Interesting how the Netflix video to announce this year's Tudum event (17 June) says there's also going to be an announcement about Wednesday. Weird because season 2 was already announced and it hasn't even been written yet.

Also they suggest an announcement for Queen Charlotte, which I thought was a one season spin-off of Bridgerton.

Doing the final one Wednesday per Wednesday, episode 8 of my fourth run-through. Getting ready for the pre-premiere of Scream VI later this evening. It's a Jenna Ortega day...

Scream VI is released in Dutch cinemas tomorrow, Thursday 9 March. In the US it is released Friday.

So interesting how she has this 'does not compute' reaction when she turns out to be wrong about something. And she is wrong about things surprisingly often for someone coming across as so confident.
#WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
She also passes out / is knocked out disturbingly often.

Jenna Ortega never loses her cool while eating increasingly hot spicy wings and while being interviewed. She talks about Wednesday, Tim Burton, Scream, horror in general, writing essays, teen stereotypes in scripts, etc.

New interview with Jenna Ortega for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, with her fellow nominees for the SAG Award in her category. Focusing on Wednesday from an actress perspective. I really like seeing how much work and thought she put into it. The awards are handed out tomorrow I think.

Doing one Wednesday per Wednesday for my fourth run-through of the series. Meanwhile also at episode four of The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. There's something quite Wednesday about this Lizzie.

Jenna Ortega is nominated for best actress in a comedy series at the SAG Awards for her role in Wednesday! She deserves all the awards...

A long interview with Jenna Ortega at a screening of Wednesday, during what I think is a fashion show. She talks of course about Wednesday, but also other aspects of her career.

And I also don't know why the video is mostly on its side and why the beginning is edited to be at the end. As far as I can tell, this is the official recording.

While with the success of Wednesday on Netflix a go-ahead for season two seems only natural, here are my completely uninformed thoughts about it: it has become clear that there can't be a Wednesday season two or any offshoot of the Addams Family universe in film, without Jenna Ortega. She's been so much the center of the success. And if I were Jenna, which I'm not, I'd want in this case to see scripts before committing. So chicken and egg... Maybe a series of independent Wednesday films are most likely.

It has not even been three weeks. I like their Instagram caption:

Thing issued this statement: 👊👍🤘

Jenna Ortega and her series Wednesday have both been nominated for the Golden Globes!

Nice to see how everyone is having so much fun and is so relaxed on the Wednesday set. Seems to be a good place with good people. Not so nice to see Emma getting that flashlight straight in her face, I guess that did hurt...
#WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday #JennaOrtega #bloopers
Hmm, quote-share of my post didn't work so well. I can't upload the video here either...

Apparently people have watched Wednesday over 340 million hours in a single week, even I can't claim that's all me. It's a record. It is number 1 in 83 countries.
#WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
Before Wednesday Jenna Ortega had 8 million followers on Instagram, which I think is a lot, and with the Wednesday promotion going on it had creeped up to 9 million. I was wondering whether the release would lift it over the 10 million. Now, a week after the release, she has 16.6 million followers on Instagram. I guess people like what she did.

Such is the success of Wednesday that after years of me being the only lonely one talking about Jenna Ortega on the fediverse addressing the void, there are now multiple people 'here' posting about her show. (I tried to reshare but it doesn't work at the moment)
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
(And search actually works on Friendica, just saying... Discoverability, as ever on the fediverse, not so much)
Can next time when I say an actress is really good, people just believe me?

I'm three episodes in and it's so so good! Jenna is amazing, striking exactly the right tone to let a character like Wednesday Addams lead the story and draw you in.
#Wednesday #JennaOrtega
It was totally amazing. I want a season two. It's showing such great judgement by Jenna Ortega of presenting exactly the right kind and amount of internal torment to hook you on the character and the story, while also being true to the version we know who had her emotionless one-liners as a support character but which wouldn't work for leading eight episodes. This works. But we know, and many people say it, Jenna always delivers.

Preview! Watch the first 10 minutes of Wednesday on the Netflix site:

Jenna Ortega is even more amazing than I was expecting!

Tv interview with Jenna Ortega on Good Morning America, with clips from the show, her mentioning all the training she did for it, and where she shows her reset face and Kubrick stare.

Interview with Jenna Ortega on ET Canada about Wednesday. Out tomorrow!

Great interview and great photo shoot with the great Jenna Ortega in People en Español (it's in English at least when I open it) about Wednesday, diversity, representation for Latinos and Latinas, using your platform, etc.

Two more days to Wednesday and Jenna's face gets everywhere. I don't know what trays these are, it's not the Netflix canteen, is it? From an Instagram story by one of the show's creators.
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
The Wednesday poster with Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams on a stack of trays on a trolley. The text says "No sharp objects? What a shame."
Not the Netflix canteen, but trays at an airport apparently.

Quick black-carpet interview by ET with Jenna Ortega about Wednesday. She really did months of cello and fencing before and during shooting. It's going to be so amazing.

A video interview in TeenVogue with Jenna Ortega with a very detailed explanation of all that goes into making Wednesday Addams. Experiments with voice inflection, how the no blinking happened. Transcript on the site.

"I had an extra hand"


Three days to go until we can marvel in the brilliance of Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams in Wednesday on Netflix. Here a clip on their Instagram.

Tsk at reviewers that are surprised that Wednesday Addams is so brilliantly played in the new tv show: it said so right there on the information you received, it says "Wednesday Addams - Jenna Ortega". That's a synonym for "brilliantly played".
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday

Another Jenna Ortega interview about Wednesday, on WhenInManilla. She talks about playing the cello and how she insisted it was her, and also about choreographing the dance. Sounds like Tim Burton trusted her input a lot, and why not.
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday

Jenna Ortega talks to a guy named Jake on "Jake's takes" about Wednesday. They discuss how she choreographed the dance and that if Wednesday were to watch Scream, she'd criticise Ghostface for being clumsy.

Jenna Ortega and her Wednesday cast mates speak to NME interview, with interesting tidbits about the show.

It's Wednesday, so a new Wednesday clip! An amazing look inside Nevermore Academy with some cast and crew quotes. There are some new clips with Jenna Ortega as Wednesday and I'm even more impressed; she doesn't just always excels, she exceeds. It's going to be so amazing! (23 Nov, Netflix)

I need to update the blog post since most mentioned #JennaOrtega projects are out now, but in the pipeline now are:

* #Wednesday (23 November on Netflix)
* Scream 6 (March 2023 in cinemas)
* Finestkind (unfortunately on Paramount+ 😪 )
* Miller's Girl

While Jenna Ortega is making magic in Romania (filming Wednesday) I thought it a good moment to make a list from a fan's perspective of what is in the pipeline. Much to look forward to!

Scream (6) with Jenna Ortega will now be out 10 March 2023, instead of the 31 scheduled earlier. This is the same day as You season four, but it's unlikely Jenna will be in that due to filming loads of other things.

Four important dates:

  • 21 October: The Peripheral on Amazon Prime with Chloë Grace Moretz
  • 23 November: Wednesday on Netflix with Jenna Ortega
  • 5 December: His Dark Materials season three on HBO Max with Dafne Keen
  • 10 February (& 10 March): You season four on Netflix with Amy-leigh Hickman

Jenna Ortega is so amazing in this trailer, the details in the performance are exceptional. I've been singing her praises for a while and I feel so vindicated...
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday

Mayhem, mystery and murder — this isn't your average Wednesday.

From the mind of Tim Burton, comes @wednesdayaddams. Premiering this fall

A little detail as example: she learned how to play the cello for this role. There's no just waving a stick around near some strings here and then call it a day like some others would have done.
“Little did I know that I’d be stepping into a nightmare. Full of mystery, mayhem and murder. I think I’m going to love it here.”


Jenna Ortega posted this amazing photo on her Instagram of herself in her Wednesday Addams costume. Can't wait to see what they've made!
