But Disney + subscribers aren’t the only ones who wanted to follow the adventures of the Mandalorian bounty hunter this year. We want as proof of this the 2020 ranking of the most pirated TV series in 2020 broadcast by the TorrentFreak site. A ranking where The Mandalorian is in first place. The Star Wars series therefore replaces Game of Thrones which has monopolized the pole position in recent years.
The Mandalorian stronger than The Boys among pirates
This popularity score of The Mandalorian is all the more interesting given that the series was in third place only a year ago. The buzz of the first season, added to that of the second, the last episode of which aired a few days ago, had a huge effect on illegal downloads.
In this ranking, The Mandalorian is ahead of The Boys, whose second season on Prime Video achieved a better “legal start”, with 7.2% market share. The Boys takes second place and achieves the best entry in the TorrentFreak leaderboard. Westworld takes third place. The third season of the HBO Max series aired earlier this year.
The other series of the classification are, in order, Vikings (Netflix), Star Trek: Picard (Prime Video), Rick and morty (Netflix), The Walking Dead (Netflix), The Outsider (Prime Video), Arrow (Netflix) and The Flash (Netflix). On the film side, it’s Mulan, still on Disney +, who generates the most illegal downloads.
