Fallout TV Show Received Over 5 Million Views in its First Week

The Fallout TV show is officially a huge success for Amazon, amassing over 5 million views in its first week alone, covering the period of 12-18 April following its premiere on 10 April. The adaptation from Westworld‘s Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy managed to earn critical acclaim as well, widely considered one of the best video game adaptations ever made.

As reported by Variety, the Fallout TV show gathered over 5 million views in its first week, recording more than 2.5 billion minutes of collective watch time for all viewers who tuned into the series on release. It’s worth noting that this only takes into account subscribed Prime Video views, as the viewership number could be much higher due to people watching the series through other means (or the few regions that don’t have access to the subscription service yet).

The Fallout TV show tells a new, canon story set within the universe and established lore of the video game franchise it’s based on. It follows three survivors during a post-apocalyptic nuclear fallout, set a few years after the events of Fallout 4.

Thanks to the popularity of the series, several games in the franchise saw a huge boost in player numbers this month. Bethesda Game Studios is dropping the long-awaited free PS5 and Xbox Series X/S next-gen update for Fallout 4 that improves the visuals, frame rate and more to bring it up to scratch on modern hardware. Players can jump into the next-gen update as soon as today.

Fallout 4 seemed to be the most popular Fallout game that players flocked to after the show’s release, as it topped the European sales charts with a whopping 7500% increase in sales.

If you’re itching to play any other game in the franchise, we also highly recommend checking out Fallout: New Vegas. Considering how season 1 of the TV show ended, it makes sense that New Vegas would be a good place to start for curious newcomers.

Fallout is now streaming on Prime Video. After you’re done, make sure you check out all our predictions and theories for season 2.
