Director of the original film, Greg Tiernan, teased to ComicBook.com what he hoped to accomplish with the sequel.
"With any sequel like that you've got to move the characters forward and try and explore some new territory with them," Tiernan shared. "So you know there's no point in just regurgitating the same stuff no matter how funny it might be. So obviously we can't say too much about it, but that's something that we will be doing. We laid the groundwork with this movie, especially for people who weren't familiar with the Addams Family."
He added, "So we did that, we feel successfully, in the current movie. And so the next step is to know well, how can we go bigger or better with these characters? So that's basically what we'll do soon, is develop and trace."
The Addams Family 2 is currently set to hit theaters on October 8, 2021.
