The creators of Netflix’s hit show Wednesday have revealed that they are “open” to making her character a lesbian.
Some fans online have been pushing for Wednesday to end up with her best friend and roommate, Enid Sinclair — despite the girls just having a normal teenage friendship.
Bounding Into Comics noted that “the series does not feature any explicit ‘hint’ or ‘tease’ of romantic feelings between Wednesday and Enid, instead showing them direct their affections exclusively towards the series’ male cast.”
“Rather, this ‘ship’ between the two is entirely predicated upon certain fans’ overly-dramatic reading of the girls’ average friendship,” the report added.

The show’s creators, Al Gough and Miles Millar, addressed the discussion during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Asked by the website about what is coming next for the characters, Gough said, “We wanna sort of explore and sort of complicate all of those relationships going forward.”
“The school was closed when they left, which gave us the most possibilities for season two, and I think that’s something that we’re excited to explore,” Gough stated. “For us, the show also is really about this female friendship, with Wednesday and Enid really being at the center of that.”
The Hollywood Reporter then asked about a possible romantic relationship between the two girls.
“Some users online are even hoping that Enid and Wednesday are endgame. Were you going for that at all at any point, or did you want to solely focus on their friendship?”
Millar responded that “sometimes characters reveal themselves.”
“As Al said, this idea of sisterhood is key to the show,” before adding, “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.”
“We have a roadmap, and we’d like to have routes along that map that take you in unexpected directions,” he continued. “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. As Al said, that friendship is key to our sort of vision of the show.”
