Wednesday, a brand-new Netflix TV series based on The Addams Family’s fictional world, has been a topic of hot debate since its debut. Jenna Ortega’s eight episodes enthrall viewers so thoroughly that they helped the show smash its record for first-day views. With over a 341Million hours viewed, Wednesday became the biggest debut for an English-language series on Netflix, leaving behind Stranger Things Season 4.
This success owes a great deal to the acting of the performers, especially the protagonist, Jenna Ortega, who was able to make every Wednesday flawless. You could have even noticed that Ortega doesn’t blink when she’s acting. Netflix provided some information about her work because of this.
Why Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Never Blinks Her Eyes
After trying one take where she didn’t blink, Tim Burton was so enamored with the result that he told Jenna Ortega not to blink anymore when playing Wednesday. So she didn’t.

The program could be renewed as a result of its enormous success. Al Gough and Miles Millar, the show’s creators, are already planning season two. In an interview with TV Line, the latter recently revealed that he would like to give more screen time to the other Addams Family members in the upcoming episodes. Especially Gomez and Morticia, played by Luis Guzmán and Catherine Zeta-Jones, were only briefly seen in the first season.
We’ve just scratched the surface with those characters, and the actors are excellent in those roles. Catherine is an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her path outside the family is crucial.
