The most surprising source of inspiration for Netflix’s Wednesday may simply be David Fincher’s 1999 masterpiece Fight Club, which featured Ed Norton and Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wednesday co-creator Miles Millar discussed how he came up with significant Season 1 shocks like Tyler and Ms. Thornhill turning out to be the ones terrorizing Nevermore Academy. In addition to admitting that the task was “really much more involved and challenging than we thought” in terms of making sure there were “no loose ends.”
“There are no instances where you think, “Well, that couldn’t have occurred,” as we like to refer to them in Fight Club. Undoubtedly, it was a jigsaw puzzle, “said he. “The presence of all the red herrings was confirmed once all eight episodes had been watched, which appeared entirely strange. However, we didn’t know it would work until a real audience watched it. As a result, solving a whodunnit can be extremely frustrating because the answer could be so clear.”
Ms. Thornhill’s Wednesday shows leave her audience astonished
Millar expressed his worry that selecting Christina Ricci as Ms. Thornhill might reveal the identity of the show’s “bad person,” but in the end, he was appreciative that viewers “were really into the mystery, and the red herrings were working.” Some fans of the series were surprised to learn that Ricci had previously played Wednesday Addams in the 1990s Addams Family movies.
It is still unknown if Ms. Thornhill will make a comeback on Wednesday because the Netflix series has not yet received a second-season renewal. A Season 2 announcement, however, apparently won’t take place until early 2023. Insiders have said that producers are researching filming sites and seeking more writers for the forthcoming episodes.
Should Wednesday earn Netflix’s approval for a second season, Gough and Millar already detailed their ideas for the upcoming season. Gough stated that he would like portions of the new episodes to concentrate on Wednesday’s friendship with her werewolf roommate Enid Sinclair, who is portrayed by Emma Myers. It might become difficult by other variables, he noted, “like any relationship or friendship.” The mother of Wednesday, Morticia Addams, who was portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones in Season 1 as a guest star, is something that Millar wants to develop further.
On Netflix, viewers may watch Wednesday’s first season.
