New art for Netflix’s hit series Wednesday turns the show’s already iconic dance scene into an anime in a gorgeous illustration. Wednesday stars Jenna Ortega as the protagonist Wednesday Addams, of the famous The Addams Family franchise. The new series follows Wednesday as she tries to solve a monster mystery happening at her school. Wednesday’s emotionless personality makes her hard to connect with, which leaves the girl with few options of people to turn to for help. The series hails from creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville). Visionary director Tim Burton also injected Wednesday with his signature style, directing the show’s first 4 episodes.
When Will Netflix Announce Wednesday Season 2?
Numbers have shown just how successful the series actually was for Netflix. Wednesday broke a huge Netflix record right out of the gate, with the supernatural series achieving a great total of 341.23 million hours viewed in its first week. It became the most viewed English-language series in a week for Netflix, surpassing Stranger Things season 4. The only TV series Wednesday wasn’t able to beat was Squid Game, which proved itself a juggernaut for the streamer, totaling a massive 571.8 million hours viewed at its peak.
Given its record-breaking run, Wednesday’s season 2 announcement feels like only a matter of time. Netflix will want to keep the streak going with another season, and fans are eager to find out who Wednesday’s new stalker is in season 2. Netflix might want to wait until Wednesday has become the streamer’s most viewed English-language series of all-time, which could very well happen under the 60-day threshold used to measure the rankings. Fans need to keep their eyes peeled, as news confirming Wednesday season 2 might be revealed before December comes to an end.
