It might be interesting to see how the scumbag Company uses the Aliens on Earth. Bio-Weapons for warfare were mentioned in the original Alien, or could an even more chilling 'urban pacification' or 'ethnic cleansing' role be considered? It might mean certain Earth regions being deliberately infected then overrun by the Xenos predators as punishment for defying the Market or as part of a horrifying social extermination campaign. Examining the cold-blooded indifference of the 1% to their fellow human beings would be good if depressing Television, very alien indeed.

Indeed!

If it is half as good as Fargo has been, I'm in. And seeing as the Fargo TV show has been littered with UFOs, I'm looking forward to seeing a Pregnant Minnesotan Police Chief fight off the Xenomorphs, culminating in an Alien Queen being fed through a woodchipper. If the Alien Queen has Peter Stormares face, so much the better.

A very interesting, and promising, choice of showrunner. Mind you, there is still time for it to fall apart, Hawley leaving the project and it then being handed off to a Walking Dead showrunner. Ugh.
