WEDNESDAY will star Jenna Ortega in the title role and feature Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci (yes!), and more. The series will be a mystery story with supernatural elements, following Wednesday as a student at Nevermore Academy.
The Addams Family was created by cartoonist Charles Addams and follows a bizarre, eccentric, macabre, and close-knit family. They originally debuted in the 1930s before later being adapted into a tv series in the 1960s. They would later go on to become a staple of pop culture, with Christina Ricci’s portrayal of Wednesday Addams being one of the most memorable.
WEDNESDAY is reportedly coming soon to Netflix, though there is no official release date currently.
