The creator of “YOU” can follow the hope of the return of Jenna Ortega

Jenna Ortega may be returning to “You”!
Over the weekend, Netflix unveiled the first trailer for the thriller’s upcoming fifth and final season at its annual global event, Tudum, hinting at the return of Ortega’s character, Ellie Alves. Amidst the targeting, there have been ongoing requests from fans for the streaming platform and showrunner Sera Gamble to bring their favorite character back into the rotation.
“You” lovers can see Jenna Ortega for a second time in the Netflix hit series
Over the past four years, viewers have seen Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) stuck in his old, psychopathic ways, with his past always coming back to haunt him. And with her story coming to an end in season five, it makes sense that she’d come full circle back to her hometown of New York.
Despite this intriguing premise, Netflix is keeping the names of those it would run into upon its return to the Big Apple close to their chest. Because of that, Badgley didn’t say much when he addressed the crowd on Saturday.
“I heard you’re waiting on the edge of the seats, thinking about the epic ending to ‘You.’ More importantly, you think about who Joe is up against, or should I say, finally coming back to New York,” the 36-year-old began.
He went on to state that while he “can’t say who yet,” the audience knew “a lot of the loose ends in Joe’s past. The question is, who are you?
The clip then flashed through faces that viewers have met in previous seasons of the show, including Ortega’s Ellie, whose sister died because she met Joe in season two. They also showed John Stamos’ Dr. Nicky, the therapist Joe successfully sets up to kill Guinevere Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail).
The trailer immediately piqued the interest of fans, and many started dropping their thoughts and conspiracies. One man claimed, “They’ll find a way to make sure they get Jenna back,” and another asked, “What if Ellie was the one to get Joe out? Man, I want to see that happen.”
“We hope Paco, Jenna Ortagga, the Quinnes and the rest of the Joes tricked her into coming after her,” shared a third eager watcher, while a fourth pleaded, “Please bring back Jenna Ortega. He was really good in season 2.”A fifth exclaims, “I BET IT’S ELLIE COMING BACK OR PACO!!!” and a sixth simply stated: “We all know Jenna is going to win the show.”
It’s worth noting that fans aren’t the only ones waiting for Ortega’s second act in the series, as The Blast previously reported that showrunner Gamble wanted the same.
In an interview, she revealed that execs “wanted to bring Ellie back” but couldn’t because they heard the “Scream” actress was “doing a show.” Gamble then went on to say that he would love to have the 20-year-old brunette back on set, especially as her presence delighted the cast and crew.
“Wednesday” influenced the MTV Movie & TV award-winning fashion sense
Although Ortega has been a screen star since childhood, the most significant change in her appearance came when she starred as Wednesday Addams in the eponymous Netflix show. Since then, her style has shifted towards goth clothing, which her character predominantly wore in the comedy horror.
The ‘Stuck in the Middle’ star opened up about updating her wardrobe in April: “I’ve always respected goth culture. I’ve always had a darker sense of humor, but never felt like I could express it. Now I feel that I can embrace these qualities.”
The actress even had the courage to cut off her long hair, which she was “very, very attached to” before taking part in the series. In fact, being on the show “made him more adventurous; to experiment and be more creative that way.”
Ortega’s new style was in full swing when she attended the 2023 SAG Awards in a black Versace dress that featured a cleavage-baring plunging neckline, a flowing skirt and a thigh-high slit. She completed the outfit with a necklace, silver rings, black platform heels and a cheekbone that emphasized her natural, gothic beauty.
