Disney has announced that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was Disney+’s most-watched series premiere to date.
This means that more people tuned into the Anthony Mackie/Sebastian Stan-led series’ March 19th premiere than they did for the debuts of sister Marvel show WandaVision or either season of The Mandalorian.
Like most other streaming services, Disney doesn’t reveal specific viewership data, so it’s unclear exactly how many people watched The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Nonetheless, the series — which was originally slated to launch in August 2020 pre-COVID-19 — is proving to be quite popular already, even with five episodes left to go. It doesn’t stop there, though; Disney+ still has several other Marvel series this year in the form of Loki (June), What If? (summer) and Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye (TBA 2021).
Earlier this month, Disney confirmed that Disney+ topped 100 million paying subscribers worldwide.
