Ridley Scott, the creator behind classics like Alien and Blade Runner, has been quite busy discussing his latest film, House of Gucci. In an interview with BBC, he talked about the upcoming Alien series that was announced as part of FX’s line-up during Disney’s Investors Day. Yet, he also revealed that they are also working on a live-action Blade Runner series where he highlights that they’ve already finished the pilot and the series bible. In his full quote, he stated 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.Ridley Scott
The franchise isn’t a stranger to long-form storytelling, as Adult Swim recently released the Anime adaptation titled Blade Runner: Black Lotus. There’s a good chance they’ll simply explore the world of the franchise but not connect it to the plot of the original, as Denis Villeneuve’s sequel, Blade Runner 2049, already expanded upon the story set up back in 1982. He also didn’t point out where we can expect the series to release. If it might join Aliens on FX or go to a different streamer, like HBO Max. We’ll see once more details are revealed on the new series.
