The trailer starts with Wednesday Addams’ dark silhouette moving through a high school hallway which is quite chirpy and happening with all the kids getting excited for their day ahead. 

The trailer reveals the unidentified world of Wednesday with Burton’s eyes. It shows the life of a little girl, an outcast who never really had friends or family, hopping from school to school with no connections.

It shows that the young girl seems to be an easy target for bullies who can’t accept people who look and act differently from everybody else.

Turns out, all the children they take in already have some kind of traumatic experience behind them and Wednesday is just like any other child.

The trailer hints that the girl was expelled from her latest school for a hideous reason of releasing flesh eating fishes into the school swimming pool. 

Being rejected from the traditional schooling, Wednesday gets sent to the Nevermore Academy where the OG Addams met each other for the first time.

The thought being that it’s the perfect place for an Addams, Wednesday continues to get through her education between dark and gloomy kids.

What is the Series Going to be About?

The first season of Wednesday is a coming-of-age series with all the hallmarks of what you’ve come to expect from a Netflix show.

Full of fantasy, horror, mystery and, yes, comedy (and everything in between), it’s sure to keep you entertained for 8 episodes – or however long we’re allowed on Netflix.

According to the official synopsis the show will follow the chronicles of Wednesday, a girl with an emerging psychic ability and how she interacts with the world around her.

Throughout the series we see how she deals with different challenges by using her powers to solve mysteries along with managing a normal life as everyone in her school is sailing through life crises. 

A refreshing take on the iconic series and film have started to be a trend for most filmmakers but this one is quite hitting the feels with the pitch perfect star cast and a unique side of the family that needs to be brought out in light.

While all of us wait for the thrilling series to hit the screens, it’ll be a nice idea to brush up on the previous feature film available to stream on Netflix.
