Amazon Prime Video tweeted that a Fallout original series is coming to Prime Video in 2024. The post also referenced Vault 33, located in Los Angeles, which, that will be featured in the upcoming show, according to the video game’s fandom wiki.
Amazon and Kilter Studios have been teasing the series since 2020 when Amazon Studios licensed the rights to the Fallout game franchise, naming producers Johnathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of HBO’s Westworld, as showrunners. In light of The Last of Us’ wildly successful first season, the streaming landscape is primed for another video game adaptation — especially one as iconic as Fallout.
“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” Todd Howard, Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios said when plans for the show were first announced. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”
Fallout is a series of post-apocalyptic action role-playing games set a future ravaged by nuclear war. The games juxtapose an unforgiving wasteland and an older generation’s utopian dreams around the possibilities of nuclear energy. Since its original release in 1997, the six titles in the video game series have sold almost 50 million copies.
