Season two will lean into the "horror aspect" of the show

While a release date for season two is yet to be announced, leading lady Jenna Ortega has teased some new storylines in recent months. Speaking with Elle Fanning for Variety's Actors on Actors series, Jenna – who also serves as an executive producer – said: "We've decided we want to lean into the horror aspect of the show a little bit more.

"Because it is so lighthearted, and a show like this with vampires and werewolves and superpowers, you don't want to take yourself too seriously. We're ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great."

In January, Jenna also caught up with E! on the Emmy's red carpet, teasing: "I've received some scripts for the second season. There's really, really good one-liners, and I think everything's bigger, it's a lot more action-packed. Each episode will probably feel a little bit more like a movie, which is nice."
