If you are stuck on what to watch this week, this spooky new series might just be what you are looking for.

The Addams family is back, as the new Netflix series Wednesday has launched on the streaming platform. Watch the trailer for horrifying series below:


Directed by Tim Burton, Wednesday follows the Addams' family's daughter as she enters a new school and finds something a bit suspicious.

Wednesday Addams makes friends and foes while at Nevermore Academy, as she investigates a brutal murder spree.

It will be the first time fans have seen a live-action Addams family in decades, with The Addams Family the last dose in 1998.

The new Netflix series features eight episodes at a 45-minute length.

This time, Wednesday Addams will be played by Jenna Ortega - the 20-year-old best know known for her role in the terrifying Scream series.

In the eight-part series, she will try to master her psychic ability to help solve the mystery that affected her parents.

Alongside Ortega playing the main character, the American actor is joined by Luis Guzmán, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Isaac Ordonez, Gwendoline Christie, and others in the cast.

But the most notable and perhaps the most surprising addition in the cast for the Netflix series is Christina Ricci, who originally played Wednesday Addams in the classic film.

For Wednesday, Ricci plays the new character Marilyn Thornhill, who has an interesting story herself.

In a recent interview Ortega has admitted it was awkward with Ricci when they first got on set as Ricci was her character all of them years ago.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this month, Ortega said: "I feel like I personally made it a little weird. She was really sweet about it. Me? It was one of the most awkward experiences I've ever had.

"You know, I'm dressed up the way she was 30 years ago, and she's getting to watch me, but I know her as Wednesday in my head, and I think, socially, I can be kind of hard to communicate with at times. And sometimes I would say something as a joke, and I think I have a very dark sense of humour, and she would go, 'Uh, that's dark'."

If you want to see how the two actors faired together, you can stream Wednesday on Netflix now.
