Take a look at the Fallout trailer

The official trailer gives us our first glimpse into the pospost-apocalyptictapocalyptical world of Fallout. After finding sanctuary in Vaults, specially constructed to shield humanity from nuclear devastation, the survivors sought refuge, waiting for the world to begin anew.

Now, 200 years later, a brave young woman dares to abandon the safety of her home along with her family and all she has ever known, venturing into the deadly and untamed wasteland of a ravaged Los Angeles. Ready to restart civilization...or so she thought.

From game to screen, the Fallout series will wow audiences

At the heart of the series lies the signature Fallout universe—a world ravaged by nuclear war, where survivors navigate the desolate wasteland and contend with mutated creatures, factions vying for power, and the lingering echoes of humanity's downfall. With its rich lore and morally ambiguous storytelling, the Fallout franchise has garnered a devoted following over the years, making the transition to the small screen a natural progression for its expansive universe.

Of course, a visually striking and immersive world is essential for any post-apocalyptic tale, and Fallout appears poised to deliver on that front. Drawing inspiration from the iconic imagery from the video game series, the production design promises to transport audiences to a hauntingly beautiful landscape scarred by the remnants of civilization and tinged with the eerie allure of a bygone era.

Furthermore, the series is helmed by a talented team of creatives, including showrunner Jonathan Nolan, known for his work on acclaimed series like Westworld, and executive producer Todd Howard, the visionary behind the Fallout video game franchise. With their combined expertise and passion for storytelling, Fallout has the potential to offer a fresh perspective on the beloved universe while staying true to its roots.
