Wednesday’s Netflix original series was a spin-off of the horror flick The Addams Family based on the Wednesday Addams character written by Charles Addams. The series attracted a lot of respect and attention from the audience, and everyone loved Jenna Ortega’s performance as the funny and cold Wednesday. After the huge success of the show, it has been renewed for a second season.

Although shooting for the second season is still underway, one of the cast members has left the show and may never return to her role. Will Wednesday as a whole suffer from that? Well, scroll on to get a scoop of the same.

Even under the production difficulties due to the ongoing Hollywood strike, Wednesday was halfway through the filming of the second season. Although Jenna Ortega will be seen reprising her role as Wednesday, the series was supposed to introduce another character, Tamara Novak, Wednesday’s dorm mom. But it seems that this could be a little problematic as the actress Tora Birch, who was going to play the character, quit the show halfway through the shooting.

Before finishing her scenes, Thora Birch left the show halfway through. In an interview with Deadline, a representative for MGM, which produces the series, said Wednesday, “Tora has returned to the States to deal with a personal matter and will not be returning to the production.”

According to media reports, Tora had to go back to attend to an illness in her family. Although she had completed ‘most’ of her scene, she was unable to finish it. Now, it is not clear if she will appear in the series or if another actress will replace her. Anyway, to complete the character’s timeline in the series, the makers would need another star.

Apart from Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán will be seen reprising their Morticia and Gomez Addams characters, respectively, in the second season of the series on Wednesday. In the first season, along with the Addams, Gwendoline Christie, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Emma Myers, and others were also seen in central roles.

Well, are you excited to watch Wednesday binge season 2?
