VIDEO: Netflix's new comedy-horror series, Wednesday

When the show went to number one on Netflix in several countries worldwide, she shared a photograph of herself rejoicing in a setting that quite fits the series.

In fact, it looked to be from the show's sets itself, as she was surrounded by statues of armored knights, ornate doorways and arches, and a big hunting trophy.
