The Wednesday blu-ray doesn't have the "[barely restrained seething]" subtitle... That's a Netflix-only feature... The disc has the much less inspired "[breath trembling]". It's not all advantages to owning the disc...

I loved how that subtitle captured Jenna's Wednesday.

I can't wait for season two! But I'll have to...

It's a shame Emma didn't get to use her werewolf training this season, maybe next? Wednesday got knocked unconscious a disconcerting amount of times, it's a good thing she has Goody now, might help with the healing.

It's weird how they seemed to have special events every single day, Harvest Festival, Outreach Day, Poe Cup, Raven Dance, Parents Day, etc. Hardly any actual lessons seemed to be happening. Still, instead of more school, I'm hoping for the next season to be set outside the school. And have more Goody Addams, I like a powerful witch.

The blu-ray for Wednesday arrived today! On Wednesday. Starting my umpteenth watch-through.

With recently the great experience of watching Miller's Girl on the big screen and now eight episodes of brilliance to see, these are really Jenna days...

We're getting the full opening credits in episode one. I think on Netflix we only got them on two episodes and not the first one. Or do I misremember?

Edit: I do misremember. Episode two has the shortened opening credits.

We all know the level of detail Jenna puts in her performances, for Wednesday she got formal fencing and cello training, but on her Instagram posts of that time you can see she also had a mechanical typewriter in her apartment back in Romania. In this opening episode Wednesday is very comfortable typing her novel on the old typewriter, but doesn't really know how to work the keyboard of Enid's laptop.


I've read news that despite being on streaming, Wednesday is going to be released on disc as well. Season one will apparently come out on 26 March.

No point watching, or even making, Scream 7, now that Jenna Ortega will not be in it due to scheduling conflicts.

Wednesday season one took eight months to film, she's doing season two soon, so there's just no time fitting in a seventh Scream. Apparently this was already being discussed before the strike began.

Season 2 of Wednesday may start filming in April, according to Deadline. Jenna first has Beetlejuice 2 to finish; Death of a Unicorn has already finished.

Watching Wednesday for only the fifth time ever. Jenna Ortega is so good!
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday
in reply to Gidi Kroon

It's the episode with the second of two cello scenes by Jenna in the series. It's my understanding many more were filmed in the series, but they had to be cut because the episodes ran too long. I so hope we get to see them some day.

It's also the episode of the extreme camera angles in front of the fireplace.


Jenna Ortega has been nominated for an Emmy, as has her show Wednesday!

Apparently it has been 13 years since another Latina actress was nominated for an Emmy as lead.


Two titbits from yesterday's Tudum, Netflix's fan event, that I gather from clips posted:

Wednesday season 2 is going to introduce another Addams Family character. Many people have asked for Cousin Itt to appear, but the cast say they don't know yet who it will be. Also, from the fact that the cast announcing this was Jenna, Emma, Joy and Hunter, you can guess their characters are back.

You is going to be the final season, as announced earlier, and there was no news. Just the suggestion that Joe is going to face (an) opponent(s) related to the many loose ends. The clips to illustrate these loose ends included Jenna Ortega as Ellie. My favourite story would be where Ellie and Nadia team up to take Joe down.

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.

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...
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday



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:

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...

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
in reply to Gidi Kroon

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.
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday #WednesdayNetflix


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)

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
in reply to Gidi Kroon

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
