Alien TV series: Noah Hawley meets production designer this weekend

ONE new Alien movie (possibly with the title Alien: Romulus) will begin filming in February with Fede Alvarez (Do not breathe) at the helm – and it Alien TV series that Fargo series creator Noah Hawley has developed for FX and the Hulu streaming service (as first announced in December 2020) will not be far behind. We heard back in August to Alien The TV series was expected to start filming this year, and FX chief John Landgraf has now confirmed that the start of production is not far off.

Speaking at a Television Critics Association event, Landgraf (with thanks to Deadline for the transcript), “Noah is currently in production on the fifth season of Fargo but he is in active pre-production on Alien, he has written screenplays. I think he’s meeting with his production designer in Austin this weekend and is gearing up for production this year after he finishes the fifth season of Fargo.

Landgraf previously revealed the time frame Alien TV show is inserted. He told Deadline, “There are some big surprises in store for the audience. Alien takes place before Ripley. It is the first story that takes place in Alien franchise on the ground. So it takes place on our planet. Right near the end of this century, we’re in – so 70 years from now. Ripley will not be a part of it or any of the other characters Alien other than the foreigner himself.

A late 2090s setting would place the events of this show between the events of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

Landgraf has also said, “That Alien The cinematic universe is a world that is kind of dominated by large corporate entities, and Weylan-Yutani has been an important part of the movies. There are references to that company in this show. But it actually takes place in another company’s territory that Noah invented.

That Alien The TV series is being produced by Ridley Scott through his Scott Free banner. Landgraf has said that the show might premiere sometime this year.

I’m very curious to see how this show turns out. Are you interested in Alien TV series, and are you happy to hear that it is nearing the start of production? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
