Fallout TV Show Release Date Set For Prime Video Series

After months of teases, Prime Video has officially set the Fallout TV show premiere date, revealing when the highly anticipated live-action series will begin streaming.

In its first-ever post to Twitter to celebrate “Fallout Day,” the official Fallout on Prime Twitter account released a short video revealing that the series will premiere on April 12, 2024. The series comes from Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and is based on the iconic game franchise originally created by Tim Cain at Interplay Productions in 1997.

The series has since gone on to spawn a number of hit sequels and spin-offs, with Bethesda Softworks acquiring the rights to the series in 2007.

What do we know about the Fallout TV show?

Fallout takes place in the 1940s after a nuclear war. The television series will feature Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner as showrunners. Robertson-Dworet has writing credits on Captain Marvel and the 2018 Tomb Raider film, while Wagner has experience as an executive producer on Portlandia, Silicon Valley, and Baskets. Jonathan Nolan is set to direct the premiere. Kyle MacLachlan, Xelia Mendes-Jones, Aaron Moten, Ella Purnell, and Walton Goggins have all been confirmed for the show.

Set photos from the series emerged earlier this year that showed off a warehouse with a Vault-Tec logo on it, as well as some actors dressed as what appeared to be Raiders.

Fallout is a series of role-playing games that began in 1997. Set in a post-apocalyptic 1950s-themed United States, the Fallout series puts players in the role of various wanderers and survivors as they freely traverse an American wasteland filled with mutants, radiated animals, and bandits. The next mainline title, Fallout 5, will apparently enter development once The Elder Scrolls VI is completed.
