The debut was so successful that the show dethroned Netflix’s crowning jewel Stranger Things, which had more than 335 million hours in its first week – even after developing its fanbase across four seasons.

Wednesday has also become number one in 93 countries, including Australia, and has led to the TikTok phenomenon of the #WednesdayDance.

The series focuses on the daughter in the Addams family, Wednesday – played by Jenna Ortega – and her time at the Nevermore Academy school.

While the entire show is a success, fans are obsessing over one particular scene.

Wednesday’s dance to The Cramp’s song Goo Goo Muck at the Nevermore prom has led to recreations and trends, with more than seven billion views on TikTok to date.

Fans are divided over the routine, with some calling it “cringeworthy” while others say it is exactly how Wednesday Addams would dance.

“Wednesday Addams’ dance scene was so cringe,” one said, with another tweet agreeing, “Wednesday Addams dance = cringe”.

“Wednesday’s little goth dance was sooooo cringe sorry I physically cannot watch the scene,” another said.

Others defended the routine.

“People making fun of Wednesday and calling her cringe in the dance scene did NOT understand what the Addams are all about because it was a pure masterpiece and Jenna did it wonderfully.”

“I can’t even find the words to express how amazing this is,” another said.

“Wednesday’s dance scene is honestly the best thing to exist. I’m obsessed,” a fan tweeted.

The show is also prompting praise for the acting ability of former Disney Channel star, Jenna Ortega.

Critics have said the 20-year-old actress makes the Addams Family’s now high-school-aged daughter “the coolest humourless goth sociopath you’ll ever meet”.

Ortega is said to play Wednesday as “relentlessly strange, a portrait in unblinking intensity and oddly endearing all at once”.

When Wednesday is enrolled in a new private school, Nevermore Academy, she tells the headmistress (played by Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie) about her frequent moves from school to school.

“They haven’t built one strong enough to hold me,” Wednesday says.
