Popularity is unprecedented

Netflix's Wednesday is incredibly popular not just because it's set in the Addams Family universe but also because it's so much more than that.

Performance made a lasting impression

Despite gaining some attention from audiences due to its connection to The Addams Family and Tim Burton's direction of the first four episodes, Ortega's performance became the show's most memorable part.

Authenticity blended

The actor's blend of authenticity and the element of the strange world he inhabits enables audiences to relate to Wednesday's more emotionally closed-off character.

Attempts to overtake

Despite Wednesday's valiant efforts to overtake the most popular Netflix original, Stranger Things season 4 was still the most-watched English-language series on Netflix by the end of 2022, with a little over 100 million hours separating the two.
