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.”

Christie is also playing a role in another major upcoming Netflix fantasy title, an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, which has wrapped production.

Tim Burton will direct and executive produce the first season, which consists of eight episodes, and is written by showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville). The characters were created by cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938 and have had many adaptations over the years (including the 1993 film Addams Family Values, pictured above, with Christina Ricci in the Wednesday role). While Burton’s previous work like The Nightmare Before Christmas seemingly drew some inspiration from the franchise, this marks his first Addams Family project.
