After its first season, which was a big hit and starred Jenna Ortega as the title character, Wednesday is said to be in danger of leaving Netflix.
The show about young Wednesday Addams was an instant hit on the popular streaming service, even beating out shows like Stranger Things regarding how many people watched.
When it came out in November, the show was a massive hit for the streaming giant, and people watched it all the way through. But even though it was the most-watched English-language show on Netflix in its first week (with more than 400 million hours of viewing), the idea has not yet been brought back for a second season.
Jenna Ortega, who played the iconic character, and Tim Burton, who was in charge of the project, both got a lot of praise for their work.
After the production’s huge success, there seems likely to be another round of action, but since nothing is set in stone, the creation may look for a new home outside of its original host.
Wednesday is made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), so Netflix will probably want to keep it on its list. However, it may not have a choice if it wants to keep Wednesday.
Last year, Deadline said that rival streaming services Amazon and MGM had signed a deal worth $8.5 billion (£7.06 billion) that could have given them the rights to Wednesday.
If you follow that line of thought, it’s possible that Amazon Prime Video will show more Addams Family adventures next instead of Netflix. But the giant isn’t out of luck yet. Netflix may make a deal with Amazon to keep the hit series, and the Jeff Bezos-founded site said it has no plans to make all MGM content available only on its site.
Even though there are questions about where the next movie will take place, the producers have reportedly confirmed that they are looking for places to film and writers for the new stories.
