Also, the first two episodes will air across three Disney-owned networks ABC, FX, and Freeform. Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, viewers can broadcast the “Andor” episodes on ABC. The episodes will air on FX on November 24 at 9 p.m. and Freeform on November 25 at 9 p.m.

The cross-platform push may indicate that Disney hopes to draw in a larger audience to the show. This strategy will likely work since many viewers are home for the holidays this week and will probably want to tune in to the well-reviewed series.

The move also comes on the same day that the first season finale of “Andor” is premiering on Disney+. The company is probably hoping that once viewers watch the first two episodes on Hulu, ABC, FX, or Freeform, they’ll want to hop over to Disney+ to finish the season.

It won’t surprise us if the reason for the lackluster viewership numbers is because fans are burned out from the endless stream of “Star Wars” content. Although it can be nostalgic to explore storylines for various “Star Wars” characters, it can also be overwhelming– at least in our opinion.

But Disney isn’t ready to throw in the towel. Other spin-offs in the works include “Ahsoka” and “Acolyte,” among other upcoming Disney+ projects.
