Even though every member of The Addams Family is charming in their own right, few can match Wednesday Addams. The eldest Addams child isn't just an excellent character; Wednesday went on to become something of a spirit animal for throngs of eccentric and goth personalities reared in the 90s. Thanks to Christina Ricci's hilariously deadpan portrayal of the wickedly smart, quip-slinging version of the character, Wednesday Addams found herself occupying a similar territory as Daria Morgendorffer in that she provided "alternative" Millennial girls a role model. Ricci's performance as Wednesday in both of Barry Sonnenfeld's Addams Family films created a perfect cinematic avatar for girls that were discontented with the cookie-cutter version of femininity that society demanded that they conform to.
Due to Wednesday's popularity, it was only a matter of time until a network decided to build a series around the character. In the video linked above, you can check out behind-the-scenes footage of the new Wednesday series from Netflix.
