Amazon has shared an early look at Fallout, its upcoming Prime Video series based on Bethesda Game Studios’ post-apocalyptic RPG franchise. Released as part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the screenshot teases the inside of a Vault, which will seemingly look quite faithful to the ones that can be found throughout the games. Three Vault dwellers are present wearing Vault 33 jumpsuits, including what appears to be a dead body behind one of the railings.

Some of what’s been reported about the Fallout TV series so far:

  • Developed and written by Kilter Films’ Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy
  • Showrunners include Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel)
  • Nolan (Christopher Nolan’s brother) will direct the premiere of the series
  • Walton Goggins has a role, reportedly as a Ghoul
  • Amazon Studios announced the show in July 2020 after months of dealmaking

“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,” said Joy and Nolan when the show was announced. “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.”

“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,” added Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.”
