Don’t Feel Like a Normie? Then Gwendoline Christie Welcomes You to Wednesday’s Nevermore Academy

We’ve gotten surprisingly little so far on the Netflix show Wednesday, a series based on the iconic Addams Family member. Today, however, we’ve been blessed with a video that features Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems, the principal of Nevermore Academy, Wednesday’s rather ghoulish school.

Interested in learning about werewolf reproduction or gorgon anatomy? Nevermore Academy has got you covered! The vibe—from the school uniforms to the building’s looming halls—is very suitably gothic. We also meet some of Wednesday’s fellow schoolmates, who have their own supernatural proclivities.

The end of the video also lists a website, where apparently we can apply to the lauded academy?! Yes, please.

Here’s the official synopsis for the show:

The series is 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.

In addition to Christie, Wednesday stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, Jamie McShane as Sheriff Galpin, Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe, Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin, Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair, Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay, Naomi J Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka, Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Ottinger, Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valerie Kinbott, and with Christina Ricci as Marilyn Thornhill.

Additional cast includes Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams.

No news yet on when the show will premiere on Netflix.
