Season 2 Promises to Be an Incredible Experience for Fans!

The Fallout series has swept many viewers away with its superb atomic blast. And fans and newcomers alike do not seem to be at the end of their surprises.

Interviewed by our colleagues at The Wrap, co-directors Jonathan Nolan, Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner sat down to look back on the explosive success of the Fallout series. They also took the opportunity to tease what would happen in season 2. And fans are salivating at the idea. Be careful, however: certain elements of the article risk spoiling the first season. If you want to be surprised, we advise you to avoid going any further.


Ever stronger radiation in the Fallout series

Released on April 11 on Prime Video, the Fallout series was a real hit. Fans of the video game franchise and newcomers alike were irradiated by the adventures of Lucy, Maximus and the Ghoul. The fact that season 1 was released immediately in its entirety must have contributed to this success. The eighth and final episode also teases some very heavy stuff for a season 2 that is still unconfirmed, but more than likely. “ The challenge for a TV series is success. But I think the best strategy is to have an impressive first season […]and also think about what comes next from the start in case luck is on your side “, confided Jonathan Nolan on this subject. It seems that this strategy paid off, since the State of California notably put on the table a tax credit of 25 million dollars to support the project. The arrival of a season 2 for the series is therefore almost without doubt.

So, the thinking heads behind this television adaptation of Fallout have already thought about the sequel. It is here that a few SPOILERS will appear. You have been warned. In the final episode of the first season, fans were able to get some particularly exciting glimpses for the future. We indeed see Hank (Kyle MacLachlan) in a desert which does not look very welcoming. For good reason, we can briefly see the skull of a Deathclaw (a kind of extremely deadly giant lizard in the games), and the last shot offers us a panorama of the very popular city New Vegas. Those familiar with the games therefore already have a small idea of ​​the developments to come.

Showrunners passionate about games

During the interview, Jonathan Nolan and his colleagues spoke several times of their love for the Fallout games. This is felt in the series, and particularly in the final episode. “ There is one place in particular that means a lot to me and that I would be very excited to explore if we get the chance “. Without saying it, we understand that he mentions New Vegas. As for the other bony nod to fans, Graham Wagner also shared his excitement.

We definitely wanted Deathclaws, but we didn't want to just drop them randomly. It’s such a monumental element of the games. We want to keep some cards up our sleeve for Season 2 and pull them out properly. Adding the Deathclaws in season 1 would have been too much compared to the world building we already had to do there. We are therefore very excited to tackle one of the most iconic elements of the Fallout games in the continuation of the series “. The next adventures of Lucy, Maximus and the Ghoul therefore seem to be in very capable hands, to the delight of old and new fans alike.
