Jenna Ortega, the star of Tim Burton’s TV series, “Wednesday,” revealed on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Fallon that the horror aspect of season 2 would be more prominent than the romantic aspect.
Ortega teased that viewers can expect to see Wednesday fighting her crimes rather than being caught up in romantic situations. The show, which follows the eldest daughter of the Addams family, is currently in the writing phase.
“We just started getting a writers’ room together, and kind of talking about it, And everyone’s [saying], we really want to up kind of the horror aspect a little bit, and then get Wednesday out of the romantic situation, and just let her be her own individual and fight her own crime.”
