I told my follower (Serana) to wait. But this is different. I told her to go somewhere and wait so it will activate the enemies. Well it did and I killed them. But Serana seems to be not following me anymore. I can't tell her to follow me. And she is constantly in a squatting position. The only thing I can do is tell her to wait somewhere else to move her. And I can't part ways because I'm doing a main quest and she has to be there. Can anybody give me a tip on what to do?

Additionally, if she's stuck in her combat pose, she may be able to be reset through either knocking her around a bit with the Unrelenting Force shout, by using a powerful Calm spell on her, or else by using (on the PC version) the
This means that you have a bug, unfortunately this is a common bug and it has happened to me before too, you have to load up a save that is before the start of the ENTIRE questline. However if on PC you can find a script code to skip that mission
You need to either talk to her and tell her to follow, or continue with the quest and when it finishes, then you can get her back again.
My Serana was bugged in quat position and i tried the console tips but it didn`t work. After some time i killed her, she went wounded then i shouted her with unrelenting force and then she debugged! try that!
