Netflix has just revealed the first look at the Addams Family that are featured in their upcoming spin-off series “Wednesday,” featuring Jenna Ortega as Wednesday, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley.
Franchise star Christina Ricci will star as a yet-to-be-named character. “Game of Thrones” actress Gwendoline Christie will play the role of “Larissa Weems,” the principal of Nevermore Academy. The cast also includes Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Hunter Doohan, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, Naomi J. Ogawa, Percy Hynes White, Jamie McShane, Thora Birch, and Riki Lindhome.
“Wednesday” is described as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s 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 while navigating her new and very tangled relationships.”
Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (“Smallville”) are writing and serving as showrunners, with Tim Burton directing.
