Wednesday is an American coming-of-age supernatural comedy horror series based on the character Wednesday Addams (played brilliantly by 20-year-old Jenna Ortega) from The Addams Family.
Four out of the eight episodes are directed by Tim Burton, who also serves as executive producer. It revolves around Wednesday Addams, who attempts to solve a monster mystery at her school.
Wednesday debuted on Netflix in November 2022 and has become a smashing success globally.
Plot of the show:
Wednesday Addams is expelled from her school after dumping live piranhas into the school’s pool in retaliation for the boys’ water polo team bullying her brother, Pugsley. Consequently, her parents, Gomez and Morticia, enroll her at their high school alma mater, Nevermore Academy, a private school for monstrous outcasts, in the town of Jericho, Vermont. Wednesday’s cold, emotionless personality and her defiant nature make it difficult for her to connect with her schoolmates and cause her to run afoul of the school’s principal. However, she discovers she has inherited her mother’s psychic abilities which allow her to solve a local murder mystery.
