The Mandalorian is #1 again in Australia and New Zealand which has continued a trend that dates back to November last year when the show was launched as a flagship piece of content for the new Disney+ platform.
The show is now preparing to launch its second season on October 30 which should see the show continue to dominate the charts for some time.
The new season picks up from the end of the first with The Mandalorian (Din Djarin) departing to find a home for The Child (Baby Yoda). Din is searching for the Jedi, hoping The Child can find a home with them, despite the Jedis and Mandalorians history as ancient enemies. It has also been reported that Rosario Dawson will play a live-action Ahsoka Tano, and see the return of Boba Fett played by Temuera Morrison.
The show’s first season was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards and won seven Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Work has already begun on The Mandalorian‘s third season.
While The Mandalorian has regained top spot in Australia, The Boys has stayed #1 on the Digital Original and Overall TV charts in NZ.
Netflix continues to dominate the Digital Original charts, especially in Australia with seven top 10 shows, while in New Zealand the digital platform has four shows on the chart.
