Jenna Ortega might be returning to our favorite thriller!
The creator of the hit Netflix series “YOU” has hinted at the possibility of the actress returning to the show. After playing the role of Ellie Alves in the second season, she left a lasting impression with her fearless and sharp performance.
‘YOU’ Creator Teases Plot Twist Open To Jenna Ortega And Others Returning
The 20-year-old’s return to the show is highly anticipated, as we are eager to see her bring her unique flavor to the series once again. Showrunner Sera Gamble revealed plans to bring Ortega back, as Ellie was one of the few to survive Joe Goldberg’s [Penn Badgley] friendship.
Despite being referenced in Season 3, Ortega’s scheduling conflicts with her role in “Wednesday” caused a delay. Speaking to Indie Wire, she said, “We wanted to bring Ellie back, and we heard, ‘Oh, Jenna is doing some show.'”
She also noted that the star’s presence was a delight and would love to have her back on set if her schedule could allow it. As in the show, Joe, who has taken on another identity with the name Jonathan Moore has bonded with student Nadia, which evokes memories of his close relationship with Ellie.
Meanwhile, she has been busy with her upcoming slasher film “Scream VI,” three additional films, and a second season of “Wednesday.” Ortega expressed her excitement about reprising her role in 2019 and would love to see Ellie “come back and take control of her life.” She stated:
“Ellie has so much potential and talent that she shouldn’t waste because of him.”
The popular Netflix series has always been a complex show to understand, as it presents two contrasting sides. On the one hand, the show portrays Joe [Penn Badgley], the book-loving lead character, as a supersensitive individual who can easily disguise himself.
On the other, he stalks and murders women and men who get in the way of his obsessions. In previous seasons, the show tried to reconcile this contradiction by pairing Joe with a character named Love, who was just as over the top as he was.
However, Love had to go by the end of Season 3, as even she had become too much of a killer for him. In Season 4, Joe, presumed dead in the US after leaving behind part of his foot in his old house, has relocated to London to re-stalk Marienne, the librarian who caught his attention in the suburbs.
The show presents a jolly and happy atmosphere until the group starts getting picked off one by one by a mysterious killer who isn’t Joe. This attracts precisely the kind of attention that Joe is trying to avoid, as he claims to have reformed and no longer kills women.
The true appeal of “You” lies in its satirical side, which is far better than its stalker-murderer elements. The show presents a grubby pleasure that keeps viewers hooked while also providing a shot of adrenaline. With its satirical features, it proves to be a unique and entertaining show that continues to captivate audiences.
‘Wednesday’ Star Is The Global Ambassador For Adidas
Adidas has signed the actress as their newest global ambassador. The sportswear brand hopes to reach the Gen Z demographic through the actress, who will be the face of a new label called “Adidas Sportswear.” This marks the first new label launch by the German company in over 50 years.
The Blast noted that the company made the announcement with a picture of Ortega sporting a new outfit from the brand. She was seen wearing a long-sleeved striped purple and black jersey, paired with a purple tracksuit and white sneakers featuring the iconic three stripes of Adidas. Speaking on her latest achievement, the Golden Globe Awards nominee said in a statement:
“My love for Adidas goes back years, it has always had a presence in sport, music, and culture and continues to be an innovator in many ways. Growing up, Adidas sneakers and T-shirts were my go-to. To this day, a lot of my wardrobe is made up of the iconic three stripes. I’m honored to be a part of this legendary family of changemakers and be the face of its all-new label. I can’t wait to show you guys.”
