Geeked Week is now underway (keep an eye out for a lot more coverage later on today), and we kick things off with a new teaser promo for Tim Burton's upcoming The Addams Family spinoff series, Wednesday.

The video gives us a first glimpse of Jenna Ortega (X, Scream) as the titular character, along with the family's loyal... hand, Thing.

We recently learned that Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the '90s Addams Family movie and its sequel Addams Family Values, has been cast in an undisclosed role. She joins Game of Thrones alum Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems, the principal of Wednesday's school,  Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, and Luis Guzmán as Gomez.

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.

She looks really good as Wednesday. I don't think it will work without the rest of the family. It will get old pretty quick!
