Netflix? Hulu? Oh, for God's sake. Put it on television, then get it out on blu-ray so I can see it too!  :D

On a side note, it's just "set in the Alien universe" right? Where have we heard that before? This may just turn into: "Better Hologram Saul".

Good, do it.

Stories in the universe which use the themes and aesthetic, do not require the creature itself.
(I'd argue that's in essence what Blade Runner is.)
/Prometheus with a superior writer and a reconcilable Pathogen.

This, and if it happens before the handover it might still be on Fox.

The buyout is expected to be complete in the first half of next year. If they hadn't announced any plans prior to the buyout announcement last December and now - we know it's not going to be on Fox.

Anything been touted at the moment is mere rumour or someone getting the wrong end of the stick.

I have to say, if a series did happen, at this point I think I'd be more excited for that than new films.

As always, depends on who's behind the scenes on the project.

Who's the showrunner?

Who's the writer(s)?

Who's the director(s)?

My dream is Alien in the anthology style of Black Mirror.

Who'd prefer an animated anthology over a live action one? I must say I probably would.

Nah. Would much rather they went live action.

The timetables for the deal closing have moved to the end of this year, but that wouldn’t affect the series as Disney were the ones interested in it...

Interesting concept. The whole monster of the week type episode would be great - different beast to doing a season long story arc whereas focus could be on more quirky, smaller (but still interesting) stories. Imagine an episode looking into say a day inside Weyland Yutain's acquisitions division ... or maybe a focus on a colonist family on Hadley during the initial breakout. They could maybe make some stories over 2 parts too.

I'd go for this.
