Go behind the scenes of Tim Burton's upcoming Wednesday as Jenna Ortega breaks down doing Wednesday justice with cello lessons, fencing lessons, and getting the Wednesday walk just right. The new series follows Wednesday's journey to Nevermore Academy where our favorite celebrated outsider navigates the social norms of her new school, and still finds time to work on unraveling a supernaturally infused mystery.

Burton likens Ortega's performance to "a silent movie actress", bringing the subtleties of Wednesday to life without words. When she is using words, the wit cuts deep and the dry humor bites hard. Take a look as Ortega brings Wednesday to life.

is described as "a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday's attempts 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."

Tim Burton's Wednesday series is coming soon to Netflix. Christina Ricci, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán and more will be joining Ortega to bring this latest incarnation of the Addams family to life.
