Wednesday Release Set for Fall 2022

Netflix confirmed that Wednesday will release sometime in the Fall of 2022, however, an exact release date is yet to be set.

A recent trailer confirmed that the series was imminent and it would make perfect sense for it to premiere around the Halloween season towards the end of October.

The show is described as “a twisted new series” focusing on the titular Addams sibling Wednesday.

Meet the Cast of Wednesday

Fans will notice that Christina Ricci’s character has been left a mystery for now, however, Deadline confirmed that the actor will be playing a new character instead of an older Wednesday.

Game of Thrones and The Sandman actor Gwendoline Christie is also part of the main lineup and you’ll also notice that Luis Guzmán’s Gomez has been labeled a guest role, meaning the character may not appear very often.
