A TV show starring everyone’s favorite twisted little sister is in the works. Wednesday, a new live-action series based on the Addams Family character Wednesday Addams, is coming to Netflix shortly from the deliciously twisted imagination of Tim Burton.
The fictional Addams Family first appeared in cartoon form in 1938, but today they are best recognized for their off-page appearances in the 1960s television series, the 1990s feature films starring Anjelica Huston (as Morticia Addams), Raul Juila (as Gomez), Christopher Lloyd (as Uncle Fester), Jimmy Workman (as Pugsley), and Yellowjackets star Christina Ricci (as Wednesday), and the 2019 animated film, in which Wednesday is
Now, 19-year-old Scream Queen-to-be Jenna Ortega will portray the dark, morbid teen in the upcoming live-action show.

The release date, story summary, cast list, and trailer for Wednesday are all included in the comprehensive information below.

Production Update for Wednesday
Production for the series got underway in Bucharest, Romania on September 13, 2021, and wrapped up on March 30, 2022. In addition, on March 21, 2022, Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the 1991 film and its 1993 sequel, was cast as a series regular, which is thrilling as it means that someone from the previous edition is making an appearance on the series.
Is there anything we can expect to happen on Wednesday?
Wednesday has been described as a coming-of-age drama, a supernatural thriller, a supernatural mystery, and a supernatural comedy. The first season, which consists of 8 episodes, depicts Wednesday Addams’ time spent as a student at evermore Academy. “Wednesday’s 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,” reads the official synopsis released by Netflix.
Cast of Wednesday
In May of 2021, Jenna Ortega was chosen to play the title role. She uploaded a selfie holding the pilot script to Instagram with the comment, “New chapter.” I pray I can do justice to Wednesday Addams. snap, snap“
A first glance at Jenna’s transformation into the character was posted by Netflix a little over a year later, and she looks terrifyingly unrecognizable as Wednesday Addams. Jenna can be seen in fresh photographs posted by Netflix with her hair in long braids and her distinctive Wednesday white collar, long sleeve black dress, startlingly pale skin, and apathetically gaunt look.
And Jenna’s transformation into the role is so lifelike it’s unsettling. So that’s the point, then, I take it?
Actors Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago) and Luis Guzmán (Narcos) have been hired as Morticia and Gomez Addams, respectively, in the upcoming film Addams Family Values. New cast members include Christina Ricci (“new character not an older version of Wednesday”), as well as Isaac Ordonez, Thora Birch, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Hunter Doohan, Georgie Farmer, Moosa Mostafa, Emma Myers, Naomi J. Ogawa, Joy Sunday, Percy Hynes White, Gwendoline Christie, and more.”
