The sci-fi action-comedy has been renewed for a second season by Prime Video. Based on the popular Bethesda Softworks franchise, the show hit hard with not only fans of the decades-old game, but with new fans as well. In all honesty, I don’t think I’ve ever actually played the game (but aware of it) however I instantly fell in love with the series which is currently at 94% fresh on the Tomatometer and an 88% audience score over at Rotten Tomatoes.

The series comes from Kilter Films and executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Nolan directed the first three episodes. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers, creators, and co-showrunners. According to the press release from Amazon Video, the series became a hit with its global audience in its first four days, ranking among the service’s top three most-watched titles ever.

“Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show. The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park!,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios in the press release. “We’d like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners. We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of Fallout.”

I don’t know about you, but after watching the first few episodes, I’m all in for a second season, I just hope that Amazon doesn’t “Netflix” this and keep it going ad nauseam after a natural finish. We all saw what happened to House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, and while Fallout is on Amazon Video, no one is safe from an overdose of that beloved buzz phrase “data-driven decision making”. That all being said, let’s see where this goes!
