A new teaser for Netflix’s Addams Family spin-off series Wednesday offers a look inside Nevermore Academy and invites viewers to enroll at Wednesday Addams’ spooky school.
Wednesday follows Wednesday Addams during her time at Nevermore Academy, a school for unusual students such as her, where she learns to master her psychic abilities. Here, she finds herself in the company of similarly “creepy” and “kooky” children, while she also attempts to get to the bottom of a killing spree that’s troubling the local town.
The latest teaser for the series reveals some of the unusual students and even more unusual lessons at Nevermore Academy, promoting a website where fans can apply to the strange school.
The new Wednesday promo takes the form of a commercial for Nevermore Academy, with students promoting the school’s unique faculties and referencing alumni such as Edgar Allan Poe and Gomez and Morticia Addams.
The promo is introduced by Gwendoline Christie’s Principal Larissa Weems, who then hands over to the supernatural students of Nevermore Academy. The students reveal the school is open to outcasts “from all walks of life… and death.”
Get your first look at Wednesday‘s Nevermore Academy in the video below:
Visiting the Nevermore Academy website mentioned in the promo will allow fans to apply to the school by completing a brief questionnaire on their “outcast” status. It looks like Wednesday will bring all the creepy and macabre trappings audiences would expect from a Tim Burton take on The Addams Family.
Here’s the synopsis for Wednesday:
“A sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized 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 Nevermore.”
