They’re creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky…and they’re back for another round of screams! MGM’s wacky animated hit The Addams Family is getting a sequel set to release next year! So mark your calendars, the expected release date for the new installment is October 8, 2021, just in time for spooky season… ba da da da *snap* *snap*!
In this all-new sequel, The Addams family gets tangled up in several wild adventures as they run into all sorts of unsuspecting characters. Though they face many unexpected obstacles, the Addams family remains true to themselves, bringing their iconic spookiness and kookiness wherever they go.
The Addams Family sequel has magnified its already stellar cast with the additions of Bill Hader as the all-new character “Cyrus,” and Javon “Wanna” Walton taking on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, “Pugsley.” Hader and Walton will join returning Addams Family film stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma), and Snoop Dogg (It). Greg Tiernan has also returned to direct the sequel.
“The success of last year’s animated film was proof of the enduring legacy of The Addams Family and its ability to transcend popular culture. This second film will be every bit as fun as the original. We are thrilled to welcome Bill Hader and Javon Walton, and to welcome back our incredible original cast for this exciting next chapter in the Addams’s journey.” said director Greg Tiernan.
