At New York Comic Con, things got a bit spooky with the unveiling of the full trailer for Tim Burton‘s Wednesday series for Netflix, live from the Empire stage. Full of reveals and pulse-pounding moments, the footage dives deeper into the mysteries of Nevermore Academy and the danger that lies within for Wednesday and her classmates.
The trailer gives us a brief reintroduction to the haunting school and its inhabitants adding Wednesday’s new roommate Enid Sinclair When he takes off his hat though, we get a big reveal — Uncle Fester is here, and he’s played by none other than Fred Armisen! Arriving in his Penny’s Pooch Patrol motorcycle, it looks like he’ll be around to watch out for Wednesday and add some extra hilarity to the series.
Before the trailer wraps, there’s one final scene revealing former Wednesday Addams Christina Ricci entering as Marilyn Thornhill with a brief, yet hilarious exchange with Wednesday that brings the actress full circle.
By all accounts, Wednesday looks to bring horror and comedy and equal measures, and it’ll feature an immensely talented cast to make it happen. Joining Ortega at the Academy will be Myers and Ricci alongside Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Joy Sunday, Naomi J Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, and Riki Lindhome.
Guest stars added the rest of the Addams Family portrayed by Armisen, Catherine Zeta-Jones Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, and Lucius Hoyos with Iman Marson as Lucas Walker. Rounding out the cast are Victor Teodor Dorobantu, Calum Ross, and Luyanda Unati Lewis-Nyawo.
Burton serves as director and executive producer on the series with Miles Millar and Al Gough writing, show running, and managerial making. Millar and Gough are focused on keeping things within the story of The Addams Family, but it’s clear they’re having a lot of fun making an absolutely devilish Wednesday and a spooky, mysterious Nevermore Academy.
Joining them as managerial producers are Steve Stark, Andrew Mittman for 1.21 Entertainment, Kevin Miserocchi for the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman for Glickmania, Gail Berman, Tommy Harper, and Kevin Lafferty.
Wednesday release on Netflix on November 23. Check out the trailer below.
