• Showrunners are hustling to deliver Fallout season 2 as fast as humanly possible, sets and effects are already in progress.
  • Creators feared main character Lucy McLean would be annoying due to her privilege, but Ella Purnell's performance eased those concerns.
  • The creative process for Fallout season one allowed for flexibility in storytelling, prioritizing personal and collective joy in decision-making.

If you can't wait for Fallout season 2, you'll be pleased to hear that you won't have too long to wait to get another dose of the Wasteland. Showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet have already progressed as far as getting the sets, assets, and visual effects completed, as they "put pedal to the metal" to try and get season 2 done "as fast as humanly possible".

The Prime Video adaptation of Bethesda's hit RPG video game series starring Ella Purnell as Lucy McLean ended with some shocking twists and, even though season 2 is still in development with no current release date, its creators were initially worried that Lucy McLean, a resident of the underground Vault 33 who ventures into the wasteland, would come off as irritating due to her privilege.

Things Could Have Gone Different For Fallout's Lucy

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet discussed that there were many avenues they wanted to go down with Fallout Season 2 and how they now had the chance to carry across ideas they initially had for season one into its next adventure. "We’re just really grateful to have the opportunity to bring to the screen all the things that didn’t quite fit in Season 1," said Robertson-Dworet.

Reluctant to give away too much about where they are in the development process or an estimated release date for season 2 because of how "the internet has an interesting habit of making non-binding statements binding", Dworet did, however, disclose that they have already a lot of heavy lifting done already from season one.

When asked about what the showrunners had learned about the creative process from Fallout season one, Dworet expressed how much of a comfort it was that Ella Purnell was such a good actor and was able to redirect Lucy's affluent background so that she didn't come across as irritating. "It was a huge relief to us to know that Ella is an incredible performer who makes sure that Lucy is not annoying." said Dworet. "We were very scared that our main character was a bit annoying because she’s a very privileged person and we kind of resent her for that."

Wagner also stated that they didn't feel pressure to go with certain scenes if they weren't happy with them and wanted to create their "own personal and collective joy govern decisions" as and when they felt it was needed. "We wrote things because we wanted to write them and shoot them, and if it ever felt like a scene was a drag, we were like, “Well, let’s not write it.”".
