Secret Invasion’s Second-Lowest Viewing Figures For Marvel Series Debut

The viewing figures for the opening episode of Secret Invasion on Disney Plus are the second-lowest for any Marvel series to date. After debuting on the platform last Wednesday (June 21), the opener pulled in a viewership of 994,000 across the U.S, according to a report from Samba TV on Twitter.

These figures account for the first five days after June 21, making it the second-lowest viewership for any Marvel series, topped only by Ms. Marvel, which premiered in June 2022. Starring Iman Vellani as the titular superheroine, the debut episode attracted 775,000. To put these figures into context, the opener for She-Hulk drew in 1.5 million, a notable increase.

Loki sits at 2.5 million, and Moon Knight pulled in 1.8 million. Secret Invasion stars Samuel Invasion, who reprises his long-standing role as Nick Fury, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, another mainstay since 2012’s Avengers: Assemble.

The series further stars Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, and Kingsley Ben-Adir as the series antagonist Gravik, a Skrull rebel leader. With the first two episodes of Secret Invasion available on Disney Plus, Secret Invasion debuts weekly on Wednesdays.

With their home planet destroyed, the surviving Skrulls hiding on Earth are searching for a new place to call home, and following the ‘five-year blip’ events in Avengers: Endgame, and Nick Fury’s absence, a renegade faction of Skrulls conspire to take the Earth for themselves.
