A spin-off series of The Addams Family franchise, Wednesday became an instant hit with Netflix viewers. In its first seven days, it racked up 341.2million hours of viewing worldwide, dethroning Stranger Things season four as the platform’s most-viewed series in an opening week.
Despite this, a second season is yet to be officially confirmed by the streaming service. And with the show’s studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) recently being purchased by Amazon, it has been suggested that Netflix may lose the rights to the series.
Created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the series follows Wednesday Addams’ life as a student at supernatural boarding school Nevermore Academy.
In a four-star review of season one, NME wrote: “If there’s one thing fans of The Addams Family should know before watching Netflix reboot Wednesday, it’s to expect the unexpected.
“Yes, the look – the pigtails, pale skin, pinstripes – is similar to the ‘90s classic. Yes, she remains po-faced and prickly. Yes, it’s still set in a creepy mansion. But dip a toe beyond the first few episodes, and you’ll find a very different Wednesday to the one we’ve come to know.”
