The show is centered around one night in the life of the Addams Family: Passionate parents Gomez and Morticia, the moon-obsessed uncle fester, a kooky grandma, a mischievous Pugsley, their servant lurch and daughter Wednesday, who has fallen in love for the first time. On this night, the Addams meet her boyfriend Lucas and his parents Mal and Alice for what seems to be a regular dinner. However, with secrets being kept, jealousy and ancestors who cannot return to their crypt until love triumphs, Their night ends up being anything but ordinary!
