Everything We Know About the ‘Fallout’ TV Series So Far


Fallout has held a special place in many gamers’ hearts for over two decades. Each entry in the post-apocalyptic role-playing game series has told a different story of survival and rebirth after disaster and follows the lives of Vault Dwellers seeking to rebuild civilization after years of global destruction. 

Now, viewers can journey to the world of Fallout without leaving their couch, as a new TV series adapted from the video games is coming soon to the small screen. 

When does the Fallout TV series premiere?

Fallout premieres in about a month from now on April 11. 

How many episodes of Fallout will there be?

Like many other shows (including another post-apocalyptic video game adaptation, The Last of Us), the Fallout series won’t be a long-winded effort to get through, consisting of eight episodes in total. 

Where will the Fallout series be streaming?

All eight episodes of Fallout will drop on April 11 on Prime Video, so hardcore fans can binge it all at once. 

Who stars in the Fallout TV series?

The Fallout series will be led by British actress Ella Purnell, who will play a young Vault Dweller named Lucy. Many viewers might recognize her as a teenage Maleficent from 2014’s Maleficent and more recently in the hit TV series Yellowjackets. She’ll be starring opposite Walton Goggins who plays bounty hunter Cooper Howard. 

The show will have a number of guests stars throughout its eight-episode run. Kyle MacLachlan, for example, will play Lucy’s father Hank, while onetime Disney Channel actor Moisés Arias will play Lucy’s brother Norm. Mike Doyle, Johnny Pemberton, Cherien Dabis, Dale Dickey, and Matty Cardarople also join the party. 

How much of the Fallout TV series will be inspired by the video games?

Don’t expect to see a rehashing of any of the plots from Fallout games over the years. The TV series will feature an entirely new narrative. 

“It’s a new story that comes, sort of, after the events we’ve seen,” series co-creator Graham Wagner said of the effort, per GamesRadar. “The show is built on like 25 years of creativity and thinking and building. And we sort of thought the best thing to do is to continue that, versus retread it. Because that’s sort of what has worked with Fallout over the years. It’s traded hands, it’s changed, it’s been altered, and it’s a living thing. And yeah, we kind of felt like we ought to take a swing at trying to build a new piece on top of all of that.”
