Fallout TV Series Begins Production This Year, Westworld Co-Creator To Direct Premiere

It was back in 2020 that Amazon Studios, Kilter Films and Bethesda announced the existence of a Fallout TV series, and now courtesy of Deadline, we've learned that it's set to enter production at some point in 2022.

The website says that Kilter Films and Westworld co-creator Jonathan Nolan will be directing the first episode, while Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Graham Wagner (Silicon Valley) have also joined the project as Showrunners. Nolan also serves as Executive Producer for the series along with Lisa Joy and Athena Wickham from Kilter Films, and Todd Howard and James Altman from Bethesda.

Here's what Bethesda had to say about the project back in 2020:

"The world of Fallout is one where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. The magic of the Fallout world is the harshness of the wasteland set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It is serious and harsh in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies."

Bethesda's Todd Howard commented on the series last year, stating that the company had wanted to bring Fallout to the screen for a decade, and he believed Westworld and Person of Interest creators Kilter Films were finally the "ones to do it right". In return, Kilter Films said they were "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."

Excited for this? Do you think it'll live up to expectations? Let us know down in the comments below.
