Amazon Prime Video shared the first look at Fallout, the upcoming TV series based on the popular video game franchise of the same name, and fans are loving it.

Hollywood is all aboard the video game adaptation train for both TV and films. Universal Studios’ Super Mario Bros. Movie, HBO’s The Last of Us, and Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog are just the tip of the iceberg. Amazon is following up with its own adaptation of Fallout for its Prime Video service, a project that has been in the works since 2020.

While fans of the Fallout games are in an awkward limbo with the game falling behind The Elder Scrolls 6 on Bethesda Game Studio’s to-do list, they seemingly have something to look forward to here. Fans got a look at the show’s monstrously large and highly faithful power armor.

When does the Fallout TV series come out?

Fallout the TV series is scheduled to premiere on April 12, 2024.

The show is being created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan through their production company, Kilter Films. Joy and Nolan are known for their work as writers and executive producers in shows like Westworld and The Peripheral. The show stars Invincible’s Walton Goggins as The Ghoul and Yellowjacket’s Ella Purnell as Lucy.

Lucy is a naive young woman living inside a subterranean vault who is forced to venture into the outside world. On the surface, Lucy discovers a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Lucy encounters nightmarish abominations and a surviving population that is struggling to get by.

“Lucy is charming and plucky and strong…and then you see she’s confronted with the reality of, hey, maybe the supposedly virtuous things you grew up with are not necessarily that virtuous. If they are virtuous, they’re couched in a circumstantial virtuousness,” Nolan said in an interview with Vanity Fair.

According to Todd Howard, director of Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76, everything happening in the TV series is part of the official Fallout canon. Howard is one of the series’ executive producers and a direct link between Kilter Films and Bethesda Game Studios, developers of the franchise. The series takes place in the year 2296, nine years after the events of Fallout 4.

The series also maintains the 1950s aesthetic that was a staple of the games. According to Howard, the team had several conversations about the level of violence in the series and how to keep the same dark sense of humor from the game.

Given the look of the show and Howard’s involvement, the Fallout series certainly seems to be maintaining the look and feel of the games. The Fallout TV series is coming exclusively to Prime Video this spring.
