A New Take on the Alien Franchise
Noah Hawley, the creator of Legion and Fargo, is bringing a new take on the Alien franchise to the small screen. The series is set to premiere on FX in 2025.
Ongoing Series, Not Limited
FX Chairman John Landgraf confirmed the 2025 release date during a meeting with members of the Television Critics Association. He also revealed that the show is designed to be an ongoing series, rather than a limited one.
Reimagining the Franchise
Landgraf described Hawley’s Alien as a “big reimagining” of the franchise. He said that Hawley has taken a unique approach to the material, deconstructing it to identify the key ingredients that make it so compelling.
Excitement for the Series
Landgraf expressed his enthusiasm for the series, praising the scripts, production, and cast. He said that he is excited to see how Hawley’s vision for Alien will come to life on screen.
The series is currently filming in Thailand, with Sydney Chandler, Timothy Olyphant, and Alex Lawther starring in lead roles.
