Filming on the upcoming FX series, “Alien” is due to resume in Bangkok, Thailand, after the holidays following a delay during the actor’s strike.

The brand new series is set not too far into our future, and it’s the first Alien story set on Earth. It blends both the timeless horror of the first “Alien” film with the non-stop action of the second and will take place before Ripley. 

The cast of “Alien” includes Sydney Chandler (Pistol), Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”), David Rysdahl (“Oppenheimer”), Alex Lawther (Star Wars: Andor), Samuel Blenkin (Black Mirror), Kit Young (Shadow And Bone), Essie Davis (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and Adarsh Gourav (The White Tiger).

With the actor’s strike now over, more cast for the upcoming series has been revealed by Variety, which includes Babou Ceesay (“Guerrilla,” “Damilola”), Jonathan Ajayi (“Wonder Woman 1984,” “Noughts and Crosses”), Erana James (“Uproar,” “The Wilds”), Lily Newmark (“Pin Cushion,” “Sex Education”), Diêm Camille (“Washington Black,” “Alex Rider 3”), and Adrian Edmondson (“War & Peace,” “A Spy Among Friends”).

No character details have been revealed about what roles these actors will be playing in the “Alien” series, which was initially announced at Disney’s Investor Day event in 2020 and will be coming to Disney’s streaming services, including Hulu, Star+, and Disney+ in 2025.

Previous “Alien” films are available to stream now on Hulu and on Disney+ in many countries, including the UK, Canada and Australia.
