A much-anticipated Addams Family series is debuting on Netflix this week.
On Wednesday, November 23, the streaming service will release Tim Burton’s Wednesday. The show is an eight-episode series described as a coming-of-age comedy that will be a sleuthing, supernaturally-infused mystery. The live-action series will be led by Jenna Ortega (Yes Day) in her first major TV project as the titular lead, along with Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Victor Dorobantu as Thing, as well as Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams, Fred Armisen as Fester, and George Burcea as Lurch. In addition, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Christina Ricci is also set to appear as an entirely new character. She famously portrayed Wednesday Addams in the early 90s.
“The series will chart the titular heroine’s years as a student at the peculiar Nevermore Academy as she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability,” reads the synopsis, “While also thwarting a monstrous killing spree terrorizing the local town and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships of the strange and diverse student body.”
Burton (Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride) executive produced and directed Wednesday in his television directorial debut. The acclaimed filmmaker should have written and produced an animated Addams Family film for Illumination Entertainment. However, the project would go on to eventually turn into 2019’s The Addams Family, which was directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan.
