Get ready to reunite with The Addams Family in the hauntingly familiar opening sequence from Tim Burton’s Wednesday – streaming from November 23
With the countdown officially on to the release of Netflix’s new Addams Family series Wednesday, the streamer has shared the hauntingly familiar opening title sequence. One that will have long-term fans of the family clicking their fingers with devilish glee. Fans were licking their lips when Tim Burton signed on to helm the series. But now, with just a few weeks to go until we embrace the darkness, Netflix is upping the ante by sharing Danny Elfman’s tantalizing new theme. But don’t take my word for it. Click play and reunite with some old, twisted friends!
Described as a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery, Wednesday follows 16-year-old Wednesday Addams as she explores her newfound independence as a student at Nevermore Academy. Once enrolled, she will encounter werewolves, sirens, psychics, and many more creatures that go bump in the night. All the while trying to solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago! But fear not, this Wednesday is no one’s sidekick as she investigates the monstrous killing spree and faces down the scariest threat of all: other teens.
Wednesday Addams is sent to Nevermore Academy, a bizarre boarding school where she attempts to master her psychic powers, stop a monstrous killing spree of the town citizens, and solve the supernatural mystery that affected her family 25 years ago — all while navigating her new relationships.
From the creative mind of Tim Burton, Wednesday stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams. Co-starring are Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Gwendoline Christie, Thora Birch, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Georgie Farmer, Naomi Ogawa and Moosa Mostafa. Members of the Addams family will guest across the series with Catherine Zeta-Jones as matriarch Morticia and Luis Guzmán as Wednesday’s father Gomez. Victor Dorobantu plays dismembered hand, Thing, Isaac Ordonez plays Wednesday’s brother Pugsley and George Burcea plays manservant Lurch.
As mentioned above, the all-new series, brought to the screen by Tim Burton will unleash the eerieness on Netflix from November 23. But can it live to the legacy of the Addams Family? That remains to be seen. But if we are treated to adventures that are creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, and altogether ooky, we’re in for one helluva ride!
Wednesday clicks her fingers on Netflix from November 23rd.
