The Independent had reported that the upcoming seasons of Wednesday could be available to stream on an Amazon-owned platform, which was most likely to be Prime Video. This report came from speculations following MGM getting acquired by Amazon. MGM is the studio behind the spinoff show. Since MGM was now under Amazon, the reports speculated that any and all MGM projects could be streamed on Prime Video.

However, IndieWire soon put an end to these rumors stating that even before MGM was acquired by Amazon, the Studios had a deal with Netflix. This deal made sure that the series would be on Netflix to stay. Fans on Twitter sure were happy to hear that Wednesday Addams isn’t leaving Netflix.

What’s On Netflix, too, talked to a few industry experts and sources about the whole situation and came to the conclusion that The Independent’s reports were nothing but pure speculations. According to the outlet, the foreseeable future of Wednesday is in Netflix’s hands. This means that even if fans don’t get a season two, season 1 will be available to stream on Netflix till 2032. However, given that the first season ended on a bit of a cliffhanger thanks to Wednesday’s new smartphone, a second season doesn’t seem too far-fetched.
