Ella Purnell may have tried her best to get into a Vault in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, but she’s now going to be leaving one with Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout.
The series is set to come out early next year, and we have our first teaser for the show giving us a look at Vault-dwellers, the Brotherhood of Steel, and more. Watch this:
The official description reads:
Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. 200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them.
Probably the biggest hook of this show besides the IP is that the series is being run by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, both whom are behind HBO’s fantastic sci-fi series Westworld. We don’t know how much of the Westworld vibe will make its way to Fallout, but it does seem like Fallout will have more room for whimsy and silly violence.
Besides Purnell, the show also stars the likes of Aaron Moten, Chris Parnell, Kyle MacLachlan, and Walton Goggins.
The world of the show is definitely interesting, and with the games being so popular, this could be Amazon’s attempt at getting a video game adaptation that receives The Last of Us-level of critical acclaim.
Fallout premieres on Amazon Prime Video on April 12, 2024.
