Fallout Season 2 Could Introduce Deathclaws And Head To A New Location

Jonathan Nolan says it would have been irresponsible to not think about Season 2 during the making of Season 1.


Prime Video has yet to officially renew Fallout for a second season, but it seems likely, and now some of the key people working on the show have discussed what to expect in Season 2 if it gets made.

Jonathan Nolan, who directed the first three episodes of Season 1 and is an executive producer on the series overall, told The Wrap, "The challenge, especially with television, is in success, the hope that you get to go again." He said when he was making Fallout Season 1, the aim was to create a "terrific season of television," and he also thought about what could come next.

"I think at the same time, you'd be remiss, almost irresponsible, to not have started to talk about where your story could take you," Nolan said. "So we have been talking from the beginning about how this would develop and evolve in subsequent seasons, if we should be so lucky."

Nolan went on to say that there is "one locale in particular" that he would be excited to explore if Fallout was renewed for a second season. He did not say what this location is, however.

Co-showrunner Graham Wagner added that Season 2 could feature Deathclaws, which are genetically created creatures in the Fallout lore. The team wanted to have Deathclaws in Season 1, but decided to save them for Season 2 "to be able to do it properly."

"So Season 2, we're very excited to finally tackle one of the most iconic elements of the games," Wagner said.

The other co-showrunner, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, said the team was tempted to try a "kitchen sink approach" and put many more Fallout elements into Season 1, but opted to save some for Season 2.

"We didn’t want to see the show to seem like it was written by people who just like spent 10 seconds reading the Wikipedia page for Fallout and didn't bother to like bring in some deeper cuts," Robertson-Dworet said.

The California Film Commission recently revealed that Fallout could move production to California for Season 2, though nothing is confirmed at this point.
