The highly anticipated series, focused on the deadpan eldest daughter of the Addams clan, premieres November 23.
Snap, snap! Netflix recently took to Twitter to reveal the official release date for the upcoming Addams Family spinoff series Wednesday, and it’s coming… a little later than we hoped. Being a franchise with quintessentially Halloween-themed vibes, many believed the Wednesday Addams-centric series would premiere sometime in October; however, we now know the series will debut late November. Although, fittingly, the series does drop on a Wednesday. Nice touch.
