Hold onto your creepy crawlers and prepare for more kookiness because Netflix is cooking up a second serving of The Addams Family madness!
Rumor has it that the streaming giant is brainstorming a Wednesday spinoff, and this time, it’s all about the one and only Uncle Fester, brought to life by the incomparable Fred Armisen in season one. Yes, that’s right – Uncle Fester is stepping into the limelight, and he’s ready to shine brighter than a full moon on a haunted night!
According to the gossip gurus at Bloomberg (because where else would you get your spook-tacular scoops?), Netflix has just cracked open the crypt on the Uncle Fester spinoff idea. But, and here’s the kicker, nothing is etched in tombstone yet. The word on the ghostly grapevine is that the brilliant minds behind the scenes still need to weave a web of a story, strike deals with the talent (imagine negotiating with ghosts and ghouls!), and synchronize the schedules of these unearthly individuals. It’s like planning a family reunion in the afterlife – not as easy as it sounds!
But fear not, dear binge-watchers, for Netflix is reportedly chomping at the bit (or should we say, at the neck?) to ride the wave of success unleashed by Wednesday. Apparently, Wednesday crawled her way into the Top 5 most watched shows on Netflix in the first half of 2023, leaving viewers both terrified and delighted. Who knew a Wednesday could be so thrilling?
And if that’s not enough to tickle your funny bone, guess who else wants a piece of the eerie action? Amazon, the behemoth that devoured MGM Studios, the puppet master behind Wednesday. They’ve reportedly thrown their hat (or should we say, witch’s hat?) into the ring for this Uncle Fester extravaganza. It’s a streaming showdown of supernatural proportions!
So get ready for more Addams antics, more spooky shenanigans, and more Uncle Fester than you ever thought your haunted heart desired. Netflix is about to unleash a pandemonium of paranormal proportions, and we can’t wait to see what kind of kooky chaos Uncle Fester brings to our screens. Stay spooky, binge-watchers!
