With Netflix confirming at the start of the year that their hugely successful Wednesday Addams series would be returning for season two, lead star Jenna Ortega has hinted at what she and the writers would like to see more of.

In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon promoting the release of Scream VI, Jenna says the team are starting to plot how things are going to go for the follow-up to the record-breaking Wednesday, teasing excitedly that, “Everyone’s been really cool.

Announcing season two, co-showrunners Miles Millar and Alfred Gough previously told Tudum: “We can’t wait to dive headfirst into another season and explore the kooky, spooky world of Nevermore. We just need to make sure Wednesday hasn’t emptied the pool first.

“It’s been incredible to create a show that’s connected with people across the world,” they added. “We’re thrilled to continue Wednesday’s torturous journey into Season 2.”
