War. War never changes.

The time is almost here to step out of the relative safety of the Vault and into the unknown Wasteland. Amazon Prime Video’s Fallout series has ticked all the right boxes for fans so far, with impressive power armor, big fights, and the series’ signature sense of humor all present in the show’s trailers. Now we’re just waiting for Fallout season one’s release date to finally arrive.

Set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, Amazon’s Fallout series will debut on April 10, 2024. According to reports, all eight episodes of season one will be available at that time, so be prepared to clear your schedule for a proper binge session. The first season follows Ella Purnell as Lucy, a young Vault Dweller who ventures out into the world for the first time. Her fellow leads are Walton Goggins as a Ghoul bounty hunter and Aaron Moten as Maximus, a squire of the Brotherhood of Steel.

Fallout is based on the long-running and much-loved video game series created by Black Isle Studios and Bethesda. It takes place in a world where a nuclear war devastated much of the planet 200 years earlier, with pockets of humanity surviving in Vaults deep underground. The surface world has become an irradiated mess filled with monsters, mutants, and evil robots, but everything is portrayed with an upbeat, irreverent sense of humor that serves as a send-up of the post-war optimism of the 1950s.

There is no other game series quite like it, so fans have high expectations for Fallout season one when it lands on April 10, 2024 on Amazon Prime Video.

Get ready to get out of your Vault and into the Fallout world - with our help, of course. Here is a guide to the Fallout timeline, how to play and watch all of Fallout, details on the Fallout cast, how the Fallout cast & crew really get the harsh humor we're looking for, as well as a Q&A with Fallout showrunners Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner.
