Jenna Ortega became an overnight sensation with Wednesday. The show has left behind the much-hyped show Stranger Things with respect to popularity on Netflix. The second season of Wednesday is also in the making as it was officially announced by the billion-dollar streaming platform recently.

Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Becomes The Most Popular English Language Netflix Show

The popular streaming platform Netflix has reinvented its rating system for all the shows. Netflix would be reporting the average viewership for its programming with respect to views, which would be calculated as hours viewed divided by the total runtime of any particular show. While hours viewed would still be available, the streamer would be using this new method for its Top 10 rankings, including the all-time Most Popular shows too.

The current metric system has come up with some major shake-ups like Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday has taken over Millie Bobby Brown’s Stranger Things 4 as the most popular English-language series of all time on Netflix. This seems like a big win for Wednesday as Stranger Things had a whopping 13-hour runtime. It was next to impossible for any show to beat Stranger Things 4. Wednesday went on to surpass Stranger Things 4 by garnering 341.23 million hours viewed in its first week.

While the Squid Game is still Netflix’s most popular series ever, even after the new metric system has been activated. The serial killer drama Dahmer was positioned in third place, but the Bridgerton Season 1 overtook its successor in fourth. Whereas a few shows like Inventing Anna and Lucifer were bumped off. In accordance with the current rating system, Queen Charlotte‘s failure to make it onto the most popular list in its 28-day window, was unsuccessful. The series has only been available for 47 days on the streaming platform, this clearly indicates that it still has plenty of time to make its way into the most popular list.

Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Season 2 Is Confirmed By Netflix

The second season of Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday has already been announced and fans just can’t keep calm. During an interview with the media house Entertainment Tonight, the actor straightaway mentioned the second season on Netflix while sharing her own set of ideas and hopes for the upcoming season. She said-

“I kind of want [Wednesday] to be darker, play things so safe” in future episodes. There are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of a competitiveness. Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?’ I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero.”

The big news was announced on Twitter by Netflix recently. The creators and stars of Wednesday were super excited for a second installment of the project. The co-showrunner Miles Millar spoke with TVLine  during an interview about continuing the series and mentioned-

“We felt like we just touched the surface with those characters and the actors are so amazing in those roles.…Catherine [Zeta-Jones] is, I think, an iconic Morticia. The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is also essential to the show, and the idea that Wednesday is trying to forge her own path outside the family is important.”

If Netflix is following the same pattern then there is a possibility that Wednesday would need the next six months to film and almost eight months of postproduction, which would lead to an early to mid-2024 release date for the Jenna Ortega show.
