One of the hottest coming-of-age comedy that will air on Netflix in the future is going to be Wednesday, a TV series about Wednesday Addams, a beloved character from the cult classic 1991 film The Addams Family.
The eponymous series is the pop culture icon’s first young adult television series, and will mark Burton’s directorial TV debut too.
“The series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s 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 at Nevermore.”
Burton is set to serve as both director and co-executive producer alongside showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar plus other executive producers Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman and Gail Berman — some of whom have worked on other versions of The Addams Family.
The inaugural season will be comprised of eight episodes, however casting information, a trailer and its release date are all yet to be announced.
