Two New Television Series Set In The ALIEN Universe Are Reportedly In Development

It seems that following 2017's Alien: Covenant under-performing at the box office, the franchise has switched gears, with news of a pair of TV series in development, one produced by Ridley Scott...

HN Entertainment previously reported that an Alien TV series was in development, and today they've elaborated with a bit more information.

it seems that there are not one, but two series in the early stages, one of which will be produced for Hulu by Ridley Scott. Hulu, of course, had a huge genre hit with their J.J. Abrams/Stephen King-produced Castle Rock last Summer, while Scott is currently directing his first television project, the sci-fi series Raised by Wolves for TNT.

Says HN Entertainment:


Details are scarce at the moment but there might be multiple seasons that could tackle different corners/eras of the franchise, not unlike Noah Hawley’s series Fargo. In theory, I could see them possibly filling gaps in the franchise or crafting brand new stories to tell within the Alien universe. It still seems to be the very early days with these projects and I can’t exactly speak to what they’ll be about at the moment.

20th Century Fox teased big plans for the Alien franchise for 2019, using the slogan "Read. Play. Watch." Might the "Watch" portion of their advertising hint at an imminent new story on the small screen? Time will tell!

What say you? Are you excited, annoyed, or indifferent that the Alien franchise may continue on the small screen?
