Season 2 of “Wednesday” will not be broadcast on Netflix? Details inside
Netflix’s hit series Wednesday the potential second season may not air on the streaming platform.
The hit series, which stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, landed on Netflix in November last year and became an ultimate hit.
Despite the series’ huge success, Wednesday has yet to be renewed by Netflix for a second series – with nothing confirmed, the renewal may seek a new channel outside of its original broadcast host.
Netflix will be keen to keep Wednesday on its platform, but the streamer might not have a choice in the matter as the series is a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) product.
According to Deadline, Amazon and MGM have completed an $8.5bn (£7.06bn) merger, which means Wednesday’s rights could go with it.
The report suggests that Wednesday’s second season could premiere on Amazon’s streaming giant Prime Video, rather than Netflix.
According to Netflix, Wednesday dethroned a record held by stranger things season four – with 335 million hours – and had the most viewing time in a single week for an English-language series on the streaming channel, racking up over 400 million hours in a week.
Wednesday is currently available on Netflix.
