Amazon’s Fallout Series Gets Exciting Season 2 Update Ahead of Premiere

An exciting update has been revealed on the future of the Fallout series days ahead of the show’s premiere.

It would seem the odds have increased for Fallout getting a second season, although a renewal hasn’t been announced. Just days ahead of its Season 1 premiere, Amazon’s live-action Fallout adaptation appears to be on track for a second season thanks to a $25 million tax credit from the city of California.

According to Deadline’s report, Fallout is set to receive a $25 million tax credit for filming its potential second season in California. This funding is “conditional,” meaning it’s not a guaranteed renewal. Some shows previously approved for the California tax credit have had to withdraw from the program later on. Nonetheless, the substantial financial support significantly increases the likelihood of a Fallout Season 2, especially considering the interest expressed by those involved in the show’s production.

While Amazon has yet to officially announce the renewal of the Prime Video series, recent hints from executive producers Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan strongly suggest that the $25 million tax credit is paving the way for a continuation. The LA-based post-apocalyptic drama has secured one of the largest allocations ever from the tax credit program for a relocating series, joining a dozen shows that have been awarded a total of $152 million in incentives.

There’s Plenty of Material to Explore in Potential Future Seasons

In a recent interview with Total Film, Fallout co-writer and co-showrunner Graham Wagner discussed the potential for a second season, stating, “We have documents and documents of material that we’re eager to delve into if successful. Our fingers are crossed that we’ll get the opportunity to explore all of that. If budget constraints are a major obstacle, the California tax credit could be a significant help.”

Premiering on April 11, Fallout based on the best-selling video game franchise is a significant acquisition for the California Film Commission (CFC) and a strategic move for Amazon Prime Video. Since the Golden State’s tax incentive program was revamped in 2014 to compete with lucrative incentives offered by states like Georgia and New York, as well as provinces like British Columbia and Quebec in Canada, attracting series from other jurisdictions has been a major success for the program.

California Governor Gavin Newsom commented, “From bringing Fallout home to keeping classics in California, this program has helped our iconic, world-leading entertainment sector create tens of thousands of good jobs for Californians and generate billions of dollars for communities across the state over the past 15 years.”

Set to debut on Prime Video on April 11, Fallout is a live-action adaptation of the video game series. It was developed for the small screen by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the team behind HBO’s Westworld.

Fallout will premiere on Amazon Prime on April 11th 2024.
