While the rest of the family will have a smaller role, it was still important to have the perfect casting. Catherine Zeta-Jones has been cast as Wednesday’s mother, Morticia Addams.
Reportedly, the show will follow Wednesday as she attends Nevermore Academy and works on her psychic abilities. She also must solve a mystery that her parents were involved in 25 years ago. Jenna Ortega is set to play Wednesday.
