The “Fallout” series, taken from the eponymous video game, will welcome an actress from “Yellowjackets”: Ella Purnell. The actress should hold the main role in the series of Amazon Prime Video.
The saga fallout soon in series
While we eagerly await the series The Lord of the Rings another big project is in the pipeline for Amazon Prime Video. It is a video game adaptation of fallout (1997) that takes place in a world in ruins after a nuclear war. The few survivors took refuge in underground anti-atomic shelters. One of these inhabitants (the player) is then tasked with going out to face the outside world to find a spare chip to filter the water in Vault 13.
After this first game, several sequels were born and Amazon intends to capitalize on this. By adapting the saga into a series, the streaming service finds itself with a solid base for a show of several seasons. In addition, we find in the production the creators of WestworldJonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
Ella Purnell in the cast
Casting side of fallout, we already knew that Walton Goggins should play a Ghoul. Consider a former human affected by radiation. Today we learn from Deadline that the main role could be held by Ella Purnell. His character would be called Jean and would be a young woman “who might be hiding a dangerous secret“.
revealed in Miss Peregrine and Peculiar Children (2016), and seen recently in Army of the Dead (2021), Ella Purnell will therefore remain on the small screen after having been one of the main faces of Yellowjackets. In this series, she plays teenage Jackie, the captain of the high school football team. With her group, she is one of the victims of a plane crash. The series unveils how some girls managed to survive for months in the wild. Each episode goes back and forth between the time of the crash and the present world.
Proposed by Showtime, and on Canal+ in France, the series obtained an unexpected success. The American channel, therefore, renewed the show for a season 2. Regarding fallout, the series does not yet have an air date. Production is still in its infancy and other names should soon be announced to the cast. Waiting for, Yellowjackets is still available on MyCanal.
