Experience the Wasteland in First ‘Fallout’ Trailer

Based on Bethesda Softworks’ popular dystopian video game franchise, the Prime Video original series centering on Vault 33 in Los Angeles premieres April 12, 2024.

Please remain calm. Prime Video has dropped the first official trailer for Fallout, the highly anticipated adaptation of Bethesda Softworks’s popular dystopian video game franchise.

The new series is completely true to the source material, and takes place in a future Los Angeles, 200 years after the apocalypse. The gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them. Our story centers on Vault 33.

Citizens must live in underground bunkers to protect themselves from radiation, mutants, and bandits after nuclear annihilation. The story begins in Vault 33, one such bunker that provides a prominent setting in the video games.

Ella Purnell stars as Lucy, a resident of Vault 33, and is joined by Walton Goggins as Ghoul the bounty hunter; Kyle MacLachlan as Overseer Hank; Aaron Moten as Brotherhood of Steel member Maximus; Moises Arias as Norm; Johnny Pemberton as Thaddeus; Aixa Kendrick as Moldaver’s Elite Guard; Leer Leary as Davey; Dave Register as Chet; Rodrigo Luzzi as Reg; and Xelia Mendes-Jones.

First look images were released last week, teasing the inside of the vault, the post-apocalyptic Wasteland, some lead characters, and even a power suit.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers and co-showrunners. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy executive produce via Kilter Films, and Nolan will direct the series’ pilot episode. Athena Wickham of Kilter Films will also executive produce, alongside Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.

The dystopian VFX were created by Amazon Studios, BlackGinger, CoSA VFX, Framestore, LED Volume, Magnopus, Mavericks VFX, One of Us, and Yafka, with Grant Everett acting as visual effects supervisor.

Amazon Studios and Kilter Films produce in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.

Fallout streams on Prime Video starting April 12, 2024.
