Fallout Has Officially Been Renewed For A Season 2

TV. TV never changes.

After early reports (and the show itself) had already suggested it was happening, it’s now official – Prime Video’s Fallout series has been renewed for a second season.

Variety had reported last week that the show had been approved to receive $25 million USD in tax credits in exchange for moving production of the second season to California.

“Praise be to our insanely brilliant showrunners, Geneva and Graham, to our kick-ass cast, to Todd and James and all the legends at Bethesda, and to Jen, Vernon and the amazing team at Amazon for their incredible support of this show. We can’t wait to blow up the world all over again,” showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have said of the news.

“Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show,” added Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. “The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations, while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park! We’d like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners. We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of ‘Fallout.”

In his review of the first season of Fallout, which premiered in full on Prime Video last week, Brodie wrote, “With a surprisingly riveting original story to tell, Fallout is a rollicking ride through all-too familiar wastes. It might not prove to set the world on fire, though with enough fan service to shake a Ripper at, it’s assured to start a flame in the hearts of long-time fans.”
