Wednesday is a Netflix original series and a spin-off of The Addams Family Franchise, which primarily focuses on the titular character, a teenage girl who tries to solve a monster mystery at her school. It stars the newcomer, Jenna Ortega, as Wednesday Addams. The series garnered immense popularity among viewers and has become the third-most watched English-language Netflix series.

At least not for the time being; Wednesday Addams is not a vampire. Especially since the boarding school she attends, Nevermore Academy, has several vampire students who never mention, greet, or refer to Wednesday as one of them. Furthermore, in any previous adaptation of The Addams Family, Wednesday has never been portrayed as a vampire. To be precise, Wednesday is presented mainly as a psychic.

Wednesday Friday Addams is the only daughter of the fictional Addams Family, created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. Wednesday is always shown as skinny, pale-skinned, and having black hair in braided pigtails. She was named after a nursery rhyme containing the line “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” To sum it up, Wednesday Addams is a 16-year-old who is gentle and kind to people who treat her fair and right, but on the other hand, she is cruel to those who mean to harm her or harass her. She studies at Nevermore Academy, a special school for children who are treated as outcasts by society.

She is the elder daughter and has a younger brother named Pugsley Addams, whom she greatly loves and cares about. Her parents' names are Morticia Addams and Gomez Addams. She is extremely intelligent and is a psychic who sees visions of future occurrences.

Wednesday’s family is popularly known as The Addams Family. The Addams family is a satirical inversion of the idealized twentieth-century American family: an eccentric wealthy aristocratic family who delight in the macabre and appear unaware or unconcerned that others find them strange or frightening. Other than Wednesday, The Addams family consists of Wednesday’s mother, Morticia Addams, father, Gomez Addams, and younger brother, Pugsley Addams, portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luiz Guzman, and Issac Ordonez, respectively.

The family appears to be peculiar, eccentric, and strangely weird; one would think that they were monsters such as ghosts or vampires, but they are human beings with a very different kind of lifestyle that separates them from the standard view of society.

No, the Addams Family are not vampires. The family has always been considered human since their creation. Each member has their own quirks, making them all odd by any definition.

The Netflix reimagining, on the other hand, adds a supernatural element to the mix. The Netflix series adds a witchy origin to the Addams family, slightly altering their roots.

Wednesday is subjected to violent visions of past or present events throughout the show. She tries to find answers, and her mother later reveals that they come from a long line of psychics and witches.

Interestingly, multiple depictions of the family over the years have led fans to question whether the members of the Addams Family can even be considered humans due to their oddities bordering on supernatural abilities.
