To answer the fans' queries, during the red carpet for the 2023 Golden Globes, Ortega told Variety that she hasn't even seen the script.

One of the famous scenes in the series is a dance scene on Episode 4 that exploded on TikTok once it got remixed to Lady Gaga’s "Bloody Mary." While speaking to Variety, Ortega talked about the popularity of the dance craze and how it would be wild to have Gaga cast on the Netflix show.

“I'm sure Netflix would love that,” Ortega answered the question of what role might be fitting for Gaga in season 2. “I think Mrs. Thornhill and Wednesday had this weird mentor relationship or kind of understood each other in a certain way, so, if Lady Gaga were to be a part, I think it would have to be two monsters that understand each other.”
