Today Amazon Prime Video officially announced the premiere date of the TV series dedicated to the popular post-apocalyptic Fallout franchise.
The series will debut exclusively on Amazon's streaming series on April 12, 2024.
The series is set in the future Los Angeles after the apocalypse and in the wider world of the Fallout series. It focuses on an original story that will become part of the canon of the games.
It's produced by Kilter Films, with executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, known as the creators of Westworld.
The cast includes quite a few known names. Here's a list straight from the press release:
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).
Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner also worked on the series as executive producers, writers, and co-showrunners. The list of executive producers also includes Athena Wickham of Kilter Films, Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios, and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.
Yes. That's a whole lot of executive producers.
Incidentally, I saw a brief teaser of the series during a Bethesda presentation at Gamescom in August, and it looked definitely interesting.
If you're unfamiliar with the Fallout series, it's a long-running franchise of post-apocalyptic games depicting America following a devastating nuclear war.
It was originally created by Interplay in 1997, while the rights were passed on to Bethesda with Fallout 3 in 2008.
The latest mainline RPG was Fallout 4 in 2015, while the online survival RPG Fallout 76 is the latest game released overall in 2018. It has been ongoing with regular injections of new content ever since and it has been regaining popularity following a rather weak start.
