They should have talked up the William Gibson comic the whole time.

True that.  William Gibson is a sci-if icon in his own right so it would have been fully justified (even on behalf of Dark Horse) to talk about the project even if the Aliens series never factored in.

I'm curious about this new Alien 3 logo.  Is that something that was dug up from the archives from when the project was taking place or is it an all new thing?

Still collating.

Hopefully it's Netflix, just because I'd prefer to have all my streaming-related stuff in one place rather than have to subscribe to a bunch of different things for one or two shows each.

I agree that it will be better if it is Netflix.  In this case, I think that the more streaming services there will be, the worse it will be for the viewers.  If we end up with multiple streaming services that offer exclusive content, then it will be necessary to pay for all of them to see what you want to see, and soon the cost will rise to the level that cable was at to begin with.  In such a case, we might as well go back to cable TV with streaming services turned into streaming channels.

Netflix is out of the question, Disney are pulling all of their content off it due to their own service.

It will have a much more substantial chance to work if it gets the clunky retro/used future aesthetic right.

On one hand, it could work as a premium limited series. On the other hand, this would mean the end of Alien as a film franchise. I doubt it will return to the big screen after that.

Disney service will be PG & PG-13 material only. They could put it in Hulu, since Disney will end up with a majority stake and sell it internationally to the highest bidders or set it up at Netflix if it pays well. Literally every option but the new Disney service is on the table.

So a series is actually happening? Guess I’ve been out of the loop.
