It’s just been announced that FX is making a new Alien TV show for Disney Plus’ STAR internationally and Hulu in the United States. This news is huge, but they also added that the show is going to be made by Noah Hawley and Sir Ridley Scott.
This is something that’s been rumoured for quite some time, and we’re now getting official confirmation that it’s being made by Noah Hawley as the showrunner and Sir Ridley Scott will be producing.
I’ve been wondering what Disney was going to do with the Alien property now that they own it after the acquisition of 20th Century Fox. It’s a big franchise, and it looks like they’re turning it into a TV show, which is a brilliant idea!

This news is simply huge, and it’s something that I’ve been waiting for for so long, and it was also revealed that the show will take place on Earth, which is the first time it’s ever been done in the Alien universe.
Noah Hawley is one of the most talented people in Hollywood at the moment, and I can’t wait to see what he does with this show. He was the man behind the incredible TV show, Fargo, and this Alien series will really push him to new heights.
