Netflix has released a trailer for their new Wednesday Addams series.

On Wednesday, Netflix released the first trailer for their new show, based on the iconic Addams Family character.

The upcoming comedy-horror series reimagines Wednesday as a teen who arrives at the appropriately eerie Nevermore Academy after being expelled from her eighth school in five years due to a grisly piranha-related incident.

We also see footage of the character playing cello, learning to fence, getting to know her classmates, and attending a school dance where blood appears to rain down from the ceiling in the newly-released clip (released, fittingly, on Wednesday).

“Little did I know, I’d be stepping into a nightmare, full of mystery, mayhem, and murder,” says Wednesday in voiceover, before adding, “I think I’m going to love it here.”

Wednesday is directed by Tim Burton, best known for his work on Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Edward Scissorhands, and stars Luis Guzmán and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Wednesday’s parents, Gomez and Morticia Addams.

The teaser concludes with the teenager clicking twice, a nod to the iconic theme music from the original sitcom.

Lisa Loring originated the role of Wednesday Addams in the 1960s, and Christina Ricci played the character twice on screen, including in the cult classic Addams Family Values.

Christina, surprisingly, is also set to appear in the new series, though details about her character are still unknown.

Jenna appeared in Jane the Virgin, You, and the recent Scream revival before landing the role of Wednesday.

Wednesday’s release date has yet to be announced, but it is expected later in 2022. Fingers crossed it arrives in time for Halloween…
