What are the show’s ratings?
Tim Burton’s remake of the iconic Addams Family called Wednesday has been streaming on Netflix for over two weeks now. The show arrived on Netflix on November 23rd.
By 27th November, the first season which consists of 8 episodes had amassed a total of 341.2 million hours of streaming.
The show also made it into the top 10 series in around 93 countries which was last achieved by season 4 of Stranger Things which had amassed a total of 286.8 million hours of streaming in the first three days of its release.
The show’s success can be attributed to its connection with the Addams Family franchise, star-studded cast and having the iconic Tim Burton as the director.
What is the show about?
Wednesday is a supernatural programme that in order to make an appeal to a wider audience makes a crucial distinction with its darker themes, normalizes being an outsider and provides nostalgic memories for many generations of viewers.
The show revolves around the time spent by Wednesday Addams as a student at Nevermore Academy whilst navigating friendships and new complicated connections at Nevermore.
In the midst of it all, Wednesday tries to control her developing psychic gift, stop a horrific killing spree that has terrorised the town, and uncover the otherworldly mystery that ensnared her parents 25 years ago.
Will there be a season 2 to the show?
As of right now, the Netflix has not announced whether the hit show will be renewed for a second season.
Jenna Ortega, who plays Wednesday in the show, also had some preferences on what she would want to see from her character in potential future seasons.
She said to a news source, “I kind of want her to be darker, I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of a competitiveness. Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?’”
Wednesday’s co-showrunners Miles Millar and Al Gough said that they had plot lines mapped out for four seasons.
