Alien: The Series

Omega Underground reports FX may be developing a TV series based on Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise.

...take the following as a rumor.

Back in April, a reliable source revealed to us that a series set within the “Alien universe” was being considered behind the scenes. I 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.



Stephen Amell debunked a new rumor suggesting Green Arrow will only be in prison for a meager three episodes next season.



Speaking of incarcerated leads on CW comic book adaptations, finally TV Line asked the cast of Riverdale who we can expect to see visit Archie during his own stint in prison. Short answer: everybody.
