The Book of Boba Fett had its epic conclusion last week and it appears to have broken some records for Disney+/Lucasfilm. The series finale drew in 1.5 million U.S. households according to Samba TV from the show’s Wednesday to Sunday run.
The number is 36% higher than the 5-day finale draw of The Mandalorian‘s season 2, which streamed from December 18-22, 2020, and pulled in 1.1 million U.S. households per Samba TV metrics. The higher numbers for The Book of Boba Fett could be in part to Disney+’s increase in subscribers, which as of last week were at 129.8 million, as announced by Disney during their Q1 earnings call.
Still, despite the strong numbers, since the launch of Disney+, the biggest season finale viewership to date for a series belongs to Marvel Studios’ Loki season one which drew 1.9 million U.S. households (July 14-18, 2021) through its first five days. Loki also touted the biggest Disney+ season premiere with 2.5 million over five days (June 9-13).
