Fallout TV Series: Will There Be a Season 2?

I’m sure you all had a great time exploring post-nuclear Los Angeles with Lucy and must have seen how the first season ended on a cliffhanger, setting up the Fallout series for a follow-up season. So, to address your eagerness, earlier today, Prime Video and the Fallout team officially confirmed that the Fallout series has been renewed for season 2 with a tweet on the X platform, which you can see below:

A couple of days before the Fallout Season 1 premiere, the California Film Commission (via THR) released a list of TV show projects that have been given the green light with the tax credits to start the shooting work in the Golden State.

Among them, Prime Video’s Fallout Season 2 by Kilter Films was mentioned with a budget of close to $154 Million. This confirmed that the production team will be moving from Utah (the primary shoot location for Season 1) to the West Coast for Season 2.

While the California Film Commission revealed that a follow-up season is likely, as we predicted, it turned out to be true as an official announcement came in from Prime Video.

Fallout Season 2 Expected Release Window

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet gave us a lot of updates recently. When asked about the release date of Fallout season 2, Wagner said they were hesitant about giving a potential release date but shared this:

But we are going as fast as we possibly can, and we’ve got a lot of heavy lifting from Season 1 already done. We have sets, assets, visual effects, that are already done. We are hitting the ground running this season. We’re going to be pedal to the metal to get season two out as fast as humanly possible.

So with the production set being ready, the crew is trying as fast as possible to complete the shooting works for season 2 of Fallout. This news was approved by their X handle with an okey dokey sign:

It took the production around a year to film the first season of Fallout. Technically, if the sets, assets, visual effects, etc are already ready, they can wrap up the production within a year or a year and a half at max. Therefore, Fallout season 2 is expected to be released around late 2025 or early 2026 as of now. This could change any time and stay tuned for more updates by bookmarking this page.

The makers have essentially stated that the Fallout TV series can be considered Fallout 5, as the story is canon and takes place after the four video game storylines. Now, talking about the story of Season 2, there has been no mention of the official plot till now.

The first season laid the groundwork for the upcoming seasons, and you can read our expected plot for the second season:

Based on the events in season 1, we speculate that the second season will also feature the trio of The Ghoul, Lucy, and Maximus, whose expanded storylines likely converge into one another. At the end of season 1, Lucy and the Ghoul made an unlikely team to head out to find “the makers.” Thus, they will be off on an adventure to New Vegas and explore the post-nuclear lands to find her makers, where Lucy’s dad moved to.

Moreover, Maximus seemed to climb up the ranks of the Brotherhood of Steel. Thus, he might take control of the Brotherhood of Steel and continue the search for his love interest, Lucy, in the next season. Moreover, we hope to meet the big heads of this world, especially Mr. Robert House, in the new location of New Vegas, which was teased in the finale.
