among all its priorities, Netflix was clear that there are two series it must premiere as soon as possible: “Stranger Things” and “Wednesday.” Regarding the former, they are already underway with its fifth and final season, pushing to wrap it up as quickly as possible to avoid waiting until 2025. However, this is not the case for “Wednesday,” which has a much more complicated situation.
No news about Wednesday
Despite Wednesday being Netflix’s second top priority, considering the huge success of the first season, filming won’t start until late April 2024. There are various reasons for this delay, from scheduling conflicts among the cast—Jenna Ortega needing to balance her involvement in the series with other projects like Beetlejuice 2—to the change in filming location, moving from Romania to Ireland for this second set of episodes.
This means, unfortunately, we won’t see more of Wednesday until 2025. While it would have been logical to expect the second season in 2024, the events surrounding strikes have led to this situation, potentially impacting both the series and Netflix in the long run. However, the platform might use this as an opportunity to film multiple seasons back-to-back, allowing us to see the second and third seasons much closer together than the first and the upcoming second season.
