The Fallout TV Series Had 65 Million Viewers In Its First Two Weeks

Far out.

Prime Video’s Fallout series, which debuted earlier this month on April 11th, has reportedly garnered a staggering 65 million viewers in its first couple of weeks (well, sixteen days) on the streaming service. As reported by Variety, this puts it at second place behind The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power as the most-watched title on the Prime Video platform.

Going into finer detail, Fallout is Amazon’s most-watched show among adults ages 18-34, and 60% of its viewership game from outside of the US – with fans in the UK, France and Brazil especially enamoured with the series.

The series has proven to be a critical success with a massive 94% approval rating on review aggregate site, Rotten Tomatoes, and a second season has already been confirmed with production moving to California.

“Praise be to our insanely brilliant showrunners, Geneva and Graham, to our kick-ass cast, to Todd and James and all the legends at Bethesda, and to Jen, Vernon and the amazing team at Amazon for their incredible support of this show. We can’t wait to blow up the world all over again,” producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy said of the show’s renewal.

With Fallout 5 still a long ways off, the whole world has seemingly turned back to the earlier games as Fallout fever takes hold. Audiences in Australia and New Zealand have had the same idea with the most recent charts from the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) showing that not one but four separate Fallout titles cracked the top five amongst the Top 10 charts in the week after the show launched.

And, of course, the current-gen update for Fallout 4 has finally arrived for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, bringing with it new performance and visual modes on consoles, new Creation Club content packs and other tweaks and improvements.
