[Spoilers] More Hermit and Wendy Character Details From FX & Noah Hawley’s Alien Series!

In early November The Illuminerdi scooped the first character details from Noah Hawley’s upcoming Alien series. Alien vs. Predator Galaxy was able to corroborate, confirm and correct that initial report. Illuminerdi has now posted some additional details about those same characters, which again we can confirm are legitimate. Beware spoilers.

It looks like Alien is looking to cast a man in between 20 and 30 for the role of J.D. Hermit. J.D. Hermit, known as Hermit, is a human Medic for Prodigy Tactical Response, the private military of Prodigy Corporation. Hermit is described as a young man with an anxious temperament, but a good heart. Hermit is struggling to find his way believing himself to be curse as he mourns the loss of his family.

Hermit was particularly close with his 10 year old sister Marcy, who he was told died of cancer. Hermit is driven to help others, but he feels untethered and isolated in his grief. However, in the face of great danger Hermit proves that people have severely underestimated him and that he in fact has the heart of a hero.

Alien is also looking to cast a woman in her mid 20s to mid 30s to play Wendy. Wendy is described as tall, athletic, and androgynous. Wendy is not a human instead she is a “Hybrid”, a superhuman who is essentially perfect. However, all is not as it appears with Wendy as she in fact has the mind of Hermit’s 10 year old sister Marcy. She learns how to live and control this new body under the tutelage of “Synth” scientist Kirsh and human scientist Dame Sylvia.

Wendy eventually becomes a leader to the hybrids and creates the path for a new era of enhanced beings. Wendy, once she reaches full development, will have super strength, speed, and agility combined with the limitless courage of a young mind. Wendy is not only a new being, but a tool of monumental value to the world.

 [Spoilers] More Hermit and Wendy Character Details From FX & Noah Hawley's Alien Series!

When we heard from Noah Hawley earlier this month, he talked about how the series will explore the idea of competing corporations attempting to seek “immortality” in differing ways.

In the movies, we have this Weyland-Yutani Corporation, which is clearly also developing artificial intelligence—but what if there are other companies trying to look at immortality in a different way, with cyborg enhancements or transhuman downloads? Which of those technologies is going to win?

We now know that the name of the company responsible for investigating the concepts of transhuman downloads is the Prodigy Corporation, who have their own PMC units. Thanks to Mr_H for the news!

    People love Alien Resurrection.

    People loooooove it

    I'm going to give Noah the benefit of the doubt. He wrote some wonderfully, quirky, eccentric and interesting characters and story arcs in Fargo.

    If he can do the same here then I'll be keen.

    Do we really want quirky and eccentric characters in an Alien series though?

    Twin Aliens ?

    plot stuff reminds me somewhat of Alien Resurrection


    Wendy, "the hybrid" and her handlers feels a bit Ripley 8.... (but a Synthetic version of it)

    Are we gonna get a Newborn stand-in?

    I’m a massive fan of Aliens - Especially the comics.

    The more I read about this TV series, the more I think it would be a great comic - and an awful TV show.

    Am I curious to see it? Yes. Excited? Not at all. Itd direction sounds awful.

    Only terror Alien is boring. Aliens World is more interesting   in Prometheus/Covenant than Alien/Aliens.

    Mixted two worlds  is complicaded but is natural after Prometheus. Alien is terror , is masterpiece, is perfect. Today is impossible. Alien today  is more than terror but this monster is perfect in 79 and  little original for 2022. Alien 4, Covenant killed it.

    Reinvention  and  returns origin is the exam for Noah. But i love your declarations. I Love Prometheus and Scott vision.

    This has Ridley’s fingerprints all over it  :(

    These fingerprints are even better in the right hands  ;)

    I think post-Alien: Covenant is a given. I'm just hoping it is, at minimum, post-Alien (and, preferably, post-Alien 3, given what we know of it).

    I don't foresee any explicit connections/references to David's work being explored here, but I also most certainly wouldn't be opposed to that being the case.

    Hi, i don't mind all this AI stuff at all. In fact i love " Raised by wolves". Yet it is the Alien franchise. So yeah, please put more emhapsys on that. I was thinking about this synopsys. Maybe it will be post Covenant. W-Y recieved David's message about the alien. Then there are some in between coroporation shenanigans. Somebody is going to try to use Davids knowladge to enhance this super-humans. Possibly to, again achive immortality. But then are good character even that his sister is in the body of Wendy he will stand on the side of humans and somehow save them. It would somewhat fit in the place of the unmade 3rd Ridleys film. But who knows. We just have to wait. Actually im very hyped for whats to come.

    For real though – seeing Weyland-Yutani at the end of its time of prominence, as it is beginning to collapse and lose the grip that it once had, is something I would be genuinely interested in. Could very well be going in that direction, too, with other corporations like Prodigy getting prominent play here.

    Just leave the Wal-Mart gag on the cutting room floor, like Jeunet had the right mind to do in his preferred theatrical cut of the film.
  10. Nightmare Asylum
    Post-Alien 3 definitely makes the most sense for me, given the premise they're running with, though I guess there's some potential for them to try to slip this in between Alien and Aliens (though I certainly don't want that to be the case).
  11. Immortan Jonesy
    I have a creeping suspicion that it'll be closest to the Covenant Alien, although not identical.

    This is based on nothing other than hunches and watching trends though.

    Well, I hope it's not due to cutting costs like when they recycled the Resurrection suits for AVP, but with Covenant designs. Although honestly, not even for creative reasons would make sense as long as it's post ALIEN (1979).

    I wouldn't be disappointed by a Stompy-like design though. Better than fleshy raptors.  :P

    I just hope they go back to the Giger design once and for all. No more Fleshingmorphs please! 😭

    The lack of biomechanics works in some instances for me – I don't mind Resurrection's cloned Aliens within the context of that film and Covenant's spindly not-quite-finished Aliens (and Neomorphs) are good, and Prometheus has some cool critters as well.

    But yeah. I do very much want to see the proper biomechanical Alien again here. Especially since this series is almost certainly going to be set after the original film (and since it seems to be exploring human-made biomechanics as well, which should be more crude and stand in contrast to the Alien's unique perfection in that regard).

    Yes! back to basics! I think cyberpunk tropes might fit.  8)

    if this is indeed post-Alien3 then i'm fully expecting a return to biomech aesthetics.

    Post Alien 3? I never thought about that. Always imagine what would be after Alien / Aliens. Even post-Covenant:laugh:
  12. [cancerblack]
    I imagine it'll be ambiguously, not explicitly post-3.

    Coz if it's not... gross.

    But jumping back, lanky skeletor Aliens (like covvie) seem to be the hip thing, and not everyone is as married to Gigers "true" biomech as us grognards.

    @NA

    I guess it's just that, this particular take on that premise (assuming you're correct) isn't something I'm particularly interested in.

    At all.

    However as I've said, it will really come down to how the monster stuff looks/feels. If they nail that aspect and I'm given enough of it, I'll tolerate the rest regardless of what it does.

    Don't worry, the upcoming Blade Runner series will be much closer to Alien.

    That's bullshit but I believe it.


    a synth-human-alien hybrid (not entirely unlike Eloise)

    Was also my first thought, and I can't say that it's a positive association (lacking any further context).
  15. skhellter
    i bet 3 fiddy that'll be the case.

    Wendy will probably be a synth-human-alien hybrid (not entirely unlike Eloise)

    also bet 3 fiddy that she'll communicate with the Aliens a la David.  ;D
  16. Nightmare Asylum
    This is sounding like a great Blade Runner series.

    My thoughts entirely.

    Definitely gives that impression up front (maybe Ridley was confused and that's why he mentioned an in-development Blade Runner series out of nowhere a month or so ago? :D)... but I still feel like getting the capital-A Alien's biomechanics into this mix (or using it as a springboard to propel these developments up front) is going to be the running objective here, as the conflict ramps up to the Alien problem that builds out of this doomed-to-fail experiment.

    A peak behind the curtain at something akin to Weyland-Yutani's ill-fated weapons division plans, in a sense.
  17. Immortan Jonesy
    I wonder if there is any connection between these superhumans and the Alien. Not necessarily genetic as in the case of Ripley 8, of course, and since it takes place on Earth, I knew there would be cyberpunk elements, which personally doesn't bother me at all. I'm dying to see that setting and to learn in which ALIEN timeline this series takes place.
