While we don’t normally post rumours, our friends over at What’s On Netflix have reported that Tim Burton’s Addams Family spin-off series, “Wednesday”, is reportedly coming to Netflix. In late 2020 it was announced that Tim Burton was working with MGM on an Addams Family spin-off about Wednesday Addams with Netflix being rumoured as the then front-runner in the bidding. Yesterday, What’s On Netflix revealed that it looks as though Netflix have secured that bid and that production is likely to start this Summer. There are no details about cast or release dates at this early stage but we do know that Tim Burton will be directing alongside Alfred Gough and Miles Millar who will act as showrunners and executive producers.
The show is believed to follow Wednesday Addams as she attends boarding school and works on her skills at solving murder mysteries. As with any unofficial announcements it’s always wise to wait for something official but at present we have no reason to doubt our source. And even it it ends up that Netflix aren’t making the series, it’s exciting to know that it is, at least, in the works!
