In a word, fantastic describes the just-released trailer for Tim Burton’s eagerly awaited television series Wednesday.
According to Netflix, the forthcoming comedy-horror is a “sleuthing, supernaturally tinged mystery documenting Wednesday Addams’ (Jenna Ortega) years as a student at Nevermore Academy,” promising mayhem, murder, and mystery. The show centers on Wednesday as she attempts to control her developing psychic gift, stop a horrific killing spree that has scared the neighborhood, and solve the murder mystery that ensnared her parents 25 years ago.” Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán also appear as Morticia and Gomez Addams (perfect casting!).
It’s likely that Wednesday will also make an effort to defeat ALGEBRA, the biggest evil of them all. When will Wednesday be available on Netflix? What is known is listed below.
