For those that aren’t too familiar with, Fallout its a beloved gaming franchise from the minds at Bethesda.
And from the looks of it, A TV series is in the makings of it. But not to worry! This won’t be a disappointment. Amazon Studios has licensed the rights over to Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, the creators and executive producers of the hit television series Westworld!
Their amazing Films production company will be producing the Fallout series alongside Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks
If you’re not familiar with the franchise, here’s a brief description:
The world of Fallout is one where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. In Fallout, the harshness of the wasteland is set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It is serious in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies.
Talking about their excitement for the project, Joy and Nolan released the following statement:
Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios.
Albert Cheng of Amazon Studios said:
Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life. We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.
Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios is excited that Fallout is finally making its way to “the screen” after toying with the idea for the last decade:
Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen. But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.
There has yet to be a release date and i honestly don’t think it will be done for a while but i know this show is going to a HUGE fan base and gonna have loads of potentials!
