14 June – Christina Ricci has nothing but praises for all her co-stars in the upcoming Tim Burton Netflix series, "Wednesday", having return to the said franchise in a different character altogether.

Ricci, who previously played the character in the two "Addams Family" movies in the '90s, stated that it had been "super fun" for her to be able to work with the people in the Addams Family project, "Wednesday".

"It's super fun. I loved working with Tim [Burton]. I worked with Gwendoline Christie, it was amazing. And Jenna is incredible," Ricci said.

Jenna in this case is Jenna Ortega, who is playing the titular character. Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie is playing Larissa Weems, the principal of Wednesday's new school and former rival of Morticia Addams (Wednesday's mum).

"I saw some of the wardrobe photos before I went [to set] so I knew [what she looked like in character] and I was like, it's such a great modern take on Wednesday. It's so true tonally to the heart and soul of [the original], but it's then it's incredibly modern and it's great."

No news as to what character Ricci plays in the series.

Based on the character originally created by Charles Addams, the upcoming series is a supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy. She attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorised the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago - all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at her new school.

Other co-stars include Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, and Isaac Ordonez as Wednesday's younger brother Pugsley.
