“Wednesday” is a new series on Netflix, its plot revolves around Wednesday Addams from “The Addams Family” movies. 

Wednesday Addams, played by Jenna Ortega, gets sent to a boarding school called Nevermore Academy.  She lives in her mother’s shadow as her mother has done everything at the school. While Wednesday is there, she attempts to solve a mystery and attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, stop a killing spree and keep herself out of trouble. 

There are multiple side characters that add to the story and bring more plot and interest to the show. One of the side characters that Wednesday meets early on is Tyler Galpin played by Hunter Doohan. He’s a normal human that tries to help her out but fails and they become friends.

Another character is Enid Sinclair played by Emma Myers. She’s a werewolf that hasn’t completely turned into a werewolf yet. She gets Wednesday to open up and come out of her comfort zone.

One last person is Xavier Thorpe played by Percy Hynes White. He’s a psychic that can make his art come to life, but he can’t control it all of the time. He saves her from death in the first episode and has a weird friendship with Wednesday throughout the show.

One of my favorite things about the show is that the actor Christina Ricci that played the original Wednesday in “The Addams Family” 1991 and 1993 films is in the show as another character.  Another reason I like the show is because it takes place in the current time, 2022 and most supernatural series don’t. 

 The genres are fantasy, comedy, horror, supernatural and supernatural fiction. The rating for this show would be TV 14, which may be unsuitable for children under 14 because of the killing, swearing and bloody storyline.

The show is a lot like “Stranger Things” with the killing and supernatural fiction. 

I would rate this series a five out of five because as there is a lot of mystery and suspense. There is also a homely character that brings light into the darkness of the show.
