"I'M SO READY FOR THIS," one excitedly wrote, with another saying: "You look absolutely stunning! Can’t wait," and a third adding: "You’re a lovely Morticia Addams."

The series will center the story around the family's daughter as she learns to harness her own abilities and gifts as opposed to ground her with the rest of her kooky family like other popular versions have before.

According to Variety: "Wednesday, which received an eight-episode order at Netflix in February, is described as a supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy. 

"Wednesday's 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 at Nevermore."

The show will center around Jenna Ortega's Wednesday

While there is no set premiere date, the show is speculated to drop on the streaming platform somewhere in the fourth quarter of 2022.
