Fallout Renewed for Season 2, Producers 'Can't Wait to Blow Up the World All Over Again'

Your Nerd Side with Fonseca:

Amazon will be venturing further into the wasteland after an incredible debut for the new Fallout series. Officially, the series has been renewed for a second season on Prime Video, and the show's producers couldn't be more ecstatic.

“Praise be to our insanely brilliant showrunners, Geneva [Robertson-Dworet] and Graham [Wagner], to our kick-ass cast, to Todd [Howard] and James [Altman] and all the legends at Bethesda, and to Jen [Salke], Vernon [Sanders] 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,” series producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy said of the renewal in a joint statement.

"Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show. 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,” Salke, the head of Amazon MGM Studios, added. “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 2 after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of Fallout.”

The Renewal Is Great, But Expected, News

It had been expected that the show would get a renewal. The news follows reports that measures were being taken to prepare for filming on a potential second season. After shooting its first season in New York and Utah, the show will move to California for Season 2. This is to take advantage of a $25 million tax credit, a welcome break considering the reported budget that's around $152 million.

The show's success apparently sealed the deal for a renewal. Fallout debuted as the No. 1 title on Prime Video, drawing very high viewership immediately upon arrival. Better yet, its reviews were quite strong, and the show currently sits with a score of 94% at Rotten Tomatoes.

The first season of Fallout is streaming in full on Prime Video.
