Wednesday is reportedly in danger of leaving Netflix following its smash-hit first season starring Jenna Ortega in the titular role. 

The series that tells the story of young Wednesday Addams was an instant hit on the popular streaming service beating out the likes of Stranger Things for viewing numbers. 

Landing on screens in November, the show scored massive points for the streaming giant and had audiences glued from start to finish. 

However, despite becoming the platform’s most-watched English language programme in its first week – racking up more than 400 million hours – the concept is yet to be renewed by Netflix for a second run. 

The project’s leading lady Jenna Ortega received an outpouring of praise for her portrayal of the iconic character as did Tim Burton for his direction. 

After its great success, another round of action from the production surely seems inevitable but with nothing confirmed the creation may seek a new home outside of its original host.

Netflix will no doubt be keen to keep Wednesday on its books but due to the show being a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) product – it may not have any choice in the matter. 

Last year, it was reported by Deadline that competitor streaming service Amazon and MGM signed an $8.5billion (£7.06bn) merger that potentially left the rights to Wednesday in their hands.

If that line of thought is to be followed, it could be Amazon Prime Video that showcases more Addams adventures next over a continuation of episodes on Netflix.

However, not all hope is lost for the giant as Netflix may propose a deal with Amazon in order to retain the hit series and according to the same report, the Jeff Bezoz founded outlet said it has no plans to make all MGM content exclusive to their site. 

Despite question marks over the hosting site for the next installment, producers have supposedly confirmed they are in the process of looking for filming locations and seeking out writers for the new storylines. 

Jenna Ortega also previously stated her hopes for Wednesday’s character development in future episodes of the show. 

The 20-year-old said she would like to see Wednesday be bisexual and felt a relationship with her onscreen roommate Enid (Emma Myers) would ideal in a perfect world. has contacted Netflix for comment.
