Amazon purchased the rights to produce a live-action project in 2020, and the series was announced that July, with Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's Kilter Films joined by Bethesda Game Studios in the production. Nolan directed the first three episodes. Bethesda Game Studios producer Todd Howard, who directed various games in the series, signed on to executive produce alongside Nolan and Joy. Robertson-Dworet and Wagner were hired as the series' showrunners in January 2022, and Goggins and Purnell were cast in February and March, respectively.

Fallout premiered on Prime Video on April 10, 2024. The series received generally positive reviews from critics and fans, with particular praise going towards the performances (particularly Purnell, Moten, and Goggins), writing, visuals, production design, faithfulness to the source material, and some considered it as one of the best video game adaptations.[4] Later that month, the series was renewed for a second season.

Premise

edit

The series depicts the aftermath of the Great War of 2077, an apocalyptic nuclear exchange between the United States and China in an alternate history of Earth where advances in nuclear technology after WWII led to the emergence of a retrofuturistic society and a subsequent resource war.[5] Many survivors took refuge in fallout bunkers known as Vaults, most being unaware that each Vault was designed to perform sociological and psychological experiments on the Vault Dwellers on behalf of Vault-Tec. More than 200 years later in 2296,[6] a young woman named Lucy leaves behind her home in Vault 33 to venture out into the dangerously unforgiving wasteland of a devastated Los Angeles to look for her father, who has been kidnapped by wasteland raiders. Along the way, she meets a Brotherhood of Steel squire and a legendary ghoul bounty hunter, each having their own mysterious pasts and agendas to settle.

In 2077, actor Cooper Howard and his daughter Janey are caught in the middle of a nuclear attack against Los Angeles. 219 years later, Vault 33 dweller Lucy MacLean volunteers for an arranged marriage with a dweller from Vault 32, which is connected to 33 along with Vault 31. After the wedding, the Vault 32 visitors are revealed to be raiders led by Lee Moldaver. Lucy's father and overseer of Vault 33, Hank MacLean, is forced to leave with them. In defiance of Vault regulations, Lucy decides to go to the surface by herself to search for her father. Meanwhile, Brotherhood of Steel aspirant Maximus is promoted to the rank of squire and joins Knight Titus in hunting for a member of the Enclave. Elsewhere, several bounty hunters locate Cooper, who has been transformed by radiation into a ghoul, and attempt to recruit him to find the same Enclave member. Instead, the Ghoul kills them all and pursues the bounty alone.
2"The Target"Jonathan NolanGeneva Robertson-Dworet & Graham WagnerApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
In an Enclave facility, Dr. Siggi Wilzig develops a mysterious blue device before injecting it into his neck. He flees the facility with his experimental dog, CX404. In the wasteland, Lucy encounters Wilzig, who urges her to return to Vault 33. Maximus and Titus begin their search and are attacked by a mutant bear. Titus is wounded, but his mistreatment of Maximus prompts the squire to let him bleed out before taking the knight's power armor for himself. Lucy reunites with Wilzig in Filly, where he attempts to arrange safe passage to Moldaver. Seeking the bounty, the Ghoul attacks them but is distracted by Maximus, allowing Lucy to escape with Wilzig. A wounded CX404 is left behind, but the Ghoul heals the dog and uses her to track Wilzig. Severely wounded, Wilzig ingests cyanide as he believes he will slow Lucy down, instructing her to deliver his head to Moldaver in exchange for Hank.
3"The Head"Jonathan NolanGeneva Robertson-Dworet & Graham WagnerApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
Maximus assumes Titus's identity, and the Brotherhood sends a new squire, former bully Thaddeus, believing Maximus dead. Lucy is attacked by a mutated gulper which swallows Wilzig's head. The Ghoul arrives with CX404 and uses Lucy as bait to lure out the gulper, but the chems which maintain his health are destroyed in the attempt. Leaving CX404 behind, the Ghoul departs with Lucy as his prisoner. Maximus and Thaddeus track the head to the same location and defeat the gulper, recovering the head and taking custody of CX404. Back in Vault 33, Norm asks the council to execute several captured raiders for murder, but he is rebuffed. In 2077, Cooper becomes a celebrity spokesman for Vault-Tec at the encouragement of his wife, a top company executive.

He and Chet explore Vault 32, discovering that its residents died two years prior as a consequence of infighting and that someone used his deceased mother Rose's Pip-Boy to let the raiders in. The Ghoul encounters his friend Roger, a ghoul on the brink of going feral. He kills Roger and cannibalizes him in front of Lucy. The Ghoul takes Lucy to an abandoned supermarket. He trades her to a gang of organ harvesters for replacement chems but collapses before the trade is complete. About to be cut open, Lucy fights back and frees the captive ghouls held by the harvesters. The feral ghouls attack her and the gang, and Lucy is forced to kill for the first time. She leaves, but not before giving the Ghoul the chems he needs.
5"The Past"Clare KilnerCarson MellApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
Maximus confesses his true identity to Thaddeus. Disgusted, Thaddeus disables Maximus's power armor and leaves with Wilzig's head and CX404. Lucy finds Maximus and they agree to work together to retrieve the head. The pair stumble upon the ruins of Shady Sands, a once thriving post-war city that was the capital of the prosperous New California Republic (NCR), and Maximus's former home, in their pursuit. Maximus is injured by a cannibalistic Fiend, and while searching for medical supplies in an abandoned Vault-Tec building, the two accidentally fall into Vault 4. Back in Vault 33, council president Betty Pearson is elected as overseer by a 98% majority. Norm hacks Vault 32's central computer and finds that every overseer of Vaults 32 and 33 originally came from Vault 31, including his father. Betty orders that Vault 32 be repopulated by 33 once cleared of the deceased dwellers.
6"The Trap"Frederick E.O. ToyeKarey DornettoApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
Lucy and Maximus are greeted by Birdie, a Shady Sands survivor, and Ben, the Vault 4 overseer. They explain that Vault 4 has opened itself to the surface, taking in many refugees from Shady Sands and the surrounding area. While Maximus slowly acclimates to the Vault, Lucy is horrified over the refugees' eccentric rituals and worship of Moldaver as "The Flame Mother". Howard wakes up to find an armed posse has arrested him for past crimes; he stalls for time to regain strength and then easily overpowers and kills them. Convinced that Vault 4 is hiding something, Lucy ventures to the forbidden level 12. She uncovers human experiments before getting caught, but it is explained to her that Vault 4 citizens fought back against these scientists and now live in peace. Pre-War, Cooper becomes conflicted over the secrecy of Barb's association with Vault-Tec. He is invited to a covert meeting to discuss the conspiracy behind Vault-Tec, hosted by a younger Moldaver.
7"The Radio"Frederick E.O. Toye, Clare KilnerChaz HawkinsApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
Residents of Vault 4 gather as Lucy is prepped for expulsion from the vault. Maximus leaves with her, after a brief conflict with the vault residents. Lucy invite Maximus to live with her in Vault 33. Thaddeus abandons CX404 and makes contact with the Brotherhood. Lucy and Maximus eventually catch up with Thaddeus; after learning that he is turning into a ghoul, for which the Brotherhood would put him to death, Thaddeus relinquishes the head. Lucy continues her journey alone while Maximus stays behind to distract the Brotherhood. Norm secretly breaks into Vault 31. Meanwhile, the Ghoul, having determined Moldaver's location, reunites with CX404, renaming her Dogmeat. In 2077, a younger Moldaver (then named Ms. Williams) reveals that the war-profiting conglomerate behind Vault-Tec shelved her cold fusion research despite its potential to provide unlimited energy and prevent war with China over dwindling oil resources. She persuades Howard that he cannot trust his wife and should record all her conversations with the company board.
8"The Beginning"Wayne YipGursimran SandhuApril 10, 2024 (2024-04-10)
Lucy and Norm, independently, learn the truth of the war, while the Ghoul also reminisces about that truth. Pre-War, Cooper eavesdrops on Barb and her colleague, Bud Askins, to his horror learning they are explicitly managing Vault-Tec's plans to start a nuclear war to eliminate its competitors. Cooper also meets young Betty Pearson and Hank MacLean. Norm discovers Vault 31 contains the cryogenically stored junior executives of Vault-Tec, overseen by the cyborg brain-on-wheels of Bud, who traps Norm in Vault 31. Lucy turns the head over to Moldaver, who reveals that Rose had fled Vault 33 with her children years earlier. Hank tracked her down and was responsible for the nuclear bombing of Shady Sands, turning Rose into a feral ghoul. Maximus is forgiven by the Brotherhood and joins the battle against Moldaver's forces. Lucy convinces Hank to give Moldaver the code activating her fusion reactor. Maximus frees Lucy's father but attacks him after learning Hank's role in Shady Sands destruction. Lucy disowns Hank for his actions after he attacks Maximus. The Ghoul, believing his family might still be alive, invites Lucy to travel with him and Dogmeat to find Vault-Tec's leaders. Lucy kills Rose and takes the Ghoul up on his offer. Moldaver activates the fusion reactor, powering Los Angeles just before she dies from her wounds. The Brotherhood forces assume that Maximus is responsible for Moldaver's death and acclaim him as Knight Maximus. Hank flees to the remains of New Vegas.

Production

Development

edit

Bethesda had been approached multiple times about a television adaptation of the Fallout video games since the developer released Fallout 3 in 2008, according to Bethesda's Todd Howard, though he felt none of the suggestions met the vision of the Fallout series.[8] Bethesda's marketing executive Pete Hines had also cautioned the company in 2015 about the potential impact of a poor adaptation of their video games, saying, "There's way more things that can go wrong than can go right with this," since the adaptation's director may override the vision of the series.[9] Hines pointed to the example of the 2005 Doom film as an example of a bad adaptation.[9]

The situation changed when Jonathan Nolan approached Bethesda with his idea of a Fallout television series, having been an avid player of the game series. Howard, having seen what Nolan had created with the Westworld series, found that Nolan had a clear vision for the adaptation, and agreed this approach was a good way to bring the game series to the television screen.[8][10] Bethesda gave Nolan freedom to craft a story as long as it remained true to the Fallout universe but served as its own unique story within the game series and not translate one of the existing games to television.[10]

The television adaptation was formally announced in July 2020 under Amazon Studios (later renamed Amazon MGM Studios) with Nolan and Lisa Joy developing the work.[11] Joy described the series as "a gonzo, crazy, funny, adventure, and mindfuck like none you've ever seen before".[12]

In January 2022, Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner were hired as showrunners for the series, with Nolan set to direct the pilot episode.[13]

The series is canon within the Fallout continuity. Howard wanted an original story, instead of an adaptation of the games,[14] though the series discreetly continues game storylines and factions, such as the Brotherhood of Steel. The series' 2296 setting is the furthest in the future that the Fallout franchise has occurred.[15] On April 18, 2024, Amazon Prime Video renewed the series for a second season, following the immense success of the first season's release.[16] Season 1 of the show had a budget of $153 million.[17]

Casting

edit

In February 2022, Walton Goggins was cast in a lead role as Cooper Howard, a Hollywood actor who became a Ghoul after the bombs fell.[18] In March 2022, Ella Purnell joined the cast as a peppy Vault-Dweller.[19] In June 2022, Kyle MacLachlan (Hank MacLean), Xelia Mendes-Jones (Dane) and Aaron Moten (Maximus) joined as regulars.[20]

In October 2023, additional casting including Sarita Choudhury (Moldaver), Michael Emerson (Dr. Siggi Wilzig), Leslie Uggams (Betty Pearson) and Zach Cherry (Woody Thomas) was announced.[21]

Filming

edit
 
An overhead shot of Kolmanskop, Namibia, which was used for filming shots in the wasteland.

Filming began on July 5, 2022, in New Jersey, New York and Utah.[22] Wasteland scenes were additionally filmed in Kolmanskop, a former mining operation-turned-ghost town, as well as on Namibia's infamous Skeleton Coast. The desolate location is where desert sands meet the sea, where the western Namib Desert reaches Namibia's South Atlantic coastline. As a result of the treacherous seas offshore, the "skeleton" coast is dotted with both historic and recent shipwrecks;[23] some scenes were filmed at the wreck of the Eduard Bohlen.[24] Nolan directed the first three episodes of the series, with Stuart Dryburgh and Teodoro Maniaci as cinematographers.[25][26]

Primary filming of the second season will occur in Los Angeles and Toronto, to take advantage of a $25 million tax incentive offered by California.[27] Filming is scheduled to begin in September 2024.[28]

Music

edit

In January 2024, it was revealed that Ramin Djawadi had composed a score inspired by the works of Inon Zur's Fallout series compositions.[29] Fallout also features a licensed soundtrack like the video game series.[30][31]

The television series' first soundtrack was released by Amazon on April 8, 2024.[32]

Post-production

edit

Jay Worth was the production's visual effects supervisor,[33] returning to work with director Jonathan Nolan and executive producer Lisa Joy following Person of Interest, Westworld, The Peripheral and Reminiscence. Grant Everett was the on-set visual effects supervisor who brought together a variety of visual effects studios for the environment, creatures, hard surface work and more. Framestore in Montreal took on the Yao Gui and Gulper creature work, RISE FX in Germany handled the Vertibird shots, Power Armor work and numerous environments, Swedish studio Important Looking Pirates took on the Cyclops overseer of Vault 4 and Snip-Snip.[34] FutureWorks in India did the Ghoul nosework. Refuge, CoSA, Mavericks, One of Us, Studio 8 and Deep Water FX were also involved across the 3,300 visual effects shots of the season.[35]

Release

edit

Fallout was scheduled to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 12, 2024,[36][21] but this date was later moved forward to be released on April 10, 2024, at 6 PM Pacific Time (GMT-8:00).[37]

Reception

edit

Viewership

edit

According to Amazon, Fallout pulled in 65 million viewers in its first 16 days of availability. It was the second most-watched title in the history of the platform.[38]

The adaptation's success on Amazon Prime Video has led to renewed commercial success of the Fallout video games, including the original game; according to Steam Charts, it experienced the highest percentage increase in player base at 160%.[39]

Critical response

edit

Fallout received positive reviews from critics and fans.[40] The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 93% approval rating based on 120 critic reviews, with an average rating of 8/10. The website's critics consensus reads, "An adaptation that feels like a true extension of the games, Fallout is a post-apocalyptic blast for newcomers and longtime fans alike."[41] Metacritic assigned a score of 73 out of 100 based on 33 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[42]

Kristen Baldwin of Entertainment Weekly gave the series a B+ and said, "The eight-episode season exists in a vivid and captivating universe that will be familiar to gamers—though knowledge of the franchise isn't required to enjoy its darkly comic dystopian pleasures."[43] Reviewing the series for the San Francisco Chronicle, Zaki Hasan gave a rating of 3/4 and wrote, "With a raft of unfolding mysteries, protagonists we care about and a quest we want to see through to the end, Fallout is well situated to grow the loyal fan base that has kept the video game franchise going for 27 years."[44]

In a YouTube video, Tim Cain praised the adaptation for matching the mood of the series and for its easter eggs and characters. He also defended the adaptation from accusations of contradicting the Fallout canon.[45][46][47]
