After decades, interest is still high for The Addams Family. Years after they had their last live action film and after a successful animated movie, the Addams return for a new series on Netflix from the king of goth, Tim Burton. Fortunately for Burton, the show is doing massive numbers on the streaming outlet and is filling a void that was left by Sabrina after its cancellation. These new tales of Wednesday Addams seem to be ready to also fill in a blank while viewers await the final season of Stranger Things. 

The brand new show has toppled Stranger Things premiere numbers by debuting with over 341.23 million hours logged in its first week. Season four of Stranger Things previously held that record with 335 million hours in its first week of streaming. However, Wednesday still has an uphill battle to beat Squid Game's  massive record of 571.9 million hours of viewing during its premiere. 

Wednesday was also able to break into the top 10 in 93 different countries and has been viewed in over 50 million homes. When speaking with TVLine, creators Al Gough and Miles Millar said they are really hoping for a second season:

"The series is really about a girl who sees the world in black and white and learning there are shades of gray. I think like any relationship or any friendship it can get complicated by other factors. It's never going to be smooth sailing." said Gough.
