And that is the series, which will be based on the classic film franchise that began in the ’70s, will take place somewhere you can be heard screaming: Earth.
“Expect a scary thrill ride set not too far in the future here on Earth,” Disney announced on its Twitter feed.
That’s all we’ve got to go on for the time being, but Noah Hawley has previously hinted at what his take on the series could include. Speaking earlier this year, he admitted he’d like to “expand” the “routine” of the movies.
“If you look at what Aliens tends to be, it’s usually a trapped story – trapped in a ship, trapped in a prison, etc. And because the Alien has this life cycle to it, where it goes from egg, to chestburster, to xenomorph, there becomes a certain routine to it,” he explained.
“I thought it would be interesting if you could expand. If you’re going to make something for television, you’ve got 10 hours let’s say. Even if you have a lot of action, like two hours, then you’re still going to have eight hours left. So what is the show about?”
We guess we’ll find out soon enough.
