Hope we get a good amount of quality and quantity of content out of the Alien and BladeRunner TV shows.

In a further subversion, Scott will refocus Blade Runner to indulge his interest in aliens instead of AI.

Quote from: AVPGalaxyFor both Blade Runner and Alien, an outline has been written of events that will happen throughout the 8-10 hours of them. That suggests we'll be getting 8-10 episodes in the Alien FX series.

Scott Free's The Terror season 1 has 10 episodes.  :laugh:

Oh NO,   Scott needs to be pushed as far away as possible from this or it will be another failure for Alien.  Keep your nouse out Ridley.

Yawn. He's producing, deal with it. It's Noah Hawley's thing anyway, I doubt Scott will have that much creative input.

Scott's a great producer anyway, it'll only help.

Scott's is involved.....  it wont be.   Remeber,  in Scotts mind the Alien is dead,  nothing more can be done.  When in reality its his imagination and ability that has wained over the years.

I wouldn't be too worried. As we understand it, it's Noah's baby.

So 8 to 10 episodes then ? It's a good format for this IMO.

Mr. Clemens

I must admit I'm intrigued by the possibilities of a long-form story in this universe, beyond the 'we gotta get outta here' of the films. But I still maintain that the Earth setting robs the show of a great deal of what the Alien series is. Alien was initially greenlit because Star Wars was a success. It was the spaceship angle, and not so much the people-getting-killed angle, that got the film made. I turn to Alien because I want to spend a couple of hours in cold, dark space, or at least on a distant world.

Love to be proven wrong, though.

You can always watch the forthcoming Blade Runner series for outer space settings. :P
