    Jenna Ortega, a name now synonymous with the enigmatic Wednesday Addams, has recently hinted at exciting developments for the anticipated second season of Netflix's hit series, Wednesday. The series, a modern take on the iconic Addams family, skyrocketed to popularity, with its debut in November 2022 marking it as the second most-watched English-language series on Netflix.


    Wednesday not only captivated over 150 million households but also positioned Jenna Ortega as a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. Ortega, balancing her burgeoning career with the release of Scream VI and her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, has been vocal about her dedication to the role. Boldly stating, "I don't think I've ever had to put my foot down more on a set in a way that I had to on Wednesday," Ortega's commitment to her character's authenticity has been unwavering.


    The young star's influence extended beyond her on-screen portrayal. During the filming of the first season, Ortega revealed that she had to change the script several times to ensure it stayed true to Wednesday's character, especially critiquing the love triangle subplot as inconsistent with her character's nature. She emphasized, "Her being in a love triangle made no sense."

    Now, as the series gears up for its second season, Ortega teases fans with the promise of heightened horror elements and a focus on Wednesday's individuality. Shifting away from conventional romantic plots, the new season aims to explore more of Wednesday's adventures at Nevermore Academy, allowing her to fight her own crime and develop independently.

Her protective stance over the character resonates with fans, as she asserts, "You can't lead a story and have no emotional arc."

    As Wednesday returns for its second act, Jenna Ortega stands at the forefront, not just as an actor but as a shaping force behind one of Netflix's most captivating characters.
