Netflix’s ‘Wednesday’ Addams Family trailer is finally here, and it looks frighteningly good

Get those snapping fingers ready, because Netflix’s Wednesday Series looks killer.

Directed by Tim Burton and starring rising horror darling Jenna Ortega Addams family Spinoff/reboot/reimagining (whatever they call these things these days) has it all: tight twisted pigtails, dead eyes, and gleefully morbid one-liners. The first teaser shows our sinister icon standing up for her brother with a deadly prank involving a couple of swim team jocks and a few bags of piranhas.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán play Wednesday’s devoted parents, sinfully sensual Morticia and consummate wife-type Gomez. Isaac Ordonez plays Wednesday’s less famous brother, Pugsley. (Depending on the iteration, the relative ages of the siblings change, but Wednesday was usually the younger of the two.)

Here as in Values ​​of the Addams Family, let’s meet Wednesday as she faces the quirks and challenges of a new world far from her family – in this case, Nevermore Academy. (Luckily for everyone involved, it doesn’t look like this place hosts an annual Thanksgiving pageant.) Other actors available for the chaos to come include Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci — who, for many, is the most memorable Wednesday Addams we have ever seen.

Lisa Loring played the original Wednesday Addams in the 1960s TV series, which made the character appear younger and a little more innocent than modern iterations. But the tougher touchstone for most young viewers is probably Ricci, who gave the character her unnerving poignancy in the 1991s Addams family Film adaptation and its masterful sequel, 1993 Values ​​of the Addams Family. Other cast members, including Debi Derryberry and Chloe Grace Moretz, have voiced the character in animated productions.

Wednesday Addams Showrunners might have almost sabotaged the goodwill for their own project by calling the show an “eight-hour Tim Burton movie” — a tired sort of cover-up that sounds more tedious than novel in the year of our Lord 2022 — but this teaser should Restore fan faith.

If nothing else Wednesday seems like the perfect sort of fall release — a little bit campy, a little bit creepy, and exquisitely evil in its sensibilities. At this point, the only open question is what on earth could be up with Uncle Fester in this series, which has kept the character out of all of its promotional materials, aside from this ominous quote from showrunner Alfred Gough: “We have no comment to Uncle Fester.”

sound the alarm, folks; To borrow from a certain horror franchise that just came back with a revival of its own, there might be something wrong with Fester.
