Especially after Jenna's on-screen romance with Tyler (played by Hunter Doohan) unraveled following the grim discovery that he was actually the monstrous hyde tormenting the students at Nevermore. So naturally, in the wait time to find out if Tyler and Wednesday's paths ever cross again, Jenna's actual relationship status has piqued a lot of interest.

Is Jenna Ortega single?

While we count down the days until we return to Nevermore and binge-watch all of Jenna Ortega's other TV shows and movies, the actress has finally shared an update on her relationship status.

While some fans were desperately searching 'is Jenna Ortega married?' on the web after she previously joked about having a 'wife' in an with TV Insider, saying of her co-star Gwendoline Christie (aka Principal Weems): "Thank you very much, woman. My woman. I love you. Sorry, that might be disrespectful, but that is my nickname for her because she’s my wife." Fans can now officially rest assured, that Jenna Ortega is definitely not married—in fact, she's single!

On March 7, 2023, Jenna sat down with Elle and confirmed that she's not currently dating anyone, adding that the idea of a relationship right now 'stresses' her out.

She said: "Maybe I am too obsessed with my work, but the idea of relationships stresses me out," before candidly adding, "also being that vulnerable with someone and having to get to know someone that well and having someone see you for all that you are... My brain knows that I don’t need to think about that right now."

Jenna also revealed that she's not really a fan of romantic storylines, "I hate being goo-goo gaga over a boy. I think it’s secretly a pride thing. It's a problem with a lot of female characters that a lot of them are guy oriented or what they're expressing or emoting is based on a guy's position and a guy's story"—so, don't get your hopes up about seeing her in a rom-com anytime soon.

As for Jenna's past relationships, the Scream 6 actress has actually not been confirmed to be dating anyone during her career as of yet—though she has been caught up in a few rumors...

Who has Jenna Ortega dated?

As mentioned, none of the Jenna Ortega relationship rumors have ever been confirmed, though she has been linked to some notable names in the last few years...

Jenna Ortega and Asher Angel

In October 2018, Jenna was linked to Shazam! actor Asher Angel, with the pair attending the premiere of Venom together, before also rocking up to the Just Jared Halloween party.

The duo dressed up as the then-engaged Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, which is a couple-costume if ever we saw one, though neither commented on the speculation.

Jenna Ortega and Jacob Sartorius

Jenna was also linked to Jacob Sartorius in 2017 after she featured in his music video for "Chapstick" where the pair shared an on-screen kiss—but again nothing was ever confirmed.

In fact, Jenna went on to debunk all of the internet's rumors concerning her love life, saying on the podcast "Just Between Us" in 2019: "According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them."  

So, there you go—apart from her childhood crush on former President Barrack Obama (which she revealed on Deadline's podcast "20 Questions"), that's all the intel we've got on her dating life!
