Our favorite creepy and kooky Addams family member is finally getting her own Netflix series, and Tim Burton is set to direct.

Wednesday was originally announced in October 2020, but at the time, had no names attached. Now, Netflix has ordered eight episodes of the live-action and revealed the plot. The Wednesday Addams show is a coming-of-age series aimed at a young adult audience, and will follow Wednesday as she attempts to uncover the reasons behind the mysterious supernatural occurrences at her new school. Plus, she’ll have to master her emerging psychic ability while handling the new, complex relationships she makes at Nevermore Academy. 

The aptly titled series will mark Tim Burton’s first time directing a television series. While he has directed episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, he is best known for his unique aesthetic in films like Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, and Batman.
