She’s creepy, and she’s kooky — definitely mysterious and most certainly spooky. But she’s not ooky! On Friday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed the remainder of the cast for Netflix’s Wednesday series. 

Inspired by The Addams Family and helmed by Tim BurtonWednesday follows the titular Wednesday Addams (Jenna Ortega) as a student at Nevermore Academy.

Described as a “sleuthing, supernaturally-infused mystery,” we’ll see Wednesday attempt to hone her 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.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán were previously announced as Wednesday’s parents, Morticia and Gomez Addams. The rest of the cast is as follows: 

 Thora Birch plays Tamara Novak. “Wednesday’s dorm mother and the only ‘Normie’ on staff at Nevermore Academy with a focus on all things botanical.”

Riki Lindhome portrays Dr. Valerie Kinbott. “A local therapist in the sleepy town of Jericho who takes a particular interest in her newest patient Wednesday Addams.”

Jamie McShane takes on Sheriff Donovan Galpin. “Born and bred in Jericho, this Sheriff has always had an issue with Nevermore Academy and a vendetta against former student Gomez Addams.”

Hunter Doohan is Tyler Galpin. “A townie who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Wednesday Addams. Tyler has a troubled relationship with his father, the local sheriff.”

Georgie Farmer plays Ajax Petropolus. “A student at Nevermore Academy who also happens to be a Gorgon. Awkward and shy, Ajax is anxious about looking anyone in the eye.”

Moosa Mostafa portrays Eugene Otinger. “One of Nevermore Academy’s quirkiest students and president of the school’s bee-keeping club.”

Emma Myers takes on Enid Sinclair. “She is Wednesday’s sunny and colorful Californian roommate at Nevermore Academy.  Enid hails from a pack of San Francisco Werewolves.”

Naomi J. Ogawa is Yoko Tanaka. “A vampire with Harajuku-inspired Goth flair and one of the cool kids at Nevermore Academy.”

Joy Sunday portrays Bianca Barclay. “One of Nevermore Academy’s most popular students, Bianca descends from a long line of Sirens with a mesmerizing power to persuade.”

Percy Hynes White plays Xavier Thorpe. “A charismatic and supernaturally artistic Nevermore Academy student, who comes from wealth thanks to his celebrity psychic father.”

The first season of Wednesday boasts eight episodes. Burton executive produces and directs it. Al Gough and Miles Millar, known for their work on Smallville, are the series’ writers. 

Surprisingly, this is Burton’s first Addam’s Family project. 1993’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, produced by Burton, drew inspiration from the Gothic family created by cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938. 

There’s no word yet regarding a premiere date for Wednesday

I, for one, am stoked to see Burton take on this property. The premise is certainly in his wheelhouse. Bring it on!
