The Addams Family is about to reunite in the upcoming Netflix series Wednesday. Surprisingly though, there are quite a few members of the family that haven’t been announced or confirmed as part of the spinoff series. While it is all about Wednesday Addams and her murder mystery shenanigans, we still know that Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, and Pugsley will appear. Yet, many have wondered where exactly Uncle Fester was and if he’d even make an appearance.
Luckily, it seems like Netflix was just playing coy to build up to the reveal that Fred Armisen is taking on the role of Fester. He joins Luis Guzmán, Catherine Zeta-Jones, George Burcea, and Isaac Ordonez to round out the family members. The new direction as a coming-of-age mystery comedy will definitely mix things up as Wednesday is heading to Nevermore Academy. So, it’ll be interesting to see if it also mixes up the overall family dynamic or sticks closely to the originals.
Tim Burton is back at the helm of this project and the first trailers already hinted at the gothic flair he’s injecting into the project. So, we’re quite excited to see just what the series has in store, especially if they start exploring a dark mystery that hangs over the Addams family. We’ll see what they have in store for us once the series premieres on November 23rd.
