Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. 200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them. From executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, starring Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins and more. Arriving April 12 on Prime Video.
I admit, I am a casual Fallout fan at best — I played Fallout 3 and that’s about it — but from what I recall about the game, this looks and feels right, even with the marketing having a tongue inserted firmly in its cheek with some of the big, bold epic CREDITS in this teaser.
Plus, when have you ever gone wrong with Walton Goggins?
May this be the show that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy stick the landing on.
Fallout hits Amazon Prime on April 12, 2024.
