Too Much CGI In Wednesday Season 2? Netflix Has Got You Covered!

MOVIE NEWS – New details about Wednesday Season 2 raised CGI steam, but Netflix’s other series are showing how to put that concern to rest quickly.



Jenna Ortega’s comments about what to expect in Season 2 of Wednesday led to concerns about the increase in CGI. However, other TV shows on Netflix have proven that there is no need to worry. After the series’ record-breaking premiere in November 2022, only a few details about Wednesday’s Season 2 cast, story and changes have been revealed.

However, Wednesday Addams actress Jenna Ortega has already hinted at some exciting and potentially worrying things to expect from season two, including increased action.

Jenna Ortega’s new details about season two hint that the series’ next instalment will be “bigger [and] more action-packed.” And the actress and executive producer explained that “every single episode … will be like a movie.” While this means that the scale of the Netflix series will increase significantly in Season 2, the tease about the action came with some scepticism due to one of Season 1’s biggest complaints.


Could the “action-packed” Wednesday Season 2 be worrying based on the reviews of Season 1?


The first season was a massive hit with the audience. In fact, it received praise from critics as well. But it wasn’t flawless. Among the biggest criticisms of the Netflix series was the CGI. Flaws were found in the animation’s contrast with the rest of the series and its unrealistic nature. This was inconsistent with the quality of the other items.

Consequently, it’s understandable that Ortega’s comments that Season 2 will be action-packed have been met with scepticism, as more action seemingly means more CGI.

It’s unlikely that much of the budget was spent on CGI for Hyde or Enid’s werewolf in Season 1 of the show. This may explain why the quality of the effects falls short of what can be expected from such a big Netflix series. If the action CGI for season 2 mirrors the effects of season 1, then there is still cause for concern. But Netflix’s biggest sci-fi series has proven that this problem can be solved.


Stranger Things showed that action-packed series can also work on Netflix


Since Wednesday promises to be the successor to Netflix’s Stranger Things in terms of popular teen-oriented series, the latter also provides a great example of how to increase the scale of the series with each season. Stranger Things was on a much smaller scale in its first season. And the second season successfully integrated even bigger sets. As well as more special effects, CGI, and intense action scenes.

Wednesday’s season seems to be following suit, which is optimistic given that Netflix is using the Stranger Things formula to give The Addams Family spinoff a bigger budget to improve the CGI and action scenes.

With a bigger budget, Netflix should be able to turn the second season’s effects into an underwhelming one. Like Stranger Things’ stunningly CGI-animated monsters like Vecna, the Demogorgons, and the Mind Flayer. Additionally, Ortega hinted that parts of Season 2 are “like a movie.” The quality is expected to reflect this in terms of scale action. Which requires more from the side of effects. Stranger Things has already paved the way for Season 2 on Wednesday to improve on aspects of the first season that still needed work.
