The highly anticipated Fallout television series on Amazon Prime has made a strong initial impact, according to a new report from JustWatch. The report analyses the show’s performance in its first week, comparing it to other successful video game adaptations such as HBO Max’s The Last of Us and Paramount’s Halo.

Key findings from the report:

  • Strong Start: All three adaptations – Fallout, The Last of Us, and Halo – boast IMDb scores above 7, indicating positive reception.
  • Global Dominance: Despite The Last of Us runaway first-week success, Fallout managed to hold the top spot in global viewership during its own debut week.
  • Critical Edge: While Fallout outperforms in viewership, The Last of Us maintains a slightly higher IMDb rating.

The JustWatch report draws its data from over 40 million users, tracking actions like streaming clicks, watchlist additions, and marking titles as “seen”. This data offers valuable insight into audience engagement across various streaming platforms.
