Netflix Announces Wednesday Addams Live Action Series On A Wednesday

Tim Burton is bringing The Addams Family to Netflix.

The iconic director and streaming service unveiled plans for a live action series centered on Wednesday Addams, which was played by Christina Ricci in the 90s movie franchise.

Titled Wednesday, the new eight-episode comedy would focus on the daughter of Gomez and Morticia.

“The series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy,” the official plot description says. “Wednesday attempts 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 very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”

This will also mark Tim‘s first television directorial debut on an entire series.

The Addams Family has had multiple iterations – first in a live action television series in the 1970s before the movies came. Just recently, an animated movie was made as well.
