A new teaser for Netflix Addams Family spin-off series Wednesday offers a glimpse into Nevermore Academy and invites viewers to enroll in Wednesday Addams’ spooky school.
Wednesday follows Wednesday Addams during her time at Nevermore Academy, a school for unusual students like her, where she learns to master her psychic abilities. Here, she finds herself in the company of equally “scary” and “crazy” children, as she also attempts to shed light on a killing spree that is troubling the local town.
The latest teaser for the series reveals some of the unusual students and even more unusual lessons at Nevermore Academy, promoting a website where fans can apply to the strange school.
New Wednesday The promo takes the form of an advertisement for Nevermore Academy, with students promoting the school’s unique faculties and referencing alumni such as Edgar Allan Poe, Gomez and Morticia Addams.
The promo is introduced by Gwendoline Christie’s manager, Larissa Weems, who then passes the baton to the supernatural students of Nevermore Academy. The students reveal that the school is open to outcasts “from all walks of life…and death.”
