Call it a marketing ploy, but it sure seems like Netflix’s upcoming “The Addams Family” spinoff series “Wednesday” knows their audience. The first television series from Tim Burton, this will be a tale about Gomez and Mortita’s daughter as a high school student.
Wednesday is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting 16-year-old Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Season One will follow Wednesday as she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
Jenna Ortega stars as the title character, Catherine Zeta-Jones plays Mortitia, with Luis Guzmán plays Gomez. Other cast members include Gwendoline Christie, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Georgie Farmer, Naomi Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, and Christina Ricci in a mystery role.
We still don’t have a likely release date yet, but we will be getting a series first look during Netflix’s Geeked Week.
We’ll let you know what else we hear about “Wednesday.”
