Will he be in season 2?

Wednesday has not yet been renewed for season 2 by Netflix and there is no confirmation that Galpin would return to the series following the explosive season 1 ending.

In an interview with Variety, showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar said that Galpin was “out there” adding: “That’s what we wanted to convey.”

Millar said: “For us, it’s always looking at the future, and when we sit down to create a show, it’s looking at multiple seasons, ideally. That’s never expected, but that’s the anticipation that hopefully the show is successful.”

He added: “So you always lay out at least three or four seasons’ worth of potential storylines for the characters. It can evolve and change. Often, you want to see which characters or cast pop and who you like to write for. So you want to keep it open and organic enough to change it and evolve, but we certainly have a pretty clear runway of what we want to do in future seasons.”
