‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Finale Viewership 20% Higher Than ‘Book Of Boba Fett’

The season one finale of the Disney+ Original series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” released on Disney+ on June 22, 2022.  The finale episode managed to draw in 1.8M  U.S. households in the first five days of its release on the streaming service. That number is 20% higher than the Wednesday through Sunday five-day viewership for The Book of Boba Fett finale, which pulled in 1.5M U.S. households.  The Mandalorian‘s season 2 finale which streamed from Dec. 18-22, 2020 pulled in 1.1M U.S. households.

The data comes from Samba TV.  Samba TV only measures viewership (of at least 5 minutes) in SmartTV terrestrial TVs with a panel size of 3 million U.S. households. Even though the numbers don’t tell the entire story of a show’s total number of viewers, including mobile and online, Samba TV is one of the few metrics firms out there monitoring streaming viewership.

All six episodes of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” are streaming now on Disney+.

The story 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.

The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold.
