At the Television Critics Association press tour, FX chairman of content and productions John Landgraf discussed the Alien series, from writer/producer Noah Hawley (Fargo). The show was originally announced in December 2020.
“That’s gearing up for production this year after [Hawley] completes production on the fifth season of Fargo,” Landgraf said.
At the TCA in 2021, Landgraf said that the series will be “grounded” and “very conscious” of the existing cinematic universe, “and while it has some flexibility, the aesthetic that was established by Ridley Scott and continued by James Cameron is a part of that universe.” By August last year, Hawley had turned in all the scripts for the limited series spin on the sci-fi franchise. But, aside from the series hewing closer to the first original films, that’s all Landgraf wanted to share.
