The world of Fallout is one where Americans envisioned the future in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. The magic of the Fallout world is the harshness of the wasteland set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It is serious and harsh in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humour and B-movie-nuclear fantasies.
The television series is set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles and features an original story considered canon to the series.
The cast includes Walter Goggins, Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Micheal Emerson, and Frances Turner, and is produced by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Todd Howard and James Altman are producers for Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks respectively.
