Devilishly Delightful New Wednesday Addams Merchandise Just Waiting To Be Summoned!

It’s not every full and spooky moon when a character from a well-loved TV show spins out and becomes a hit on a show all of their own, but that’s precisely what’s happened with the Addams Family’s gloomily dispositioned daughter, Wednesday Addams and we’re SO here for it.

Since the eagerly anticipated series Wednesday debuted on Netflix at the end of last year, her darkly comic exploits after being sent off to boarding school at the Nevermore Academy have kept us gripped, as she taps into her psychic powers and attempts to solve a mystery that her parents, Gomez and Morticia, were inadvertently involved in a quarter of a century ago. So much drama!

With her razor-sharp, pithy delivery and brooding energy, Jenna Ortega has arguably now become as synonymous with her portrayal of Wednesday as Christina Ricci (who now plays Marylin Thornhill) did with the role back in the 90s film series.

Since the series flew into our lives like a spooked Crow, we know that you’re as addicted to Wednesday as we are, and we’ve heard your cries for Wednesday merchandise loud and clear.

Working some magic, it’s a big Thing style thumbs ups, you’ll be suitably vilified to know that your requests have been answered and our official Wednesday T-Shirts, accessories and gifts have now here and ready to be 'snapped' up!
