Netflix announced today that Wednesday has been renewed for Season 2. Coming six weeks after the release of its freshman run, the pickup is no surprise, as the show has become a breakout hit for the streaming service.

Within a month of its premiere, Wednesday reached over a billion total hours viewed. It's only the third original series on the streaming service to reach that mark. Critical reception has also been positive, and it recently received two Golden Globe nominations in the 'Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy' and 'Best Actress - Television Series Musical or Comedy' categories.

The series follows the life of teenager Wednesday Addams, a student at Nevermore Academy, where she is honing her emerging psychic ability. While doing her best to navigate new and tangled relationships at school, she is also trying to thwart a monstrous killing spree terrorizing the local town as well as solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago.
