Executive Producer Nolan about the upcoming Fallout Series: “It’s almost like we’re Fallout 5”.

According to executive producer Jonathan Nolan, the upcoming Fallout series from Amazon almost feels like Fallout 5.

In December, we finally got a glimpse of the much-anticipated Fallout series teaser, revealing the aftermath in Los Angeles, the Brotherhood of Steel, and more. The show, inspired by the popular game, follows a group emerging from shelters into a strange and violent post-apocalyptic world.

In an exclusive interview with Total Film, executive producer Jonathan Nolan described the project as being “almost like we’re creating Fallout 5.”

“From the first conversation with Todd [Howard, game director of Fallout 3 & 4, and an executive producer on the show] we were most excited about an original story. Fallout, in my career, is closest to the work we did in adapting Batman, where there’s so much storytelling in the Batman universe that there is no canonical version of it, so you’re free to invent your own.” Nolan shared with Total Film and was quoted by Gamesradar.com.

Nolan feels like he’s making the fifth Fallout but in a non-interactive form: “Each of the [Fallout] games is a discrete story – different city, distinct protagonist – within the same mythology. Our series sits in relation to the games as the games sit in relation to each other. It’s almost like we’re Fallout 5. I don’t want to sound presumptuous, but it’s just a non-interactive version of it, right?”

Besides Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy is also working and writing on the serie Fallout. Heading the show are Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (known for Captain Marvel). The cast includes Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan. Mark your calendars for the series premiere on April 12, 2024.
