Amazon has released the first images teasing what audiences can expect from the ‘Fallout’ TV adaptation which will be released on April 12, 2024.
The show is based on the video game series of the same name, and will feature familiar images that fans have come to expect from the game.
The series will feature characters played by actors Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, Kyle MacLachlan, Xelia Mendes-Jones, and Aaron Moten.
Amazon has released character descriptions and an overall show description.
Purnell plays Lucy. “Lucy is an optimistic Vault Dweller with an all-American can-do spirit. Her peaceful and idealistic nature is tested when people harm her loved ones.”
An image shows Lucy in a Vault suit venturing out into the Wasteland.
Moten plays Maximus. “A young soldier hides his tragic past as he serves in a militaristic faction called Brotherhood of Steel. He believes in the nobility of the Brotherhood’s mission to bring law and order to the Wasteland – and will do anything to further their goals.”
A picture of Moten shows him in Brotherhood of Steel garm and standing next to someone in a Power Armor, a suit that grants the wearer better protection and strength.
Another image shows five people in Power Armor walking out of some smoke.
A final image related to the Brotherhood of Steel shows an airship and several Vertibirds.
Goggins plays The Ghoul. “The Ghoul survives the wasteland as a Bounty Hunter. He is pragmatic, ruthless, and hides a mysterious past.”
Ghouls are a race of creatures that used to be humans but transformed into a feral and deformed state due to the radiation they have absorbed.
An image shows Goggins’s character wearing a hat.
Kyle MacLachlan plays Overseer Hank. “Hank is the Overseer of Vault 33 and Lucy’s father. He is eager to change the world for the better.”
The Vaults were a series of underground nuclear bunkers owned by the Vault-Tec Corporation.
The inhabitants of the Vaults were unknowingly experimented on, and there were a series of Vaults across what was America.
The official description of the series states “takes place in a future, post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Citizens must live in underground bunkers to protect themselves from radiation, mutants, and bandits after nuclear annihilation. The story begins in Vault 33, one such bunker that is a prominent setting in the video games.”
Todd Howard, Director of Bethesda Game Studios, told Vanity Fair that the show would be canon in the ‘Fallout’ universe, and coexist with storylines and lore already set up.
