Netflix has revealed the first extended clip from its upcoming Wednesday TV series Addams.
The 90-second clip, released as part of Netflix’s Tudum 2022 global fan event, gives us an insight into the aesthetic and moody yet humorous tone that the Netflix show is aiming for. Oh, and it also contains an unexpected Marvel reference that Captain America would be proud of.
Check out the first clip from Netflix’s Wednesday Addams series below:
Did you catch Cap’s iconic quote “I could do this all day”? We would be surprised if you didn’t.
Anyway, as you may have seen in the clip, Wednesday Addams isn’t in love with her parents wherever she is these days. And things don’t get much better for the teenage daughter of the Addams Family either, with Morticia and Gomez Addams sending The Thing – an anthropomorphic human hand that can’t speak – to spy on her.
Unsurprisingly, the macabre Wednesday has plans to lock the Thing so she can’t go back to her parents and tell them what she’s been up to – namely, that she plans to escape wherever she is. However, Wednesday decides to give Thing a choice – pledge your allegiance to her, and she can remain free. Understandably, given the alternative, it doesn’t take long for Thing to agree to those terms.
Tudum’s exclusive clip comes a month (and a day!) after the first official trailer for Wednesday Addams dropped online. That teaser gave us a much better idea of the comedy-horror vibe the Netflix live-action series is aiming for, but this new clip offers a bigger look at how Jenna Ortega will embody the role of Wednesday in the character’s first standalone tale.
The new footage also comes 24 hours after Wednesday’s TV show was given an official release date: November 23, which is, unsurprisingly, a Wednesday. The spooky season will be pretty much over by then, but it will still be an exciting post-Halloween watch.

Netflix’s Wednesday stars Ortega in the lead role, with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, and Isaac Ordonez playing Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley Addams, respectively.
Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Riki Lindhorne and Christina Ricci — who starred Wednesday in the beloved Addams Family films of the early 1990s — are also among the show’s substantial supporting cast.
