Wednesday & Enid Romance Not Off the Table According to Show Creators

“We have a roadmap, and we’d like to have routes along that map that take you in unexpected directions. So, we’re open to everything.”

Netflix's Wednesday has been one of the biggest shows of the year, but will it ever have queer content?

This fall, Netflix's Addams Family spinoff show has become one of the streamer's most popular shows ever. While in the show, Wednesday's canon romance and flirtations were with boys Tyler and Xavier, the most popular ship among fans is Wednesday and her bright and sunny Nevermore Academy roommate Enid.

While fans got a lot of sapphic vibes from the show's trailer, many were upset to find that the show only had straight flirting. At least so far.

The Hollywood Reporter talked to the show's creators, Al Gough and Miles Millar about the relationship between Wednesday and Enid, and if there's a possibility it could grow into something more. Good news for fans of the ship: it's still possible.

"As Al said, this idea of sisterhood is key to the show," Millar said when asked about fans who ship the two characters. "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. So, we're open to everything," he continued.

Millar did emphasize that he's not promising fans anything, just that they are open to changes.

"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," he said. "As Al said, that friendship is key to our sort of vision of the show."

When season two comes around, fans will have to see if any of these new changes head in a gay direction. Even if Enid and Wednesday aren't endgame, it would be a great plot for the series to have them fall for each other.
