Netflix, the self-proclaimed home for all things entertainment, is premiering its second annual Geeked Week, and our first big teaser to come out of it is Wednesday. It is an upcoming American horror-comedy television series based on the character Wednesday Addams of The Addams Family. *Snap snap*

From the woefully gloomy imagination of Tim Burton comes Wednesday, a twisted new series arriving soon on Netflix. Wednesday boasts a star-studded cast, including Jenna Ortega in the title role. She is cast alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones as her mother, Morticia Addams, and Luis Guzmán as her father, Gomez Addams. You can also expect Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci and more popping up in the series. 

Wednesday is described as a sleuthing, supernaturally-infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. This is quite a departure from the family-centered plot lines and themes that we have seen in previous Addams Family installments.

Wednesday Addams has always held a special place in my little misfit heart, and Tim Burton has always been my childhood obsession, so I’m excited to see more! Unfortunately, we will have to be in mourning for a while longer because today’s teaser still does not have a definite release date. We can expect to see it sometime this year, hopefully in time for Halloween. 

Geeked Week 2022 is a free five-day virtual event celebrating Netflix’s genre series, films and games that runs June 6-10 across all your favorite platforms. We expect to see tons of exclusive news, new trailers, celebrity appearances, etc.
