Fallout is coming to Amazon next year, this time as a television series from the creators of Westworld.
Prime Video celebrated the 26th anniversary of Fallout Day, a date in the game marking the beginning of the Great War, the catalyst that turned the planet into a nuclear wasteland, by launching the series’ official social channels. It also posted an interactive Pip-Boy interface graphic on Instagram embedded with the show’s release date: April 12, 2024.
Little is known about the series so far. Prime Video said the series will be available in 240 countries and territories but did not comment on the number of episodes or release additional information. The social channels are active now, so fans can connect before the release date and await the official trailer.
Video games turned TV series are doing well with audiences. The Last of Us on Max gained record-breaking views with its infectious host of characters, while on the big screen, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is the second highest-grossing film of the year. Considering Fallout’s extensive fan base, the series looks primed to follow in their footsteps and bring more first-time viewers to the platform.
The original series is a canonical continuation of Fallout, set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Cast includes Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight), Aaron Moten (Emancipation), Moisés Arias (The King of Staten Island), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Michael Emerson (Person of Interest), Leslie Uggams (Deadpool), Frances Turner (The Boys), Dave Register (Heightened), Zach Cherry (Severance), Johnny Pemberton (Ant-Man), Rodrigo Luzzi (Dead Ringers), Annabel O’Hagan (Law & Order: SVU), and Xelia Mendes-Jones (The Wheel of Time).
Amazon and Kilter Films produce Fallout in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks. Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight, Westworld) directs the first three episodes and serves as executive producer along with Lisa Joy, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and Graham Wagner.
