10 Shows To Watch If You Can’t Get Enough Of 'Wednesday'

From 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' to 'American Horror Story', these shows will keep you entertained while waiting for ‘Wednesday’ season Two.

341 million hours of watching were clocked up in the opening week of the Tim Burton horror comedy Wednesday. It’s one of Netflix’s biggest releases of all time beating Stranger Things 4’s record for most hours watched for an English-language series in one week.

Viewers were captivated by this spooky Tim Burton delight, so much so that the show has started to take over other media outlets like TikTok with different dances and sounds starting to trend on the app.

If you’re like us and you’ve just finished watching Wednesday and you’ve been staring at a wall wondering what to watch next, here are ten shows that will satisfy your spooky needs while waiting for season two.

1. American Horror Story

Where can I watch it? Binge

If it was the unsettling premise and mild horror themes that you enjoyed in Wednesday, then you’re in luck because American Horror Story has all of that but amplified for 10 whole seasons. With each season being completely different than the last, American Horror Story is guaranteed to keep you entertained and slightly terrified. The cast remains relatively the same throughout, however plots, characters and storylines are all completely different, making for a horrifically versatile series.

2. You

It’s highly unlikely that you haven’t seen You, unless of course you prefer not to be completely creeped out by a television show. There’s three seasons to this twisted psychological thriller starring Penn Badgely and Victoria Pedretti. Apart from it being in the same dark vein as Wednesday, we recommend watching this if you're in need of a Jenna Ortega fix. Yep, that’s right! The leading lady from Wednesday stars in this gripping show too.

3. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

If you were a fan of Wednesday we can guarantee you’ll be a fan of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Why? Well, it essentially follows the same storyline – just with different characters and in a different setting. Originally released in October, 2012, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was sadly cancelled at episode 10 due to the pandemic. We highly recommend giving this supernatural thriller a go if you were a fan of Wednesday.

4. The Umbrella Academy

Young mischievous adults with supernatural powers, like the sound of that? We thought you would. The Umbrella Academy follows the lives of estranged siblings who all have unique powers which they use to uncover shocking family secrets and looming threats to humanity. There’s three seasons to this binge-worthy show, so you won’t be heartbroken with having to replace it with something else after the first 10 episodes.

5. Buffy

Where can I watch it? Disney+

An oldie but a goodie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was released in 1997 and has seven seasons to keep you busy while waiting for season two of Wednesday. The show follows the protagonist (Buffy – played by Sarah Michelle Geller), who is a Slayer from a long line of young women chosen for a specific mission: to seek out and destroy vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness. This show instantly evokes feelings of nostalgia and is definitely worth a watch if you were a fan of the supernatural elements in Wednesday.

6. A Series of Unfortunate Events

Based on the best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the tragic tale of three orphans: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire as they investigate their parents’ mysterious death. The siblings must outsmart their evil guardian Count Olaf (played by Neil Patrick Harris), who is desperately trying to get his hands on their inheritance. This morbidly entertaining show has three seasons for you to watch the sibling’s devious plans unfold.

7. Pretty Little Liars

What started as a series of teen mystery novels by author Sara Shepard has become one of the most popular American Mystery Teen Dramas to hit television screens. Follow the lives of four girls after one of their friends mysteriously vanishes. The girls believe their secrets are safe forever, until they begin to receive chilling messages from an anonymous person that goes by the name of ‘A’. They must navigate their everyday lives while trying to keep their secrets from being revealed.

8. Yellowjackets

Yellowjackets tells the narrative of a team of New Jersey high school soccer players who are travelling to Seattle for a national tournament in 1996. While flying over Canada, their plane crashes deep in the wilderness and the team members who survived the crash are left for nineteen months. The show bounces back and forth between their current lives in 2021 and the horrific events that occurred for them back in 1996.

9. The End of the F***ing World

Where can I watch it? Netflix

Not your average teen drama show, The End of the F***ing World follows main character James, who believes he is a psychopath, and Alyssa, a school-friend of James’ who is looking for an escape from her tumultuous reality. The show features superb acting, a well-written script, and talented actors with perfect comic timing. If you’re in the mood for morbid fun, definitely press play on this one.

10. Addams Family

Where can I watch it? Stan

We know it’s not a TV show but we just had to include the supernatural black comedy film The Addams Family to this list! The film focuses on the bizarre, macabre, aristocratic family who reconnect with what they believe to be a long-lost relative, Gomez's brother Fester Addams. The actor playing Wednesday might look familiar to you in this film… that’s because it's Christina Ricci, who plays Marilyn Thornhill: Wednesday’s teacher in Wednesday.
