Stranger Things, Virgin River…many series will not return to our screens before 2025. This is also the case of Wednesday, whose season 2 is already eagerly awaited by fans. It must be said that the series with Jenna Ortega broke records when its season 1 was released in November 2022. It remains today the most viewed English-speaking series in the history of Netflix. Recently, Jenna Ortega gave positive news from filming and revealed what awaits her character Wednesday Addams in this sequel.

An actor of Wednesday fired for season 2?

If you have the impression that a name is missing, that’s normal because that is the case. It can be noted that Percy Hynes-White, who played Xavier Thorpe, is not included in this list. It therefore seems that he was excluded from the cast of season 2 of Wednesday. In early 2023, the actor was accused of sexual assault dating back several years on social networks. Six months after these accusations, the actor reacted in a story on Instagram. “The rumors are false. I cannot accept being portrayed as fanatical or criminally negligent when it comes to people’s safety.“, he declared. For the moment, the production of the series has not commented on this matter but it seems that it has chosen to do without the services of the actor. It remains to be seen how the Xavier’s absence will be explained in the plot of this season 2.
