Fallout renewed

Fallout is a spectacular success on Prime Video. The post-apocalyptic sci-fi series has been renewed for a second season.


Fallout was originally announced in 2020 during the pandemic and has exceeded all expectations.

The live-action adaptation of Bethesda's video game franchise from the showrunners of Westworld, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, is prestige television on par with HBO's The Last of Us. Like The Last of Us, viewers do not have to have prior knowledge of the Fallout games, but fans (myself included) can have fun spotting all the Easter eggs. The amazing Ella Purnell (Lucy MacLean) looks like a live-action Battle Angel Alita!

However, unlike The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, all episodes of Fallout dropped on Prime Video on 11th April. I refuse to binge-watch and wish to savour the story weekly. This is an era of curated content and it's great that audiences can decide on how and when they consume media.

In related news. Following the release of the Fallout live-action series, Fallout 4 is the best-selling video game in Europe. I haven’t played Fallout 4 since the heyday of the PlayStation 4 (PS4). Somehow Codsworth, a robot butler, was MIA in the wasteland and my character, named Sarah Jane Smith in homage to the fan-favourite Doctor Who companion, failed to find him in shades of losing Lydia in Skyrim. Fallout 4 is getting a next-gen update next week and I’ll begin a new playthrough on Xbox Game Pass.

Fallout is streaming exclusively on Prime Video (affiliate link).
