Prime Video revealed that the entire first season of Fallout is now set to premiere this Wednesday, April 10 at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.

It was previously scheduled to arrive on the streamer this Thursday prior to the release date shift.

The announcement was made by Walton Goggins, who plays The Ghoul, as he invited fans to watch the series early in a social media video.

Per the official description, Fallout is described as "the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. 200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the incredibly complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them above."

Aside from Goggins, the cast also includes Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Kyle MacLachlan, Moises Arias, Johnny Pemberton, Dale Dickey, Michael Emerson, Leslie Uggams, and Zach Cherry.
