Is The Addams Family making a comeback? According to Deadline, Director Tim Burton is developing a revival based on the classic TV show.
The original sitcom follows the unusual Addams family, who are fixated on all things dark and macabre. Based on cartoons by Charles Addams, the original live-action comedy series ran on ABC from 1964 to 1966. It’s spawned several film and series adaptations, including the hit 1991 movie starring Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston.
Although nothing official has been announced, Burton is reportedly shopping around his version of The Addams Family. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are attached as showrunners.
The new series “would be set in present times and be from the perspective of Wednesday Addams and what the world would look like to her in 2020.”
