The Tim Burton-directed and produced series, which stars Jenna Ortega, Gwendoline Christie, Luis Guzmán and Catherine Zeta-Jones, follows the Addams family’s 16-year-old sardonic and uncompromising goth daughter who gets enrolled in a new boarding school, Nevermore Academy, where she finds herself surrounded with mysterious spirits and supernatural creatures. Even though a new season is reportedly in the works, Netflix has not made any official announcement yet.

For the weekly Top 10 list, 1899 remains at second on the English-language TV series list with 87.89 million hours of viewership after the first week, while Season 5 of The Crown slipped to the number 3 spot, ending its two-week run at the top of the chart with 42.36 million hours viewership.
