Xenomorphs Rumored to Return in an Alien TV Show
A TV show based on the franchise may be under consideration at Fox.
The Alien franchise is in a weird place right now. With Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 dead in the water after making way for Ridley Scott's Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, it seems doubtful that the series will return to the big screen any time soon. However, if recent rumors are to be believed, fans may get to see the Xenomorphs again much sooner, this time on the small screen instead.
Back in April, a reliable source revealed to us that a series set within the “Alien universe” was being considered behind the scenes. I [article author Christopher Marc] was able to reaffirm the rumbling with another source located in another country that was able to support some of the basic info.
What they couldn’t connect on is where it could land be it FX or a streaming platform, Hulu and Netflix were ruled out at the time.
However, the rumbling resurfaced yesterday and that something could be announced “soon”. If they plan on announcing their intentions or are aiming to release it next year to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Alien franchise remains to be seen.
Again, we don’t have any concrete details about what it could be about and can only speculate what it might look like. It sounds like if it’s indeed in development it’s in the very very early stages.
As always, this is just a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt. Depending on how well the upcoming film The Predator does, it's entirely possible that Fox could green light another Alien film or perhaps an Alien vs Predator reboot.
Only time will tell as we get closer and closer to next year's Alien Day on April 26th. In the meantime, we will keep you up to date on all things horror right here on Dead Entertainment.
