Tim Burton Is Rebooting The Addams Family Into a Live-Action Series!

It will be told from the POV of Wednesday.

This is probably the timeliest news in the month of Halloween. Tim Burton is set to reboot the well-loved Addams Family franchise into a live-action series. The Addams Family was created in 1938 by cartoonist Charles Addams and rose to fame through the ‘60s TV sitcom and ‘90s movie adaptations. Many will remember The Addams Family for its spooky and semi-morbid comedy that somehow appealed to many audiences across the world.

If Tim Burton directs the series, it would mark his debut as a live-action television director. We wouldn’t mind seeing how this could turn out, especially considering Burton’s record with fantasy and gothic horror films like Edward Scissorhands and Dark Shadows, to name a few. According to Screenrant, there are no further announcements on the series’ distribution platform but Netflix is keen to pick it up. Aside from that, we know that Tim Burton’s Addams Family will be set in present-day and told from the point of view of Wednesday Addams. Wednesday will also be portrayed as the show’s central protagonist. (Wednesday fans have permission to freak out now!)
