Amazon announced today that Fallout has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes just eight days after the sci-fi drama made its much-anticipated debut on Prime Video. Since its premiere, the show has become one of the streamer's top three most-watched titles ever.

"Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show. The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations, while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park!," said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. "We'd like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners. We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of Fallout."

Based on the best-selling global video game franchise, Fallout is set 200 years after the apocalypse, following the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters as they return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind. There they discover a complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them. Critics and viewers have praised the show for its tongue-in-cheek gore, twisted, post-apocalyptic setting, and the portrayal of its signature characters.
