The Netflix series "Wednesday", a kind of remake of the "Addams Family", is on everyone's lips. The show about the likeable leading actress Jenna Ortega (20) is currently the second most popular English-language series on the streaming service – only the fourth season of "Stranger Things" has been more successful so far. In an interview with "The Hollywood Reporter", the creators Al Gough (55) and Miles Millar (55) now spoke about their ideas for a second season.
The series focuses on the misfit Wednesday, who makes friends at Nevermore Academy, a school for freaks and monsters. Gough and Millar plan to continue and "complicate" the relationships between Wednesday, Enid (Emma Myers, 20), Xavier (Percy Hynes White, 21) and Bianca (Joy Sunday, 27) in season two. "For us, this show is about friendship, with Wednesday and Enid at the heart of it all. It was really gratifying to see them resonate with audiences," says Gough.
Indeed, the dynamic between the two dissimilar characters Wednesday and Enid became the highlight of the series. Teen-Goth Wednesday and the always cheerful Enid couldn't be more different - yet they become good friends over the course of the series. Above all, Enid is always by Wednesday's side and supports her wherever she can.
On the other hand, the producers would also like to go deeper into Wednesday's relationship with her mother, Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones, 53). "How will their relationship develop?" Gough already asks himself.
