Netflix has begun to market Tim Burton‘s live action series “Wednesday” with an official Twitter account for Wednesday Addams – @WednesdayAddams – and this afternoon the account has tweeted out a short promotional video featuring another beloved character from the world of The Addams Family – Thing. He teases that our first-look is coming real soon…
The first footage from “Wednesday” will arrive during Netflix’s “Geeked Week” next week, specifically expected on Monday, June 6, 2022. The series will then premiere this Fall.
“Geeked Week 2022” runs from June 6-10, 2022.
Jenna Ortega (Scream, X) is playing Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton‘s upcoming live action Netflix series “Wednesday,” which is based on the “Addams Family” property.
Alongside Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Addams, Luis Guzmán is Gomez and Catherine Zeta-Jones is Morticia in the upcoming series. Christina Ricci will also appear in the show.
“Wednesday” is described as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.” It’s said to follow…
“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.”
Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (“Smallville”) are writing and showrunning. Burton is directing.
Wednesday Addams has most recently been played by Chloë Grace Moretz in 2019’s animated movie, and earlier in live-action by Lisa Loring on TV and Christina Ricci in the films.
