Wednesday Season 2 Is Ditching One Of The First Season’s Worst Plotlines

There’s no word yet on when the series will return for season 2, but Ortega says there have already been plenty of chats about what’s to come. “In preparation for a second season, we wanted to get ahead of the curve and make sure that we could start the conversations earlier,” she says at the Variety discussion. And while she may not be revisiting that godforsaken love triangle anytime soon, there are definitely aspects of the new season she’s excited about. “I’m just so curious,” she says. “I want to see the outfits, new characters that are coming in, scripts, and they were gracious enough to let me put the producer hat on.”

Every time Ortega makes headlines for speaking out about aspects of her time on “Wednesday,” whether it’s pushing back against lines that go against Wednesday’s rebellious spirit or getting real about her apparently grueling and emotionally exhausting schedule, there are always responses from social media commenters indicating that she’s ungrateful or out of line. Not only do I think that’s not true, but I think that the conversations she’s started are genuinely heartening to see in an industry that has long since mistreated its young women stars and branded them as difficult for standing up for themselves.

In this case, her vocal feedback made a difference in the best way possible. Fans agreed with it, and apparently so did the team behind the show, as she’s now been given more control over the production moving forward. Season 1 of “Wednesday” might not have been entirely my cup of tea, but with Ortega confidently helping to shape the character, I’m eager to see what’s new at Nevermore in season 2.
