Netflix Unveils ‘Wednesday’ Character Posters and Now We’re Even *More* Excited

Just as Halloween was coming to an end, Netflix surprised fans with a small “spooky” treat, featuring the brand-new Wednesday Addams.

This week, the streaming service unveiled the official character posters for the highly anticipated series, Wednesday. The first photo features Wednesday (played by Jenna Ortega) dressed in her signature black clothing and pigtails while standing in front of a giant “W.”

Other posters feature additional characters from the series, who are wearing the notable purple uniforms from Nevermore Academy. The last banner shows her parents, Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez Addams (Luis Guzmán) with the infamous Thing sitting atop his shoulder. The caption read, “Happy Halloween from Wednesday Addams.”

Ortega recently opened up about taking on the role of Wednesday in the Netflix series and how it was “stressful” for her at first. “I would call my parents every night in a panic because I felt like it was different from any job I had ever done before where I typically have that time to sit into the character,” she said, according to Deadline. But from the looks of the trailer, she figured things out just fine.

Mark your calendars, if you dare: Wednesday premieres on Netflix on November 23.
