Wednesday: Netflix’s Addams Family Spin-Off Gets a November Release Date

Netflix’s Wednesday, a spin-off of The Addams Family, will be released on November 23 (and yes, that’s a Wednesday).

Revealed during Netflix’s Tudum event, the date came alongside a new clip from the show. Wednesday (played by Jenny Ortega) discovers disembodied hand Thing hiding in her new room at Nevermore Academy and coerces it from being a spy for her parents into giving her its “undying loyalty”.

The show will be chronicling Wednesday’s trip to a gothic boarding school after being expelled from 8 other schools in 5 years. The show promises “a nightmare full of mystery, mayhem, and murder.”

Alongside Ortega in the lead role, Wednesday also features Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams together with Hunter Doohan, Georgie Farmer, and many more. Their stories will unfold across eight episodes, four of which will be directed by Burton, who is making his TV directorial debut on the series.
