According to Variety only Squid Game and Stranger Things Season 4 have done the same to date.
Starring Jenna Ortega in the lead role, the Tim Burton Addams Family spin-off not only drew the crowds, but also impressed critics.
Netflix made the announcement on social media with a video of Wednesday saying; “Over the past few weeks I’ve been hunted, haunted, and mimicked millions of times across the internet. It’s been pure torture. Thank you.”
Along with its streaming success, Wednesday has also become a global phenomenon after one if its dancing scenes became an internet sensation copied all over the world.

But in true Wednesday style, she’s not letting the success go to her head as the video ends with her saying, “Honestly, I wish I cared a little more”.
No new release date has been announced yet.
