Wednesday Addams has sent Ttwitter into a spiral ever since Netflix series Wednesday debuted on the platform on November 23. #wednesdaynetflix started trending shortly after, with a number of fans already sharing wild reactions to the show post a binge-watch.
Several Twitter users went on to praise the show, particularly Jenna’s performance with one fan saying, “I’m sorry but I’m completely obsessed with Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams.” Meanwhile another tweet added: “Have an awful Wednesday everyone. See ya [sic] when I’ve finished every single episode.” Another fan gushed about the interaction scene of Jenna and Christina and said, “Christina ricci and jenna ortega interacting on #wednesdaynetflix It’s the most epic interaction ever.” One user said: “I just finished watching the first episode of Wednesday and god I love it [so much]. Jenna is so perfect as Wednesday and the fencing scenes are so good.” Another fan said, “Jenna Ortega needs to be added up to the books as iconic Wednesdays immediately.”
Star Jenna Ortega, who plays the titular character is at the centre of the frenzy, with fans calling her performance “chaotic best,” and “iconic.” Jenna stars as the icy and gothic high school student, who had to recently shift to a different school called Nevermore Academy for murdering a child at the previous institution. She is the eldest and only daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams (played by Luis Guzmán and Catherine Zeta-Jones).
At Nevermore, Wednesday has to control her killing spree and concentrate on solving a family mystery. Created by Al Gough and Miles Millar, the eight episode series also marks the return of Christina Ricci, who previously portrayed Wednesday in the 1991 film The Addams Family as well as its sequel Addams Family Values.
The scenes between Enid Sinclair, played by Emma Myers, a bubbly character from the show and Wednesday also gained much attention. One user said, “I love them so much you guys don’t understand,” while another was quick to point out how, “The way Wednesday was reluctant at first but after looking into Enid’s teary eyes she could see the tremendous worry & affection she held for her and choose to embrace Enid. An act not even her family receives, which tells us how much Enid means to her.”
Wednesday also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Fred Armisen, and Isaac Ordonez, is now available to stream on Netflix.
