‘Wednesday’ is a Netflix series from Tim Burton

Wednesday will be directed by Tim Burton and consists of eight episodes to start. Netflix describes it as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy,”

“Wednesday attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore,” the logline teases.

In addition to Ortega, Deadline reports that the series will feature names such as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Christina Ricci, Luis Guzmán, Gwendoline Christie, and Hunter Doohan, among others.

In the teaser for Wednesday, Ortega appears as the black-clad, pigtail-wearing Addams Family character while eerie music plays in the background. Dressed in a black and white polka dot dress with a white collar, she does a creepy walk toward the screen before being joined by Thing, the family’s “hand servant.” The screen then cuts to black to the sound of those iconic finger snaps.

Although the teaser does not provide the release date for Wednesday, it promises that the show is “coming soon.” Check it out below.
