It's been confirmed that the new "Alien" series will begin production sometime this year, with Landgraf stating back in January that Hawley has written the scripts and had apparently met with his production designer in Austin, TX. With a production that should incorporate a great deal of VFX and world-building, it's likely that the series won't actually premiere until 2024 at the earliest.

Set roughly 70 years from now, Hawley's "Alien" will explore what a future Earth would look like by the end of the 21st century. Using Scott's original "Alien" and James Cameron's "Aliens" as the framework, the story sounds like it will focus on two warring corporations both working to achieve new advancements in technology that eventually lead us down a dark path. In an interview with Esquire last year, Hawley had this to say about his version of a future Earth:

"In the movies, we have this Weyland-Yutani Corporation, which is clearly also developing artificial intelligence. But what if there are other companies trying to look at immortality in a different way, with cyborg enhancements or transhuman downloads? Which of those technologies is going to win?"

Landgraf has also confirmed that there will be references totheWeyland-Yutani corporation that appears in every "Alien" movie and that Hawley has invented another corporation that operates in a different territory. While the Xenomorph will absolutely be making an appearance, it sounds like Hawley is using this famous quote from Ripley in "Aliens" as a jumping-off point: "I don't know which species is worse. At least they don't f*** each other over for a percentage."
