It was announced today that Academy Award® and Tony Award®-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago, A Little Night Music) will guest star as “Morticia Addams” in the upcoming Netflix series WEDNESDAY.
Previously announced cast include lead Jenna Ortega (Scream, The Fallout) who plays “Wednesday,” in the character’s first young-adult television series; and Luis Guzmán (Boogie Nights, Traffic, Carlito’s Way) who will guest star as “Gomez Addams.”
The character has been portrayed in television, film, video games and even musicals, but Wednesday has always been part of The Addams Family ensemble until now — in her first young adult television series.
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.
The series is being directed and executive produced by Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands). Al Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville, Into the Badlands) are both showrunners and executive producers on the WEDNESDAY series.
Also executive producing is Andrew Mittman for 1.21 (The Addams Family, Alphas), Kevin Miserocchi (Tee and Charles Addams Foundation), Kayla Alpert (Code Black, Up All Night), Jonathan Glickman for Glickmania (RESPECT, Addams Family 2), Steve Stark (Medium, The Event), and Gail Berman (The Addams Family, Alphas).
WEDNESDAY will have eight episodes. Stay tuned to learn more about the series!
