While Fede Alvarez's Alien: Romulus has been getting most of the attention lately, news on Noah Hawley's Alien TV series (reportedly titled Alien: Prodigy) has started to pick up! A fresh interview between show actress Sandra Yi Sencindiver and Variety have revealed new details about the show's plot - most interestingly revealing the series will explore the formation of the Weyland-Yutani corporation!

Executive produced by Scott, the is show set on Earth before “Prometheus” and will reportedly explore the formation of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation and the race to create android life. Sencindiver, a “huge ‘Alien’ fan,” who says she watched “Aliens” on repeat as a child, plays a crucial character named Yatani.

Sandra goes on to explain fans of the first two Alien films will especially appreciate the world-building storytelling Noah Hawley is providing with the series:

I think that especially the fans who love films No. 1 [Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’] and 2 [James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’] will be very pleased with the universe and the world-building in this reimagining. A lot of brilliant people, a lot of very interesting character actors [who are] very dedicated and, of course, Noah Hawley is just a brilliant storyteller.

While the Alien: Prodigy series and Alien: Romulus movie are not directly linked, they both heavily draw influence from the first two Alien films in the series. Alien: Prodigy acts as a prequel series while Alien: Romulus acts as an Alien sequel / Aliens prequel.

The Alien series is expected to wrap filming this summer with a projected release set for next year.

“In this reimagining”

It seems like the series will be its own thing, separate from the main films, which I’m fine with.

Crossing fingers it'll be good. The Alien franchise needs to be reignited again.

I'm more hyped for Alien: Romulus! This is the first time as Alien fan I am not looking forward for the Alien series, because if it turns out to retcon the entire franchise instead of a seperate on it's own series, I will skip this series, because they will ignore the Prometheus timeline.

I too am more excited for Romulus but I'm cautiously optimistic for the series. Anytime studios attempt to "reimagine" a franchise I get a little nervous. That being said, the Alien franchise contains so much untapped lore, I'm sure it will work out so long as they don't stray too far from what's already been established.

I'm fine with exploring it a little but I hope while they give some answers that they'll give us some questions too. We don't need to know everything in this franchise, hopefully the writers will understand this.

Indeed. The mystery is an important aspect in the franchise, the fear of the unknown. 

David being the creator of the xeno eggs was a very poor writing decision imo.
