The upcoming Addams Family series Wednesday is set to make its premiere on Netflix soon and there has been a lot of anticipation for the series due to what seems to be its unique take on the beloved franchise based on the trailers that were released so far and the involvement of director Tim Burton in the project.
As they are ramping up the excitement for the series ahead of its debut this fall, Netflix has released a new promotional video for Wednesday which invites the audience to the Nevermore Academy as well as "apply" to the school through its website which you can find here.
Headlined by the school's headmistress Larissa Weems (played by Gwendoline Christie), the video gave us a look at what's inside the school including a glimpse at the classes, students, extracurricular activities, and revealed some of their notable alumni such as Edgar Allan Poe, Ignatius Itt, and a certain couple that you might have heard of named Morticia and Gomez Addams.

This promotional chance is certainly a chance for us to catch a glimpse at the place where the majority of the series will be set in and the characters that we will meet along the way. It is also an indication that Netflix is getting full-forced on ramping up its marketing for the series which will debut soon.
The series is "a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday's attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore."
Besides Christie, the cast also includes Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Christina Ricci, Isaac Ordonez, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Georgie Farmer, Moosa Mostafa, Emma Myers, Naomi J. Ogawa, Joy Sunday, Victor Dorobantu, and George Burcea. Burton serves as executive producer and directed four episodes of the first season.
