Looks like Wednesday’s coming-out party will be around Halloween. How spooky.
Netflix this week said Tim Burton’s vision for the grown-up Addams Family’s daughter will hit the small screen this fall–perhaps in October?–and unveiled a new poster as part of the promotion. Check out the “ooky” artwork–courtesy of collider.com–on this page.
The eight-episode Wednesday series–helmed by Burton with scripts from Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, Kayla Alpert and April Blair–is scored by award-winning composer Danny Elfman.
The show stars Jenna Ortega in the titular role, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, George Burcea as Lurch, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valerie Kinbott, Jamie McShane as Sheriff Donovan Galpin, Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems and Christina Ricci (who played Wednesday on the Silver Screen) in an undisclosed role.
Based on the classic cartoons of Charles Addams, Wednesday is described as a “sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy,” according to the synopsis.
Wednesday tries 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 tangled relationships at Nevermore.”
