Wednesday Star Jenna Ortega Opens Up On Season 2 Renewal

It’s Official Netflix Renews Wednesday For Season 2

Just days before the first Friday the 13th and Netflix’s Wednesday lead Jenna Ortega goes online to thank supporters of the Netflix Original series. even brings to light possible future years of the show.

I wonder if they meant to release the official renewal news on Friday, January 13th but because of recent developments, they had to say it sooner. As the Addams girl disclosed in the first episode, she was born on Friday the 13th.

Ortega thanks everyone who made season one possible. She retweeted the original post from the official Twitter account of the streaming giant.

The streaming service posted a clip announcing Season 2 is coming with Ortega reprising the character to voice over Wednesday’s gratitude. In the video, Ms. Addams says:

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been hunted, haunted, …and mimicked millions of times across the internet. It’s been pure torture. Thank you.

The viral background music sped-up version of Lady Gaga’s Bloody Mary follows and the video promises that more misery is coming. Further stating that the global phenomenon will return for season two.

The video ends with a clip of Wednesday from the first season saying:

Honestly, I wish I cared a little more.

Meanwhile, Ortega cares a lot. And comments to her tweet are everything supportive.

Countless times on different platforms, fans would share videos of their favourite scenes from the series. Even share their own video of dancing her prom moves either with the viral music or the actual music in the show.

Undeniably, everyone expected the announcement for Season 2 from Netflix. Indeed, it was just a matter of time.

We have shared the exclusive that the follow-up season is really in the bag. In fact, they are actually in talks for Season 3 already.

Showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar supported this news. Here’s what they had to say on the matter during an interview with Variety:

For us, it’s always looking at the future, and when we sit down to create a show, it’s looking at multiple seasons, ideally. That’s never expected, but that’s the anticipation that hopefully the show is successful.

So you always lay out at least three or four seasons’ worth of potential storylines for the characters. It can evolve and change.

Often, you want to see which characters or cast pop and who you like to write for. So you want to keep it open and organic enough to change it and evolve, but we certainly have a pretty clear runway of what we want to do in future seasons.

As the show features the high school years of Addams’ only daughter, three to four seasons could be at play. However, they can transcend the series coverage to her college years and even her early profession.

Furthermore, the series leaves the door wide open for new characters as well as old ones. Not to mention characters from the original comics of the creator Charles Addams.

Could she be preparing for a career as a psychic detective? Or perhaps pursue her penchant for writing? Maybe even both.

Also, as a detective, she reminds me of Sherlock Holmes when she plays the cello to feel better. Because Sherlock Holmes plays the violin whenever he is deep in thought.

Wednesday has so much potential, and we cannot wait to see what is next.

What do you think would be the possible plots for Wednesday Season 2? Do you share our excitement of the news that Season 2 is coming on Netflix?
