Wednesday Trailer: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jenna Ortega on the Netflix show

The comedy series reimagines the high school years of Wednesday Addams, played by Jenna Ortega, with guest starring OG Wednesday Christina Ricci.

Ah, mothers and daughters. Add a little creepy aesthetic, a few wacky sensibilities, and the mother-daughter relationship at the core of The Addams Family gets a little…weird.

The highly anticipated trailer for “Wednesday,” Alfred Gough and Miles Millar’s reimagining of the legendary Addams Family for Netflix, revolves around a Wednesday teenage girl (Jenna Ortega) who tries to solve many mysteries, including how to create her own Identity beyond the shadows can be cemented by her always glamorous mother, Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones).

“The relationship that carries through the season is really Wednesday’s relationship with Morticia,” Gough told Vanity Fair. “How do you step out of the shadow of a mother as glamorous as Morticia?”

And as Morticia and husband Gomez (Luis Guzmán) continue their sensual public displays of love, Wednesday can only roll her eyes and find new ways to playfully torment her younger brother Pugsley (Isaac Ordonez).

“Wednesday isn’t afraid of sharks or creepy crawlies or anything, but she’s afraid of emotions,” continued former Smallville creator Gough. “Their apparent affection drives Wednesday insane.”

Wednesday is also tasked with using her burgeoning psychic abilities to solve a serial killer case at Nevermore Academy High School and uncover the murder mystery that involved her parents 25 years ago.

Tim Burton, who is known to have handed in the direction of the 1991 film The Addams Family, is now directing four of the eight episodes of Wednesday and serving as executive producer on the series. Four-time Academy Award winner and frequent Burton collaborator Colleen Atwood is hired as costume designer for the Addams clan’s legendary gothic looks.

“The goal of the show was to make it an eight-hour Tim Burton movie,” Millar explained. “That was something that was very important to the show — that it didn’t feel like a remake or reboot. It’s something that lives in the Venn diagram of what happened before, but it’s its own thing. It doesn’t try to be the movies or TV show of the ’60s. That was very important to us and very important to Tim.”

The cast also includes Victor Dorobantu as Thing and George Burcea as Lurch, but audiences will have to wait to see who the big reveal for Uncle Fester is. Wednesday also keeps it all in The Addams Family, with Christina Ricci (who played Wednesday in the ’90s movies) returning to the franchise as a series regular. Gwendoline Christie, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Georgie Farmer, Naomi Ogawa and Moosa Mostafa complete the cast.

According to the official synopsis, “Wednesday” is a detective, supernaturally imbued mystery that chronicles 16-year-old Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. The first season follows Wednesday as she attempts to master her nascent psychic abilities, foil a monstrous rampage that has been terrorizing the local town, and solve the murder mystery that implicated her parents 25 years ago – all as she navigates her new and very confused relationships with Nevermore.

Gandja Monteiro and James Marshall will co-direct the eight-episode series alongside Edward Scissorhands visionary Burton.
