Netflix confirmed this Friday (23) the premiere date of Wandinhaseries created by Tim Burton. The episodes will arrive in the streaming catalog on September 23.
Starring Jenna Ortega, the series will follow the iconic character introduced in The Addams Family. According to the synopsis, Wandinha it will be an investigative and supernatural mystery.
We’ll see the character in Never Again School, “where she tries to harness her emerging psychic ability, investigate a monstrous killing spree terrorizing the local town, and solve the murder mystery that involved her parents 25 years ago,” says the official synopsis.
“Every time you’ve seen Wandinha, she was the one responsible for the clever lines, the conclusion of a joke, she always hits the nail on the head, and I think that’s what people really love about her. But in this show, we have a little more dimension of the character, she becomes a more real person, and I don’t think we’ve ever seen that before,” Ortega said of the production.
