The SAG-AFTRA strike has officially ended and production on a number of Hollywood projects have started to resume - Noah Hawley's Alien series for FX being one of them! Speaking recently to The Wrap, showrunner Noah Hawley explained that prior to the strike, the first hour of the show had been filmed but that most of the bulk of filming still needs to take place. He expressed that the show is aiming for a release sometime within the first half of 2025:
We’re all just waiting for the strike, and it will end. The plan right now is to go back in January and be shooting in February, and looks like shoot until July or so, which puts the air date somewhere in the in the first half of ’25. I was able to complete filming most of the first hour. That said, I wasn’t able to film anything with my star. So I still have the bulk of the show to film, and we have seven more hours to shoot. I certainly would have loved to get the show in front of people as quickly as possible.

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.
