It's looking like Fox and Chris Carter are going to get another season of The X-Files! I absolutely loved the installment of the series that aired earlier this year, and I, along with many other fans, were hoping that that we would see the supernatural adventures of Agent Mulder and Agent Scully continue.
During a recent press call, Fox TV Group chairmans Dana Walden and Gary Newman were asked about their plans for another installment of The X-Files, and Walden offered a very optimistic reply:
“We have had conversations with (creator) Chris Carter and (stars) David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I believe everyone is on board to do another installment of the show.”
All of the people involved with the series are doing different projects at the moment, and they are scattered all over the world, but Walden is hopeful they will have something to announce next year. She explains, “Hopefully this season we will be able to get it done and that the same time next year (May), we will have something to announce.”
Newman went on to talk about the discussions that are taking place with Carter, Duchovny, and Anderson, and how they have included talks about “what kind of episodic order makes sense. Some of that is driven by schedules.” He went on to reiterate:
“Conversations are ongoing. I can tell you that all of them would like to do more of these, and certainly the network and studio want to do more.”
The next X-Files event season is tentatively being planned for the 2017-18 season. I couldn't be more excited to hear that the everyone is looking to move forward with more X-Files greatness!
