How to Watch Fallout Online

Fallout is available to watch online exclusively on Prime Video, and the only way to stream the video game-inspired series is with a membership to Amazon Prime or its standalone streaming service.

Prime Video is included free with Amazon Prime membership, which costs $15.99 per month or $139 annually. (Otherwise, the streaming-only service is $8.99 per month.) Both options offer 30-day trials, so new subscribers can watch Fallout for free during that period.

Fallout Cast, Plot, Episode Release Schedule

First released in 1997 and now owned by Bethesda Game Studios, Fallout is a role-playing game that takes place in the post-apocalyptic United States during the 21st to 23rd centuries following a nuclear war.

Amazon Studios’ TV series follows Fallout‘s retrofuturistic environment and includes elements from the game but offers completely original characters based on the protagonist, the Vault Dweller; and the “ghouls,” or people who survived the atomic bombs but were affected by radiation.

Purnell stars as Lucy McLean, a dweller of Vault 33 who ventures to above ground to the Wasteland in search of her kidnapped father, Hank McLean (Kyle MacLachlan), the overseer of her vault. Goggins is the Ghoul, an antihero of sorts who crosses paths with Lucy. Aaron Clifton Moteh is Maximus, who was orphaned by the atomic war and is now a soldier of the Brotherhood of Steel, one of the factions that arose after the war.

Now renewed for season two (which will be filmed in California), Fallout season one spans eight episodes, all streaming on Prime Video.
