The upcoming horror-comedy Netflix series is based on Addams Family character Wednesday, played this time by Scream star Jenna Ortega. Now a teenager, Wednesday has to enter a new private school, Nevermore Academy, where Gomez (Luis Guzmán) and Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones) first met. While at her parents’ alma mater, Wednesday also has to focus on solving a murder mystery along with the other obstacles of education. While the new series will offer its own spin on the Addams Family, there will be at least one tie to the ’90s films with Wednesday actor Christina Ricci taking on a mystery role.
The image of Wednesday and her roommate Enid shows a clear dichotomy between the two characters. The images also continue to prove how Ortega is the perfect casting for Wednesday Addams. The quad of Nevermore Academy also prominently features a spooky-looking tree that properly sets the scene.
