At long last, “Wednesday,” which stars Jenna Ortega of “X” and “Scream” fame, is streaming on Netflix. Ortega takes over the role from iconic ’90s Wednesday Christina Ricci, who so memorably burned down a Thanksgiving play in “Addams Family Values.”
Ricci appears as a different character in the series from Tim Burton and “Smallville” co-creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, while Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman take over as Morticia and Gomez Addams.
Here’s where to rewatch the ’90s films that starred Anjelica Huston, Raúl Julia and Christopher Lloyd, and the two recent animated films. And, if you insist on seeking it out, the notorious direct-to-DVD “Addams Family Reunion,” starring Tim Curry and Daryl Hannah.
