Another report indicating that The Book of Boba Fett was a pretty big hit for Disney Plus has arrived, and it explains that the series managed to consistently grow its audience from episode to episode.
The week of the seventh and final episode of the first season of The Book of Boba Fett aired, the show was watched a most impressive 885 million minutes in the week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Note that the season finale aired on February 9, the middle of the week – which makes the overall numbers more impressive in the grand scheme of things, given that a large portion of the weekly viewership is dedicated to the most recent episode. The show, which has consistently dominated online discussion even after its first season finished, was also the only Disney Plus offering to make the weekly Top Ten.
In terms of overall viewership for original streaming series, The Book of Boba Fett came fifth in that week, behind the likes of Amazon’s Reacher (1.59 billion minutes viewed) and Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias (1.56 billion minutes viewed), Ozark (1.22 billion minutes viewed), and Inventing Anna (1.22 billion minutes viewed). The Boba Fett spin-off also came ahead of five other Netflix originals in the Top Ten: Raising Dion (757 million minutes viewed), Love Is Blind (478 million minutes viewed), All of Us Are Dead (454 million minutes viewed), Disenchantment (397 million minutes viewed), and The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window (366 million minutes viewed). In addition, the Star Wars show’s weekly viewership topped the viewership of all acquired streaming content from Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus.
All episodes of the first season of The Book of Boba Fett are available to stream right now on Disney Plus. It has not yet been confirmed if the show will have a second season, but strong viewership data makes it appear that another round of the original Mandalorian’s exploits could feasibly be on the horizon.
