Addams Family portraits & new teaser revealed
Wednesday Addams is ready to bring all the mayhem. The show’s main teaser and new photos were released on August 17. Here’s a rundown of everything we know so far about Netflix’s Addams Family series.
This Halloween season, Wednesday is going to be a spooky treat. Jenna Ortega will play Wednesday Addams in the upcoming Netflix series, and she hasn’t lost any of her bite (literally). The primary trailer for the show, which was released on August 17, included new footage.
Wednesday, like the rest of her terrifying family members, was developed in the 1930s by cartoonist Charles Addams for drawings in The New Yorker. The Addams Family has been adapted into numerous media ventures throughout the years, notably the ’90s film franchise starring Christina Ricci as Wednesday. Wednesday was voiced by Chlo Grace Moretz in the 2019 animated film and its sequel.
While there have been numerous representations of the Addams Family, none have ever completely centered on Wednesday – until now. HollywodLife has all the latest information on Netflix’s Wednesday, including the release date, cast, and more.
Netflix revealed the main teaser on August 17. When Pugsley gets bullied at school, Wednesday plots her revenge. “The only person who gets to torture my brother is me,” Wednesday tells a group full of boys before dropping two bags of piranhas in the pool. Naturally, she gets expelled.
Wednesday is transported to Nevermore Academy, the place where her parents met. According to her mother, Morticia Addams, she will “finally” be among classmates who “get” her. She meets a lot of people along the road and eventually decides she likes Nevermore.
Wednesday’s first official teaser trailer was released on June 6 during Netflix’s Geeked Week. Fans got their first look at Jenna Ortega as the titular figure in the video and a newly released photo. Jenna’s characteristic braided pigtails and black polka dot dress with a white collar embody Wednesday. The thing also appears briefly on Wednesday’s left shoulder.
