Wednesday, the first series signed by Tim Burton, reaches the enormous milestone of one billion hours viewed by Netflix users, a result achieved in the history of the great n only by two other titles.

The series is a teen-drama with thriller and supernatural elements, characterized by gothic and an unedited version of Wednesday Addams: the protagonist is played by Jenna Ortega, who together with Burton manages to bring a renewed version of the iconic character to the small screen.

A record series

Netflix ranks the popularity of its shows based on the total number of hours viewed exclusively in the first 28 days of release, since Wednesday arrived in the catalog on November 23rd, this means that Burton’s streak has less than a week to hit new records.

With 1.02 billion hours of viewing, Wednesday surpassed series like Dahmer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and House of Paper, which have not yet reached the billion hours. The quirky teen-flavored supernatural series took third place of this ranking, thus being overtaken by Netflix’s two greatest hits.

Netflix’s most watched series

Some of you will have already figured it out, we are talking about the first season of Squid Game and the fourth season of Stranger Things, with 1.65 billion and 1.35 billion hours viewed, respectively. Over the last couple of years, more and more we find ourselves reporting these rankings based on views released by the big n, unlike past years where Netflix categorically avoided sharing this type of data, even with insiders. Beau Willimon, the creator of House of Cards, said that the company did not want to share even with him the viewed hours of the famous series with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

Witnessing this change is a new site launched by Netflix in November, where the rankings of the most popular series and films are published, as well as a global ranking of the most watched titles of all time. The lists are updated weekly and ranked by the total number of hours viewed by subscribers. This is the most transparency that Netflix has ever achieved, but it is also true that these information is also intended to target subscribers and constantly update them on the most popular titles.

The great results of Wednesday and Netflix

Recently Wednesday also had other awards, receiving two Golden Globe nominations for Best Musical or Comedy Series, while Jenna Ortega will compete for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series. Tim Burton’s series on the Addams Family, since its debut, has consistently remained among the most viewed on Netflix, now only time will tell us if Wednesday will be able to surpass even Stranger Things and Squid Game.

Despite the numerous streaming subscription services on the market, Netflix is ​​doing quite well as evidenced by its 209 million registered subscribers during 2021. The big N still remains the largest streaming service in the world today and Wednesday’s massive success and collaboration with Tim Burton will only help it stay number one.
