‘Wednesday’s Chart Topping Success
Directed by horror auteur Tim Burton, the series breaks away from the previous Addams Family iterations and focuses just on their smart, sarcastic daughter. Ortega had some pretty big shoes to fill but nonetheless, she carried the series to fans’ satisfaction garnering fans’ love as well as critical acclaim. Wednesday stands tall as one of Netflix’s most-watched series, gaining several Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe nominations in various categories including Best Actress nomination for Ortega.
The series sees Wednesday attending her parents’ alma mater Nevermore Academy after she is expelled from her current school. At Nevermore, she uncovers mysteries related to her family as she tries to tame a beast that is wreaking havoc on the school. The show makes a thrilling watch as Wednesday separates her friends from her enemies and peels off one layer of mystery after another aided in all her doings by Thing, who is the breakout star of the series. A second season for the series was announced in January this year, however, there are no development details given the SAG and WAG strikes.
Along with Ortega the series also cast Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems, Jamie McShane as Donovan, Hunter Doohan as Tyler, Percy Hynes White as Xavier, and Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair in leading roles. Further rounding off the cast are Joy Sunday as Bianca, Georgie Farmer as Ajax, Naomi J.
