It’s been revealed that The Mandalorian Season 2’s premiere episode performed spectacularly and was watched by over 6 million people in the US. This was revealed by Reelgood (via Forbes), and it seems as though the show’s second season is going to be a huge hit.
We already knew that The Mandalorian Season 2 was going to be huge, but it looks like it’s going to be even bigger than we thought it would be. Now, Forbes has revealed that Season 2’s premiere episode did almost as well in its opening weekend as Stranger Thing Season 3.
That’s pretty big given the fact that Stranger Things Season 3 aired on Netflix which has a much bigger subscriber base than Disney Plus. Forbes revealed that almost 6% of people were streaming The Mandalorian on October 30th to November 1st.
The Mandalorian Season 2’s premiere episode has been performing spectacularly
It really does seem as though people were really looking forward to this new season of The Mandalorian. Let’s be honest here, there’s not a lot of new stuff being released on the Disney streaming platform.
Here’s what Forbes’ article said: “The Mandalorian season two raked in more streams than season one, Reelgood says, thanks to the growth of Disney+, which is at more than 60 million subscribers. In my opinion, it’s also due to the fact that people really liked season one and were primed for season two.”
That’s huge for the show, and hopefully means that Disney will want to make more live-action Star Wars show like this one because they’re really popular. They’re already working on the Kenobi live-action series and the Cassian Andor show. They might be looking to make even more.
