Fallout takes place in the 1940s after a nuclear war and 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 PortlandiaSilicon Valley, and Baskets. Jonathan Nolan is set to direct the premiere.

The Fallout series was launched in 1997 on PC by Interplay Productions. However, its popularity ballooned in 2008 after Bethesda released Fallout 3 for consoles and PC, which gave it an ambitious action spin similar to its The Elder Scrolls fantasy games. Since then, Fallout 4, the multiplayer-focused Fallout 76, and a mobile title Fallout Shelter have been released.

Fallout marks yet another fantasy or sci-fi series for the streaming giant. The company already has shows coming from The Lord of the RingsBlade Runner, and Mass Effect, an initiative that came out of The Wheel of Time‘s historic debut on Prime Video.
