  • Tim Burton will direct the highly anticipated series
  • Netflix has not announced its release date yet

You probably didn't realize how much you missed Wednesday Addams until just now.

Yes, she is the same Wednesday Addams of the infamous Addams Family, whom you might have met in the 1964 hit TV show or maybe in the 1991 film. To date, Wednesday has been played by Lisa Loring, Christina Ricci and, more recently, by Chloë Grace Moretz.

Now that your memory has been jogged, it's time for some good news: The creepily adorable Addams will be back soon.

Netflix is coming up with an eight-episode live-action coming-of-age series dedicated to Wednesday Addams. Although we still don't know a whole lot about the show, Netflix has just given fans some juicy details to keep them satiated until more information about the series gets released.

If you are someone who remembers all the details from the show, you might want to know that Wednesday will still be a student of the Nevermore Academy, and she will also be a sort of supernatural Sherlock Holmes. In the show, Wednesday can be seen mastering her psychic abilities while navigating new relationships at school.

This time, Wednesday Addams will be played by Jenna Ortega. The young actress has played a variety of roles and also starred in the popular Disney TV show "Stuck in the Middle." It will be quite an interesting transformation for her.

Ortega took to Instagram to make the announcement and wrote, "New chapter. Hope I can do Wednesday Addams justice. *snaps twice*"

Tim Burton will make his TV directorial debut with this Netflix series. He will also serve as one of the show's executive producers. With this, we can rest assured that this director will give us the perfect Wednesday Addams.

The series is created by Al Gough and Miles Millar, who will also serve as the executive producers of the show.

Unfortunately, we still don't know when the show will hit the screens. However, given how sudden the announcement and casting of the show took place, fans can only hope that the series comes out soon. Until then, a simple teaser would be great.
