Fallout is heading to TV
The showrunners of HBO’s Westworld, Jonathon Nolan, and Lisa Joy, have announced their next project will be a Fallout series that will be on Amazon Prime Video.
The due have said they are aiming to capture “the harshness of the wasteland set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy,” while still maintaining the Fallout “ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies.”
The series will be a collaboration with Amazon Studios, Nolan, and Joy’s studio, Kilter Films. Bethesda, the developer of the RPG franchise, will have its own involvement. Todd Howard, who has directed many of the company’s big releases over the years like Skyrim, Fallout 4, and the upcoming mysterious sci-fi game Starfield, will be an executive producer. Howard will be joined by Director of Publishing Operations at Bethesda Softworks James Altman. Lionsgate will be another studio that will join in producing the upcoming series.
Westworld is based on the 1973 film of the same name directed by Michael Crichton. The franchise sprung onto the small screen in 2016 and concluded its third season this year. The HBO series will go for one final season with no known date as of writing.
