They're creepy and they're kooky...
Netflix's new Addams Family series focused on daughter Wednesday Addams debuted its first look at the whole family today, including Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley.
The streamer has shared the first full image of the Addams clan. The series will star Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams but include Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams and Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams in an absolute brilliant stroke of casting. Isaac Ordonez has also been cast as the brother Pugsley.
The series will focus on Wednesday as a high school student trying to master her psychic powers and solve a supernatural mystery that befell the Addams clan 25 years before the start of the show.
Tim Burton will make his TV directorial debut and will direct the season for Netflix. Speaking with Vanity Fair, Wednesday writers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough revealed that Burton wanted a Gomez who closely resembled the Charles Addams cartoons, a shorter Gomez versus previous iterations.
The pair also said that Guzmán channeled the “incredibly debonair and romantic” elements of the character while also bringing something “very different and new” to the character.
According to the pair, the Wednesday series will live halfway between a sequel and reboot, and “lives within the Venn diagram of what happened before, but it's its own thing.”
No release date just yet, though Netflix will premiere the show sometime this year. It's also been announced that Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the 90s will also appear in the show.
