Over the past few years, there has been an increase in streaming services. While it may have seemed as though Netflix would finally lose its position as the king of streaming, the black and red platform has consistently found a way to reassert its dominance. With the release of the Addams Family spinoff Wednesday, which ultimately achieved extraordinary success, last year was historic for the firm.
It didn’t take long for the Jenna Ortega-led series to surpass Netflix’s Stranger Things as one of the most talked-about shows on the planet, which is no small feat. But just as it appeared like Netflix would maintain its successful working relationship with the show’s producer Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, a recent report rocked the streaming industry to its very foundation.
If you haven’t heard, Amazon and MGM completed their massive $8.5 billion merger last year, which suggests that the popular series may transfer platforms this year. It’s interesting that Netflix hasn’t made any announcements about Wednesday‘s second season, which has fueled rumors that the network has lost one of its most popular shows.
After hearing the news, viewers expressed their opinions about Wednesday’s potential move to Prime Video on social media. Surprisingly, the majority of them are in favor of the idea, with some saying that Netflix deserved it for canceling shows like 1899 after only one season and Warrior Nun, which ran for two.
Currently, none of the parties concerned have addressed the situation, but it is undeniable that Netflix would suffer a great deal if Wednesday were to be lost. The show might suffer if it were to air on a lesser-known platform, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
The whole first season of Wednesday is streamable on Netflix.
