Wednesday is one show that definitely didn’t drop the ball in the casting department. Not only is Jenna Ortega the perfect Wednesday Addams for our times, Nevermore Academy and the town of Jericho are filled with top-tier supporting performers, from Gwendoline Christie as Principal Weems to Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán as Gomez and Morticia. The best piece of stunt casting in season one, though, has to be the hiring of OG Wednesday herself Christina Ricci.
Season two is going to be hard-pressed to top Ricci’s presence, then, but as far as the fans are concerned, there’s only one bit of casting that would come up to that level. Practically every Aubrey Plaza fan out there is begging Tim Burton to hire the Parks and Recreation star for Wednesday‘s sophomore run. The internet’s long been of the opinion that Plaza would make for the perfect adult Wednesday, and now folks are hoping Burton makes this a reality, should Netflix do the right thing and greenlight a second run.
