Fallout – Amazon’s TV adaptation scores a second season

Posted Filed under

The show, based on the popular game, will be back for more post-apocalyptic fun. 

These days, in the world of international streaming releases, when a show hits big it really hits big. That appears to be the case with Fallout, which landed its debut run at Prime Video on April 10th.

Within its first four days of release, the show now ranks among Prime’s top three most-watched titles ever. It’s also their most-watched season globally since The Rings of Power.

In case you’ve never played Fallout, here’s the blurb:

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. Two-hundred 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.

Fallout stars Ella Purnell (Star Trek: Prodigy), Aaron Moten (Emancipation), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight).

The show Fallout comes from Kilter Films and executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, with Nolan directing the first three episodes. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers, creators, and co-showrunners.

Pushing the button for Fallout Series 2, Amazon MGM Studios’ Jennifer Salke said:

“Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show. The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations, while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park!

“We’d like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners.  We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of Fallout.”

We’d assume all the main cast will be back for the second season – we’ll keep you posted.
