Controversial new series knocks Wednesday off Netflix's number one spot

Controversial new series knocks Wednesday off Netflix's number one spot

Wednesday has finally been knocked off the top spot.

A new series has finally knocked Tim Burton's Wednesday off the top spot on Netflix's charts - and the best is yet to come.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new docu-series Harry & Meghan dropped on Netflix last week and immediately shot to the top of the charts, as viewers tune in to find out more about what inspired the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to flee the Royal Family. You can check out trailer for the next instalment here:

Since it first arrived to the streaming service, Wednesday stormed the charts, with fans falling for Jenna Ortega's modern take on the classic character.

The TV show follows the only daughter of the Addams Family joining new school Nevermore Academy, and investigating a murder mystery plot in the meantime.

New seasons of shows like The Crown, Dead To Me, and Firefly Lane were wiped out by Wednesday, which sat comfortably at number one for the past two weeks.

That was until the Duke and Duchess of Sussex dropped the first three episodes of their controversial docu-series Harry & Meghan, which gives viewers a never before seen look into their lives.

Wednesday was at the top of the Netflix charts for the past two weeks..

The synopsis for the show reads: "In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.

“Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.

"With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family's relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple's love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other."

In the first three episodes, which were added to Netflix on 8 December, the couple opened up about how they first met and fell for one another, who Meghan was before she met the prince, and how they struggled to cope with the British media's treatment of them once their relationship was made public.

The couple revealed details about her early romance with Harry.

There are three more episodes due to hit Netflix on 15 December and, if the teaser trailer released today (12 December) is anything to go by, they'll be sure to keep Harry & Meghan at the top of the charts for at least the rest of the week.

In the trailer for the second volume, Harry and Meghan will get into their conflicts with the Royal Family, accusing them of 'actively recruiting people to spread misinformation' about them while Meghan was 'fed to the wolves'.

Harry tells cameras: "They were happy to lie to protect my brother, they were never willing to tell the truth to protect us."

It sounds like this series will have enough drama to keep them at the top of the charts for quite a while.

The second volume of Harry & Meghan drops on Netflix on 15 December.
