Amazon will soon start production on their upcoming Fallout TV series and has revealed that the pilot’s director will be Westworld co-creator, Jonathan Nolan. This is according to information released by Deadline. The TV series based on the popular games has Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Graham Wagner (Silicon Valley) as showrunners.
Jonathan Nolan is also set to executive produce the Fallout series alongside Lisa Joy who was the other co-creator on Westworld. The pair will be joined by executive producers Todd Howard from Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman, who is currently the director of publishing operations at Bethesda Softworks. Along with creating Westworld, Nolan also directed the HBO series’ pilot episode, its season 1 finale, and its season 3 premiere episode.

Nolan and Joy released a statement when the new series was first announced:
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.
Unfortunately, there is no announced release date for the Fallout TV series. So, for those itching to experience the franchise, the most current game is Fallout 76. The game had a rocky start but has gotten better with updates. It is an online RPG that was released on October 23, 2018 and continues to receive expansions.
Stay tuned for future updates to this exciting new series, and play Fallout 76 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
