The production topic came up next, with Fanning confirming Ortega’s status as a producer on the upcoming second season of Wednesday. Ortega admitted that “it was a natural progression” because she cared deeply about faithfully portraying Wednesday Addams.

“This is my first time. It was a natural progression. With a character like Wednesday, who is so beloved, I didn’t want to get her wrong. So I tried to have as many conversations as possible with the writers. We’d decide what works and what doesn’t. In preparation for a second season, we wanted to make sure that we could start the conversations earlier. I’m just so curious: I want to see the outfits, new characters, scripts. It’s your first time producing a television series as well.”

As Jenna Ortega and Elle Fanning reflected on their own experiences with social media, the conversation shifted to a more introspective tone. Ortega revealed that the pressure to gain fans and promote shows permeated many aspects of the casting process, much to her dismay.

Ortega is set to make a significant impact and leave a lasting mark on the entertainment industry thanks to her talents and determination always to be herself. Fans of Wednesday are getting antsy for the second season because she has confirmed the show will take a “bolder, more dark” turn.

“It’s still coming together, but we’ve decided we want to lean into the horror more. We’re ditching any romantic love interest, which is really great. We’re going to get bolder, more dark. I’ve never had to do a serious period piece before. Was there anything you have to do to make sure things are accurate?”

Thanks to her authenticity, passion, and determination, Ortega is poised to make a significant impact and cement her place in the industry.
