We now know the release date of the Fallout TV series, which fans have been waiting for for a long time. Amazon Prime revealed it during a very first trailer which reveals the universe of this series inspired by the games of the same name. The fans are reassured, the codes seem to be well respected.
The Fallout TV series uses the codes of the game, but not only
The first details about the Fallout TV series were revealed to us at the end of November. We thus learned that the story took place in 2296, 219 before after nuclear war broke out on Earth. Lucy, played by Ella Purnell, is forced to leave the shelter where generations of survivors have learned to make do with the minimum, a crisis forcing her to embark on a rescue mission that will lead her to encountering all manner of dangers, such as giant insects, ravenous mutant “abominations”, and a human population of sunburned miscreants who disregard manners and morals.
Although the game universe is very completely preserved, Lucy will meet new characters new to the franchise such as the aspiring soldier Maximus (Aaron Moten, Petey in The Night Of), who grew up on the surface, but was raised by the Brotherhood of Steel. Here is Amazon Prime’s description of the series.
Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of the haves and the have-nots in a world where there is almost nothing left to have. 200 years after the apocalypse, the kind inhabitants of the luxurious fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape that their ancestors left behind – and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, joyously strange and extremely violent universe that waits.
The Fallout series will be released in April 2024 and the first trailer reassures
This new Amazon Prime series is finally entitled to its trailer! While some feared a sanitized series compared to the games, everything suggests that this will not be the case. We thus find the ghoul played by Walton Goggins, a character who is a bounty hunter. Good news, the TV series seems to have retained the humor of the games without denying the violence that reigns in the world of Fallout imagined by Bethesda.
As a reminder, the Fallout TV series is headed by executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, which stars Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, Aaron Moten and many others. Released April 12, 2024 on Prime Video.
