The new Wednesday trailer features Christina Ricci and Uncle Fester

Wednesday is an 8-episode Netflix show. The live-action series is from Tim Burton and stars Jenna Ortega (Yes Day) as Wednesday with Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Victor Dorobantu as Thing, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams, and George Burcea as Lurch. Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Adams in the films from the 90s, is also set to appear as an entirely new character.

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, 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.

Jenna Ortega on this version of Wednesday Addams said “Wednesday is currently a teenager, and we’ve never seen her as a teenager before. Her snarky, snide remarks might not necessarily sound as charming when they’re coming from somebody who should probably know better than a 10-year-old girl. That was a balancing act. We didn’t want to make her sound like every other teenage girl, but we also didn’t want to make her too ignorant. And we’ve never seen her on screen this much. Any other time you’ve seen Wednesday, she’s been the one-liner, the end of a joke, she always hits it, and I think that’s what people really love about her. But in this show, every scene is Wednesday. There’s an opportunity to give her a bit more dimension, and she becomes a bit more of a real person, which I don’t think we’ve ever seen before.”

Hunter Doohan, Georgie Farmer, Moosa Mostafa, Emmy Myers, Naomi J. Ogawa, Joy Sunday, and Percy Hynes White will play some of Nevermore Academy’s supernatural students. Gwendoline Christie, Riki Lindhome, and Jamie McShane have been cast as members of Nevermore Academy’s faculty. Christie will play Principal Larissa Weems, Morticia’s former classmate who still has an axe to grind.

Mayhem, mystery and murder. WEDNESDAY, a twisted new series from the mind of Tim Burton, drops on Wednesday 23rd November 2022.
