Fresh details surrounding the upcoming Fallout TV series continue to emerge. Currently in production, the show is set to debut on Amazon Prime Video and marks the first adaptation of Bethesda’s iconic franchise. Specifics about the series remain limited — however, recent photo leaks hint at a promising atmosphere. Here, we share the images posted by Xbox News on Twitter and the entirety of our knowledge so far.
Fallout TV Series Leaked Photos
The images displayed above are freshly leaked snapshots from the show’s set. The colossal Vault-Tec logo decorated on the floor is particularly eye-catching. The series, existing within the same universe as the game series, will spin a distinct narrative. Todd Howard has previously confirmed that the series will be set within a more compact world and won’t interfere with the game’s narrative. While these leaked images don’t reveal much of the plot, we can spot cars that hark back to the 1950s.
But what exactly will the Fallout TV series plot entail? While we lack all the specifics, it’s established that the narrative will revolve around Vault 33. Vault 33 in the Fallout universe is one of the smallest settlements, with a population of around 39. Situated in San Diego, Vault 33 has three primary objectives:
- The foremost objective is to study human reactions when they are overpowered by artificial intelligence. In this scenario, humans are placed in the minority, with machines holding all significant positions.
- The secondary goal is to observe how machines function as a society, devoid of human interaction, after the demise of all human inhabitants.
- The final aim is to conserve pre-war technology and knowledge. Additionally, it seeks to guarantee the continued progression of technological advancements in the post-war era.
How closely the Fallout TV series will align with the storyline mentioned above is yet to be seen. Considering Amazon Prime’s inconsistent performance in the past, we have a few reservations.

Will Fallout TV Series Be Good?
The revered Fallout game series debuted in 1997 and is highly regarded as one of the best RPG game franchises. While Bethesda’s current focus is on Starfield, Fallout 5 remains an anticipated entry in their project list for the coming years. However, fans won’t need to wait years for their next Fallout story. The Fallout TV series, set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video, is currently in full-swing with its production.
So, do we anticipate the show to be respected? Absolutely. This alternate narrative around Vault 33 is penned by the capable hands of Jonathon Nolan and Lisa Joy. If these names don’t ring a bell, they’re the creative minds behind Westworld. They also boast writing credits on many iconic films, including Interstellar.
In short, the Fallout TV series is in competent hands. While it may not make as monumental an impact as The Last of Us, it could deliver an engaging experience for fans of post-apocalyptic tales, much like ourselves.
