Jenna Ortega’s performance in Netflix’s Wednesday has garnered universal praise from reviewers and audiences alike, with some hailing it as the best version of the show yet. However, with the sequel of the show currently in the works, Ortega has recently revealed that there’ll be less focus on romance in season two.
Netflix announced the renewal of the series for a second season in February after the first season became a massive hit. With that being said, Ortega appeared in the Thursday night episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” where she gave fans a preview of what to anticipate when Wednesday Addams makes a comeback.
“I think we just started getting a writers’ room together and kind of talking about it, and everyone’s being really cool.”
Ortega continued by asserting that the new season of the show would be scarier and less focused on romance. Ortega stated that the team wants to allow her character to stand on her own and fight crime.
“I think we want to up kind of the horror aspect a little bit, and then get Wednesday out of the romantic situation and just let her be her own individual and fight her own crime.”
Ortega’s recent statements come after her criticism of the season one love triangle Wednesday was involved in. In the previous season, Wednesday struggled with the decision of whether to pursue a relationship with barista Tyler (Hunter Doohan) or fellow Nevermore student Xavier (Percy Hynes White).
Fortunately for Ortega, that love triangle was resolved by the end of season one, and it appears that the writers won’t be introducing a new love interest for the morbid “Addams Family” prodigy when she returns to Nevermore. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get the latest updates.
