    It may have taken over a year, but we're finally getting our first look at The Addams Family spinoff series Wednesday — and Jenna Ortega in the titular role.

    Netflix debuted a 15-second teaser trailer for the upcoming series where Jenna can be seen looking as spooky and kooky as ever.

    And TBH, Jenna does look absolutely perfect for the role as she deadpans the camera and The Thing crawls on her shoulder.

    Jenna also shared a black and white selfie in character from inside her dressing room — looking like a 21st century Wednesday.

    The Tim Burton-directed "supernaturally infused mystery" is set to follow Wednesday through her years at the Nevermore Academy.

    As a student, Wednesday must "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."
