If you haven’t watched Netflix’s hit series Wednesday, we’re assuming you’ve been living under a rock this whole time. It took the Internet by storm when it was released last November 23 and has become one of the most iconic pop culture moments of 2022. But did you know you can watch Wednesday in Filipino dub?
Most of us watched Wednesday in its original language in English but you could also watch it in Tagalog. All you have to do is fire up the episode, click on the language setting, and choose the Filipino audio. You can even pair it with Filipino subs to match!

Pinoys are relieved to find that the Wednesday dub is “kinda fire,” not at all cringe like what we’ve been subjected to with the TV5 cartoon dubs all those years ago (sorry!). This one doesn’t come with the monotone delivery or the weird unnatural tone K-drama Filipino dubs could never seem to shed. It also helps that it had a well-written script in Taglish, a medium of communication the majority of Filipinos use every day.

“I love Enid’s dubbing. It’s very fitting and didn’t lose the cuteness/bubbly charm of Emma Myers,” said one netizen.
Wednesday in filipino dub is so on point tbh. They even incorporated taglish so it’s more modern and conversational instead of pure tagalog which would be a bit awkward for translation imo lol
Kudos to the Filipino Dubbers, I love it 😍

“Wednesday in Filipino dub is so on point tbh. They even incorporated Taglish so it’s more modern and conversational instead of pure Tagalog which would be a bit awkward for translation [in my opinion] LOL Kudos to the Filipino Dubbers, I love it,” said another.

If these reactions aren’t enough to persuade you to watch the series in Filipino dub, we don’t know what will!

According to Netflix’s credits, Hit Productions Inc was responsible for the Filipino version with Rudolf Baldonado Jr. as the Dubbing Director.
Alexandra Aguirre gave voice to Wednesday’s dead-pan character and Nina Torralba to Enid’s bubbly one. Other voice actors include Steve Dela Cruz for Xavier Thorpe, Carl Simon Dela Cruz for Tyler Galpin, Cheska Aguiluz for Bianca Barclay, Bianca Arambulo for Morticia Addams, and Christopher Carlo Caling for Gomez Addams.
Go ahead and rewatch the series in Filipino and show our local voice artists some love!
Netflix’s ‘Wednesday’ is undoubtedly one of the best series this year and the proof is in the numbers. It pulled 1 billion hours of watch time on the first 19 days of its release since November 23. It became the streaming giant’s third most-streamed show of all time, just a little behind Stranger Things 4. While there’s no news yet about Season 2, we’re 150% sure it’s coming and we’ll be ready when it does.
