FALLOUT Creators Won't Commit To A Season 2 Release Date, But Moving As "Fast As Humanly Possible"

With the advent of streaming television, it feels like the wait between new seasons is longer than ever before. Whereas older shows used to release a new season almost every year, it seems like shows on streaming services take years between seasons.

Amazon was pretty quick to greenlight a second season of its Fallout show, announcing it just a week after the series debuted. Given the incredible success and popularity of the first season, its renewal really didn't come as much of a surprise.

But now the big question is how long we'll have to wait. Series executive producer previously acknowledged that he's "hopeful that we're not gonna have to wait quite that long," but in a more recent interview series showrunners Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner were asked about a possible release window. Unfortunately, their answer won't do much to quell the anticipation.

"The internet has an interesting habit of making non-binding statements binding, so I’m hesitant to give a date that will be taken out of context and live on Reddit for a year or so," Wagner explained, although he did give fans a glimmer of hope.

"But we are going as fast as we possibly can, and we’ve got a lot of heavy lifting from Season 1 already done," he continued. "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."

"And there are so many things we wanted to do in Season 1 where we were like, “That would be amazing, let’s do that in Season 2.” So it feels like we’re so much farther along and it’s honestly really exciting and we’re just really grateful to have the opportunity to bring to the screen all the things that didn’t quite fit in Season 1," Robertson-Dworet added. "We’re excited to get to now do those now."

Filming on Season 2 of Fallout is moving from New York to California which should also help with production as it means less gray skies. 

"That was tricky about New York. We were shooting partially in the summer and partially in the middle of winter. And some of those exteriors, the gray skies, they’re just not as beautiful," Robertson-Dworet explained. "There’s a reason filmmaking came to Southern California."

Another advantage to California is that it's already near a large desert. "We’re going to start scouting locations we literally can drive to from the writers’ room," Wagner pointed out.

The Fallout series is primarily set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, more than 200 years after the Great War of 2077. Following the apocalyptic nuclear war, the area is now an unforgiving wasteland. While the games are set all across the nation, the Fallout series should remain set around Los Angeles, although there's speculation we could venture into New Vegas, one of the iconic locations in the video game series.

Towards the end of the first season, we see Hank (Kyle MacLachlan) walking towards the outskirts of a cityscape that looks a lot like New Vegas from the beloved Fallout: New Vegas video game. The co-showrunners haven't confirmed New Vegas as a location in the second season, but it's strongly implied in the finale.
