With the production of Wednesday season 2 getting underway this month, we recently learned that veteran actor Steve Buscemi has joined the cast.

Steve Buscemi has joined the cast of Wednesday season 2. Buscemi’s role in the upcoming TV series has not been revealed yet. Nevertheless, we learned from a casting call that took place in January 2024 that the production was searching for an actor to portray a Theater Music Teacher. This character will join the Nevermore staff in season 2.

Buscemi, 66, is best known for starring in multiple movies alongside his long-time friend Adam Sandler, such as Grown Ups, Hotel Transylvania, Mr. Deeds, Big Daddy, and more. He is also known for his role as Mr. Pink in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and his Emmy-nominated role as Enoch “Nucky” Thompson in HBO’s period crime drama Boardwalk Empire.

The details of the second season’s plot are still heavily under wraps. But Jenna Ortega has been vocal about the upcoming season and addressed how it is “leaning” further into the horror genre.

“We’re definitely leaning into a little bit more horror. It’s really, really exciting because, all throughout the show, while Wednesday does need a little bit of an arc, she never really changes and that’s the wonderful thing about her. There are really, really good one-liners, and I think everything’s bigger. It’s a lot more action-packed. Each episode will probably feel a little bit more like a movie, which is nice.”
