If you're wondering what's coming next for the Alien franchise, rumor has that we could be seeing an Alien TV series coming to the small screen soon.

Omega Underground reports that they have multiple sources telling them that a TV series set within the Alien universe is being considered by 20th Century Fox. There are no details about what the series could be, but reportedly there's a dilemma about where the series would air, either on a network like FX, or through a streaming service. Right now it's said to be in the very early stages of development, so take all of this with a grain of salt until we start to hear more official confirmation.


Speculation about the show and the limits of its budget is already leaning towards a series about colonists or colonial marines within the Alien universe. The series could indeed feature Xenomorphs from time-to-time, but also open the storyline up to new extraterrestrial threats, or possibly tying the Alien series a little closer to its cousins in the Prometheus saga, with threats like alien viruses or advance races like The Engineers.

To be honest, I'm not sure what I should think about this. TV Series, might work with good budget and great casting story. Many TV Series are better than movies these days, because they can tell a story over a long time, but with an established property like Alien I'm not that sure. I'm not a fan of always relaunching a franchise but with Alien it might be time, because Prometheus and Covenant did not work. I wonder if we will see the next Ridley Scott Alien, but it looks like they don't want to make that anymore, which might be good.
