Christina Ricci Joins Netflix’s Upcoming Wednesday Addams Series

Christina Ricci is keeping it all in the family. 

The actress, who played Wednesday Addams in the beloved ’90s Addams Family movies, has joined the cast of Tim Burton‘s upcoming Netflix series Wednesday.

Ricci is set to play a new character in the Addams Family universe, leaving the Wednesday duties up to Scream and You star Jenna Ortega

The eight-episode series is “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy,” according to the streamer.

In addition, Wednesday will attempt 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.”

And we thought our school experiences were dramatic.

The cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams and Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems.
