‘Wednesday’ Becomes Netflix’s Third Most Popular English-Language Series Ever

Wednesday is at the top of her class!

The Netflix series has become the third most popular English-language series of all time on the platform, behind Stranger Things 4 and Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

Since it premiered on 16 November, Wednesday has amassed 752.52 million hours viewed. Should fans continue watching the Tim Burton series, Wednesday may just take over Dahmer and move up to second place. Dahmer scored 856.22 million hours. Stranger Things 4 still reigns supreme at 1.35 billion hours.


Both Stranger Things 4 and Dahmer surpassed 1 billion hours viewed within 60 days of release, Wednesday appears to be on track to hit a similar milestone. Wednesday collected 341.23 million hours viewed in its first week on Netflix, and held the number one spot on Netflix’s English TV charts this week, with 411.29 million hours viewed.

According to Netflix, Wednesday has been viewed in about 115 million households and remains number one in 89 countries.


Starring Jenna Ortega (Scream) as Wednesday Addams, the series follows the character’s years as a student at Nevermore Academy, where she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago – all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.

The series also stars Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Naomi J Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, Riki Lindhome. Christina Ricci also appears in the series, as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Fred Arimisen and Isaac Ordonez.
