Creepy and kooky wins the day.

Wednesday–the spinoff series of the ’60s classic The Addams Family–has taken Netflix by storm, setting a new viewing record for the streamer, according to a report on Deadline.

The show that spotlights the Addams daughter drew more than 341 million hours viewed in its first week, making it the most-viewed English-speaking series on Netflix. The previous record-holder? The fourth season of Stranger Things, which posted 335 million hours viewed at its peak.

Wednesday–from executive producer/director Tim Burton and showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar–stars Jenna Ortega in the title role.

In the show, Wednesday enters Nevermore Academy, and “attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago,” according to the synopsis.

Joining Ortega in the cast are Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzman as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley, Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, George Burcea as Lurch, Victor Dorobantu as the handy Thing and Christina Ricci (who played Wednesday on the big screen) as Marilyn Thornhill.
