Netflix premiered the first season of the Wednesday series during the week. A series set in the Addams Family world, but specifically focused on the character Wednesday. She was played very well by Jenna Ortega, while the parents were played by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán. They are less prominent and also less interesting. At the same time, Luis is a slightly different Gomez than we are used to from movies and series, but he is faithful to the original cartoon version.
Classic characters include Pugsley, Vec, Lurch and Uncle Fester make an appearance. But Christina Ricci also joins, who used to play Wednesday, but now she got a different character at school.
In the story of the series, Wednesday and I get to the Nevermore Academy, which is directly translated as Nevermore. She got there after failing in standard schools without ever getting in trouble. However, Nevermore is not an ordinary school, it is a school where those who can’t fit in, monsters such as vampires, werewolves, sirens, jellyfish, but also people with abilities.
As the family is connected to the academy, the series will reveal more about the family’s background, past and things that have not been revealed so far. But it’s just the background, where the main story is Wednesday’s story, her learning about school and socialization, which is complicated with her because she doesn’t show her feelings (which Jenna Ortega played very well). At the same time, however, she is interested in mysteries and since a murder happened right around the school, she starts to like the school. The nearby town of Jericho is added to the school environment.
The first series offers eight parts, each of which is around 50 minutes long, so they will offer enough content to be divided between schools, quests, relationships and family. Together, they will bring a decent story, but above all, a unique visual rendering, which Tim Burton cared about. Finally, as always. Expect a very clean art style, color and black and white contrasts and of course a good camera. Plus, since they took Danny Elfman, you can’t complain about the music.
In terms of style, expect something like Harry Potter mixed with Sabrina, but of course with the theme of the Addams family, which also does not shy away from brutality. The result is very interesting. Let’s hope the second season comes as soon as possible.
