Wednesday finally hit Netflix, and the titular character's unexpected bond with the bubbly Enid Sinclair, portrayed by Emma Myers, enthralled fans. The highly-anticipated show based on the iconically morose character Wednesday Addams from the Addams Family is led by rising star Jenna Ortega, with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, Gwendoline Christie, and Fred Armisen appearing in supporting roles. The eight episodes comprising season one, half directed by Tim Burton, were just released to Netflix on November 23, 2022.

Viewers were immediately captivated by Wednesday's experiences at Nevermore Academy, the boarding school for outcasts, where she meets the disarmingly cheerful werewolf Enid while trying to harness her psychic abilities. Fans immediately flooded social media with their appreciation for the surprising friendship formed between Wednesday Addams and Enid Sinclair throughout Wednesday season 1. Many were quick to point out the humorous and charming chemistry between these two opposed friends, both with mystical abilities, with some expressing their hope that the pair's budding bond turns into the series' central romance. Check out some fan reactions below:

Why Fans Love Enid and Wednesday's Friendship

It is no surprise that fans cannot get enough of the duo. Enid's optimistic disposition and sunny nature contrast with Wednesday's humorous yet persistent cynicism, making their friendship a necessary balance on Wednesday. As season 1 takes viewers through Wednesday's experience at Nevermore, their dynamic is a welcome addition that presents mutual challenges and support between two characters whose bond is only strengthened by their stark differences and unique perspectives.

What Could Happen In Wednesday Season 2

While Netflix has yet to confirm Wednesday season 2, the ending of season 1 has set up the possibility for a continuation of Wednesday's story, leaving fans wondering what to expect next. The end of season 1 sees its titular character return to her family for summer break after successfully solving the central mystery at Nevermore Academy. Still, it seems her troubles are not yet over. Leaving fans on a cliffhanger, the season concludes with Wednesday receiving threatening texts from an unknown number revealing surreptitiously captured photos of her, indicating that in her quest for justice, she has earned some enemies of her own.

Though most of Wednesday's cast members are likely to return for a season 2, Larissa Weems almost certainly won't, as the season finale saw her character, Gwendoline Christie's untimely death. It is also unclear whether Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the 1990s Addams Family film, will return as Laurel Gates' storyline was left on a more nebulous note than the other characters. As Netflix typically announces series renewals within the first three months following the first season's release, fans will know soon enough whether they can expect more of the show. If co-creator Alfred Gough's expressed hopes for a season 2 are anything to go off of, the prospect of Wednesday becoming an ongoing series seems promising.
