"Wednesday" was Renewed for Season 2 by Netflix Following the Outstanding Success of Season 1

It has been reported that Netflix plans to renew the popular and successful series "Wednesday" for a second season early in the new year. "Wednesday" stars Jenna Ortega as the iconic character Wednesday Addams, based on the popular franchise The Addams Family. The show follows Wednesday as she tries to solve a mystery involving a monster at her school, all while maintaining her signature emotionless personality.

Director Tim Burton executive produced and directed the first four episodes of the show, bringing his signature style and artistic vision to the series. Along with Burton, creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar also served as executive producers for the show. "Wednesday" has received critical acclaim for its unique take on the Addams Family franchise and Ortega's portrayal of Wednesday. The actress's dedication to the role has added a sense of authenticity to the show that has resonated with audiences. Despite Wednesday's emotionless personality, Ortega has managed to inject subtle moments of vulnerability into her performance that have drawn viewers in and helped to make the character more relatable.

"Wednesday" Becomes a Global Phenomenon and Breaks Netflix Records

It is no surprise that "Wednesday" has achieved such enormous success and has become a global phenomenon. The show has broken numerous records for Netflix, with its debut achieving a total of 341.23 million hours viewed in its first week. This made "Wednesday" the most viewed English-language series in a week for Netflix, surpassing the previously leading show "Stranger Things." "Wednesday" has also recently become the second highest-viewed English-language series on Netflix history, just behind season 4 of "Stranger Things." The show's connection to the beloved Addams Family franchise surely played a role in getting audiences to pay attention to "Wednesday" before its release, but it is the perfect casting of Ortega and the authenticity she brings to the role that has helped to make the show a true success.
