Andor surpassing House of the Dragon is not too much surprising as the Star Wars series just ended last week with 12 episodes in the first season. On the other hand, House of the Dragon had 10 episodes and ended weeks before Andor. Yet, finally, now that the Game of Thrones prequel’s heat has been cooled down, Star Wars: Andor has taken over as the most in-demand new series according to Parrot Analytics’ data.

Parrot Analytics is the market leader in measuring worldwide viewer demand. The organisation tracks worldwide entertainment market forces, recording over 2 billion people indicating the high demand for media and performers in over 100 languages, throughout all platforms, in 200+ nations.

Let’s look at the statistics to learn how much has Andor overperformed House of the Dragon.

“Andor” from Disney+ has finally surpassed HBO’s “House of the Dragon” to win the top place in the weekly list of new programs. As per Parrot Insights, traffic for the “Star Wars” spinoff increased by 7% this week to 37.7 times the typical demand, taking into consideration marketing research, watching live, downloads, and social networking interaction, among other factors. With the season’s 12th and final episode premiering on November 23, the programme has the capacity to go even higher.

The notion that every new “Star Wars” trilogy draws a smaller viewership raises concerns about brand weariness and declining revenues. While “Andor” is now in great demand, it nevertheless trails below past live-action “Star Wars” series in terms of popularity. “The Mandalorian’s” popularity skyrocketed in both its first and second seasons. During its first season, “The Book of Boba Fett” had consistently larger demand than “Andor.”


Andor Season 2 Is Already Under Production
