After a record-breaking two-week run, Wednesday has now been knocked off Netflix’s top spot.
Not only is Wednesday on track to become one of the streaming giant’s most watched English language shows ever, but it’s rebooted Tim Burton’s career and sky-rocketed actor Jenna Ortega to international stardom.
Because of its rip-roaring success, it’s expected Netflix will announce a second season for Wednesday, although nothing has been greenlit yet.
Watch Wednesday’s bloopers below:
According to IndieWire, Wednesday was watched by over 115 million households for a total of 752.52 million hours during the first twelve days it spent on Netflix.
That means Wednesday currently takes third place on Netflix’s list of top 10 English language shows, with Monster: the Jeffrey Dahmer Story in second place and Stranger Things 4 holding the top spot.
Both of those blockbuster shows logged over a billion hours watched in the first 60 days of tracking.
As for the show that caused Wednesday to topple, well, the docuseries’ name probably won’t come as much of a surprise.
Yep, you guessed it, Harry and Meghan overtook Wednesday.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s show chronicles their life after leaving the Royal Family, and has been the subject of numerous headlines since it hit Netflix.
The first volume of the long-awaited series finally arrived on 8 December and has left people seriously divided, with some customers threatening to cancel their subscriptions because of it
The synopsis for the series reads: "In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.
"Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.
"With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family's relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple's love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other.
"From the critically-acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus, Harry & Meghan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history."
The documentary notably features a disclaimer noting that the Royal Family had declined to comment on the show’s content.
The last three episodes of Harry & Meghan drop 15 December.
