[WATCH] Netflix Releases Title Sequence for Its Upcoming ‘Wednesday’ Series

While Tim Burton’s take on The Addams Family isn’t set to hit Netflix until November 23, the streaming service dropped the series title sequence to help hold folks over until the series release.

While the sequence doesn’t give us glimpses of the show itself, it gives off classic Tim Burton vibes, filled with plenty of swirls, dark imagery, and even a cartoony skull. The trailer also gives us our first taste of the music for the series composed by long-time Burton collaborator Danny Elfman. The series theme gives a clear homage to the classic television series theme, complete with harpsichord layered throughout, but it is much darker than creepy and kooky.

“Wednesday” stars Jenna Ortega in the title role, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci, and the recently unveiled Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester.

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.
