In the trailer, Wednesday decides to punish the swim team at her school after they bully her brother Pugsly, telling them: "The only person who gets to torture my brother is me." After she is expelled, she is sent to Nevermore Academy - where she can finally meet some like-minded people.

The official synopsis reads: "The series is a sleuthing, 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."
