Prime Video's Fallout live-action series continues to make waves, surpassing Grey's Anatomy and the popular children's show Bluey in viewership. Not only has it attracted many new players to the games, but it has also earned the series two Gotham award nominations, solidifying its impact on the entertainment industry.

The 2024 Gotham TV Awards will be held on June 4, 2024, at Cipriani 25 in New York City. We're keeping our fingers crossed that our favourite wasteland series wins gold on the night as the Breakthrough Drama Series, and Walter Goggins's Outstanding Performance as Cooper Howard/The Ghoul is up for grabs.

Cooper Howard, portrayed by the talented Walter Goggins, arguably had the most captivating character arc in the first season. While we experienced the wastelands through the eyes of our protagonist, Lucy, and the endearing Brotherhood of Steel recruit Maximus, Cooper Howard provided the emotional backbone for the show, leaving a lasting impression on viewers.

With a story told between present-day and pre-war flashbacks, Cooper survived over 200 years as a ghoul of the wastelands, taking on any job for caps as long as it paid well. How Coop managed to survive for so long is unknown, but the real question unanswered in the flashbacks or present-day is the one asked by The Ghoul himself in the show's finale: "Where's my f****** family?"

As the show wraps, Cooper and Lucy head off together to get the answers to their family dilemmas, if the last scene is anything to go by, through a rather destroyed-looking New Vegas.

The Fallout show was fantastic and has already been renewed at Prime Video for a Season 2, despite fans complaining that the show had retconned the beloved Fallout New Vegas out of canon.

This turned out not to be the case, as Todd Howard himself cleared the matter up by commenting on the fate of fan-favourite Shady Sands: “All I can say is we’re threading it tighter there, but the bombs fall just after the events of New Vegas.” The director, Jonathan Nolan, had this to say: “Everyone who worked on Fallout, all the games, were so respectful and so careful to keep this consistent universe,”

So it is safe to say despite fan fury, the show is in safe hands.

Good luck to all the cast and crew at the Gotham Awards. Here's hoping you bring home the gold on the night.
