According to Netflix, the series will examine Wednesday’s life as a student at the Nevermore Academy. The synopsis reads, “Wednesday 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.”
Wednesday was created by Smallville masterminds Miles Millar and Alfred Gough. They teamed up with Burton to produce a spin-off series that honors the original story, versus replacing it.
Netflix hasn’t announced an official premiere date for Wednesday, but it’s expected to debut sometime this fall.
