A look at everything we know about the TV series Alien so far

Prepend to the content

The upcoming TV series called Alien will be invading Earth soon! The success of the Predator prequel movie Prey back in 2022 led Disney to develop more projects based on the Alien and Predator franchises. The next film in the Alien franchise will be Alien: Romulus (tentative title) in August 2024, before the TV series arrives.

The next Alien movie will be released in between the first and second original films. However, director and writer Noah Hawley’s Alien TV series will bring the Xenomorph home. This idea was almost the basis for Alien 3, and the two Alien vs. movies explored it as well. As Ridley Scott’s divisive prequels began to discuss artificial intelligence, the goal was to honor the DNA of the Alien franchise in a different setting while continuing some of the commentaries. However, other than the fact that both projects are set in the same universe, there will be no connection between them.

Alien TV Series Release Date

There was a projected release date of 2024 for the current Alien TV show. However, due to strikes and script revisions, we are now expecting it to arrive in mid-2025.

  • Timothy Olyphant as Timothy Olyphant (1 episode)
  • Essie Davis as Dame Silvia (1 episode)
  • Alex Lawther as CJ (1 episode)
  • Sydney Chandler as Wendy (1 episode)

  • Kit Young as Tootles (1 episode)

Alien TV Series Storyline

Despite the lack of plot details, reports about leaked character details have highlighted some interesting aspects of the story. In addition to exploring the synths of the Alien universe in-depth, it seems the show will also tackle the issue of artificial intelligence and the blurring of lines between human and artificial. Due to the film’s setting in the not-so-distant future on Earth, it may be difficult to maintain continuity without breaking the AvP movies. Still, Hawley wants to “open up” the usual Alien premise: “I thought it would be interesting to open it up a bit so that the stakes of ‘What happens if you can’t contain it?’ are more immediate.”

This acclaimed filmmaker also explores the complex relationship between corporations and the working class, looking to maximize profits and control the population no matter what the cost. Although this has been a constant in the mainline Alien movies, it was not always at the forefront. Since television has the advantage of extra runtime, we can expect a deeper exploration of these themes.
