Prime Video Renews ‘Fallout’ for Season 2

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s critically-acclaimed series, set in the post-apocalyptic world of the best-selling global video game franchise, gets picked up for another season; the entire first season is now streaming. 

Okey Dokey! Amazon’s Fallout series has officially been renewed for a second season at Prime Video. The production is also set to reel in $25 million in tax credits by relocating production to California.

Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. 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. 

Jonathan Nolan directed the first three episodes. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers, writers, and co-showrunners. The series comes from Kilter Films and executive producers Nolan and Lisa Joy.

Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. “The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations, while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park! We’d like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners. We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of ‘Fallout.’”

The series stars Purnell (Yellowjackets), Aaron Moten (Emancipation) and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight), alongside Moisés Arias (The King of Staten Island); Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks); Choudhury (Homeland); Michael Emerson (Person of Interest); Leslie Uggams (Deadpool); Frances Turner (The Boys); Dave Register (Heightened); Zach Cherry (Severance); Johnny Pemberton (Ant-Man); Rodrigo Luzzi (Dead Ringers); Annabel O'Hagan (Law & Order: SVU); and Xelia Mendes-Jones (The Wheel of Time). 

BlackGinger, CoSA VFX, Framestore, FutureWorks Media Ltd., Important Looking Pirates, Magnopus, Mavericks, One of Us, Refuge, and Yafka collaborated to create the VFX. Grant Everett acts as visual effects supervisor, with Brannek Gaudet as visual effects supervisor for Mavericks, Fred Ruff for Refuge, and Antonis Kotzias for Yafka.

Athena Wickham of Kilter Films also executive produces, along with Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks. Amazon MGM Studios and Kilter Films produce in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.
