Netflix has had an up and down sort of 12 months. Sure, it skilled its first-ever subscriber dip and laid folks off, nevertheless it additionally had a collection of giant hits. And that’s nonetheless ongoing. According to Deadline, the brand new collection Wednesday clocked in a staggering 341.23 million hours seen throughout its first full week of availability, setting a brand new report for the streamer.
Specifically, that report is “most hours watched for an English-language show on Netflix.” The report was beforehand held by Stranger Things, which notched 335 million hours seen after season 4 premiered earlier this 12 months. This is actually a very good signal for the brand new present, an Addams Family spinoff directed by Tim Burton. According to Netflix, 50 million households tuned in for this primary week.
Or course, each Wednesday and Stranger Things fall fairly far wanting the most-watched present in Netflix’s historical past, which is Squid Game: throughout its peak week; the Korean-language drama racked up a stupefying 571.8 million hours seen.
Wednesday beats viewing report for Stranger Things, nonetheless can’t topple Squid Game
Squid Game and Stranger Things are already confirmed to be coming again for extra episodes, and I feel we are able to safely assume that Wednesday will be a part of them. I like that two out of the three most watched exhibits on Netflix aren’t from large franchises. Viva la creativity!
That mentioned, Wednesday seems to be fairly enjoyable, and is getting stable critiques. As the title suggests, the present zeroes in on Wednesday Addams, performed right here by Jenna Ortega, as she goes off to an ooky-spooky boarding faculty for creepy youngsters. The present additionally stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Fred Arimisen, Gwendoline Christie and Cristina Ricci, who performed Wednesday in The Addams Family films from the ’90s.
