The new Netflix series, titled “Wednesday,” has taken the world by storm. The show stars Jenna Ortega as the classic childhood character, Wednesday Addams. Fans are impressed by Ortega’s representation of Wednesday, claiming it is “simply the best portrayal of Wednesday Addams I can ever ask for” and “everything [fans] imagined and more.”
In the show, Wednesday attends Nevermore Academy, where she meets other supernatural characters such as Enid Sinclair, played by Emma Myers. The show hit all the marks with its inclusion of mystery, romance, thrill, and action. It even includes a minor role of Christina Ricci, who played the role of Wednesday Addams in the 1991 version. She is now playing the role of Marilyn Thornhill, who is the teacher and mentor of Wednesday.
The series has a total of 8 episodes, and fans are dying for a season two. The reviews say, “the choice of actors, director, script, is absolutely amazing.” Another review reads, “Ortega is the best Wednesday yet.” The actress is known for her popular roles in Scream, The Fallout, and Netflix’s Yes Day. She has been nominated for many awards and even won MTV’s Most Frightened Performance, which makes her perfect for the role.
