Streaming Report ‘The Boys’ Season 2 Premiere Was More Popular Than ‘The Mandalorian’


Let the streaming war commence!

The Boys and The Mandalorian both premiered new seasons this year, and it turns out that The Boys season 2 episode 1 was watched by more people on its opening weekend than The Mandalorian season 2 episode 1 (again on its opening weekend).

Amazon Prime Video’s irreverent superhero comedy was back with a bang this September, on a weekly release schedule rather than the entire season dropping at once (as season 1 did). It got 7.2% of the streaming share on its opening weekend, according to Reelgood.

Meanwhile, The Mandalorian season 2 started on October 30th with a Western-infused episode called “The Marshal”, co-starring Timothy Olyphant. Over its first weekend, it netted 5.7% of the streaming share.

Which would seem to mean The Boys season 2 had a stronger start than The Mandalorian.
