OBI-WAN KENOBI's Finale Topped THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT For Most-Viewed Of Any STAR WARS Final Episode

It's been a little over a week since Obi-Wan Kenobi's finale arrived on Disney+, but viewing figures reveal that it topped The Book of Boba Fett as the most viewed final episode of any Star Wars series.

Deadline (via SFFGazette.com) reports that the Obi-Wan Kenobi finale drew a five-day (Wednesday to Sunday) audience of 1.8 million U.S. households, a 20% rise from The Book of Boba Fett's 1.5 million U.S. households earlier this year. This data comes from Samba TV, so is only based on 3 million U.S. households and is not representative of the full viewing figures. 

However, the numbers still make for interesting reading and give Obi-Wan Kenobi the honour of having the most-viewed finale of any Star Wars TV series on Disney+. 

The show's first two episodes dropped on the Friday of the four-day Memorial Day weekend last month, and brought in a total 2.14 million viewers during that period. It's typical to see a dip between a premiere and finale, but Obi-Wan Kenobi did a solid job of maintaining its audience and remains the most-viewed original series on the streaming service.

The finale also faced very strong competition last Wednesday as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness made its streaming debut. The Marvel Studios sequel drew 2.1 million viewers over five days, matching Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, but beating Eternals' 2 million viewers. 

"Obi-Wan Kenobi is a showcase for the immense talents of Ewan McGregor and Vivien Lyra Blair, and after just two episodes, it's already on a par with The Mandalorian as the best Star Wars TV series yet," we said in our review of the show's premiere last month. 

The response from fans to all six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi has been extremely positive, and despite some nitpicks, it's clearly a hit. There's still no official word on a season 2, but you don't have to look far online to find rumblings that Lucasfilm already has plans to tell more Ben Kenobi stories.
