Addams Family has appeared in various forms, including a comic strip, a 1960s sitcom, and a Tony-nominated musical. The spooky family will come to life this fall in the upcoming spinoff series “Wednesday.” Netflix recently released its first official teaser trailer.
The series, created by Tim Burton, stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday, the twisted teenage daughter of Morticia and Gomez Addams. In the spin-off, Wednesday enrolls at Nevermore Academy where she works to master her new psychic abilities and solve a murder case tied to her family’s past. “Little did I know that I’d be stepping into a nightmare,” Ortega says in the trailer.
“Full of mystery, mayhem and murder. I think I’m going to love it here.”
The other members of the Addams Family are Wednesday’s brother Pugsley, played by Isaac Ordonez, Morticia, played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Gomez, played by Luis Guzmán. Thing, played by Victor Dorobantu, is a disembodied hand servant, and Lurch, played by George Burcea, is a servant.
Along with Riki Lindhome, Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Naomi J Ogawa, and Moosa Mostafa also star. Marilyn Thornhill, played by Christina Ricci, who is best known for playing Wednesday in the 1990s movie series, will make a special appearance. The series co-showrunners, writers, and executive producers are Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.
Four of the eight episodes are executive produced and directed by Tim Burton, with James Marshall and Gandja Monteiro serving as additional directors. Additionally serving as executive producers are Steve Stark, Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman, and Gail Berman. MGM Television produces “Wednesday” for Netflix.
