Netflix may lose Wednesday for season two.

The Addams Family spinoff was one of the biggest shows to debut on the streaming service in 2022.

Since dropping on the streaming platform, it’s been viewed by a staggering 115 million people for a total of 752.52 million hours, as reported by Indiewire.

Although it’s not officially been announced, fans believe the second season of Wednesday is inevitable.

However, it’s not entirely clear where viewers will be able to watch the comedy horror.

Despite the show being available to stream on Netflix, it’s actually a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) product.

According to Deadline, MGM has secured an $8.5 billion (£7.06bn) merger deal with Amazon, which potentially means that the rights to Wednesday could go with it.

So the hit programme could stream on the company’s own service, Prime Video.

However, Amazon has also stated it is not planning to make all MGM content exclusive to Prime Video.

Although it’s not officially been announced, Wednesday’s creators, Al Gough and Miles Milar, have publically spoken about a second season and what fans should expect.

Gough told The Hollywood Reporter that following the events of the first series, there are still plenty of storylines to explore.

He explained: “We wanna sort of explore and sort of complicate all of those relationships going forward.

“The school was closed when they left, which gave us the most possibilities for season two, and I think that’s something that we’re excited to explore.”

Gough added that one possible storyline they would explore further is the relationship between Wednesday and her mum Morticia.

He said: “The other thing that’s really interesting is to continue to explore the Wednesday-Morticia mother-daughter relationship as well, which now that Morticia knows about the power, it has given her sort of an idea of how that’s going to go.

“How is their relationship going to evolve?”

While Jenna Ortega – who plays the lead role – has also suggested ideas she would liked for her character in future seasons.

In an interview with Pride, the 20-year-old said she could potentially see a romantic relationship happening between Wednesday and her roommate Enid Sinclair (Emma Myers).

She said: “In a perfect world, we would have been a thing.”

While in a chat with Elite Daily, Myers also discussed the possibility.

She said: “You know what I always say: ‘And they were roommates’.

“Jenna and I would say that all the time to each other.

“And that’s all that needs to be said – I think that gets the message across.”
