Netflix revealed the first extended clip of the upcoming Addams TV series on Wednesday.
The 90-second clip, which was released as part of the Netflix Tudum 2022 global fan event, gives us a glimpse into the moody yet humorous aesthetic and tone the Netflix series is aiming at. Oh, and it also includes an unexpected Marvel reference that Captain America would be proud of.
Below is the first Netflix clip on Wednesday Addams:
Did you pick up on Cap’s iconic quote “I can do this all day”? We’d be amazed if you didn’t.
Anyway, as you saw in the clip, Wednesday Addams isn’t in love with his parents, wherever he is at the moment. And for the teenage daughter of the Addams family, things don’t get much pinker as Morticia and Gomez Addams send Thing – an anthropomorphic human hand that can’t speak – to spy on her.
No wonder macabre Wednesday is going to shut down The Thing so she can’t go back to her parents and tell them what she’s up to – namely, that she plans to run away, wherever she is. However, Wednesday decides to give Thing a choice – make a commitment to her loyalty and she can remain free. Understandably, given the alternative, Thing doesn’t have to wait long for these terms.
The exclusive Tudum clip comes a month (and a day!) After the first official Addams Wednesday trailer was made available online. This trailer gave us a much better idea of the comedic horror Netflix is heading for live, but this new clip gives you a better insight into how well Jenna Ortega will play the role of Wednesdays in the character’s first self-narrative.
New footage also arrives 24 hours after Wednesday’s TV show received its official release date: November 23, which is to be expected Wednesday. The spooky season will end by then, but it will still be exciting after Halloween.

Netflix stars Netflix in the lead on Wednesday, 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 in the Addams family’s beloved films of the early 1990s on Wednesday – are also part of the show’s significant supporting cast.
