The news of the renewal comes after a week in which rumors indicated that the second season of the series would be broadcast on Prime Video, due to Amazon’s purchase of MGM, the company responsible for producing Wandinha. In an interview with Tudum.com, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, producers and showrunners, said they were excited about the renewal of the series. “We can’t wait to dive headfirst into a new season and further explore the universe of Escola Nunca Mais. We just have to make sure that Wandinha hasn’t emptied the pool,” they joke in the spot.
In the video, Wandinha says it was torture to be chased, stalked and imitated by thousands of people on the internet, referring to the TikTok dance challenge. For this, she thanks her fans. At the end of the few seconds of images, the text indicates that the second season will be streaming soon.
In an interview with TV Line, showrunners Gough and Millar said that, in this second season, they plan to show more of the girl’s relationship with other characters, especially with her mother, Morticia Addams (Cathrine Zeta-Jones). During the interview, they said they intend to keep the focus on Wandinha, but that they feel they have only scratched the surface in relation to the other characters in the series. Speaking of this, they said “we have incredible characters and actors. Catherine, I think, is an iconic Morticia. The relationship between her and Wandinha is very important to the series, as is the idea that the girl is trying to forge the own way.”.
For the producers, Wandinha is about a girl who learns to see shades of gray in a black and white world. The expectation is that, during the second season, the inflexible and not tolerant worldview will be challenged as the young woman grows and matures. For this it will be essential to build and develop relationships.
