Amazon's post-apocalyptic series Fallout has achieved a remarkable milestone, setting a new record on Prime Video with a staggering 2.9 billion minutes viewed from April 8-14. The video game adaptation surpassed the previous record held by Reacher by over a billion minutes, solidifying its position as a top-performing series on the platform.

According to Nielsen's U.S. ranking ofstreaming originals, Fallout's second season premiere landed as the 39th highest viewership by a title on any service in a single week. The series reached an impressive 65 million worldwideviewersin its first 16 days of availability, coming in second only to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Fallout's global popularity is evident, with 60% of its viewership originating from outside the United States. The series proved to be a hit among the 18-34 demographic, becoming the most-watched title within 16 days of release for that age group. Major international markets, including the UK, France, and Brazil, significantly contributed to its success.

The show's record-breaking performance prompted Amazon to swiftly renew Fallout for a second season just a week after its launch. Produced by Kilter Films, with executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy at the helm, the series is based on the beloved video game franchise from Bethesda Game Studios.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Fallout follows the inhabitants of a luxury fallout shelter as they return to the irradiated surface, discovering a complex and violent universe. The series boasts a talented cast, including Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, and Aaron Moten.

Fallout's success has led to a surge of interest in the post-apocalyptic franchise, with every Fallout game experiencing a boost in popularity following the show's debut. "I'd even guess that there are talks at Amazon about at least one spin-off in the future based on these huge numbers," speculated an industry analyst. "In other words: If you liked the Fallout TV show, I'd wager a stack of caps that there is a lot more coming in the future."

As Fallout continues to captivate audiences worldwide, itsrecord-breaking viewership numbersserve as a testament to the enduring appeal of the franchise and the quality of the adaptation. With a second season on the horizon and potential spin-offs in discussion, fans of the series have much to look forward to in the ever-expanding Fallout universe.
