The Netflix series ‘Wednesday’ was released on November 23 and has captured many new fans’ attention, with its exhilarating plotline keeping watchers on their toes

The series directed by Tim Burton is a coming-of-age murder mystery, that takes place in modern-day Romania. 

Wednesday, played by Jenna Ortega, takes on the role of a detective to find the murderer in her new town. As Wednesday navigates a new home, she finds that along the way her foes are really her friends, or are they?

Wednesday is put through many trials and if I were her I’d have a lot of trust issues. 

Viewers not only get to witness a fresh version of Wednesday Addams, but they also meet characters like Enid Sinclair, played by Emma Myers, who is Wednesday’s new roommate and best friend in the series.

We also get to see a handful of love interests for Wednesday, specifically the two male leads, Tyler Galpin, played by Hunter Doohan, and Xavier Thorn, played by Percy Hynes White.

‘Wednesday’ was created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and they did an amazing job portraying the Addams family in a new light.

The series addresses many topics relevant in our world including being an outcast.

‘Wednesday’ explores some of society’s darker topics, including social groupings and prejudice towards those who are different, much like many of Burton’s other works. Even though ‘Wednesday’ is just a show, it still does its part to make people aware of the ongoing issues in our society.

Overall, this show was very entertaining while bringing to light social issues that are very relevant in today’s society. I definitely would recommend this show to anyone who loves The Addams Family and a good murder mystery.
