Announced yesterday, MGM is bringing back The Addams Family for a sequel to last year’s animated film, which is scheduled to be released during next year’s Halloween season.
In the new movie, The Addams get tangled up in wacky adventures and find themselves involved in hilarious run-ins with all sorts of unsuspecting characters. Always staying true to themselves, the family brings their iconic spookiness and kookiness wherever they go.
The sequel to MGM’s 2019 box-office smash hit has rounded out its stellar voice cast with the additions of Bill Hader as all-new character “Cyrus,” and Javon “Wanna” Walton taking on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, “Pugsley.” Hader and Walton 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).
Director Greg Tiernan has also returned for The Addams Family 2, which will be released in theaters October 8, 2021 via MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.
Said Tiernan: “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.”
