The highly anticipated Fallout TV show, produced by Amazon Prime, has finally been given a concrete release date, set to premiere on April 12, 2024.
This news has left fans of the iconic video game series eagerly counting down the days until they can dive into the post-apocalyptic world once again, this time through the lens of a television series.
The release date was cleverly revealed through a teaser posted on the series’ official Twitter account, showcasing the boot-up sequence of a Pip-Boy, a recognizable device from the Fallout game series.
Fans with a keen eye would have noticed a few intriguing details hidden within the lines of green text scrolling across the Pip-Boy’s screen.
Notably, a mention of “Kilter,” likely a nod to Kilter Films, the production company behind the series, and the name of a holotape, “101_The End.” This has led to speculation that the first episode of the series may be titled “The End,” marking the beginning of a new adventure in the Fallout universe.
Setting the Stage in Los Angeles
While some fans might have initially thought of Vault 101 from Fallout 3, the series is confirmed to be set in Los Angeles, referred to as ‘The Boneyard’ in the Fallout universe.
This setting promises to provide a fresh perspective on the Fallout world, different from the settings of the games, and adds an extra layer of excitement for what’s to come.
The series boasts a star-studded cast, including Walton Goggins and Ella Purnell, and has shown off its high production values in a sneak peek teaser privately shown at Gamescom 2023.
The teaser gave a glimpse of the Brotherhood of Steel, a vault opening, multiple nuclear explosions, and a character presumed to be Walton Goggins’ ghoul character, drawing parallels to John Hancock from Fallout 4.

With its release date now set in stone, the Fallout TV show on Amazon Prime is shaping up to be a must-watch for fans of the series and lovers of post-apocalyptic drama alike. The series promises to deliver a fresh take on the Fallout universe, with high production values, a talented cast, and a story that stands on its own.
