Jenna Ortega and Emma Myers are prerty close in real life, read on to understand the showrunner's perpective on their equation in reel life.
Wednesday showrunners Miles Millar and Al Gough are apparently open to the possibility of a romance between the titular character played by Jenna Ortega and her best friend Enid played by Emma Myers. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Millar said that while the creators were open to anything, the idea of sisterhood is deeply rooted in the show.
We're not gonna discount anything, and, obviously, sometimes characters reveal themselves, which is the fun thing we love about television, that it's an organic journey,
We have a roadmap, and we'd like to have routes along that map that take you in unexpected directions. So, we're open to everything. We wanna explore that friendship in every way.
The creators also mentioned that they want to remain very cautious about being influenced by fans and their expectations. Friendship is currently on the charts.
Following the release of Netflix's own Addam Family franchise, many fans saw the two characters in that light. However, in the same interview, Gough said that they want to focus on the strength of female friendships as of now. "For us, the show also is really about this female friendship, with Wednesday and Enid really being at the center of that. The fact that they really connected with audiences, has been really gratifying. So, we’re excited to explore now that Wednesday’s dipped her toe into the friendship pool, what’s that gonna look like?"
Both the showrunners are parents to daughters and they want the titular character to be fully developed before exploring these areas. They also talked about how they want to make Wednesday's character an aspirational one. "It's really hit that target in a really positive way, even though she is so morbid and dark and kooky and crazy, but she's actually an incredibly positive force in her world and our world." The creators believe they have successfully put something "very positive out there."
The show has taken the whole world by storm and has faired really well for Netflix and the cast and crew of the show. The show has earned the second position on Netflix's top English-Langage TV shows of all-time overtaking Ryan Murphy's Dahmer- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
The Showrunners also plan to complicate other relationships between other characters. They also have the plan to develop the dynamic between Morticia and Wednesday and said that it will be explored in the coming season. The first week of Wednesday saw roughly 6 billion minutes of watch making it an instant success.
