The live-action Fallout series is underway, and today, Prime Video has released 9 photos, giving viewers a better look at the world of post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Based on the video game franchise of the same name, fans will recognize elements such as the power armor suits, vault dwellers, a ghoul, and more. The series will premiere on Prime Video on April 12, 2024.

The photos feature Ella Purnell as Lucy, Aaron Moten as Maximus, Walton Goggins as The Ghoul, and Kyle MacLachlan as Overseer Hank.

Here are the character descriptions:

  • Ella Purnell plays “Lucy.” Lucy is an optimistic Vault Dweller with an all-American, can-do spirit. Her peaceful and idealistic nature is tested when people harm her loved ones.
  • Aaron Moten plays “Maximus.” A young soldier hides his tragic past as he serves in a militaristic faction called Brotherhood of Steel. He believes in the nobility of the Brotherhood’s mission to bring law and order to the Wasteland—and will do anything to further their goals.
  • Walton Goggins plays “The Ghoul.” The Ghoul survives the Wasteland as a bounty hunter. He is pragmatic, ruthless, and hides a mysterious past.
  • Kyle MacLachlan plays “Overseer Hank.” Hank is the Overseer of Vault 33 and Lucy’s father. He is eager to change the world for the better.

Here’s the synopsis from the show:

“Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. Two-hundred years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind—and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them.”
