‘Wednesday’ fully took over our lives when it dropped on Netflix and we’re all okay with that.

Netflix’s Wednesday broke records for the number of hours viewed in its first week, surpassing Stranger Things 4 with a massive 341.2 million.

It also quickly became the Number One show on the platform in 83 countries, and we have to admit that we may have rewatched all eight episodes a couple of times already...

As fans celebrate the news that Wednesday is officially getting a second season, we've got all the behind-the-scenes moments to fill the Wednesday-shaped hole in your lives until we get new episodes.
