Catherine Zeta-Jones is Morticia Addams for ‘Wednesday’

by | Aug 10, 2021

Catherine Zeta-Jones is getting her snap on, as she steps into the shoes of matriarchal royalty Morticia Addams. The new Addams Family reboot from Tim Burton and Netflix, called Wednesday, will star Zeta-Jones as wife and mother to Luis Guzmán (Gomez) and Jenny Ortega (Wednesday) in the new show. 

The announcement was made in a tweet by Netflix, who welcomed the both Zeta-Jones and Guzmán into the family.

 

 

Zeta-Jones (Chicago, The Mask of Zorro) will follow in the footsteps of Anjelica Huston and and Charlize Theron who have both brought Morticia Addams to life onscreen. Huston starred in the 1991 film and Theron voiced the character in the 2019 animated remake

Announced back in February,  the streaming series will take a different approach to all other Adams Family adaptions, focusing mainly on Wednesday Adams as she heads to boarding school, where she’s learning to master her growing set of abilities all the while solving a murder mystery. It’s being described as a “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery”. The official synopsis reads. 

“A sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. That’s where she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorised the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships.”

Wednesday is yet to receive an official release date on Netflix, but we’ll keep you informed with any new news on the show.
