We have yet more images from the much-awaited Fallout: The Series. The new images highlight the interior of what we now know as Vault 32.
The images were first shared on the Fallout subreddit, but then deleted. The images were later reshared by Twitter user Shamanomenon, but, again, removed due to a copyright violation.

The set designers of Fallout: The Series have done a masterful job at creating Vault 32. The interior shots of the vault are remarkably similar to what can be seen in the video game series.
The impressive amount of detail of Vault 32 is not all that surprising since Bethesda Game Studio's Todd Howard and James Altman from Bethesda Softworks serve as executive producers of the TV series.
We have had a steady stream of leaked images in recent weeks as the series has just recently started filming. Previously leaked photos were those of the Vault-Tec power armor and Super-Duper Mart.
There are 122 known vaults in the Fallout franchise.
The Vaults in the Fallout series serve as a shelter to protect a select population of the United States following the outbreak of a nuclear war or plague. The shelters were created by the Vault-Tec Corporation, under contract from the US government, in hopes of repopulating the country after a catastrophe.
The true purpose of the vaults is to serve as a base for human experimentation. Only 17 of the 122 vaults operate as normal shelters, in order to gather data for comparison with the results from other locations.
There is very little to go on as far as details go for Vault 32. It may be the jump-off point for the series similar to the video games from Bethesda.
Fans are expecting Vault 32 to be a central element of the plot, in line with the lore of the video games. Based on the amount of detail that was put into making the set, we will almost certainly see a good number of scenes from inside Vault 32.
Amazon Prime has invested a ludicrous amount of money in the production of its TV series. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have reportedly struck a deal to join the Fallout: The Series for $150 million over five years as co-showrunners.
The pair previously worked on the highly successful HBO series Westworld and will remain executive producers of the show as a part of the deal with Amazon. Nolan is set to direct the first episode of Fallout: The Series.
In a joint statement, Nolan and Joy dubbed the series as "one of the greatest game series of all time". The statement also describes the amount of work they have put into the project and their partnership with Bethesda.
Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios.
We do not have an idea of the total cost of the series, but based on Amazon Prime's recent spending, it should be well north of $200 million per season. Just for a comparison, The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, which is also from Amazon Prime, has reportedly spent over $450 million on the project’s first season alone.
Fallout: The Series does not have a trailer or a release date yet. The series will stream on Amazon Prime Video.
