When it comes to spooky figures spanning comics, TV, and film, few characters resonate with Halloween better than the adorable misfits of The Addams Family. The distinct charm of the wealthy, albeit macabre household is so popular that last year’s The Addams Family animated feature film grossed $203 million worldwide on a $24 million budget.
Today, MGM has just confirmed that the sequel to The Addams Familyis scheduled to premiere on October 2021.
