Disney Investor Day 2020: Fargo creator Noah Hawley bringing us an Aliens series

December 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, Disney do not waste time, do they?

At the Disney Investor Day 2020 it was revealed that Aliens fans have a big treat in store.

Ever since the franchise was taken over by Disney, many feared that the Aliens franchise was dead in the water as it was too adult for the House of Mouse but it seems that isn’t the case at all as FX Boss John Landgraf confirmed that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley is developing an Alien series also acting as executive producer along with Ridley Scott.

The show will be the first in the franchise set on earth (well, not counting the AvP movies) and will blend the horror of Scott’s original Alien along with the action of James Cameron’s Aliens. That’s a big promise.

With it being on FX we can be confident that it should be pretty adult-orientated, which this franchise should be.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
