Wednesday Addams is finally getting her chance to shine! (Metaphorically, since she’s not a fan of the sun or the spotlight.) Netflix has ordered an eight-episode series on the eldest Addams child that features Wednesday as we’ve never seen her before.
According to a press release from Netflix, the young-adult series Wednesday will follow the titular character as she evolves from “everyone’s favorite maiden of the macabre graduate into a full fledged leading lady.” A student at the peculiar Nevermore, 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 with the strange and diverse student body! A coming-of-age series combined with a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery? Count us in!
Al Gough and Miles Millar created the series — which has been in development since October — and will serve as showrunners and executive producers. Tim Burton has signed on direct and executive produce. We’ll be eagerly awaiting the reveal of the actor portraying the iconic goth as production progresses and looking out for some more women holding down things behind the camera. We can’t wait for things to get spooky!
