The TV show may have been hit and miss over the course of its broadcast, but the second season of Star Wars: Rebels has ended on a high note. The hour-long season two finale of Rebels soared to success in the ratings.
The Season Two finale reached an all time high in viewership numbers, for 2016. Variety have backed this assessment with some compelling statistics. These statistics definitely make for good reading, from the perspective of the behind-the-scenes team at Disney and LucasFilm.
Total Viewership Numbers:
-> 1.2 million viewers (an all time high for the show in more than a year)
On Digital Platforms
-> 3.2 million viewers on the Disney XD App
-> Over 8.8 million VOD orders over the course of the season
-> Ranked as No. 1 cable TV telecast in the hour among the age demographic of boys 6-14.
-> A solid No. 2 in kids 6-11 across the target demographic.
Whilst the episode was disjointed in nature, epitomising the season on a more general level, the season two finale was breath-taking and a compelling watch. Its is without doubt that the promoted return of characters like Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Ahsoka made the hour-long finale a must-see for regular Rebels' viewers.
