Blade Runner and Alien TV shows are in the works, according to Ridley Scott

Director Ridley Scott has confirmed that both Blade Runner and Alien are coming to the small screen. TV shows for both franchises in the works, but could still be a while off, considering Scott didn’t divulge as to when we can expect either show to hit our screens.

As reported by Pocket-lint, Scott said of the Blade Runner TV show that “we [have already] written the pilot for Blade Runner and the bible. So, we’re already presenting Blade Runner as a TV show, the first 10 hours.”

Scott also mentioned the existence of the Alien TV show, which seems to be a bit further away as that show’s bible (the general outline of the show’s first stretch of episodes) is still in the process of being written.

Mention of a TV show isn’t the only piece of action the Blade Runner franchise has seen after the release of the Blade Runner 2049 movie. The first episode of the Blade Runner: Black Lotus anime premiered earlier in November, so it seems like the property as a whole is set to remain busy for a while.
