Viewing figures for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie in the US have been revealed, with the film being watched over 25 million households in its first week.
The Netflix-produced sequel to the original series, which arrived on the streaming platform on October 11, stars Aaron Paul as his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman and picks up the story immediately after the dramatic events of the show’s 2013 finale.
El Camino was expected to be a big hit for Netflix upon its release, and the streaming platform has now reported its own viewing figures — with a staggering 25,734,392 households watching the Breaking Bad sequel in the first seven days.
Nielsen’s SVOD Content Ratings — which measures streaming viewing figures in the US — last week gave an indication of how popular the film was on its opening weekend.
El Camino achieved an average audience of 6.54 million viewers over the first three days of its release, with around 40% of that audience (just under 2.65 million people) watching the film on day one. Nielsen also says that 8.2 million people in the US watched at least a few minutes of the film.
