Netflix Announces ‘Wednesday’ Premiere Date

Netflix puts a lot of marketing muscle behind it Wednesday, and hype it as one of their big fall premieres. The new show is an update of The Addams Family focused on the brood’s daughter, now a bit older than the version of the character that has typically appeared in The Addams Family films, cartoons and comics. It is also the first TV show directed by the director Tim Burton. (Smallville‘s Alfred Gough and Miles Millar serve as the series’ creators and showrunners.)

The show has been in the works for a while, but Netflix has finally just announced when you’ll be able to watch it. The show will premiere on streaming on November 23. Here’s new Wednesday Jenna Ortega talking about her character:

Wednesday is currently a teenager and we’ve never seen her as a teenager before. Her snarky, snide remarks might not necessarily sound as charming coming from someone who should probably know better than a 10-year-old girl. It was a balancing act. We didn’t want to make her sound like every other teenage girl, but we also didn’t want to make her too ignorant. And we’ve never seen her so much on screen. Any other time you’ve seen Wednesday, she’s been one-liners, the end of a joke, she always hits it, and I think that’s what people really love about her. But in this show, every scene is Wednesday.

In case you missed it the first time, here’s the series trailer:

And here is the series’ official synopsis:

From the imagination of Tim Burton, WEDNESDAY is an insightful supernatural mystery that charts Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy as she tries to master her new psychic abilities, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery, that involved her parents 25 years ago – all while navigating her new and very tangled relationship on Nevermore. Snap snap.

Wednesday premieres on Netflix on November 23. Expect more news about the show at Netflix’s upcoming Tudum online fan event on Saturday, September 24.
