Even amid impressive streaming numbers, fans are eagerly awaiting confirmation about whether or not the series will get a second season — and it looks like one aspect of that possibility has been clarified. According to a recent report from IndieWire, a second season of Wednesday would not move from Netflix to Prime Video, despite rumors earlier in the week suggesting. as much following the landmark deal between Amazon and MGM.
