New Wednesday Clip Reunited The Addams With A Helping Hand

Wednesday gains help with a familiar friend in new clip.


Netflix's Wednesday series from Tim Burton reimagines the spooky and kooky Addams Family for modern times and takes the eldest daughter into a brand-new setting: private school. Jenna Ortega plays the titular character alongside Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman as mother and father Morticia and Gomez.

Details of the story have been under wraps, even if other Addams' notable characters will be making appearances. Well, during Netflix’s Tudum 2022 virtual event, fans got their first look at Thing, the Addams' household assistant and companion with an exclusive scene of Wednesday discovering Thing has somehow snuck aboard her belongings and was sent to keep an eye (or thumb) on her while at Nevermore Academy. Check out the scene below.

With the first teaser of the series released back in June fans of the Addams Family have been clamoring for more information about Wednesday. Ortega herself spoke about the character and what she means to her and how she wanted to represent Wednesday authentically as a young latina woman.

"For me, any time that I have an opportunity to represent my community I want that to be seen," Ortega said in a Netflix featurette. Ortega added that Wednesday had been "flawlessly done in the past" and tried not to overshadow what's been done before, but add things to her.

Wednesday premiers globally on November 23, only on Netflix.
