There has been an influx of streaming services over the last couple of years and while it may have seemed like Netflix was finally going to get dethroned as the king of streaming, the black and red platform has consistently found a way to reassert its dominance. Last year was monumental for the company with the debut of the Addams Family spinoff Wednesday which end up achieving unprecedented triumph.
The Jenna Ortega-led series quickly became one of the most-talked-about shows on the planet, even beating out Netflix's flagship show Stranger Things which by no means is an easy task. But just when it looked like Netflix will continue its fruitful partnership with the show's producer Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, a recent report shook the world of streaming to its very core.
In case you haven't heard yet, Amazon and MGM closed a whopping $8.5 billion merger last year which means the hit series could be switching platforms this year. Interestingly, Netflix has yet to announce anything related to Wednesday's second season which led to speculation that the company has lost one of its biggest shows.
Following the news, fans took to social media to express their sentiment regarding Wednesday's potential move to Prime Video, and shockingly enough, most of them are on board with the idea with some claiming that Netflix had it coming for canceling shows like 1899 after just one season and Warrior Nun which ran for two.

As it stands, all parties involved have yet to address the matter but there's no denying that losing Wednesday would be a major blow for Netflix. On the other hand, putting it on a lesser-known platform could also hurt the show but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
All episodes of Wednesday's first season are available to stream on Netflix.
