‘Wednesday’ Season 2 Starts Filming With New Cast Members Added. While some members of the cast have left, we now know that some have been added to the cast.

Leaving the Netflix show are Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, and Naomi J Ogawa. We have seen that Jamie McShane may reprise his role in a guest capacity but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Joining the already star studded cast are Steve Buscemi (The Big Lebowski, Boardwalk Empire), Billie Piper (Scoop, I Hate Suzie), Evie Templeton (Return to Silent Hill, Lord of Misrule), Owen Painter (Tiny Beautiful Things, The Handmaid’s Tale), and Noah Taylor (Law & Order: Organized Crime, Park Avenue).

There will also be some new guest stars: Addams Family actor Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Lumley (Fool Me Once, Absolutely Fabulous), Thandiwe Newton (Westworld, Crash), Frances O’Connor (The Missing, The Twelve), Haley Joel Osment (The Kominsky Method, Somebody I Used to Know), Heather Matarazzo (The Princess Diaries, Scream), and Joonas Suotamowill all appear.

You can spot some of these newcomers’ character names in the Thing-led video, above:

Steve Buscemi as Barry Dort
Billie Piper as Capri
Thandiwe Newton as Dr. Fairburn

In this home, we are thrilled to hear some of the additions. Billie Piper is a family favorite for her role as Rose Tyler in the Doctor Who universe. Haley Joel Osment from his incredible turns in movies to our beloved Sora in Kingdom Hearts. Christopher Lloyd, Doc Brown himself. Less we forget his incredible performances in Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Taxi.

Jenna Ortega will lead Wednesday Season 2 as part-time detective, part-time mystery author, and full-time outcast; she’s also set to executive produce. Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair), Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay), Moosa Mostafa (Eugene), Georgie Farmer (Ajax), and Victor Dorobantu (Thing) will return alongside Ortega.

Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia Addams), Luis Guzmán (Gomez Addams), Isaac Ordonez (Pugsley Addams), Luyanda Unati Lewis-Nyawo (Deputy Ritchie Santiago) have all become series regulars. Jamie McShane (Sheriff Donovan Galpin) and Fred Armisen (Uncle Fester) will also return in guest starring roles. 

As for now, that is what we know of the cast. We do know that filming started today in Ireland, as Jenna Ortega posted on her Instagram. We can’t wait to see what they bring us in Season 2.
