There have been several collaborations between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp over the years. Depp reportedly appeared in rumors when Burton announced he would direct a Netflix series. According to Grazia, fans are still guessing following the trailer for the remake. The Addams Family reboot has been renamed Wednesday by Netflix. The remake also features teenager Wednesday Addams, as suggested by the name change. An adolescent decides to turn to darkness rather than popularity in the film played by Jenna Ortega.
Morticia's perfect star was Catherine-Zeta Jones, according to the streaming service. Even though Netflix announced who will play Gomez and Pugsley, there remains a mystery about someone special. Luiz Guzman has been cast as Gomez, while Isaac Ordonez is cast as Pugsley. As for Uncle Fester, Johnny Depp has been rumored as a secret casting pick.
In addition, there is no indication on the publicity posters which actor will portray Uncle Fester. In interviews, Alfred Goughrather resisted providing any hints. His response to Uncle Fester was, "We do not have any comment.". We'll see what happens."There was, however, a clue from one source. According to the insider, Netflix has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep Uncle Fester's identity secret.
However, the first edits indicate that Burton was correct in fighting for his casting." As a result of Burton's mention, fans speculate that Depp will play the role. Actors and directors of such classic films as Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd, and Alice in Wonderland worked together. It follows Wednesday Addams through her years at Nevermore Academy and has been described as "a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery."
While Wednesday struggles to master her psychic abilities, she must also “thwart a monstrous killing spree that is terrorizing the local town.” She is also involved in a murder mystery that occurred 25 hours ago involving her parents. All in all, it sounds like a deliciously twisted experience. Although there has been no official announcement of the premiere date, the show is reportedly scheduled to air in autumn before Halloween.
