When Netflix announced plans to make an Addams Family series, fans couldn’t wait to see it. It is with impatience that they waited to have a preview of the show. Well, netflix has finally unveiled a second teaser for Wednesday (“ wednesday » in VO). And the least we can say is that the series promises to be great with a Wednesday Addams in top form.
Wednesday in all its glory
With “Wednesday”, Netflix decided to explore a whole other side of the Addams family by featuring a now-teenage Wednesday Addams. The series also follows the young girl as she is transferred to Nevermore Academy and tries to adapt to her new environment and her new classmates. In parallel, Mercredi will investigate a series of strange murders that terrorize the city. Suffice to say that the eldest of the Addams family will have fun in this dark environment full of mystery.
A dark but humorous atmosphere
Netflix has called on the genius of Tim Burton to direct “Wednesday” and make it a little gothic nugget as the director knows how to do so well. Bet succeeded, since the first teaser of the series reveals a deliciously dark universe and atmosphere. Dark humor is also there: the video starts off strong with a scene where Wednesday releases hungry piranhas into a swimming pool full of people. The fans of the girl are in any case delighted to find her.
See you on Netflix this fall!
It’s not yet clear when exactly “Wednesday” is coming to Netflix, but the streaming giant promises it will be sometime this fall. Something to titillate those who can’t wait any longer. It must be said that the last time we saw the Addams family in live action was in 1991 and 1993: Wednesday was then camped by the young and talented Christina Ricci.
In the Netflix series, the character is played by Jenna Ortega, who we have already seen in Scream 2022 and who seems perfectly cut out for the role. The rest of the family is camped by Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia), Luis Guzman (Gomez) and Isaac Ordonez (Pugsley). The series will also see the participation of Gwendoline Christie in the role of Larissa Weems, principal of the Nevermore Academy and sworn enemy of Morticia Addams.
Looking forward to this fall to finally find all these little people!
