‘Wednesday’ Season 2 Could Include More Of The Addams Family As Showrunner Says, “We Just Touched The Surface”

Wednesday is a new take on The Addams Family, the classic cartoon strip created by Charles Addams. The Netflix series focuses on the titular character played by Jenna Ortega with her family only appearing sprinkled throughout the season.

However, co-showrunner Miles Millar says that Wednesday’s family, which includes Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia and Luis Guzmán as Gomez, could be featured more in a second season.

“We felt like we just touched the surface with those characters and the actors are so amazing in those roles,” Millar told TV Line in an interview. “Catherine is, I think, an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path outside the family is important.”

Although Wednesday has not been renewed by Netflix for a new season, Millar says that they “definitely want to feature the family as we did this season in a couple of episodes if we were to get a second season.”

Ortega is receiving praise for her portrayal of Wednesday Addams, a character that her costar Christina Ricci played in 1991’s The Addams Family and the 1993 sequel Addams Family Values. Even though they both shared a set, Ortega said in an interview that she didn’t ask Ricci for advice because she didn’t want to “rip her off.”

“I think when she was on set, neither one of us said Wednesday once to each other,” Ortega told MTV News. “I don’t think she wanted to get in the way of my performance and feel like she was overbearing. And then I felt like I didn’t want to pull up something that she did 30 years ago, for one, the sake of my own benefit, but two, I didn’t want to rip her off. And I didn’t want to be too much like her.”

All episodes of Wednesday Season 1 are now available on Netflix.

Jenna Ortega Felt Like She Had a Panic Attack Meeting Christina Ricci

Back in the early ’90s, Christina Ricci famously brought Wednesday Addams to life for two The Addams Family movies, not only cementing the impact of the creepy and kooky daughter, but also kickstarting Ricci’s career. Jenna Ortega is stepping into the shoes of the character for the upcoming Netflix TV series Wednesday, with Ortega recalling the experience of meeting Ricci, claiming that she nearly had a panic attack over the experience. Rather than this merely being a meeting between two performers, the encounter unfolded due to Ricci having a role in the project, with her involvement seemingly signaling a welcome passing of the torch. Wednesday premieres on Netflix on November 23rd.

“I felt like I was genuinely having a panic attack when I was told,” Ortega revealed to Empire Magazine. “I was terrified. She’s a really cool lady. I was fine meeting her, but the first time we did a scene together and she had to see me done up the way she was done up 30 years ago, it was nerve-racking.”

The series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.

Ortega went on to detail the challenges of taking on the role, as she wanted to honor the character yet not be doing an imitation of Ricci’s take on the figure.

“It’s really important to me that I wasn’t ripping anyone off,” the actor admitted. “Christina Ricci’s performance is flawlessly done. It’s pitch-perfect and I wouldn’t change anything about it, which is another reason it was hard for me to do this job.”

Luckily, the nature of the story meant that audiences would be seeing Wednesday at a different age than we’ve seen in the past.

“We’ve never seen Wednesday as a teenage girl,” Ortega clarified. “When you get older and you say these sarcastic, bitchy one-liners, it can come off less charming and more rude or obnoxious. That was something I was really wary of.”

Wednesday will premiere on Netflix on November 23rd.
