Amazon's Fallout Series Gets Spring Release Date

Happy Fallout Day!


Late Monday morning, Prime Video announced that its live-action adaptation of the Fallout video game series has a release date. The new series, from Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, will premiere on April 12, 2024. The Prime series will be an original story based on part of the lore of the games, but not an exact adaptation of the games themselves.

The announcement comes on the 26th anniversary of Fallout Day, the annual celebration of all things dedicated to best-selling video game franchise. Amazon Studios also launched the series' official social media accounts with a special version of the iconic Pip-Boy interface from the games.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers, writers, and co-showrunners. Nolan and Joy executive produce via Kilter Films under their deal with Amazon. Athena Wickham of Kilter Films also executive produces along with Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.
