Disney has announced that a new Alien TV series is being developed by FX Networks. This series will be based on the film series of the same name and come from Noah Hawley, who also created Fargo and Legion. Hawley will be leading the series, but Ridley Scott is in talks to join as executive producer.
Earlier this year, Ridley Scott also revealed his idea on how to continue the Alien franchise.
