Ortega told Tudum, “[Wednesday] sticks to her guns, and she’s not out to please anybody,” adding, “Which, as someone who used to be an immense people pleaser, I really respect.”
The official description of the show’s first season was, “years as a student at Nevermore Academy. She attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”

The creator duo have suggested that the story of the upcoming season might revolve around the stalker who had been sending creepy texts to Wednesday.
Millar and Gough said, “[The stalker proves] that threats remain out there… to both Wednesday and the school,” adding, “Not all not loose ends have been tied up neatly as she thinks they have.”
