The upcoming Alien TV series by Noah Hawley is set to get cameras rolling by September this year! Recently the Alien series hired production designer Andy Nicholson and some revealing (spoiler-ish) concept art leaked online for Alien Day. Casting announcements should start to roll out soon.

According to the latest Production Weekly listing, the series will begin filming September 2023. Prior to this update, filming was expected to kick off this past March.

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.

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.

That looks like a Resurrection-style xenomorph

Starting to get a little bit exited I have to admit

Indeed that is from Alien-Resurrection.

Regarding the Xenomorphs in the TV Series, it appears they could be closer to those from AVP (Antarctic Pyramid), personally i am NOT looking too much forwards to the TV Series due to its Time-Line a 2097-2102 ish Time-Line is a Mistake..... a 2180-2200 would NOT have been a Issue.

To me its just a Lazy attempt by Noah to Re-Write what Alien Covenant had set out to do.
