“But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago that they and the Kilter team were the ones doing it right. We’re huge fans of their work and we couldn’t be more excited to work with them and with Amazon Studios.”

Fallout release date
Unfortunately we don’t know when to expect To fall so we’ll have to wait patiently until a release date is announced. Please wait!
Fallout plot: how far will it follow video games?
Prime Video has yet to confirm an official plot for the new adaptation, but there are plenty of possibilities that could be explored given that the To fall The franchise has featured different locations, factions, and creatures over the years.
Fallout 3 takes place in Washington DC (renamed Capital Wasteland), while the follow-up Fallout: New Vegas takes place in the Mojave Desert, and Fallout 4 takes place in the ruins of Boston, known as the Commonwealth. It is not yet known if the series will be set in one of these locations, or if it will be an entirely new one.
While video games always feature a human protagonist, often a former Vault Dweller, we know that the main character in this series is a ghoul, which are mutated humans who have been exposed to intense and prolonged radiation over time. They look like zombies but can still live and function normally, however, many people are repelled by them due to their appearance.
Actor Walton Goggins, who will play the as-yet-unknown ghoul, has shared some behind-the-scenes photos from the set of To fall where he wrote: “Day 1…FALLOUT…for Amazon. Take a deep breath….Exhale…Let’s see where that road goes too.”
Over time, we should expect to see photos of Walton after he’s been “ghoulified”, to look like the irradiated humans featured in the series. So maybe we’ll get a glimpse of some cool practical effects in the coming months!
Fallout Cast: Who’s in the Adaptation?
Walton Goggins is joined by an excellent cast so far, including yellow jackets starring Ella Purnell, twin peaks‘Kyle McLachlan, The wheel of time Season 2 star Xelia Mendes-Jones and Disjointed’s Aaron Moten.
It’s not yet clear who these actors will play, but there’s a mountain of possibilities. Could President John Henry Eden make an appearance or the much-loved Galaxy News Radio host Three-Dog? We’ll have to wait and see!
Fallout: first images
Fans spotted sets for To fall in Staten Island, New York, but it’s not yet known if the series will actually take place there or if it will take place in a different location.
Set footage shows a rusty, wrecked Super Duper Mart and vehicles like you’d encounter in the video game series. So now we know that some scenes may be filmed in the fictional supermarket where the raiders often hang out.

We added dirt to the front of the store and stacked cars. The lights are on inside, so we have to imagine that they are working inside. @Fallout #StatenIsland @amazon @BethesdaStudios #FalloutNewYork #FalloutNY #FalloutTV DM me if you need extras! pic.twitter.com/6IE4MKGtJnJuly 20, 2022
So far, this is our only glimpse of the To fall sets, but we’ll be sure to update you if more are released to give fans a taste of what’s to come.
Other filming locations haven’t been confirmed either, so outside of Staten Island we don’t know where else. To fall will be filmed for now.
Is there a trailer yet?
Unfortunately no… you just have to be patient!
