Fallout TV Show Launches On Amazon In April

Bethesda’s sci fi franchise gets its streaming debut on Prime on April 12th

The upcoming TV adaptation of the hit Bethesda franchise Fallout, is set for release on April 12, 2024 on Amazon Prime.

The franchise is set in the aftermath of a global nuclear apocalypse, with survivors fighting for survival against hostile mutations and factions battling for control of the wasteland. A core facet of the franchise are vaults – Doomsday bunkers which were used to perform a variety of social and scientific experiments on their inhabitants. From its origins on PC, the franchise has grown to encompass console, mobile and board games.

Fallout the TV series will be set in Los Angeles and focus on Vault 33. What experiment its inhabitants took part in is currently unknown, but the vault is set to appear in a future update of Fallout 76, the franchise’s first multiplayer entry. The series was first announced in 2020 and includes a cast including the likes of Walton Goggins, Michael Emerson and Yellowjackets star Ella Purnell.

A bright future for adaptations

While adaptations of games are nothing new, recent years have seen games being taken more seriously by filmmakers, with high-profile adaptations of the likes of The Last of Us and Detective Pikachu proving to be massive hits with fans and critics alike.

The adaptation stands for the fact that original developer Bethesda is one of the production companies behind the series. This move sees it – and parent company Microsoft – follow in the footsteps of chief rival Sony by opening up new revenue streams.
