This year, Amazon will begin production on a TV series based on the Fallout video games. Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Graham Wagner (Silicon Valley) will serve as showrunners on the project, according to Deadline and Variety; the official Fallout Twitter account retweeted Deadline’s article as confirmation.
Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, will executive produce the Prime Video drama. Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman of Bethesda Softworks are also executive producers. According to Deadline and Variety, Nolan will helm the first episode.
In July, the concert was originally announced. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter at the time, Joy and Nolan remarked, “Fallout is one of the greatest gaming series of all time.” “Each chapter of this immensely inventive narrative has cost us many hours of time we could have spent with our families and friends.”
As a result, we’re ecstatic to be working with Todd Howard and the rest of Bethesda’s creative lunatics to bring this enormous, subversive, and darkly humorous universe to life with Amazon Studios.”
The Fallout video games are post-apocalyptic role-playing games set in an alternate future influenced by post-war images from the 1950s. Fallout 3 was launched in 2008 after Bethesda purchased the series’ license in 2004. Fallout 4 was the most current mainline game, published in 2015, while Fallout 76, a multiplayer offshoot, was released in 2018.
Although no new Fallout games have been revealed, due to Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, future games in the series will most likely be limited to Xbox and PC platforms.
