Jenna Ortega Hoping for Lady Gaga Cameo in ‘Wednesday’ Season 2
Wednesday may have been locked out of last night’s Golden Globes awards, losing out to both Best Musical/Comedy TV Series and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series by Abbot Primary Schoolalthough it is still riding a wave of success after its big debut on Netflix in November 2022.
A second season has already been confirmed and will likely begin production later in the year, with star Jenna Ortega hoping for a special Mother Monster cameo. In episode four of the show, the soundtrack of a dance scene is followed by The Cramp’s “Goo Goo Muck”, although a viral edit of the dance to Lady Gaga’s Bloody Mary was viral on social media shortly after the show was released and proceeded to lead the dance. song to success eleven years after her debut album in 2011 This method was born.
Gaga herself got in on the fun, recreating Wednesday’s dance on TikTok and now Ortega hopes she could make a cameo appearance in season two. Speaking to Variety at the Golden Globes pre-show, she said she was sure Gaga and Wednesday would be friends rather than enemies:
“If Lady Gaga was part of it, they would have to be two monsters who understand each other.
She also explained her brief encounter with Gaga years ago:
“You know what’s funny? A long time ago I worked with a hairdresser who worked with Gaga and I had just seen Gaga with her a few years before. [The hairdresser got] Gaga [to make] video of me saying she heard I was a fan. Gaga made me a sweet video. I doubt she remembers. But to see her do that now… it’s one of those moments you realize that life changes very quickly.”
But Ortega was keen to confirm that she had “no contact” with Gaga other than that and refused to be drawn on specifics for what Wednesday will do next:
“I didn’t see anything and I don’t know anything. As an actor you are told what to do. I’m waiting for it! I think they’re just starting to assemble a writers’ room so we’ll see.”
Ortega was instantly iconic as Wednesday Addams, perhaps even surpassing her co-star Christina Ricci’s performance in the 1990s The Addams Family movies. We want him back on the screen as soon as possible, as it is Wednesday it was truly one of our highlights of the year.
Wednesday available to stream on Netflix.
