When and Where Does The Fallout TV Show Take Place?

The Fallout TV show is everything everyone is speaking about at the moment but if you’re new to the series, then you have likely started the show not knowing when and where it takes place. The good news is that you don’t actually need to know anything about the video game series to enjoy the Fallout show on Prime but it does help a little.

Even if you have played all the video games, it might be difficult to understand when the show takes place in the overall Fallout timeline. We have you covered. Here’s a guide on the Fallout TV show on Prime, when it takes place and how it is linked to the video game series.

Fallout TV Show on Prime – When Does it Take Place?

The Fallout TV show is canonically the latest adaptation in the series. It takes place after the events of all previous video games and spin-offs. This means it takes place 11 years after Fallout 4, the latest game in the series.

The Fallout TV show also takes place over 200 years after the bombs dropped originally on 23 October 2077. The show opens up on that day and fast forwards to the year 2296 to tell the events of the wasteland in that era. The correct timeline for Fallout is now the following:

  • Bombs Drop – 2077
  • Fallout 76 – 2102
  • Fallout 1 – 2161
  • Fallout Tactics – 2197
  • Fallout 2 – 2241
  • Fallout 3 – 2277
  • Fallout: New Vegas – 2281
  • Fallout 4 – 2287
  • Fallout TV Show – 2296

Fallout TV Show on Prime – Where Does it Take Place?

If you have played Fallout 4, you’ll recall that the game also opens up on D-Day. It tells the events of the day the bombs dropped. However, the game is set in a vastly different location compared to the TV show on Prime.

Fallout 4 is based in Boston Massachusetts and the state was just as badly hit as other locations in the United States when the bombs dropped. The Fallout TV show, on the other hand, takes place in Los Angeles, California.

The Fallout TV show marks the second time we have seen Los Angeles explored in the series. The original Fallout game was also based in Los Angeles followed by Fallout 2 in Northern California.

  • Fallout 76 – Appalachia
  • Fallout 1 – Los Angeles
  • Fallout Tactics – Midwest (outside Chicago)
  • Fallout 2 – Northern California
  • Fallout 3 – Washington DC
  • Fallout: New Vegas – Nevada
  • Fallout 4 – Boston
  • Fallout TV Show – Santa Monica, California

There’s a lot more going on in the Fallout TV show on Prime than just the year and location. The show ties into various overarching storylines from the video game series. However, I don’t want to spoil that for you.

The Fallout TV show is now available on Prime. The show consists of 8 episodes. Bethesda has also announced a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrade coming to Fallout 4. So Fallout fever has officially kicked in.
