Amazon Cancels X-FILES Creator Chris Carter’s New Series THE AFTER
Last February Amazon premiered the pilot episode for Chris Carter’s horror series The After. Shortly after they announced that they would be developing it into a series. Almost a year later Amazon has announced that they’ve changed their mind, and they will no longer be moving forward with the show. Roy Price of Amazon released the following statement:
“We have decided to not move forward with The After. We would like to thank Chris Carter, the phenomenal cast, crew and producers for all their efforts.”
This is kind of a shame. I though the pilot episode showed some real potential for a series, and audiences seemed to like it as well. Apparently, Amazon thought so too. The pilot starred Jamie Kennedy, Sharon Lawrence, and Adrian Pasdar, and it centered around several people coping with a modern-day apocalypse.
Carter has kind of had a rough go of it since The X-Files ended in 2002. The guy created one of my all-time favorite series, and he hasn’t really done anything amazing since. In my mind, this guy should have been in same kind of place that J.J. Abrams is in right now. It makes me wonder if he just pissed a bunch of people off along the way.
