Feb. 17 (UPI) -- The Addams Family and The Addams Family Values filmmaker Tim Burton is working on a Netflix show based on the iconic literary and screen character Wednesday Addams.
Al Gough and Miles Millar are the showrunners.
No casting has been announced.
Christina Ricci, now 41, played Wednesday as a youth in Burton's 1990s big-screen Addams projects.
The morose character has also appeared in comic strips, a TV sitcom, a Broadway stage musical and several animated adventures.
"The series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy," Netflix said about the next Addams Family iteration.
"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."
Burton's most recent film was 2019's Dumbo.
The filmmaker was in the news earlier this month when a commercial for Cadillac seeming to serve as a sequel to his 1990 classic movie, Edward Scissorhands, debuted on Super Bowl weekend.
