The Fallout TV series is based on Bethesda’s popular game Fallout, developed by Amazon MGM Studios. However, the show follows its own story rather than following the story of one of the games. This means that the TV series has its own set of characters and their interesting story to tell.

This was emphasized by Director Todd Howard in the interview. Howard said, “There’s so many great characters that have a lot of stories left to tell”. The team behind the series is fully committed to delivering fresh narratives and experiences that showcase the harsh post-apocalyptic world.

Howard expressed that the show’s creators, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have many great ideas about the future of the series. Fallout Season 2 is most likely going to follow the new set of characters and delve even deeper into their stories. His exact words were: 

The one thing about TV that Jonah told me from day one is it’s about finding the characters. And I think it’s really awesome how these characters have resonated with the audience. And so I think there’s still stories to tell there. There’s so many great characters — I love Norm and Chet, I love the two of them in every scene. And obviously we have the Ghoul and Lucy and Maximus.

This shows that the TV series is trying to show new exciting stories while maintaining the quality of the characters and expanding the universe of Fallout.
