It’s gonna get a little weird, gonna get a little wild on Disney XD come March 30th. That’s when Star vs. the Forces of Evil returns with brand new episodes on Disney XD according to Nick and More and a Disney press release. However, if you do not wish to wait for March 30th, a pair of new episodes will be made available to verified users of WatchDisneyXD.com, the Disney XD app, and Disney XD on Demand on February 23rd.
Star will then join the Disney XD lineup at 8pm ET/7pm CT with a replay of the opening episodes (“Star Comes to Earth”/“Party with a Pony”) followed by a brand new pair of episodes. The show will apparently follow a 2 x 11 format meaning a pair of 11-minute episodes per show.
Star’s debut on Disney Channel on January 18th drew an estimated 2.325 million viewers. It did receive strong lead-ins from the two shows preceding it on that Sunday night: Austin and Ally (3.076M) and K.C. Undercover (3.509M).
Star Wars: Rebels has been ranging 500K-700K viewers on Disney XD over the last nine episodes. Gravity Falls has been ranging roughly 800K-1.1M per episode. Somewhere in between could be deemed very good numbers for Star when it comes to Disney XD starting on March 30th. We’ll see what the numbers are then.
