It’s undeniable that the Addams Family spinoff Netflix released on Wednesday was a huge success, but this week, rumors started to circulate that the second season of the program wouldn’t air on Netflix but rather on Amazon’s Prime Video.
It is revealed that, following the completion of the multi-billion dollar merger between Amazon and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in March 2022, the Jenna Ortega-starring series might be transferred to a different streaming platform. Naturally, it drove users of Netflix into a frenzy, but it appears there’s actually nothing to worry about, at least based on a follow-up article regarding the actual circumstances.
There is absolutely no truth to the current speculations that Wednesday would leave the streaming behemoth, an unnamed insider claimed to IndieWire. Actually, according to the source, the agreement between Netflix and MGM was “sealed” long before Amazon bought the production company.
Even though some sources suggest that Netflix will be Wednesday’s official home for at least 10 years, the exact scope of the aforementioned agreement is now unknown. Does this imply that there will be more than one season of the program? Although we still don’t know for sure, the idea isn’t particularly absurd given how widely accepted it is.
Although the issue hasn’t been addressed by all parties, I guess fans can now put a stop to their concerns that Wednesday would switch streaming services. Business-wise, it makes sense for the show to stay on Netflix as it undoubtedly has a larger audience than Prime Video.
On Netflix, Wednesday‘s entire debut season is available to stream.
