Wednesday And Enid's Relationship Could Become Romantic, Says Show's Co-Creator

The creators of the hit Netflix series Wednesday have alluded to the possibility that the relationship between roommates Wednesday Addams and Enid could become romantic, after much speculation from fans of the show.

Since its release in November, the series has constantly broken records - marking 341.2 million hours watched within the first week, per The Economic Times.

Directed by Tim Burton, it's a modern take on The Addams Family, which originally began as a comic strip in The New Yorker in the 1930s. Then, in the 90s, Christina Ricci famously portrayed the macabre teen in two flicks about the odd old money clan.

This latest series focuses on the family's eldest child, Wednesday Addams, and her life at Nevermore Boarding School for misfits. Throughout the show, Wednesday learns how to harness her growing psychic abilities and tries to investigate a decades-long murder case involving her parents.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's creators - Al Gough and Miles Millar - discussed a potential second season and hinted at Wednesday's friendship with her roommate Enid Sinclair (played by Emma Myers), stating that there is always the possibility it could go further even if it was never the intention.

When asked what is to come next for the show - especially after Nevermore closed down at the end of the series - Gough said: "We wanna sort of explore and sort of complicate all of those relationships going forward [...] 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, it has been really gratifying."

The creators were also asked how, given Wednesday had "dipped her toe" in both platonic and romantic relationships, many fans were wondering whether Wednesday and her roommate Enid would be "endgame." Millar responded: "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."

He continued: "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, but we're not gonna be, this is where you sometimes get misdirected by fans and things like that, so it's just being really open to see how those characters develop and that friendship."

And it seems that Wednesday star Jenna Ortega is fully supportive of the idea.

Speaking to PRIDE on the red carpet of the series premiere, Ortega said that "in a perfect world, [Wenclair] would have been a thing." ("Wenclair" being the adorable hashtag fans created for Wednesday and Enid Sinclair.)
