Nevermore Academy almost had a very different student within their ranks, like Jenna Ortega she revealed that she had resigned Wednesday several times in an interview with the Times UK. Before being part of one of the biggest Netflix series of all time, the actress had a strong desire to work on more films, instead of the medium of television she was used to throughout her career -life. Ortega’s goal to appear in more features almost took away the world of her performance as the icon The Addams Family character, which ended up increasing the actress’s fame considerably. Here’s what Ortega said in the interview:

I got the email, I forwarded it. I’ve done so much television in my life, I’ve never wanted to do anything but film. When I first started acting, I don’t want to say that no one believed in me, but at the same time no one believed in me. You have to prove yourself. It’s only in the last three or four years that I’ve had the opportunity to start going up for film. I was afraid that signing on to another TV show would stop me from doing other jobs that I really wanted and cared about. The only reason I went back is because of Tim [Burton, director and executive producer of Wednesday] there is such a legend, and we happened to get along very well. But even then I said, ‘Ah, no – I think I’m all right,’ a couple [more] times.”

In the Netflix spinoff, Wednesday is sent to Nervermore because her parents, Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzman), worried about her behavior after the girl threw a live piranha into the pool at her former school while the boys from the swim team were training. Wednesday’s motivation behind the noble act was that the boys had been bothering her brother, Pugsley (Isaac Ordonez) earlier that day. Nevertheless, she must face the consequences and start a new life in a school full of terrifying creatures who must learn how to control their powers.


Although he was not expected to perform with high standards behind him during his promotion, Wednesday is fast becoming one of the biggest shows of 2022, generating viewership numbers greater than HBO’s House of the Dragon. While the Game of Thrones spin-off easily beat Wednesday In the first two weeks it was available for streaming, it was surpassed by The Elder Addams Child a month after the Netflix production made its debut. Not only did the record prove that many people were looking in Wednesdaybut that the good word of mouth that the series has created over time is the main reason for its success.
