Screen Rant reports that Fox has canceled the potential sequel to the Alien: Covenant after poor box office performances. However, Fox has reassessed the series and considered canceling the series in the past prior to this report.
The report is based on a forum post named HumanMedia who stated “The sequel to Covenant was originally due to start preproduction this month in Sydney. After the box office results filming was canceled, and a warehouse storage unit full of stuff was auctioned off a few months ago. So the original plan of pumping out another quickly has definitely changed with no immediate plans for anything.”
This report should be taken with a bit of skepticism, due to its shaky source. It should not be a surprise if this report should come out as true.
Despite all of this and its relative unsuccessful box office, the series’ director, Ridley Scott, has ideas for potential sequels still.
