The creators of the Fallout TV series on Amazon have now confirmed that Fallout New Vegas’ resident Mr House will indeed appear in season two in some capacity. Considering we already knew the show would be set in New Vegas and House appeared in the first season, we probably expected it, but hey, they said it and removed any doubts.

This excerpt comes from an interview showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet recently gave to the company Diversity, and the pair tease that House “will be involved” in season two. In what form? That is the question.

While Wagner did say that “many” of the show’s main characters “go to Vegas” and added, “Las Vegas in the world of Fallout is Robert House’s town,” that’s about all the details we got. Naturally, there have been debates about what House’s appearance might mean in terms of the canon ending in New Vegas.

Before we get too deep into the realm of speculation, however, it’s worth noting that both Bethesda and the show’s creators have been steadfast in their insistence that the things that happen in the show have no bearing on the canon of Obsidian’s previous Fallout installment, so it would be weird to see how they openly change their stance towards House.

That’s probably why most of it fans on the Fallout subreddit their thoughts seem to have gone to the same place as mine after the reveal – we’ll probably get more pre-war flashbacks showing how exactly the world got into this mess in the first place.

Considering that much of House’s history revolves around the measures he took to turn pre-war Vegas, or at least The Strip, into something he could resurrect after the bombs dropped, it will certainly be compelling to see him implement all of his plans – from hiding a bunker full of security under Fort Hill, to shooting down warheads while bombs were falling, and even ordering a certain platinum chip.

On the other hand, there’s a mighty possibility that his influence on the post-war Mojave that the show’s main characters are heading towards will have to be confirmed in some way, so who knows what that could mean. Maybe we’ll just fire a single shot at Lucky 38 and have to see if he’s still kicking or if Yes Man just failed to change the screensaver in the setup.

Fopr more House, be sure to read our interview with the New Vegas fan responsible for raising money to become the main RobCo in the world of real Vegas.
