An Alien TV series is currently in the works over at FX, and according to FX Chief John Landgraf, Ellen Ripley will not be making an appearance.

“Alien takes place before Ripley,” Landgraf recently told Deadline. “It’s the first story that takes place in the Alien franchise on Earth. So, it takes place on our planet. Right near the end of this century we’re in—so 70-odd years from now.”

The network boss also noted that there are some “big surprises” in store in the series, which was created by Noah Hawley (Fargo). “Noah has this incredible ability… to both find a way of being faithful, showing fidelity to an original creation like a Coen brothers’ movie, or in this case, Ridley Scott’s and James Cameron’s follow-up, Aliens, but also to bring something new to the table that represents extension and reinvention of a franchise at the same time,” Landgraf says.
