‘The Mandalorian’ Rises to Top-Viewed Original of the Week Ahead of Season 2

It looks like Star Wars fans are gearing up for when season 2 of The Mandalorian drops on Disney+ this Friday. The first season of the live-action series is back at the top spot of Parrot Analytics list of digital originals for the week ending October 24. The show was 63.7 times more in-demand than the average series.

New episodes of season 2 will be released weekly on Disney+ with the first premiering Friday October 30, just before Halloween. It’s highly likely The Mandalorian will remain in the top spot for original series for some time after the premiere.

The Mandalorian‘s uptick in views last week bumped Prime Video’s original The Boys out of the top spot, which it’s held for the last couple weeks. The irreverent, superpower series tumbled to No. 3 this week as anticipation for the next installment of the Star Wars series spinoff returned.

Currently in the No. 2 spot is Netflix’s ever-popular Stranger Things with demand expressions up 7.5%, making it 58 times more in demand than the average show.

Here are the top 5 originals from last week, according to Parrot Analytics

  1. The Mandalorian (Disney+)
  2. Stranger Things (Netflix)
  3. The Boys (Amazon Prime Video)
  4. Cobra Kai (Netflix)
  5. Star Trek: Discovery (CBS All Access)
