The official trailer for Netflix’s anticipated Addams Family series, “Wednesday”, is here — and there were plenty of surprises!
During Saturday’s New York Comic Con panel, the streaming service debuted the two-and-a-half-minute trailer touting the upcoming dark comedy, which stars Jenna Ortega as the iconic titular character, and introduced a nearly unrecognizable Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester. It also featured the franchise return of Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in the ’90s movies, playing a new character, Miss Thornhill.
The jam-packed trailer sets up the nutty world viewers will enter into when the series drops next month, revealing Uncle Fester’s arrival in a dramatic showdown with Wednesday, as the duo ride off together.
Ricci’s appearance comes at the tail-end of the trailer as she introduces herself to Wednesday at Nevermore.
In the eight-episode drama, Wednesday 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.
“I act as if I don’t care that people dislike me,” Wednesday says in the trailer. “Deep down, I actually enjoy it.”

“Wednesday” drops Wednesday, Nov. 23 on Netflix.
