Have you ever felt like you don’t belong? Like a Wednesday Addams in a world full of Barbies? A bit odd, too different to describe? Well then, we’ve got some good news: there’s a very special place for you.
The prestigious and spooky Nevermore Academy is now accepting applications from outcasts from every walk — or lurch — of life. The gothic school is featured in Wednesday, the upcoming live-action Netflix series from the twisted imagination of Tim Burton. The show, which premieres this fall on the streamer, follows Wednesday Addams of the Addams Family as she embarks on her own uniquely terrifying coming-of-age journey.
In the series, Wednesday (played by Jenna Ortega) sets out to solve a decades-old supernatural mystery, stop a monstrous killing spree on the normies, master her emerging psychic ability, and navigate a social life at her new school Nevermore Academy, the place her mother and father first met. And now, you are officially invited to apply to join the antiheroine in the Outcast Class of 2027.
According to the gothic school’s recruitment website, www.NevermoreAcademy.com, Nevermore Academy’s origin story begins in 1791 after being founded to “provide an educational haven” for Outcasts with supernatural gifts.
“Named in honor of its most famous graduate, Edgar Allan Poe, the boarding school is home to werewolves, vampires, sirens, gorgons, and a spectrum of other students with uniquely chilling gifts,” reads the academy’s founding story. “Nestled in the secluded woods of New England, the school grounds are just a brisk 25-minute walk away from the picturesque town of Jericho, one of the original Pilgrim settlements.”
The academy’s recruitment website is darkly curious and enticing, even featuring a lovely video message from Nevermore’s principal, Larissa Weems, and current attending students. The video showcases the very best that Nevermore has to offer, including extracurricular activities like painting and archery and elite classes on werewolf reproduction and Gorgon anatomy.
