Amazon Studios along with Kilter Films are partnering together to develop a Fallout series. It will be produced by veteran producers Jonathan Nolan, yes of the Nolan brothers, and Lisa Joy who wrote some of the best shows on television including Burn Notice and Westworld.
The series will follow the events of the Fallout universe where people have locked themselves away in bunkers due to the threat of nuclear war. Years after the bombs dropped, the vaults open to a world drastically changed by the fallout of war. While many of the vault dwellers emerge without issue, many vaults were designed as experiments and those inside were either killed, mutated, or changed in some way.
Those who make it out to the surface must survive in the harsh world full of mutated creatures, infected humans, and radiation. Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, Kilter Films issued a brief statement about the series.
Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,”
There are six core games in the franchise with two spin-off games. One of which is a pinball machine and the other is Fallout Shelter. The most recent release is Fallout 76 which launched with its fair share of issues.

Todd Howard, the Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios, the developer of several Fallout games, is helping ensure the series stays on target.
Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” said Todd Howard, Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”
Here’s hoping that war does indeed not change and the show stays true to the world of Fallout.
