Netflix has shared a first look at its Addams Family spinoff series, Wednesday during the first day of its Geeked Week showcase.
The 30 second trailer doesn’t give away much but does reveal Jenna Ortega as Wednesday herself, complete with the iconic pigtails and black and white polka dot dress. As you’d expect, she accompanies a sparse soundtrack with some finger-clicks.
Thing (the disembodied hand) also appears in the trailer of what Netflix called « a twisted new series from the mind of Tim Burton », later adding that it’s « coming soon ».

Alongside Ortega in the leading role, Wednesday also includes Luis Guzman as Gomez Addams and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addamsalongside Hunter Doohan, Georgie Farmer, and more.
Directed by Burton – who’s previously delivered classics including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and more – the series will run for eight episodes and follows Wednesday as she attends Nevermore Academy.
The coming of age story sees Wednesday learn to control her psychic powers, solve a mystery involving her marvelously mysterious parents, and deal with a number of murderous monsters too.

It was first announced in February last year but Netflix has said very little since outside of the slow but sure revealings of cast members.
With this first look revealing the series is « coming soon » though (and it was originally announced as a 2022 release), we should start finding out more and more about Wednesday before long.
