The Addams Family has had numerous incarnations over the years. From the 1960s TV series to the high-budget films of the 1990s to a 2010 Broadway musical. Most recently, two eccentric CG-animated pictures, each of which has changed to reflect—or, somewhat, stray from—the social conventions of the moment. The family’s macabre bonus vivant home in the brand-new Netflix series Wednesday, centered on the family’s menacing lone daughter, resembles Charles Addams’ original illustration from The New Yorker.
You’ll see Catherine Zeta-Jones as the matriarch Morticia, Luis Guzmán as the head of the family Gomez, Jenna Ortega as the titular Wednesday, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, the unfortunate sibling. Executive producing and directing four of the eight episodes, Tim Burton contributed to the series.’
The Netflix original series Wednesday not only presents the heroine in a novel way but by having her investigate. A peculiar supernatural murder case while navigating the Nevermore Academy, a particular school for outcasts. But it also exposes her interactions with her family in novel ways. With Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, the showrunners Miles Millar and Alfred Gough update the rest of Wednesday’s varied Addams Family brood. Audiences received their first glimpse of Ortega as the older Wednesday in a trailer back in June. The cast portrays the character from a different angle.
Netflix debuted the first full trailer for the newest season of the dark fantasy drama on Wednesday, and it will not disappoint. That said, the clip does not precisely reveal much about the new season’s plot, which will premiere on October 26. does give us a few more glimpses at Wednesday, the premiere of a creepy serial killer, and other shows in a TV world that are finally giving her the respect she deserves.
Here’s the new trailer:
While the film alludes to Wednesday’s power, her main mission in this world is finding the girl who was lost in the woods at the end of the last season. As with many aspects of the show, that remains a mystery.
The evil woman (or men?) that appears on Wednesday’s doorstep in the trailer have revealed to be Lurch. This is a reminder of how much the show has evolved since its start in 2011. The film had Lurch coming after Wednesday to collect his body, and instead, she served as Lurch’s dance partner. They danced around each other. But the relationship between Wednesday and Lurch is more mature in this new season. Especially considering they’re both in charge of the Addams Family. Hence, they have a whole lot to say about each other.
Wednesday’s relationship with her parents is also a different one. The mother, a sex-obsessed nun obsessed with her daughter’s sexual desirability turns Wednesday’s mom into an enslaved person. But when the series begin, Wednesday isn’t too attached to her family. While her family in the movie is awkward, the show more accurately portrays the family’s messed-up bond by giving us a glimpse of Wednesday and her father’s (Chris Parnell) overbearing dynamic.
Wednesday’s relationship with Gomez, on the other hand, is significantly different than that of the film. During the film, Gomez is about to get married. Hence, Wednesday scatters his wedding invites to all the wrong people. This shows up as their self-absorbed, awful selves at the wedding.
