Wednesday Continues To Dominate Netflix’s Most-Watched List

Wednesday has been revealed to be in talks of producing multiple seasons and is reportedly being renewed for a Season 2 as the show writers are already setting up what’s to come next for the teenage macabre along with its producers looking for new locations for filming. That said, it is no surprise that things are going smoothly for the Jenna Ortega-led show as its streaming record continues to dominate Netflix’s top watched series.
