Jenna Ortega Says Season 2 Of Netflix's Wednesday Is Leaning Into Horror

Don't expect any love triangles in Season 2.


Jenna Ortega, star of Netflix Wednesday, is taking a producing role for Season 2, and she's already revealed what fans can expect going forward.

In an interview with Variety, she said they "want to lean into the horror aspect of the show a little bit more. Because it is so lighthearted, and a show like this with vampires and werewolves and superpowers, you don't want to take yourself too seriously."

Ortega explained that they plan on "ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great." Throughout Season 1, a good portion of the show focused on a love triangle between Wednesday, Tyler (Hunter Doohan), and Xavier (Percy Hynes White).

Even though many ideas have been tossed around for Season 2, Ortega has been "very hands on" and wants to know what's happening. To further understand the character, Ortega has had "as many conversations as possible" with the writers and Tim Burton, and because of this, everything was "very collaborative." To prepare for the upcoming season, Ortega wanted to get "ahead of the curve" and see things such as the outfits, new characters being introduced, and even the script.
