MGM’s The Addams Family sequel has added Bill Hader and Javon "Wanna' Walton to its voice cast.

Hader will lend his voice to the new character Cyrus, and Walton takes on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, Pugsley. Finn Wolfhard, at 18 years of age, played Pugsley in the 2019 The Addams Family movie, but has aged out of the role.

The CG-animated family pic has already announced a voice cast led by Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg and Bette Midler. Director Greg Tiernan has also returned for the sequel, which will be released in theaters Oct. 8, 2021 under MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.

"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," director Tiernan said in a statement.

The Addams Family 2 is produced by Gail Berman, Conrad Vernon, Danielle Sterling and Alison O’Brien. Executive Producers are Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange and Andrew Mittman. Laura Brousseau and Kevin Pavlovic will serve as co-directors alongside Tiernan.

Hader most recently starred in It Chapter Two, the sequel to the 2017 horror film, It.
Walton made his acting debut as Ashtray in HBO’s Euphoria, and will return for the second season.
