Jenna Ortega: ‘Wednesday’ Will Stress More Horror In Season 2

by Thomas Tuna

More creepy than kooky?

Wednesday–the hit Netflix series based on the classic ’60s The Addams Family TV series–is expected to start shooting its second season before the end of the year, and star Jenna Ortega this week teased the content of the next chapter.

Ortega–during a chat with Variety–said Season 2 would concentrate more on the show’s horror elements, and shy away from romantic interests–such as the love triangle involving Tyler Galpin (Hunter Doohan) and Xavier Thorpe (Percy Hynes White).

“We’ve decided we want to lean into the horror aspects of the show a little bit more,” Ortega said. “Because it is so lighthearted–and a show like this, with vampires and werewolves–you don’t want to take yourself too seriously. And we’re ditching any romantic interest for Wednesday–which is really great.”

Wednesday–led by executive producer and director Tim Burton and showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar–has so far followed the Addams teenager at Nevermore Academy, as she masters her newfound psychic ability and solves a 25-year-old supernatural mystery.

Joining Ortega in the cast for Season 1 are Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, George Burcea as Lurch, Victor Dorobantu as the ever-handy Thing and Christina Ricci as Marilyn Thornhill.
