There’s a two-decade gap between Alien: Covenant and Alien, and while this new film provides a direct line of action from Prometheus to Alien, it doesn’t entirely lead up to that original film. Scott has ambitious plans for the future of the Alien franchise: he says Alien: Covenant is “one of three sequels to Prometheus that will take the saga to the ‘back entrance’” of the original film.
He’s also said he can keep this story going for another six films. He said he’s writing the next film now, and that he’s aiming to have it in production within the next 14 months. It’s unclear what that film will be about just yet. Back in March, Scott referred to a film called Alien: Awakening that might take place between Prometheus and Covenant, but he’s also referred to Blomkamp’s canceled film as Awakening.
Ridley Scott revealed he was planning two sequels to Prometheus which would lead into the first Alien film, also stating that there might be “even a fourth film before we get back into the Alien franchise.” In November 2015, Scott confirmed that Alien: Covenant would be the first of three more films before linking up with original Alien, thus starting a new trilogy of sci-fi films, and stated that the Prometheus sequels would reveal who created the Aliens. According to an interview with Scott that took place on the set of Alien: Covenant in 2016, Scott had the screenplay for the third prequel film written while working on Alien: Covenant, so that he could “be ready to go again next year.” Scott also mentioned the revived franchise might go on for even longer than previously mentioned; “I can keep cranking it for another six. I’m not going to close it down again. No way.”
In March 2017, Scott stated that if Alien: Covenant and the film that would follow it were successful, he had plans for another three Alien films. Scott explained: “It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant.” In May 2017, Scott revealed that Alien: Awakening was originally the name of Neill Blomkamp’s since-cancelled Aliens sequel. 20th Century Fox is currently reassessing the sequels pitched by Scott, due to Covenant under-performing at the box office. In the audio commentary for Alien: Covenant, Scott confirmed that a sequel to Alien: Covenant, tentatively referred to as Alien: Covenant 2, is being written by John Logan, with Fassbender, Waterston and McBride reprising their roles. Scott also confirmed that the film will cap his prequel series, leading directly into the events of Alien. In an interview with Variety on September, Stacey Snider, the current chief-executive-officer of 20th Century Fox, stated that while Alien: Covenant was a financial disappointment they still trust Ridley Scott to know the right story and to proceed with the sequel. In an interview Ridley discussed how the film will center on the A.I. character David.
Either way, it seems as though Scott is now looking to set up the original Alien with these new films, rather than mess with the post-Aliens era.
