The very first teaser trailer for the upcoming Wednesday Netflix series has been released, and we here at Small Screen really cannot wait to watch this show. You can check out the new teaser trailer over on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
This series, which comes from director, Tim Burton, is easily our most anticipated series of the year. When it was revealed that Tim Burton would be making his first ever series, I was very intrigued. It was then revealed that it would be a take on The Addams Family, and I thought that it was the perfect fit.
I am a bit amazed that this is Burton’s first-ever stab at adapting The Addams Family, but I think it’s the perfect medium for him. Netflix ended up getting the streaming rights to the new series after a hard-fought bidding war for the series.
Wednesday’s series has released its first teaser trailer
The series will star Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, and she’ll be joined by the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones who will appear throughout the series as Morticia, Wednesday’s mother. Victor Dorobantu will play Thing, the severed hand and servant. George Burcea will play Lurch, the family’s manservant. Isaac Ordonez will play Gomez and Morticia’s son, Pugsley.
Then we have Luis Guzmán, who will guest star as Gomez, Wednesday’s father. Other actors that have been cast in as-yet-unannounced roles include Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Emma Myers, Percy Hynes White, Moosa Mostafa, Thora Birch, Hunter Doohan, Riki Lindhome, Joy Sunday, Georgie Farmer, and Naomi Ogawa.
Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in the early ’90s films The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, will also appear in an undisclosed role. That’s exciting!
Moreover, this new teaser revealed that the series would be released this fall (autumn for those of you reading this in the United Kingdom). So we’re not going to have to wait very long for it!
