Netflix faces challenges with one of its top shows, hinting at larger issues.

As the prominent site in the streaming landscape, Netflix boasts an amazing 260 million paid subscribers, a far cry from its DVD-by-mail origins with Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, now raking in an annual revenue of $32.126 billion.

While Netflix’s extensive content library has been pivotal in its success, certain shows, such as the hugely popular ‘Stranger Things,’ have played a significant role in propelling the platform to new heights. This 80s horror-comedy coming-of-age series has shattered records, solidifying its place as one of Netflix’s most-watched franchises.

Shows like ‘Squid Game‘ have challenged traditional Western perceptions of quality programming, standing out with its Korean-language format and securing the highest view count on Netflix.

Additionally, series like ‘Bridgerton,’ ‘Black Mirror,’ ‘Suits,’ ‘Yellowstone,’ and others have been instrumental in Netflix’s continued growth and status as an entertainment powerhouse.

Considering Netflix has just confirmed that they will be initiating a price hike over the holidays, it is their tried and true creations that will have their subscribers paying monthly, as they await for the new season of their favorite show to drop. Now, that the strike has come to an end, many Netflix projects are back in development.

As we mentioned earlier, here is the complete list of shows that have returned to filming.

  • Abbott Elementry
  • The Rookie
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Bob Hearts Abishola
  • NCIS
  • Tracker
  • Young Sheldon
  • FBI
  • FBI: International
  • FBI: Most Wanted
  • Chicago Fire
  • Chicago PD
  • Chicago Med
  • Law & Order
  • Law & Order: SVU
  • The Irrational
  • Quantum Leap
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • Grown-ish
  • Criminal Minds: Evolution
  • The Sandman

The absence of ‘Wednesday‘ from recent listings surprised many, especially considering its record-breaking viewership and the CEO’s prior assurances of priority post-strike.

This spinoff from ‘The Addams Family,’ centered around Wednesday Addams, became the most-viewed series in history, accumulating 1,718,800,000 viewing hours. Led by Jenna Ortega and directed by Tim Burton, the show, set in the supernatural Nevermore Academy, garnered immense popularity but also faced hurdles.

Issues arose with cast departures: Thora Birch left due to creative differences, while Percy Hynes White’s exit followed accusations against him. Netflix’s loss of rights to ‘Wednesday,’ reported by Ticker, came as a shock, hinting at potential contractual disputes or a better offer from a rival platform.

The implications are significant, potentially affecting future seasons and leaving fans uncertain about the show’s availability. While Netflix hasn’t confirmed this, it adds to the uncertainties surrounding the show’s second season, with the lead actors focusing on other projects like ‘Beetlejuice 2.’
