Netflix's Wednesday Season 2 Adds Steve Buscemi To Cast

Veteran film and TV actor Steve Buscemi may have a big role to play in the upcoming second season of Wednesday.

Wednesday's Season 1 finale left an opening at Nevermore Academy, and it looks like the job has now been filled. Variety is reporting that veteran actor Steve Buscemi has joined the cast of Wednesday Season 2. While specific details about Buscemi's character weren't released, Variety's sources indicate that he will be playing the new principal of Nevermore. Since his character's predecessor, Larissa Weems (Gwendoline Christie), had powers, it stands to reason that the new principal will as well.

Buscemi has extensive experience in both film and television roles. Some of his most memorable movies include Fargo, The Big Lebowski, Con Air, Miller's Crossing, and a leading role in Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs. On TV, Buscemei headlined HBO's Prohibition drama Boardwalk Empire for five seasons in addition to his stints on The Sopranos and Miracle Workers. Buscemi has also guest starred in 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Most of the cast of Wednesday Season 1 will return for the new season, including Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams. In a nod to her increased star power since the first season, Ortega is now a producer of the series as well. Ortega is also starring in Wednesday director Tim Burton's upcoming sequel, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice.

Wednesday Season 2 is expected to begin filming in Ireland later this month. However, Netflix hasn't set a premiere date for the new season yet.
