Jenna Ortega Terrifies as Wednesday Addams in New Teaser

From the mind of Tim Burton, Wednesday is coming soon to Netflix.
  • Netflix has released the official teaser for Wednesday, the new series charting Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy.

    The series follows Wednesday as she attempts to master her emerging psychic abilities, stops a killing spree in the town, and solves a murder that has plagued her parents for 25 years.

    Released Wednesday (but of course), the teaser is filled with mischief and mayhem. In one shot, Wednesday, played by Jenna Ortega, releases a school of piranhas onto the swim team, a deadpan expression on her face as one of the students gets mauled by the small fish.

    In addition to Ortega, Wednesday stars Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, and Percy Hynes White, among others. Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in The Addams Family films, is also set to appear. Details about who plays Uncle Fester and whether he appears in the series are still under wraps.

    Wednesday is set to premiere on Netflix this fall.
