Netflix has announced that Wednesday Addams will get her own spinoff in a new live-action series from Tim Burton. The mysterious and spooky daughter of Morticia and Gomez has been a breakout star since the comic series was first adapted for television.
Titled Wednesday, the coming-of-age comedy, written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar and to be directed by Burton, is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. That’s where she 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.
Netflix has put together a delightful Wednesday supercut from the films:
And don’t forget The Addams Family original series and OG Wednesday Lisa Loring cutting a rug like nobody’s business:
