The comedy centers around Morticia and Gomez’s only daughter as she starts a new phase of her life at a peculiar boarding school, Nevermore Academy. According to Netflix, “Wednesday 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 of the strange and diverse student body.”
We still don’t know if the rest of the Addams family, including brother Pugsley, Uncle Fester, butler Lurch and Cousin Itt, will appear and if yes, who will play them.
