Fallout TV Series Creators Were Told Fallout 5 Secrets to Avoid Similarities

The live-action Fallout TV series from producer Jonathan Nolan is set to air this April, promising another adventure in the wastelands of the established post-apocalyptic universe. However, Bethesda director Todd Howard was somewhat involved in its production too, going as far as giving the show’s creators secrets about the unannounced Fallout 5 game in order to avoid any potential similarities.

Speaking to Den of Geek in a recent interview, Jonathan Nolan and Todd Howard set the record straight about whether or not the Fallout TV series could be viewed as Fallout 5, following an earlier interview with Total Film where Nolan confused fans by saying the show is “almost like we’re Fallout 5.”

Showrunner Graham Wagner jokingly responded saying, “I think we made Fallout 6.” Nolan replied shortly after stating, “We know all about Fallout 5, we’re not telling anyone.”

Howard chipped in to offer some clarity about the confusion, saying, “Well, there were some things where I said, ‘Don’t do this because we are going to do that in Fallout 5′.” It seems like Howard wanted to avoid any similarities in the TV series to the upcoming Fallout 5 – a game that is still at least several years away as Bethesda is hard at work on The Elder Scrolls 6 and post-launch content for Starfield first.

The live-action Fallout TV series is set to premiere on Prime Video this April. Amazon recently released a new trailer that gave us a closer look at the show’s set pieces, characters, mutants and action.

The official description of the show reads:

“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. 200 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. From executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, and starring Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, Aaron Moten and more.”

Fallout arrives on Prime Video on 11 April.
