Catherine Zeta-Jones is stepping into the iconic role of Morticia Addams in the upcoming Netflix series Wednesday.

In a new First Look image shared on Tuesday by Vanity Fair, the 52-year-old Tony winner dons the Addams matriarch’s signature all-black dress and long, straightened black hair.

The look was put together by four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, who teamed up with Wednesday’s director and executive producer Tim Burton for the reimagining.



Smallville co-creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough co-created the series, which follows Jenna Ortega as the title character as she attends the Nevermore Academy boarding school.

Luis Guzmán plays dad Gomez Addams, Isaac Ordonez plays little brother Pugsley and Christina Ricci — who played Wednesday in several Addams Family movies in the 1990s — will be joining in an undisclosed role.
