The first ever live action Alien TV series will enter production next year. Today it's been confirmed that showrunner Noah Hawley's scripts have been handed into executives at FX and the show is on track to begin filming in 2023!

Details on the show have been scarce lately, but earlier in the year we did receive some character details and a few major plot details - suggesting the show would focus heavily on metahuman technologies, the blending of Synthetic and Human consciousness and immortality. We also learned that the show will introduce us to a new antagonistic corporate entity known as the Prodigy Corporation.

The Alien TV series will also write its own history within the Alien canonical timeline - ignoring the franchise's films entirely. 

Fans will be pleased to know that VFX company Weta will be once again lending their expertise to the series for its visual effects work.

As we approach 2023, expect more updates on the untitled Alien TV series!

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.

Like an alternate time-line? It might work.

No, not an alternate timeline. It says it set within the film's timeline but not directly following the events in the film meaning Its an interquel - a side story, the films are still canon but they are out of focus out of mine

Only TIME will tell....

We have had a LOT cleared up, it would appear the Time-Line could be Similar to Prometheus.  It seems the Xenomorphs will be Unleashed on Earth, and even maybe Discovered on Earth?

This to me looks like it will GIVE us a Alternative Story, it surely Can-Not go and Connect with the Alien Franchise...not without their being either Continuity Problems or they come with the COVER-UP/CONSPIRACY ANGLE.

Hopefully Alien Day 2023 will Yield more Results... as this Years was a Massive Disappointment.... however the COVID Pandemic and Disney Take Over had likely altered the Path of the Franchise.... as HAD neither of these Happened, maybe we would have had another ALIEN movie in 2022.
