Only a week after its debut on Netflix, the Addam Family's spinoff series Wednesday has topped the viewership of Stranger Thing's fourth season.

Taking to Twitter, Netflix announced that Wednesday was watched for 341.23 million hours in the first week after its premiere on November 23, setting a new record for an English-language series on the streaming portal.

The post read, "Wednesday now holds the record for most hours viewed in a week for a series on Netflix, with 341.2 million hours!"

Netflix also revealed that Tim Burton's directorial Wednesday is leading the viewership in a total of 83 countries, surpassing Stranger Things season 4 which was viewed for 335.01 million hours during the first week of its release.
