Fallout Season 1 Had More Than 65 Million Viewers, Amazon Says

Fallout Season 1 may be among the most-watched series ever on Amazon Prime Video, according to Amazon itself.


Amazon Prime Video confirmed Fallout Season 2 just over a week after the premiere of Season 1, which suggests that the original series based on the video game franchise is a massive hit. Now, Amazon has revealed that 65 million viewers have watched the show in the 16-day window since the series debuted on April 10.

Via Variety, Fallout is the second most-watched title on Prime Video since The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 1 in 2022. Variety also notes that 60% of the show's viewers came from outside of the United States, with the United Kingdom, France, and Brazil mentioned as "hubs for the show’s popularity."

However, Amazon has not released its methodology for counting Fallout's viewers. For example, Amazon doesn't mention how many viewers finished watching the show's first season or even a complete episode. Regardless, the popularity of Fallout on Prime Video does appear to be fueling interest in the video games themselves. The aftermarket prices for Fallout 4 on PS4 have risen dramatically on Amazon Prime itself.

Despite the lightning-fast renewal, Amazon hasn't announced a timeframe for Fallout Season 2 to premiere. It's also unknown if the second season will begin production before the end of 2024.
