The reveal trailer doesn’t really give all that much away about the show, but you can find out how Wednesday’s story is going to be set up in the section at the bottom of the page. You can also find out more about the actor playing the role in the section below, along with details on her previous roles.

The teaser trailer was released during the massive Geeked Week Netflix extravaganza that has revealed a slew of new TV series coming to the streaming site.

What is the actor that plays Wednesday Addams

The actor that plays Wednesday Addams is Jenna Ortega, who has been building her reputation in a number of TV series over the last few years. The most notable show she starred in early on in her career was Jane the Virgin, where she played the ten year old younger Jane.

She then went on to pick up her first role for Netflix, playing Darcy in the sitcom Richie Rich, which rebooted the Macaulay Culkin film in TV series form. It picked up two seasons along the way, culminating in its closer in 2015.

She then played Harley Diaz in Disney’s Stuck in the Middle, which was another comedy. It was her first leading role with her character being the middle child of a large family with a lot of big personas. It rand for three seasons between 2016 and 2018.

Her earliest big break on the big screen was as the President’s Daughter in Iron Man 3 back in 2013. However, since then she’s put in a number of performances in horror films, staring off with Insidious: Chapter 2 in the same year.

This eventually led on to roles in Netflix’s black comedy horror film, The Babysitter: Killer Queen in 2020. She played new student at the school, Phoebe Atwell. The horror fest continued with Tara Carpenter in the 2022 Scream relaunch, as well as slasher flick X where she played Lorraine.

The new Wednesday Addams star also picked up Netflix credits for her role in You as Ellie Alves from Season 2 onward. As well as the voice of Brooklynn in animated adventure spin-off, Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous.

Jenna Ortega’s acting credits also include some more serious work with The Fallout being the most significant of these. She plays the lead role of Vada in the high school shooting drama. It went on to win the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Choice Award at South by Southwest.

What’s the story with the Wednesday Netflix spin-off

Unlike all of the Addams Family films and Tv series that have come before it, the Wednesday spin-off on Netflix is pretty much dedicated to the voodoo doll torturing daughter of the family – as you might expects considering the name. However, the differences go a lot further than that.

For a start, this is an older Wednesday Addams than any of the other stories and here the focus is on her time as a student at Nevermore Academy. The dark comedy will spin things even further with the addition of mystery solving episodes.

You could compare this to Scooby Doo, but if you know anything about the Addams Family then you know that there’s nothing fake about the supernatural goings on. It sounds like Wednesday will have some pretty dark forces to contend with, but we’re fairly sure she’ll get the upper hand in the end, especially with Thing on her shoulder.
