Following a surpassingly bloody trailer, Netflix has released a new teaser for Tim Burton's upcoming The Addams Family spinoff, Wednesday.
Jenna Ortega's sullen antiheroine actually only appears in one brief shot at the end, as this promo focuses on the students Wednesday will encounter in Nevermore Academy.
Introduced by Principal Larissa Weems (Game of Thrones alum Gwendoline Christie), the video spotlights the various ghosts, witches, vampires, shape-shifters and werewolves(?) we'll meet over the course of the series. Previous takes on The Addams Family have contained some horror elements, of course, but it looks like Wednesday is going full-on supernatural.
Check out the new sneak peek below.
The coming-of-age comedy series, which has Al Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville, Into the Badlands) on board as showrunners, is said to be "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."
Burton will make his TV directing debut with the show, and will also executive produce alongside Jonathan Glickman, Andrew Mittman, Kayla Alpert, Gail Berman, Steve Stark, and Kevin Miserocchi. Production is currently underway, but no premiere date has been announced.
