Netflix has finally released the much-awaited teaser of the upcoming comedy-horror series, Wednesday, based on the life of the popular fictional daughter Wednesday Addams of The Addams Family. Directed by Tim Burton, the show chronicles the twisted and dark story of the main protagonist’s exploits as a high school student at the Nevermore Academy, a magical place filled with weird teens just like her. Wednesday Addams makes an attempt to master her psychic powers to solve a supernatural mystery that disturbed the peace of her family 25 years ago.
While doing so, Wednesday also has to find a way to stop the heinous killing spree of her town citizens all while dealing with the teen drama of love and relationships. The teaser that dropped on August 17 aptly introduces the story of the main protagonist who’s shown to have an interesting educational journey.

I think I’m going to love it here,” in the background voice. While sharing the teaser, Netflix said, “Ladies and gentlemen… her.
