The second season of the popular series “Wednesday” is set to embrace a more horror-centric approach, as revealed by the show’s star, Jenna Ortega. In a conversation with Laverne Cox for E! on the Emmys red carpet, Ortega shared intriguing details about the upcoming season, indicating a shift towards a darker and more action-packed narrative.
Ortega, who has received the scripts for the new season, expressed excitement about the series’ evolution. She noted that the show would delve deeper into horror elements, a departure from its already darkly comedic and mysterious tone. This shift aligns well with the character of Wednesday Addams, whom Ortega praised for her consistency and unique charm. The character’s unchanging nature amidst the evolving storyline appears to be a central theme in the upcoming season.
Furthermore, Ortega hinted at more robust storytelling, with enhanced action sequences and impactful one-liners. She believes that each episode in the new season will offer a cinematic experience, elevating the show’s narrative and visual appeal. This approach suggests a more immersive and engaging experience for the audience, possibly bringing a fresh perspective to the beloved character and her eerie adventures.
The production for season two is set to commence in April, continuing the story that has captivated viewers with its blend of mystery, family dynamics, and the supernatural. Adding to the excitement, a spin-off series is also in early development, with Fred Armisen set to star as Uncle Fester. This expansion follows his character’s appearance in the first season and suggests a growing universe around the enigmatic Wednesday Addams and her peculiar family.
With these developments, fans of “Wednesday” can anticipate a season filled with heightened suspense, more intense action, and a deeper dive into the horror genre, all while maintaining the show’s unique charm and wit.
