The spookiest and creepiest family in pop culture is getting a new look in a Netflix series that starts Wednesday. The show was made by Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, who also run it.

Tim Burton directed some of the episodes. Wednesday Addams is the main character of the show, and Jenna Ortega plays her. Other members of the family, like Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, play supporting roles.

Wednesday might be mostly about Wednesday Addams, but if the show does well on Netflix, we might get to see more of what the other Addams family members get up to. This week, Millar and Gough talked about branching out after Wednesday comes out in an interview for The Hollywood Reporter’s TV Top 5 podcast.

The two say that when they made Wednesday, they hoped that some of the characters would get their own shows. That’s why they got such big names to play the other members of the Addams family.

“We have definitely talked about it, and we even talked to Netflix about it. Again, the idea behind making a world like this is that any of these characters could be the main character in their own show. Certainly, that’s how it looks. When you have Fred Armisen, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Luis Guzman, you know what I mean. So that’s definitely something we’ve talked about, and we’d really like to be able to expand this world beyond just Wednesday.”

Before Fred Armisen was cast as Uncle Fester, there was a lot of talk about who would play him. However, the choice of Fred Armisen has been very well received. He was in a new trailer that also showed Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the live-action movies, in her special role in the TV show for the first time. Jenna Ortega said that before the shoot, she was scared to work with Christina Ricci.

“When I was told, I felt like I was really having a panic attack.” “Ricci told Empire Magazine. “I was really scared. She is a very cool person. I didn’t mind meeting her, but it was nerve-wracking the first time we did a scene together and she had to see me dressed the same way she was dressed 30 years ago.
