Wednesday may leave Netflix for Amazon Prime

After Wednesday’s resounding success, an immediate renewal of the series was expected. Instead, Netflix has been very quiet, and the reason for that may be a change in the platform for the series.

With a dance and plenty of charm, Wednesday conquered the Internet in a matter of days. Since then, we have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of a second season. Although the series was an instant hit, beating out former Netflix number one Stranger Things, it was strangely quiet.

So ask yourself, why hasn’t there been any news from Netflix? The answer may be rooted in Amazon’s purchase of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. They are the studio behind Wednesday and own it. While Netflix currently appears to have the streaming rights, that may now change.

Wednesday: Netflix’s Ray Of Hope

Netflix is ​​not in our best graces at the moment. Especially in recent months they canceled several rising series after a very short time. This, combined with their controversial decision to ban password sharing, understandably has many people doubting their subscription. I mean, it’s hard to get involved when you know they’re probably just going to get into it.

Given this damage, Netflix really needs to keep Wednesday on its platform. Otherwise, the service will lose us even more.

The obstacle is probably Amazon. Last March, the giant bought MGM for the insane sum of 8.5 billion dollars. With that, they most likely own the rights to the series and might just put it on Prime. From a business perspective, that would probably be a smarter move than lending it to your nemesis.

All of this means that Netflix really needs to do some magic at the negotiating table to keep the series as one of its exclusives.
