Wednesday is in danger of leaving Netflix.
The hit series, which stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, landed on Netflix in November last year. It went on to become a huge hit for the streaming giant.
Wednesday surpassed Stranger Things as the most watched English-language series on Netflix in a single week, clocking in at more than 400 million hours.
Fans have lauded the show’s content and Ortega’s acting as the morose adolescent, with many anticipating what appears to be an inevitable second season.
Despite its enormous success, Netflix has yet to renew Wednesday for a second season. The success of the programme almost ensures that one will occur, but the issue is where?
Netflix will be keen to keep Wednesday on its platform, but the streamer might not have a choice in the matter due to the fact the series is a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) product.
As reported by Deadline last year, Amazon and MGM closed an $8.5bn (£7.06bn) merger – meaning the rights to Wednesday may go with it.
This suggests that Season 2 may debut on Amazon’s streaming service, Prime Video, rather than Netflix.
Of course, this is not a foregone conclusion. Netflix and Amazon may reach an agreement to continue hosting the popular series.
Netflix subscribers can also take some assurance in the fact that Amazon have stated it is not planning to make all MGM content exclusive to Prime Video, as per Deadline.
