Fallout has already scored a green light for a second season

Amazon’s live adaptation of Fallout was so well-received, the fourth main game in the franchise had a resurgence in sales almost a decade after it was released. If you were ever worried about its fate despite the success it enjoyed, you can rest easy, for now: Amazon has already renewed the show for a second season, mere days after the first one debuted. The Fallout universe is set in a post-apocalyptic world, decades after a nuclear war decimated the planet. Ella Purnell plays Lucy in the series, a vault dweller who was forced to go to the surface to rescue her father.

Walton Goggins seems to be a hit with audiences as the Ghoul, a radioactive noseless bounty-hunting corpse. We called him an “enlightened choice” for the role in our review and found this to be his most engaging performance yet. As a whole, we liked Fallout almost as much as we liked the TV adaptation of the The Last of Us. It features fantastic visuals with detailed sets and costumes that stay true to the source materials, and it has a story that flows well and doesn’t feel like it’s struggling to juggle several different plotlines. The game is also violent and gory, though, and it’s not really for the faint of heart.

The show is one of Amazon’s projects under executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, who Prime Video signed back in 2019. “We can’t wait to blow up the world all over again,” Nolan and Joy said, indicating that they’ll be back for the next season, though Amazon has yet to announce when it will begin production or if it has a timeline for the project.
