Alien Timeline

When does the Alien Timeline start?

The Alien Timeline only contains content canon to the series. The Alien chronology is quite frankly a mess. Unfortunately, the Alien Vs Predator (AVP) series have been declared non canon by 20th Century Fox. Those movies are a lot of fun so its shame they get left out. The comics are also declared non canon because they have too many problems staying true to Alien movie chronology. There are a few novels and video games included in the timeline. In 2014, Alien: Out of the Shadows, Alien: Sea of Sorrows, and  Alien: River of Pain novels were released in a attempt to the tie the Alien movies together. They are included in this timeline. If you have an question or comments you can drop us a message on our Contact page.
