As per ComicBook, this marks the streamer’s biggest week ever for an English-language TV series. It has successfully taken over Stranger Things Season 4’s spot that topped the chart on two different occasions. Season 4 Vol.1 debuted at a 335 Million hour week followed by Vol.2 which debuted at 301 Million hours for its first week. Another major Netflix hit that came close enough to this mark was the true crime series Dahmer. It got close enough to the 300 Million mark, topping out at 299 Million in one week.

Can Wednesday Hit The 1 Billion Hours Mark In 28 Days?

If the trend continues, the series will soon close to over 1 Billion hours in its first 28 days of release. With such big numbers tagged to the title, it is just time before the streamer hands out an official renewal notice to Wednesday makers. As of now, the series hasn’t been renewed for a second season and it’s too soon to tell if it will be.

Despite not having an official renewal status, the creative team is way ahead with the show’s future. In a recent interview, showrunners Miles Millar and Alfred Gough teased that they already have ideas for three more seasons.

Millar noted, “For us, it’s always looking at the future, and when we sit down to create a show, it’s looking at multiple seasons, ideally. That’s never expected, but that’s the anticipation that hopefully, the show is successful. So you always lay out at least three or four seasons’ worth of potential storylines for the characters. It can evolve and change.”

What Is The Addams Family Spinoff Series About?
