Prime Video has shared the first official look at the upcoming Fallout TV series, and it looks absolutely spot on.
Amazon and Bethesda announced they would be teaming up to adapt Fallout back in 2020, revealing that the post-apocalyptic video game franchise will be adapted for the small screen by Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan. Bethesda boss Todd Howard is also attached as executive producer.
Check out the trailer for the excellent fan-made Fallout: Miami below!
The showrunners have managed to assemble an all-star cast, too. Fallout will feature Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), Xelia Mendes-Jones (Wheel Of Time), Aaron Moten (Disjointed), Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets), and Walton Goggins (Ant Man And The Wasp).
Now, to celebrate Fallout's 25th anniversary, Prime Video and Kilter Films have shared a spicy first look at the in-development show.
As you can see below, the shot doesn't give too much away - but it sure is Fallout. We can see three Vault dwellers wearing Vault 33 jumpsuits standing inside their fortified bunker. Given that these Vaults usually aren't designed to be opened again, lest the horrors of the wasteland creep in, it's surprising that the door to Vault 33 is open. And a shadowy figure is standing outside, looking in.
Very little is known about the plot of Fallout at the moment. It's unclear whether the show will adapt the story of one of the games, or cherry pick the best parts of each to tell an entirely new tale. However, given that Vault 33 doesn't exist in any of the games, I think we can probably assume the latter.
Fallout doesn't have a release date just yet, but anyone hankering for a gritty adaptation of a popular post-apocalyptic video game will be delighted to learn that HBO's The Last Of Us is on track to release next year.
