Catherine Zeta-Jones looks absolutely stunning as Morticia Addams as she shared a picture of the creepy Addams Family on Wednesday, August 17, followed by the official trailer. Tim Burton's limited series 'Wednesday' stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jenna Ortega, Luis Guzmán, and Isaac Ordonez, which is coming this fall. Catherine strikes a resemblance to the iconic character played by Anjelica Huston who portrayed the spooky matriarch in two Addams Family adaptations in the '90s, but with a class of her own, that is unparalleled.

Taking to her Instagram, Catherine shared a jaw-dropping picture of herself wearing a form-fitting black dress and sleek raven locks, along with the rest of the family members. In the picture which shows the creepy family, Catherine is joined by Jenny Ortega who plays the titular character, looking appropriate in a polka dot dress and the signature braids. Guzmán looked on-point in the pinstriped suit as he was accompanied by a striped jumper-clad Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley. The caption read, "@wednesdaynetflix teaser coming tomorrow..." The 52-year-old actress rocked the character’s signature floor-length black dress. The movie is determined to set the tone right just in time for Halloween.

Catherine Zeta-Jones in 'Wednesday'

Over the years, the Addams Family has taken a lot of forms. From offbeat CGI animations to Broadway musicals, from 1960s-era TV shows to big-budget 1990s movies. This time, Tim Burton is taking on the torch as he is the executive producer and has directed four of the eight episodes, to help shape the overall feel of the series. To make Catherine's character more authentic, Burton brought his longtime collaborator and four-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood as costume designer. Atwood is responsible for Morticia's signature vampire-chic look. Netflix has also released an official trailer of 'Wednesday':

At the Emmy Awards in 2021, Catherine told ET, "I'm just about to start shooting in Romania," she shared. "I'm so excited to be working with the great Tim Burton, and the makeup and costume designer who I've worked with before, and with Luis Guzmán, playing Gomez, who I worked with on Traffic. It's going to be a really great camaraderie. I'm really looking forward to it." Other cast members announced for 'Wednesday' include Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Georgie Farmer, Naomi Ogawa, and Moosa Mostafa.
