Netflix’s ‘Wednesday’ Teaser: Jenna Ortega Makes Addams Family Debut, With Tim Burton On Board

Jenna Ortega makes an impressive debut

Netflix has released the teaser for Wednesday, an all-new show focusing on the famous daughter of the spooky Addams Family. The show stars Jenna Ortega in the titular role. Ortega is best-known for her roles in You and Scream 5. Let’s read more about the character and the show below.

About Wednesday


While the teaser is just an introduction to Wednesday and the disembodied hand servant (played by Victor Dorobantu), we do know the synopsis. Wednesday has the character attending a boarding school named Nevermore Academy, the place where she starts developing psychic powers. But soon enough, things start going sideways and she has to investigate a series of supernatural murders. Things turn extra sour when her own family’s history is thrown into the mix.

It is clear that Netflix is taking a dark turn with the series, and not the spooky sitcom most of watched, from 1991. Christina Ricci played the character, both in the show and the movies that followed, and brought major recognition to the character. Out of all the members in the Addams household, Wednesday was the most sweet-natured. It is yet to be seen how she will be depicted by Ortega.

The Cast and Release Date


Aside from Ortega, the series also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzman as Gomez, and George Burcea as Lurch. Other stars include Jamie McShane, Riki Lindhome, Percy Hynes White, Thora Birch, Gwendoline Christie, Joy Sunday, Percy Hynes White, Emma Myers, Naomi Ogaway, Georgie Farmer, and Moosa Mostafa. But one exciting part is that Ricci will also make an appearance on the show, even though we don’t know the role she will be playing.

The show will have Tim Burton as executive producer, and director on a majority of episodes.

As for the release date, we are yet to see as Netflix only teased with a ‘Coming Soon.’
