Netflix released the teaser for Tim Burton’s live-action Addams Family series Wednesday at this weekend’s New York Comic Con. The clip from the upcoming comedy-horror series revealed Jenna Ortega as Wednesday and comedian Fred Armisen as the very pale Uncle Fester. More notably, fan-favorite Christina Ricci’s brief appearance as teacher Marilyn Thornhill in the trailer has fans most excited.
In 1991’s The Addams Family and 1993’s Addams Family Values, Ricci first appeared as a young Wednesday Addams. Since the announcement in March, Ricci’s return to the franchise had been kept a mystery. The teaser has finally offered viewers a look at Ricci as Thornhill, an original character created specifically for the series. Thornhill could serve as a teacher-mother figure to Wednesday, who has begun her studies at the private school Nevermore Academy and plans to enhance her psychic skills.
The show also has a sizable ensemble full of well-known actors, including Gwendoline Christie as Principal Larissa Weems, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams. Wednesday arrives on Netflix on November 23rd. You can watch the official trailer in the player above.
