‘Wednesday’ Trailer twisted by Netflix: Brings The Addams Family Back Together

The chokehold being tightened The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix series “Wednesday” has been released, continuing the Halloween tradition of wearing Wednesday Addams costumes.

The Addams Family is back. It’s creepy, quirky, and as deliciously macabre as ever, but this time it’s been redesigned to put the titular and slightly murderous daughter at its heart.  Jenna Ortega, who played the character in the 1991 films “The Addams Family” and “Addams Family Values,” strides boldly into the coiled braids formerly worn by Christina Ricci.

Beginning with Wednesday being expelled from her school after happily tossing two bags of piranhas into a squad of water polo players into a pool, the two-minute clip shows Wednesday being punished. She eventually receives a scholarship to Nevermore, a new school that her parents Morticia and Gomez Addams, who are portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman in this film, once attended.

According to the official synopsis, the show will follow Wednesday as she “attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorised 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.”

In the trailer, we catch glimpses of what the titular goth will get up to as she dances, fences, and generally causes blood-soaked mayhem while making an “attempt at being social” in her new surroundings. The trailer for Ortega’s Wednesday begins, “Little did I realise I’d be heading into a nightmare – filled of intrigue, mayhem, and murder.” “I believe I will adore it here,” Four of the eight episodes of the series will be directed by Tim Burton, and Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will serve as showrunners.
