With rumors swirling on social media, many fans of Netflix’s latest hit are wondering if Percy Hynes White will be returning for Wednesday Season 2.
Currently, reports have been circulating that the actor has been removed from the next season, but those claims might be under question.
Let’s take a closer look at the facts behind the cast of Wednesday Season 2 and the future of Percy Hynes White.
Is Percy Hynes White Returning for Wednesday Season 2?
Percy Hynes White has had a couple of notable roles in his career so far, but none are as popular as his appearance on Netflix’s hit show, Wednesday. After the show premiered in 2022, it was quickly greenlit for a second season.

Many fans assumed that most of the cast would return, including Jenna Ortega, Emma Myers, and Percy Hynes White. However, recent reports indicate that White will not be appearing in Season 2 of Wednesday.
According to an exclusive report from the British tabloid, Daily Mail, Percy Hynes White has been written out of the second season. This news comes from an insider source that is “close to Percy’s family,” who claims that the actor’s removal from Wednesday Season 2 is in response to allegations that arose earlier this year.

In January of 2023, an anonymous user on X (previously Twitter) accused Percy Hynes White of sexual misconduct at a party he hosted. The claims soon went viral, leading to a divisive reaction from fans.
White released a statement in June regarding the allegations, calling them “baseless, harmful claims” that sparked “a campaign of misinformation.”
Netflix hasn’t released a statement on the matter yet, but with the actors and writers strike occurring in Hollywood, casting announcements have likely been put on pause.

It’s also important to consider the authenticity of the original report, as Daily Mail has earned a reputation of being unreliable at times, and was banned as a source by Wikipedia in 2017.
At this time, there have been no official statements confirming whether or not Percy Hynes White will appear on Wednesday Season 2.
The Past and Future of Percy Hynes White
Percy Hynes White was born on October 8, 2001, in the city of St. John’s, the capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
From birth, White was a likely candidate for the world of on-screen entertainment, as both of his parents – Joel and Sherry White – are actors and writers themselves.

White is of English and Irish descent, with brown hair that is often dyed blond.
He appeared in his first film role at 8 years old, when he played the childhood version of protagonist Keith in the Canadian drama, Down to the Dirt. The film was co-written by his mother, Sherry, and based on his father’s novel, which likely helped him earn the role.
Although White continued to appear in small film roles, he gained more popularity in 2017 with his leading role on the superhero television series, The Gifted. From there, he had guest spots in mainstream shows like the 2019 reboot of The Twilight Zone, and eventually Wednesday in 2022.
