Noah Hawley's upcoming Alien TV series which is being developed for Hulu and FX will officially enter pre-production this year! Deadline reports the series is gearing up to start filming later this year:

“Noah is currently in production on the fifth season of Fargo but he’s in active preproduction on Alien, he’s written scripts,” said FX Boss John Landgraf providing an update at TCA on the long-in-the-works series.

“I think he’s meeting with his production designer in Austin this weekend, gearing up for production this year after he completes the fifth season of Fargo.”

Hawley's Alien TV series will take place before the Ellen Ripley storyline and established film quadrilogy. The setting for the show will also be set on Earth in the "near future" (roughly 70 years from now) rather than on board a spaceship or station. The series will also tackle Transhuman concepts and the blending of Human consciousness with Synthetic / robotic bodies. Of course, the show will include a variety of Aliens as well. Character details for the show were discovered online last year.

Concept artwork for the show leaked last year, which you can see here

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Keep the monster in the shadows, that leaves things up to the imagination. I didn't like the daylight-alien. Not very interested in the synthetic part of it, thanks to Alien Covenant... but they can make it interesting.

I have a bad feeling that the focus of this TV series will shift the focus from the xenomorphs being the antagonist to being mostly human antagonists (more than likely a cookie cutter rich hypermasculine white male villain) with bare minimum of xenomorphs appearing on screen


PraetorianMember4035 XPFeb-22-2023 9:17 AM

what's there to the imagination with the xenomorph? We already know what its body looks like by now


PraetorianMember4035 XPFeb-22-2023 9:54 AM

Also another thing why is everyone on the alien covenant bandwagon? It's not like its the first alien movie to show the xenomorph's entire body or did everyone forget Alien 3, Resurrection, and AVP?


PraetorianMember4035 XPFeb-22-2023 11:52 PM

crap your a bot!


NeomorphMember1656 XPMar-09-2023 3:50 AM

Xenotaris: It can have both, the movies have already had that. Burke working or WY, and some of them in Alien 3.


PraetorianMember4035 XPMar-09-2023 7:16 AM

can you improve on your english a little because I did not understand what you just said? How are Burke and Weyland-Yutani xenomorphs?


NeomorphMember1656 XPMar-09-2023 9:08 AM

Xenotaris: You said something about replacing the monsters with human antagonists. You can have both, in the form of A) Xeno-ish monsters and B) Human antagonists, corporate types, since they have been an important part in the franchise since day one.


PraetorianMember4035 XPMar-09-2023 10:23 AM

Well I know human villians are important part of the franchise but the BIG V is supposed to be the xenomorphs because they are the larger threat since humanity doesn't know well enough to leave these guys alone

Fingers crossed.
