Fallout is a highly popular game series developed and published by Interplay Productions, now owned by Bethesda Softworks. The series debuted in 1997, with the latest installment released in 2022. Consisting of six main games, the series maintains a consistent premise: a main character traverses a post-apocalyptic wasteland with a specific objective.

In the television adaptation, the story mirrors this premise, featuring a Vault Dweller named Lucy who departs from her home in Vault 33. She embarks on a journey through the desolate wasteland of a ravaged Los Angeles in search of her kidnapped father.

The Fallout series, available on Amazon Prime, is set 219 years after The Great War, during which survivors sought refuge in underground shelters known as vaults, developed by Vault-Tec. The narrative centers around Lucy, a Vault Dweller, as she braves the wasteland of Los Angeles for the first time. Concurrently, the series depicts Paladin Maximus of the Brotherhood of Steel navigating life in the unforgiving wastelands, alongside a mysterious bounty hunter simply referred to as The Ghoul. Furthermore, the show delves into the reconstruction of civilization following the transformative effects of a nuclear conflict.

Todd Howard, Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios, expressed his enthusiasm for the adaptation, stating, “Over the last decade, we explored numerous avenues to bring Fallout to the screen. However, it became evident, from my initial conversations with Jonah and Lisa a few years back, that they, along with the team at Kilter, were the ideal candidates for the job. We greatly admire their work and eagerly anticipate collaborating with them and Amazon Studios.”

In an interview with Comic Book, Adam Shippey, a stunt performer, discussed his experience wearing the iconic Power Armor from the series, likening it to second nature: “I’m accustomed to it at this point… It’s like donning a well-worn pair of incredibly heavy pants.”
