The Addams Family is back!

Netflix on Wednesday (funnily enough!) dropped the official teaser trailer for its new series, Wednesday.

The streamer also confirmed that the show will hit the air in the fall.

Wednesday Premiere Still

"The series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy," the logline teases.

"There, she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore," the logline adds.

Eight episodes have been ordered, meaning we'll be getting a tightly-woven mystery that will be the perfect binge.

The trailer is as dark as you'd expect, with Wednesday's thirst for blood on full display.

The youngster goes as far as setting piranhas free in a pool, which doesn't end well for her targets.

It's a dark dynamic, and it has the signature aesthetics synonymous with Burton's other works.
