Jenna Ortega is strange and unusual. Or at least she can be seen in the new teaser for Netflix Wednesday.

On June 6, the streamer threw a sneak peek at the Addams-focused Wednesday series directed by Tim Burtonand gives fans a first look at Ortega’s transformation into the macabre teenager.

The video begins with the actress braiding her dark hair into Wednesday’s signature hairstyle. And while ominous music plays, she steps into the spotlight, sporting a look worthy of two snaps. We’re, of course, referring to Wednesday’s return of the iconic black baby doll dress.

Ortega is not alone in the teaser, however, as she is joined by Thing, the disembodied hand who is part of the creepy and wacky family. Back in June, Thing starred in its own trailer and formulated the ominous warning: “A serious terror is approaching. Her name is… Wednesday.”

What to expect from the show? Wednesday follows that Scream alum as the 16-year-old title character who embarks on a new adventure as a student at Nevermore Academy. The series, which Netflix dubbed a “detective, supernaturally infused mystery,” will follow her “as she attempts to master her emerging psychic abilities, foil a monstrous rampage that has been terrorizing the local town, and solve the murder mystery that she involved parents 25 years ago.”
