• Netflix’s The Witcher moved into second spot in Australia 

Book of Boba Fett has claimed the top spot in the TV Demand charts almost a month after it was released on Disney+.

The space Western series is created by acclaimed actor and director Jon Favreau and stars Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison as former bounty hunter Boba Fett, alongside co-star Ming-Na Wen, as Fennec Shand an assassin under his service.

Over the last week, Book of Boba Fett came in at 29.65 points above market average in Australia and 23.04 points above market average in New Zealand.

Meanwhile Netflix’s The Witcher moved up in the rankings with a gain of 25.28 points above market average in Australia. 

This comes after the streaming giant renewed the popular series for a third season months ahead of the season two release back in December.

The Witcher creator, showrunner and executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also signed a big multi-year deal with Netflix last year, cementing her place with the streaming service.

“I am so thrilled to have found my home at Netflix, and can’t wait to continue what’s been an incredibly fulfilling creative partnership,” she said in a report by Deadline.

“While my heart belongs to The Witcher Franchise, I equally look forward to digging in on other exciting projects for their global audience in the years to come,” she added.

The second season of the fantasy drama, starring Henry Cavill, outperformed Karate Kid spin-off series Cobra Kai in Australia with 23.35 points.

In New Zealand it claimed the fifth spot with 13.14 points above market average.

Amazon Prime Video’s sci-fi series The Expanse slipped down to fourth spot with 21.49 points above market average, but remained strong in New Zealand at second place with 17.55 points.

Rounding out the top five is The Mandalorian starring Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin with 21.26 points above market average in Australia, while in New Zealand it comes in at sixth place with 12.3 points.
