The Fallout TV show ran for five seasons

June 9, 2024 by No Comments

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fallout showrunner Graham Wagner talked about the future of the show and the success of the first season. On April 9, the Fallout TV series premiered on Amazon Prime Video to overwhelmingly positive reception, bringing one of the most faithfully recreated live-action adaptations ever made, on par with HBO’s The Last of Us.

Since the first season dropped, the second has been greenlit and production has begun, but fans are now wondering how far the series will go. There’s a wealth of source material available, and Fallout is one of those franchises that never needs to end, which is why the show’s creators have joked about putting in ‘hundreds’ of seasons.

A temperamental industry

In the interview With The Hollywood ReporterShowrunner Graham Wagner responded to the question of how many seasons would be ‘ideal’ for Fallout:

We talk about a billion seasons as a jokey way to avoid the question because we can’t control it. So our hope is to end each season with a semi-satisfying, semi-open-ended kind of texture. Look, we talked about three seasons and we talked about five seasons. Because of the show’s success, five suddenly became a bit more attractive. But industry is a matter of temperament and we have to go into every season thinking, “This is our last.”

Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dvoret, another showrunner, spoke at length about filming the first season and how the process will be different going into the second season of the show. The decision to relocate to Southern California for filming has been described as a strategic one, as some weather-related issues with filming in New York almost ruined more than a few scenes.

Robertson-Dvoret explained that there’s already plenty of meat on the bones for the show’s second season:

There were so many things we wanted to do in Season 1 that we felt like we were so far away from, “That would be awesome, let’s do it in Season 2,” and it’s honestly really exciting and we’re really grateful to have the opportunity to bring out all the things that didn’t quite fit in Season 1. We are happy to do them now.

The second season of Fallout doesn’t have a release date yet, but we expect it to drop in late 2025 or early 2026.
