The Addams Family daughter is definitely “mysterious and spooky”.
Wednesday–the upcoming Netflix series based on the iconic ’60s TV series The Addams Family–will hit the streamer sometime in the fourth quarter of the year (Halloween, perhaps?). And a new featurette was dropped this week that gives fans the best insight yet into the character–from the horse’s mouth herself, Jenna Ortega.
Check out the video–courtesy of Collider–on this page, and listen as Ortega, director Tim Burton and series creators and showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar all give their take on the new series and discuss what makes Wednesday tick.
The eight-episode series also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, George Burcea as Lurch, Victor Dorobantu as the disembodied (and handy) Thing and Christina Ricci in a mystery role.
The show follows the Addams daughter at Nevermore Academy, where she “attempts to master her emerging psychic abilities, thwart a monstrous killing spree and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years before,” according to the synopsis.
