Disney+ saw some significant growth from the season one finale of The Book of Boba Fett with the season-ender actually coming out ahead of the season two finale of The Mandalorian.

Per Samba TV (via Deadline), the season one finale of The Book of Boba Fett drew 1.5 million U.S. households from the show’s Wednesday to Sunday run. That’s 36% higher than the five-day finale draw of The Mandalorian’s season two ender which streamed from December 18-22, 2020, and reached 1.1 million U.S. households.

There is an argument being made that the viewership increase has to do with the fact that Disney+ has seen an increase in subscribers. Subscriber numbers are up 11.8 million to 129.8 million worldwide at the end of their recent Q1. Another interesting tidbit is that The Book of Boba Fett also followed a Disney+ trend that sees a bit of a decrease from its premiere figure to the numbers drawn by its finale. The Book of Boba Fett’s finale was down 12% from the 1.7 million U.S. households that watched the premiere in its first five days on December 29-January 2. Declines like this also occurred with WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye.

Per the official synopsis from Disney+, “The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.” The series stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen while Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson, serve as executive producers.
