Your favorite creepy, kooky, spooky family is back with an all-new look. Tim Burton’s upcoming Netflix series Wednesday revealed a look at the newest members of the Addams family.

The series will see Wednesday Addams attempt 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 Academy.

The show stars Jenna Ortega in the lead role. While the series focuses on Wednesday’s time at school, her family will weave in and out in guest roles. Rounding out the Addamses are Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley. 

We got a look at the latest incarnation of the Addams family in a new exclusive from Vanity Fair. Check out pics of the cast in character below.

Series co-creator Alfred Gough said the characters in Wednesday look a little less like the familiar versions from their ‘60s TV and ‘90s film appearances, and more like their original comic strip appearances.

“[Burton] wanted the silhouette to look more like the Charles Addams cartoons, which is Gomez shorter than Morticia, versus the kind of suave Raul Julia version in the movies,” Gough told Vanity Fair.

Fellow co-creator Miles Millar added, “That’s something that was very important to the show—that it didn’t feel like a remake or a reboot. It’s something that lives within the Venn diagram of what happened before, but it’s its own thing. It’s not trying to be the movies or the ’60s TV show. That was very important to us and very important to Tim.”

Wednesday scares up a spot on Netflix later this year.
