The Fallout TV Show Has A Lengthy New Trailer And A Slightly Earlier Release Date

Out of the vault.

Prime Video has dropped a brand-new trailer for its upcoming TV series based on the iconic Fallout franchise, giving fans a full three-minute look at the new show.

It’s also revealed that Fallout will be dropping a day earlier than expected with the release date revised from April 12th to April 11th, which is when the entire run of episodes will become available to stream on Prime Video.

Set in Los Angeles a whole 200 years after a nuclear apocalypse, Fallout will follow Lucy (played by Ella Purnell) as she steps out of Vault 33 into the unknown and unhinged world above. The trailer gives us a good look at life both in the vault and above the surface, as well as the packed cast of eccentric characters played by the likes of Walton Goggins, Kyle MacLachlan, Michael Emerson and more.

“Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have,” the trailer’s description reads.

“200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them.”

“I did not want to do an interpretation of an existing story we did,” Bethesda’s Todd Howard recently said of the series, which is being led by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan (Westworld). “That was the other thing—a lot of pitches were, you know, ‘This is the movie of Fallout 3…’ I was like, ‘Yeah, we told that story.’ I don’t have a lot of interest seeing those translated. I was interested in someone telling a unique Fallout story. Treat it like a game. It gives the creators of the series their own playground to play in.”

Fallout premieres on April 11th, 2024 exclusively on Prime Video. You can find out more about Amazon Prime subscriptions and a free trial here.
