Netflix’s Wednesday’s first season was released with eight episodes, four directed by Tim Burton, so the gothic and dark atmosphere is present. Burton also served as executive producer, with Alfred Gough and Miles Millar among the screenwriters. The characters look elegant and have a romantic touch; their creator tried to maintain the essence of the original Addams family. Gough explains that for them, it was essential that “the series not be perceived as a remake or reboot.”

If we remember, the first story of The Addams Family was presented in 1964 with 64 episodes of 30 minutes filmed in black and white. The show broadcasted from September 1964 to April 1966. Then came three movies in 1991, 1993, and 1998. Another animated version of The Addams Family was released in 2019, followed by a sequel in 2021. Thus, Netflix’s Wednesday has some interesting precedents.

Let’s start with the main character, Wednesday Addams, who Jenna Ortega plays. Wednesday is Morticia and Gomez Addams’s eldest daughter. She stands out for her above-average intelligence; to some, she seems “a little dead inside.”

Luis Guzman plays Wednesday’s father, Gomez Addams. This somewhat eccentric, multi-millionaire head of the family is madly in love with his wife, Morticia. The Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzman is recognized for his performances in the movie Carlito’s Way and the show Narcos.

Catherine Zeta-Jones plays Wednesday’s mother, Morticia Addams, in the Netflix series. Morticia is a charming and elegant woman with pale skin and lengthy dark black hair, contrasting with her personality. She is a very seductive and, at the same time, empathetic woman who has excellent sophistication.

Isaac Ordoñez is in charge of playing Wednesday’s younger brother, Pugsley Addams, the youngest character in the Addams family. Pugsley’s personality is quite innocent but genius at the same time. Some see him as the black sheep of the family.

We can’t forget comedian Fred Armisen, who plays one of the most beloved members of the Addams family, Uncle Lester.

Other Cast Members

Also in the cast is Gwendoline Christie, who plays Nevermore Academy’s headmistress, Larissa Weems. The prominent actress has appeared in major franchises such as Star Wars and Games of Thrones.

Riki Lindhome plays Wednesday’s therapist, Dr. Valerie Kinbott. Percy Hynes White is Xavier Thorpe, a mysterious student from Nevermore Academy who could turn into Wednesday’s love interest. Emma Myers plays Enid Sinclair, Wednesday’s roommate, who will gain her trust. Oh, and she’s also a werewolf.

One of the most anticipated characters is Marilyn Thornhill, one of the teachers at Nevermore. Christina Ricci plays this character, and if the name rings a bell, it’s because Ricci played Wednesday Addams in both Addams Family movies from 91 and 93.

Recently, Jenna Ortega explained how she felt playing Wednesday in front of the original Wednesday, Christina Ricci. Ortega declared, “I’ve never been so awkward, like I didn’t know what to say to her. I think she’s a fantastic character actress. I know her as Wednesday in my head, so it was intimidating. But she’s so wonderful and talented — she made it really easy.”

Wednesday is available to watch on Netflix.
