Wednesday season two | Will Netflix lose the rights to its hit TV show?

Netflix might lose the streaming rights to its hit TV show Wednesday, which starred Jenna Ortega in the title role.

Wednesday has been a huge hit for Netflix. Not only has Wednesday’s iconic dance moves gone viral on TikTok, the series gathered 341.2million hours of viewing worldwide in its opening week, according to the streaming giant.

While a second season has not been confirmed (yet), it would seem silly for MGM, the studio behind Wednesday, not to continue the story of the first-born of the Addams family. 

Unfortunately for Netflix, Amazon has just gone and bought MGM, meaning that if there will be a second season for the hit show, it might not stream on Netflix.

Netflix simply had the distribution rights to the show and it might still gain them for potential subsequent seasons, but it’s not quite set in stone anymore. 

As reported by Deadline last March, the two companies’ $8.5 billion deal closed, bringing a staggering slate of over 4,000 films, 17,000 episodes of TV, 180 Oscars and 100 Emmy awards under Amazon’s wing. 

If Wednesday does indeed get renewed for another season, it may very well stream on Prime Video instead of Netflix. Amazon might be keen on getting the Golden Globe-nominated show on its own streaming service if Netflix can’t convince them otherwise. 

Wednesday is nominated for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Ortega is also up for a Best Actress prize for her impeccable performance as the titular character.
