Thandiwe Newton Cast In Wednesday Season 2 - Report

Westworld's Thandiwe Newton has reportedly joined the cast of Wednesday Season 2.

There's another new face coming to Nevermore Academy. Variety is reporting that Thandiwe Newton has signed on to appear in Wednesday Season 2. No details were included about Newton's character, who could be a friend or foe to Jenna Ortega's Wednesday Addams.

Newton is an Emmy-winner for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for her role as Maeve Millay on HBO's Westworld. Her other television credits include Rogue, The Slap, Big Mouth, and Human Resources. Newton has also had starring or co-starring roles in Mission: Impossible 2, Crash, The Chronicles of Riddick, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

So far, only two of the new cast members for Wednesday Season 2 have reportedly been revealed. Earlier this month, Variety also broke the story that Steve Buscemi was joining the cast, potentially as the new principal of Nevermore Academy. The previous principal, Larissa Weems (Gwendoline Christie), was murdered in the first season finale.

Story details for Wednesday Season 2 have yet to be revealed, but filming is expected to begin later this month in Ireland. Netflix hasn't set a date for Wednesday Season 2, but a 2025 release seems likely.
