“I think we want to up the horror aspect a little bit, then get Wednesday out of the romantic situation and just let her be her own individual and fight her own crime,” she tells Fallon with a smile. Recently, Ortega revealed her stance(Opens in a new tab) on some of the plotlines in Wednesday, telling Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast that she wasn’t always happy with the script and grew protective of the character: “Her being in a love triangle made no sense,” she told Shepard.
