Although Netflix’s Wednesday came out in late November, the show and its star, Jenna Ortega, are still receiving plenty of hype and rumors are even swirling that Ortega may have a new role lined up for her as executive producer in Wednesday season 2. Jenna Ortega is a 20-year-old actor who has already had a decade-long career spanning from Disney Channel to the Scream franchise. Ortega’s latest role as Wednesday Addams astounded audiences because of her commitment to character and unique acting choices a la the iconic Wednesday dance from Wednesday season 1, episode 4.
Jenna Ortega As Executive Producer Could Change Wednesday For The Better
Wednesday Season 2 Could Become More Gory (Thanks To Ortega)
In the most recent years of her career, Jenna Ortega has definitely been drawn to the horror genre, and her experience on horror sets, along with her personal love of the genre, definitely gives her some expertise. Therefore, it could be likely that if Ortega becomes a Wednesday executive producer, the series could become scarier and more adult. Although Wednesday already has creepy elements, Ortega could give it some more intense scenes to balance out the classic Addams family campiness. This could even give the show more of a sense of maturity and higher stakes.
