During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Golden Globe nominee Jenna Ortega opened up about her preparation for the upcoming production start of Wednesday Season 2.

“I’ve just been reading scripts. By the time we actually start shooting, it will have been over two years since we wrapped. So internally, mentally, I’m like, ‘Okay, do I start prepping myself now?'” Ortega shared. “I don’t consider myself method or anything like that, but I do think it’s very normal for actors to naturally acclimate or take in the surroundings of their characters, especially when you’re doing something like that for so long. It might be time to start getting a little more sarcastic again or watching different movies again to get into the mindset.”

The Scream VI star also expressed her excitement for the new characters who will be joining the highly-anticipated next installment, teasing the show’s expanding supernatural world. She also promised that each episode of Season 2 will stand out on its own, just like Season 1’s school dance episode.

“Even reading scripts has been exciting, seeing all of the new characters that are coming in. We’re definitely expanding on the supernatural world,” Ortega continued. “Our show had all sorts of werewolves and vampires and da-ta-da. And I think we expand on that a little bit. I mean, in the first season we had episodes that really stood out visually, like the dance episode was a really big one for people, and that setting was very particular and it felt like Prom Night, a little bit, or Carrie. Every episode [of season two] that I’ve read so far is like that. It just stands out on its own as a very memorable scene or bit or setting, which I think is what I’m most excited for, because to pull that off for eight episodes is, I think, really incredible and really lucky.”

Who’s involved in Wednesday Season 2?

Wednesday is a coming-of-age supernatural comedy starring Jenna Ortega as the titular lead along with Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Victor Dorobantu as Thing, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams, and George Burcea as Lurch. For Season 2, Ortega will also be returning as a producer. In a previous interview, she revealed that the next installment will focus more on the horror aspect, confirming that her character won’t have any love interest in Season 2.

The series is executive produced and directed by Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride) in his television directorial debut. Season 1 also starred Gwendoline Christie, Emma Myers, Hunter Doohan, Joy Sunday, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, Percy Hynes White and Christina Ricci. At the moment, it remains unknown if some of the first season cast members would also be returning, especially when the next installment will shift its focus from the Nevermore school to the Addams Family’s home.
