Wednesday teaser, photos, release updates, cast, synopsis and more


Famed filmmaker Tim Burton will be making his television debut with a series inspired by Wednesday Addams, with Jenna Ortega playing the title role.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Christina Ricci‘s portrayal of the character is the most well-known today. However, plenty of other actresses have played Wednesday ever since she was introduced in the 1964 original series, including Lisa Loring, Noelle Von Sonn, Nicole Fugere, Krysta Rodriguez, Rachel Potter, Lauren Revere, Melissa Hunter, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Cindy Henderson, Debi Derryberry and Chloë Grace Moretz.

But we’re just as excited to see what Jenna Ortega is going to bring to the role as the actress has been having a real breakout as of late with movies like Scream and X under her belt.

If you’re hankering for details about the show, then look no further. Without further ado, here is what we know so far about Wednesday.

Wednesday release date updates

We know that Wednesday is going to be released this fall on Netflix! There is not an official release date yet, but given the nature of the show I think we can safely assume either September or October.

Wednesday synopsis

Courtesy of Netflix:

The series is 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 — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.

Wednesday is coming this fall to Netflix.
