Wednesday has taken on a life of its own since appearing on Netflix late last year, with the Addams family-inspired series that spawn countless tributes and fan reactions. None were as popular as the popularity of the “Wednesday dance”, which gained popularity on the social media platform TikTok. While the dance was performed to The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” during the show, many versions on social media were set to a remix of Lady Gaga’s “Bloody Marry”, even spawning a video of Gaga doing the dance herself. In a recent interview with Varietyseries star Jenna Ortega addressed Gaga’s reaction to the dance — and spoke of the possibility of the pop icon appearing in the show’s new green-lit second season.
“It’s really strange,” Ortega explained. “You know what’s funny? A long time ago I worked with a hairdresser who worked with Gaga and I had just seen Gaga in concert a few years before. [The hairdresser got] Gaga [to make] me a video of her 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 where you realize life changes very quickly.”
“If Lady Gaga was part of it, it would have to be two monsters who understand each other,” Ortega said, referring to Christina Ricci’s Miss Thornhill.
What’s Wednesday as regards?
Netflix describes Wednesday as “a scavenging, supernatural-infused mystery that charts Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy, where she attempts to master her emerging psychic abilities, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town and solve a murder mystery that baffled her parents 25 years ago – while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
Jenna Ortega (scream) leads a cast that includes Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) as Nevermore Academy Principal Larissa Weems, Jamie McShane (The Lincoln Attorney) as Sheriff Galpin, Percy Hynes White (The gifted) as Xavier Thorpe, Hunter Doohan (Your honor) as Tyler Galpin, Riki Lindhome (Duncanville) as Dr. Valerie Kinbott and Christina Ricci (1991’s The Addams family) as Marilyn Thornhill. Also featured are Emma Myers (Girl in the basement) as Enid Sinclair, Joy Sunday (Dear white people) as Bianca Barclay, Naomi J Ogawa (Skylines) as Yoko Tanaka, Moosa Mostafa (The last bus) as Eugene Ottinger and Georgie Farmer (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) as Ajax Petropolus.
