Own The Extraordinary First Season of the Hit Comedy Series

on DVD & Blu-ray March 26, 2024




Fans of Tim Burton's "Wednesday" series on Netflix will be happy to learn that you can now own it on DVD and Blu-ray, and watch your favorite episodes of Season 1, as we all wait for Season 2 to drop in 2025.  Jenna Ortega stepped into the shoes of Wednesday's character, and knocked it out of the park. She became a household name overnight, and her dance is still being recreated by kids and adults alike.  My youngest daughter dressed as Wednesday last Halloween, and has posters up in her room of Wednesday.  She had us binging the first season, like so many other families, in two days time.  We couldn't get enough of the series, and went back and watched it a few more times soon after its release.  And, now, my daughter is excited to watch Wednesday in the car and on the go this upcoming summer, reliving some of her favorite episodes and scenes from this hit series, that took Netflix by storm and introduced a new generation to the Addams Family.  If you and your family loved this series, and want to start a DVD or Blu-Ray collection, now is the time to pick up season 1, which is available today.  Then, get ready for what my family hopes is a long running series.  We just have to wait until 2025 for the next season, ugh!. But, at lease we can watch season 1 over and over again. streaming or with this new DVD and Blu-ray offering.
