Jenna Ortega may be perpetually stoic in her portrayal of Wednesday Addams, but every once in a while, you have to let that face loose. Thanks to Netflix, we have the official blooper reel for Wednesday.
Check this out:
With everything about the Wednesday character being so collected and stiff, it’s actually nice to see Ortega fool around a little; and not just her, but the rest of the cast as well including Luis Guzman and Catherine Zeta-Jones. With Ortega starring in so many horror films prior to this series, you can forget that she actually has quite the range of emotions.
So far, Wednesday is sitting at being one of the most popular shows on Netflix right now. The series managed to pull viewership numbers that managed to rival that of Stranger Things, and a lot of fans are rediscovering the reason why the character was so popular from the Addams Family films in the first place.
A second season has yet to be announced, but I am hoping that we actually have a live-action movie spinoff come out featuring the cast members from this series. Until then though, all we have are these fun behind-the-scenes looks.
Here’s the official description for the series:
WEDNESDAY — starring Jenna Ortega in the title role, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci and more — is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Snap snap.
The first season of Wednesday is now streaming on Netflix.
