"Wednesday," Tim Burton's prequel series focusing on the teenage daughter of the legendary Addams family, beat the hit Netflix series in terms of episode streaming hours



Queen Wednesday:

"Wednesday" (Wednesday), the new Netflix comedy horror series, smashed the streaming platform's record for the most hours of viewing in one week, thereby dethroning the fourth season of "Stranger Things".

The "Addams Family" spinoff, which focuses on the teenage daughter of the famously morbid family, has amassed 341 hours of viewing since it launched on Nov. 23, surpassing the 335 million viewing hours of "Eleven and Friends."

Because of this, "Monster: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer" slipped from second place to third place with its 300 million viewing hours.

All three of these series/seasons, by the way, were launched in the last six months, which only indicates that Netflix continues to make a splash and hit the taste of its viewers.

"Wednesday", as mentioned, does take place in the world of "The Addams Family", but mainly deals with the daughter of the family and her exploits at the Nevermore Boarding School, after she is expelled from her regular high school.

Jenna Ortega ("Jane the Virgin") plays the main role of Wednesday very successfully, while Gwendoline Christie (Brian from "Game of Thrones") plays the headmistress of the boarding school, who once studied with Morticia Addams, Wednesday's mother (Catherine Zeta 'Vance in a guest role).

It should also be noted that Tim Burton directed the first four episodes of the series, while Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in the blockbuster "The Addams Family" from 1991 and is still very much identified with the character, plays Marilyn Thornhill - the mother of the boarding school's dormitory - in the new series .

Although it is still (very) early to announce that "Wednesday" has been renewed by Netflix for a second season, the tremendous success among viewers along with the reviews, the probability that this will happen is very high.
