“Obi-Wan Kenobi” Finale Viewership Up 20% On “The Book Of Boba Fett”
Last week, the finale of “Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi” was released on Disney+ and according to some new data from Sambta TV, the finale was watched by 1.8 million US households over the five day period (Wednesday through Sunday), for at least five minutes.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
When the first two episodes were released on Disney+ on the memorial day weekend, the show pulled in 2.14 million US households. Which was slightly higher than the viewership numbers for the premiere than the second season of “The Mandalorian”, which was watched by 2.08 million US households.
The viewership for the finale of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” is 20% more than the finale of the last Disney+ Star Wars series, “The Book Of Boba Fett”, which pulled in 1.5 million US households.
It’s usual for a show to dip how many people are watching a series between the premiere and the finale, as naturally, some viewers will either stop watching. The data also revevaled that more people in Seattle watched the show, followed by Denver and Sacramento.
The entire series of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” is available to stream on Disney+ now.
