‘Wednesday’ with Jenna Ortega: Aldo Grasso’s review of the TV series on Netflix

In wanting to bring back a mythical character from American serialisation and cinema, the series produced by the genius of Tim Burton (who signs the direction of the first four episodes) accumulates genres, sub-genres and quotations.

  • Genre: horror-fantasy-teen drama-black comedy
  • Director: Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. With Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez, Christina Ricci, Fred Armisen. On Netflix!

The phenomenon of the moment on Netflix is the series Wednesday, spinoff of the famous Addams Family saga, which revolves around the figure of the little girl of the house, who here becomes a teenager with a peculiar character, eccentric and dangerous to her schoolmates.

Lonely and gloomy, Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) has a taste for the macabre and grim and, above all, is willing to use any kind of violence to defend her clumsy little brother Pugsley (Isaac Ordonez). Therefore - to prevent her from further trouble - her parents Morticia (Catherine Zeta Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzmán) decide to transfer her to the Nevermore Academy, the school they attended in their youth.

Here, Wednesday will learn to use her powers to uncover mysterious backgrounds about her family and the founder of the town where she lives, as well as to foil a series of murders that terrorize the school.

In its desire to bring back a mythical character of American seriality and cinema (it originated from a 1930s comic strip), the Netflix series produced by the genius of Tim Burton (who directed the first four episodes) accumulates genres, sub-genres and quotations: if horror and fantasy predominate, we discover forays into teen drama and black comedy.

For those who love the endless paths of iconic pop culture characters and Tim Burton's gothic universes.
