Based on fresh viewership statistics presented by analytics firm Samba TV, the premiere episode of Ahsoka, released on Disney+ on August 22, garnered an audience in 1.2 million American households within the Live+5 Day viewing period. The second episode, also released on the same night, was initiated by 956,000 households.
According to a report from Deadline, the viewership data for Episode 1 of Ahsoka is comparable to the series debut of Andor, both having been watched in 1.2 million households during the Live+5 measurement, following Andor‘s launch in September 2022. However, Ahsoka’s viewership falls notably behind the numbers achieved by The Mandalorian, which secured an audience of 1.7 million households during its Season 3 premiere in March, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, which attracted 2.4 million households during its series premiere in May 2022.
Taking place after the Empire’s downfall, Ahsoka features Rosario Dawson in the role of the live-action portrayal of former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano. She delves into probing a burgeoning menace that poses a risk to a fragile galaxy. Ahsoka‘s cast also includes Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ray Stevenson, Ivanna Sakhno, Diana Lee Inosanto, David Tennant, Lars Mikkelsen, and Eman Esfandi.
Episode 3 drops on 29 August.
