After Wednesday had changed eight schools in the last five years, the parents Gomez and Morticia decide to enroll their daughter Wednesday at Nevermore Academy.

After arriving in Nevermore, Wednesday instantly finds herself in a mix when she witnesses the murder of Rowan who first tries to kill Wednesday stating that her mother had told him that Wednesday would be the end of Nevermore Academy but before he could kill Wednesday, he gets killed by a monster.

That sends an aspiring author, Wednesday into becoming a sleuth to solve this murder mystery and with that, she uncovers secrets about Nevermore and the town of Jericho where the academy is located.

Her investigation gets her to a bitter truth about her ancestor Goody and the town’s founder Joseph Crackstone, finding out both of them were enemies and how Joseph tried to burn the outcasts of Jericho which Goody is able to escape but then he takes his revenge on Joseph later.

It is with the sketch of the Hyde made by Xavier that Uncle Fester is able to make sense of what they’re dealing with which makes Xavier a prime suspect as well but after his arrest after the murder of Dr. Kinbott, Xavier claims that he’s not guilty which has Wednesday dig further until she finds out that it’s Tyler, her love interest who’s the Hyde.

Initially looking like a normie, he seemed to have inherited the monstrous ability from his late mother who was also a Hyde.
