Wednesday Addams (JENNA ORTEGA) is expelled from her school after dumping live piranhas into the school’s pool in retaliation for the boys’ water polo team bullying her brother Pugsley. As a result, her parents Gomez and Morticia Addams (LUIS GUZMAN, CATHERINE ZETA-JONES) enroll her at their high school alma mater Nevermore Academy, a private school for monstrous outcasts, in the town of Jericho, Vermont. Wednesday’s cold, emotionless personality and her defiant nature make it difficult for her to connect with her schoolmates and cause her to run afoul of the school’s principal Larissa Weems (GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE).



This release does come with a slip cover, however no features were included.


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4/5

Wednesday: Season 1 arrives on Blu-ray through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and is presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. This series does look quite good with a nice array of the darker elements, specifically of Wednesday’s lack of color with the colors of the supporting characters. Detail is sharp and well defined throughout as well and black levels that is stark without appearing crushed.

Every episode is accompanied with a standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that is effective enough providing for clear dialogue levels and some decent depth though the bulk of this show is filled with dialogue or music, including the now iconic dance scene.
