Does the Addams daughter have more mayhem in her future?
Wednesday–the spinoff of the TV classic The Addams Family–is now streaming on Netflix to strong reviews and, while the streamer has not yet officially renewed the show for a second season, the people behind the cameras are planning for the best case scenario.
Showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar–in a recent interview with TV Line–said they’re looking forward to not only delving further into the life of the title character, but that of her “creepy and kooky” family, as well.
“We felt we just touched the surface with those characters,” Millar said. “And the actors are so amazing in those roles. Catherine (Zeta-Jones) is an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path outside the family is important.”
The plans the storytellers are tossing back and forth will “focus the show on Wednesday,” while still “definitely featuring the family as we did this season in a couple of episodes.” That is, of course, they added, “if we were to get a second season.” As always, stay tuned.
Wednesday–also led by executive producer and director Tim Burton–stars Jenna Ortega in the title role as she enters Nevermore Academy and “attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago,” according to the synopsis.
Joining Ortega and Zeta-Jones in the cast are Luis Guzman as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, George Burcea as Lurch, Victor Dorobantu as the disembodied Thing and Christina Ricci (who played Wednesday on the big screen) as Marilyn Thornhill.
