Good Wednesday for those who were waiting for the premiere of wednesdaythe series whose main character is Merlin Addams. Netflix The eight episodes are already available and, in case you haven’t started it yet, we will tell you some details about this new creation of Tim Burton.
First of all, wednesday is a mystery series with supernatural touches that mixes fun and creepy characteristics typical of Burton with classic teenage problems. As usual, our protagonist doesn’t fit in anywhere, but unlike almost all cases, this is something she enjoys. During the episodes we will see how merlin going to the nevermore academy to try to master his psychic powers and solve mysterious murders.
The person in charge of giving us a new version of the well-known and beloved character from the locos addams it is Jenna Ortegawho you probably know from you. As for the rest of the family we have Luis Guzman What Homer/Gomez Addamsa Catherine Zeta-Jones What Morticiaa Isaac Ordonez What Pericles/Pugsley Addams Already Fred Armisen As the Uncle Lucas/ Fester.
To them are added riki lindhome What Dr. Valerie Kinbott, Gwendoline Christie like the director Larissa Weems, Percy Hynes White What Xavier Thorpe and there are also: Jamie McShane, Hunter Doohan, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Naomi J Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, Iman Marson, among others.
Christina Ricci, who is better known as the merlin from the 1991 film The Addams Locos, also appears in the series. However, she does not play an adult version of the protagonist, but gives life to Marylin Thornhill, one of the employees the Nevermore Academy.
As we told you above, wednesday will show us the life of merlin during his student life at the nevermore academy. There, our protagonist must master her psychic ability, stop a monstrous wave of murders that has terrorized the city, and solve the paranormal mystery that her parents were involved in 25 years ago. And all this while she manages her new —and extremely complicated— relationships at school.
Directed by the director Weemsthe nevermore academy would come to be a boarding school for outcasts, a classic theme of Tim Burton who is present again in the episodes of wednesday. In this academy is where we will spend the most time in the series, there we will see from werewolves and mermaids, to vampires, gorgons and all kinds of creepy students.
However, to this are added the typical elements of a teen series (with its own style, of course): a school dance, an athletic competition, different class subjects, extracurricular activities and various references to the master of literary horror. Edgar Allan Poethe most important and famous alumnus of nevermore.
To further highlight the characteristic wave and style of merlinthe series introduces us to her cheerful and colorful roommate, Enid Sinclair. It is she who explains to our protagonist that there are many different outcasts at school, but the main ones are: Fangs (vampires), Furs (werewolves), Stoners (gorgons) and Scales (mermaids), each with their own adolescent challenges.
Obviously, wednesday does not fit into any of the categories of outcasts that exist in evermore. However, she is far from interested in participating in the typical teenage clichés.
Directed by Tim BurtonWednesday has as scriptwriters Alfred Gough & Miles Millar and has Steve Stark, Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman, Gail Berman, Tommy Harper, and Kevin Lafferty as executive producers.
If you are a fan of locos addams and their classic clicks or you are interested in this type of series, you already have a plan for this week. The eight episodes of wednesday are already available in Netflix.
