No surprises that Fallout has been renewed for a second season on Prime Video, just one week after its premiered.

The series stars Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Kyle MacLachlan, Walton Goggins, Moisés Arias, Sarita Choudhury, Michael Emerson, Leslie Uggams, Frances Turner, Dave Register, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton, Rodrigo Luzzi, Annabel O’Hagan, and Xelia Mendes-Jones.

Nolan and Joy said, “Praise be to our insanely brilliant showrunners, Geneva and Graham, to our kick-ass cast, to Todd and James and all the legends at Bethesda, and to Jen, Vernon and the amazing team at Amazon for their incredible support of this show. We can’t wait to blow up the world all over again.”

“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.”

  1. I don’t know the games, but the show was really enjoyable. One of those shows that starts of decent and enjoyable but keeps getting better and by the end of the season you’re sad you have no more new episodes to watch,

  2. I had to smile at the mention of The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, but anyway I do like Fallout, even with all its gratuitous violence, and figuring out Fallout’s anachronistic retro universe is interesting, but I would have preferred to use late 1970’s technology icons not those from the 1950’s, the 1970’s would transition better into future high tech items like blasters and robotic armour than the early 1950’s, and perhaps more importantly would visually provide a far better selection of destroyed detritus of a past technological nuclear age, but maybe I’m just nit picking, Fallout’s production quality is quite impressive, if you don’t think too hard.

    1. The fans of the games would have your guts for garters if you changed the setting from 1950 to 1970. Canon-huggers got their knickers in a twist when a line in the series (Shady Sands) suggested that a game had been invalidated from the TV canon. Creator Todd Howard said in an interview with IGN that this was not the case.
