After a year of silence, Amazon is opening the vault on some details for the upcoming Fallout TV series. In a new report, we’ve learned that the series based on the post-apocalyptic RPG is set to begin production later this year.
Deadline reported the production time and revealed Jonathan Nolan is set to direct the series premiere. Nolan is the co-creator of HBO’s Westworld, which shares some similar dystopian themes with the world of Fallout.
Additionally, Captain Marvel Writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Portlandia and Silicon Valley’s Graham Wagner will serve as the series showrunners. There is still no word on the cast or the plot for the Fallout show.
