The Addams Family is back in the upcoming Tim Burton-directed Netflix series Wednesday, and the official teaser trailer has just arrived online
Jenna Ortega stars as the title character, along with Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzman as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley.
According to an updated synopsis: After she’s expelled from her “normal” human high school over an incident involving piranhas (yes, you read that correctly), Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) is sent away to Nevermore Academy, a school for, shall we say, unique students. What she discovers there is a tantalizing, bloody murder mystery — and maybe, just maybe, a few friends as odd as she is.
Netflix also confirmed in a press release this week that Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) plays school administrator Larissa Weems, and Christina Ricci (who played Wednesday in the ’90s Addams Family films) plays Nevermore dorm mom Marilyn Thornhill.
Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville) are the writers and showrunners, while several episodes of the series are directed by Tim Burton (Batman, Batman Returns, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow).
Wednesday premieres on Netflix this fall.
