The Mandalorian continues to dominate the TV demand charts amidst the release of the show’s second season. The Disney+ series has never left the top 3 of the TV Demand chart in the last 12 months and the weekly release of new episodes has seen it surge ahead with a huge lead in both the Digital Originals and Overall TV charts in Australia and New Zealand.
