Now, without further ado, let’s break down the newly-released date from the week of August 21. Per TVLine, the first two episodes clocked a total of 829 million minutes viewed. That was enough for the show to debut on #2 on Nielsen’s streaming charts, behind only Who is Erin Carter? for Netflix. This actually puts the show ahead a good bit of the first week from Andor season 1, or even the premiere of The Mandalorian season 3. It is behind the debut of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but we don’t think that is some huge shock given that you had characters within that show that have been around for generations.
The important thing for Ahsoka is that it has managed to perfectly bring over fans from the animated series, while also working to recruit some new viewers at the same time. We know that these Disney+ shows set within the Star Wars universe are not cheap, and that is always the inherent risk that comes with putting them on the air.
Even before these numbers came out, we should note that there was already at least some chatter about a season 2 renewal happening, but it has not been confirmed. Our hope, at least for now, is that we learn more about it before the end of the year.
For the time being, just remember that there are two more episodes to go for season 1, including an installment next week. There’s a lot to be excited about…
