In 1997, Interplay Entertainment introduced players to the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout.

While Bethesda Softworks has plans to Fallout 5the live action series by fallout it will come much sooner. The original series of Amazon Prime Video is already in production. And to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first game, Prime Video has shared a new video to promote the first adaptation of fallout.
There’s no new footage from the show itself in this mini-documentary, but it does feature some of the game franchise’s key behind-the-scenes figures who are impressed to see their work make the jump to another medium. And in a hilarious moment, executive producer Jonathan Nolan is shown on set as he pretends to know nothing about the game. But it doesn’t take long for Nolan to admit that he was addicted to the first fallout.
Landing Nolan and his wife/creative partner, Lisa Joy, was one of the biggest coups Prime Video pulled off for this series. Nolan and Joy breathed new life into Westworld, making it one of HBO’s biggest shows. They also recently released The Peripheral on Prime Video.
So far, the only confirmed cast members are Walton Goggins, Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Xelia Mendes-Jones, and Aaron Moten. Goggins is rumored to play a heavily mutated Ghoul, but no further details on the rest of the characters have been released yet.
