FX Alien Series Has Entered Pre-Production, Filming Planned for This Year!

After a lengthy development period, Noah Hawley’s FX Alien series is finally gearing up for filming later this year! During a recent FX panel at the TCA (Television Critics Association) 2023 January Press tour, FX Chairman John Landgraf confirmed that the series has moved on from the development phase into active pre-production.

“Noah is currently in production on the fifth season of Fargo but he’s in active preproduction on Alien, he’s written scripts. I think he’s meeting with his production designer in Austin this weekend, gearing up for production this year after he completes the fifth season of Fargo.” (Deadline)

Composer Jeff Russo, who has previously collaborated with Hawley on both Fargo and Legion, also tweeted about the news, suggesting that perhaps he is scoring the series!

Russo has also scored a number of other series, including the sci-fi shows Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, and Altered Carbon.

The Alien series takes place on Earth during the latter part of this century, focusing on mega-corporations vying for dominance. Last September, Alien vs. Predator Galaxy exclusively showed some of the first concept art from the series.

With Fede Álvarez’s Alien film (working title Alien: Romulus) about to start shooting next month, and now with confirmation that Hawley’s Alien series has finally entered pre-production, it’s certainly an exciting time for us Alien fans! Thanks to Mike’s Monsters, Nightmare Asylum, and Gimitko for the news.

    Quote from: XENOMORPHOSIS on Jan 13, 2023, 05:27:25 AMIs it likely well see the Fede Alverez Alien Romulus film on Hulu in mid 2024 and perhaps the Noah Hawley Alien TV series premier on Hulu later that year perhaps, Wonder if they'll be any cross promotion between the two projects? But it's very likely there to be separate and stand alone.

    I think it would be pretty intriguing if they reference each other in one way or another. Maybe not in an overt kind way, but some subtle hints here and there would definitely be give these new additions some extra oomph.

    Scott's Blade Runner show for Amazon starts filming on July 17 and wraps in Spring 2024, if anyone is interested. Production time frame for the Alien show likely to be very similar.

     Its about time we had some ALIEN news.
    Not familiar with either of these gentleman but who knows?
    Not the ALIEN5 movie i was hoping for but i remain skeptical even though Sir Sir Ridley Scott is involved.

    Please no AI crap in the forefront of the script.

    And for godamn sake.

    No stupid robot creates  the ALIEN as the space jokey already made them centuries ago.

    The supposed 2023 release was something Landgraf said before production was delayed by a year, im assuming Collider is getting that from there.
    Fargo 5 wraps in April, Production Weekly says this series starts filming mid-2023, so the summer.
