Disney’s FX is currently filming a brand new “Alien” series in Thailand, which is set to be released on Hulu and Disney+ in 2025 and 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).

The show will also star Babou Ceesay (“Guerrilla,” “Damilola”), Jonathan Ajayi (“Wonder Woman 1984,” “Noughts and Crosses”), Erana James (“Uproar,” “The Wilds”), Lily Newmark (“Pin Cushion,” “Sex Education”), Moe Bar-El (“Tyrant”), Diêm Camille (“Washington Black,” “Alex Rider 3”), and Adrian Edmondson (“War & Peace,” “A Spy Among Friends”).

Deadline has reported that Sandra Yi Sencindiver has joined the cast of FX’s “Alien”, though no details on what character Moe will be playing have been revealed.  She will be appearing in multiple episodes, and she will play as a senior member of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. We hear there’s scope for the character to grow in future series.

Sandra Yi Sencindiver has previously starred in “Foundation” and multiple Danish series, including “The Bridge” and “The Killing”.

The show was originally announced back at the Disney Investor Day in 2020 and began filming last summer, but filming was shutdown when the actor’s and writer’s strike began.

The next instalment in the franchise, “Alien: Romulus,” is coming to cinemas this summer. The previous “Alien” films are available to stream now on Hulu and on Disney+ in many countries, including the UK, Canada, and Australia.
