Catherine Zeta- Jones Cast As Morticia

Last February we revealed Netflix was moving forward with a series following Wednesday Addams and last weekend we unveiled who had been cast as Wednesday & Gomez Addams. And announced by Netflix today, Morticia will be played by Welsh actress Catherine Zeta- Jones.


As revealed by Netflix via Twitter earlier today-

"Our Addams family is expanding! Catherine Zeta-Jones will step into the iconic silhouette of Morticia Addams while Luis Guzmán will bring to life the debonair Gomez Addams in the upcoming TV series Wednesday, starring Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams and directed by Tim Burton."

Both Guzmán and Zeta- Jones are listed as guests stars so only expect brief yet regular appearances from Gomez & Morticia. The eight episode Netflix series, described as a "spooky coming-of-age", will follow the beloved Addams Family character, Wednesday, as she lives life as a student at Nevermore Academy while attempting to master her emerging psychic abilities.


Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (“Smallville”) are writing and showrunning with Tim Burton directing.

Netflix's 'Wednesday' is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ (Ortega) years as a student at Nevermore Academy. That’s where she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorised the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships.
