In 2020, it was revealed that a Fallout TV show was planned for production, and by 2023, countless set photos, insider details, and other tidbits of information had leaked from within the project. It’s time to bring all that information together in one guide, ultimately breaking down everything we know so far about the Fallout TV show.
Who Will Be In The Fallout TV Show?
As of July 2023, there are plenty of members of the cast list for the Fallout TV show that are known.
Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained, Sons of Anarchy)
Moises Arias (Hannah Montana, American Murderer, The King of Staten Island)
Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets, Army of the Dead, Churchill)
Kyle MacLachlan (Atlantic Crossing, Twin Peaks, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
Johnny Pemberton (Middlemost Post, Killer Instinct, Bad Neighbours 2)
There are sixteen confirmed cast members, according to IMDB, but these listed above are expected to form the core cast. It’s suspected that Moises Arias will assume the role of the main character, as on IMDB, he’s stated as appearing in 8 episodes, while every other actor appears in 5 episodes or fewer.
Walton Goggins, one of the most enigmatic actors to be appearing in the Fallout TV show, will be assuming the role of a Ghoul – one of the most instantly-recognisable creatures from the Fallout franchise.
There’s also a reference to an actor assuming the role of ‘Chet’ – Dave Register. In 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas, ‘Chet’ owns a store in Goodsprings in the region. From set images that have leaked, we know that the Fallout TV show takes place in a similar setting – could we see characters cross over?
What’s The Plot of the Fallout TV Series?
There isn’t a lot of information available about the plot of the Fallout TV show – it’s tough to figure out what’s going on from a series of set pictures, unfortunately.
However, from the cast list, some of these set pictures, and some of the tidbits of leaked information, we can start to build up a picture of sorts. We know that there’s a Vault, there’s at least one Vault Dweller that leaves that Vault, and we know that it’s set in the South – Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, or somewhere like that.
There’s a reference in one leaked image to a New California Republic flag, so it must be somewhere in that region.
We’ve seen countless references to Vault-Tec in the set photos that have been leaked, and there appears to be a link with some kind of biohazardous threat. In one series of behind-the-scenes pictures, we saw what we can assume is a working train, with Vault-Tec scientists wheeling something on a gurney under a blanket towards that train, which bore biohazard warning symbology.
Take the above image, for example – this is one of the only official images to be released showcasing the Fallout TV show. It shows what appears to be an adult male and a child from ‘Vault 33’ (which has never been documented) watching a female Vault Dweller leave the safety of the underground sanctuary. There’s a body on the floor near the door that’s unidentified, but the entire scene is bursting with potential.
It looks as though it’s going to be a faithful recreation, as suits of power armour, vault suits, and some weapons have been seen – and they look absolutely spot-on (but themed around Fallout 4’s models).
At the moment, it’s not known when the Fallout TV show is being released, but it’s expected to drop in the first half of 2024. It’ll release exclusively on Amazon Prime, as that’s the firm that has been producing the show.
Before the project went live, Bethesda’s writers reportedly teamed up with Amazon and Kilter Films’ writers, sharing knowledge, lore, and other elements needed to make the Fallout TV show as accurate as possible. From what we’ve already seen, it looks absolutely fantastic.
It’s believed that filming has wrapped, so all that’s left now is to market and release the show.
