It’s official guys! Netflix now has bought the rights to Tim Burton’s The Addams Family TV series and it’ll be called Wednesday. This is something that we revealed a while back, yet it’s now being officially confirmed by Netflix.
I’m not usually one to blow my own trumpet, but we did call this a while back. We reported that Netflix had got the rights to Tim Burton’s The Addams Family TV series a while back, and it’s now official.
This is just such good news because Netflix is the perfect place for this series which is going to be called Wednesday and will focus on Wednesday Addams and her life in boarding school. However, the rest of The Addams Family will be in the show.

Here’s what Netflix wrote about the show in their post on Twitter:

This sounds like the show will be totally up my street, and I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be hugely popular on the streaming service. The show is being written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar and will be directed by Burton. It’s described as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. That’s where she attempts to master her emerging 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.”
