Iconic Addams family returns again with the T.V. show, “Wednesday.” This was released on Netflix just in time for Thanksgiving, allowing viewers to binge over the holiday break.

Directed by Tim Burton, this series follows Wednesday Addams (Jenna Ortega) and her transition to a new school that her parents also attended. The school, Nevermore Academy, is located in a seemingly ordinary town where all the students that attend are considered outcasts.

When Wednesday arrives, she tries to be dark and isolated but soon meets people she apprehensively considers friends, one of which is her roommate Enid Sinclair (Emma Myers). As Wednesday starts to spend more time at Nevermore, she uncovers a mystery surrounding her school, the town and a murder spree. She continuously tries to reveal the truth about herself, her psychic abilities, her family and the relationship between Nevermore and the surrounding town.

With an appearance from Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in the 90s remake of “The Addams Family Values,” the new modern look of Wednesday Addams, and all of the small details, this show incorporates the old and new.

Burton carries on his distinct directorial elements with his choices of music and a dull gray cast over every scene.

This show is for anyone who enjoys dark humor, the Addams family, and a classic whodunit.

Since Wednesday has been released, it has remained number 1 on Netflix’s Top 10 list for the United States and has an overall score of 71%.
