Why did Jenna Ortega leave You season 4?
The program’s showrunner Sara Gamble revealed to IndieWire: “We wanted to bring Ellie back and we heard, ‘Oh, Jenna is doing some show.’
“It’s been just such a pleasure to see Jenna this year. We have ideas for Ellie if her schedule allows her to visit us again.
“Any character who’s not dead who knows anything about Joe, it’s fair game to try to exert any justice.”
Previously, Jenna expressed interest in seeing her You character come back for another season.
“It would be amazing to see Ellie come back and take control of her life,” she told Teen Vogue.
“I just want her to be an even bigger bada**. I don’t want her to come back and be extremely vulnerable and sad.
“We have to remember that even though people still find Joe somewhat charming, he’s evil, he does terrible things, and he gets away with them because of his gender, race, and his position in society.
“[Ellie] has so much potential and so much talent that she shouldn’t waste because of him.”
What happened to Jenna’s character in You?
She is coerced into moving by Joe after he informs her of her older sister Delilah’s death and confesses to murdering their mutual acquaintance Henderson.
Unbeknownst to Ellie, Joe is aware Delilah was murdered by his then-girlfriend Love Quinn.
