The six-episode revival of The X-Files went over huge with fans, both new and original and was one of the most highly-rated series for the Fox network. Since the series aired fans have been begging for more and Fox wants to oblige.
We would love to do other seasons,” David Madden, president of Fox Entertainment, said Monday. “There are significant talks with all three principles [creator Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny]. We are working hard, and would like to get a new season soon.
Fox TV Group’s Dana Walden confessed that they wanted more the six episodes in the revival, Deadline reports. but experienced limitations.
Gillian lives in the U.K. David lives in the New York and Los Angeles. The show shoots in Vancouver. So it’s about coordinating a time when they can carve time to be in Vancouver.
So, how real are the chances of getting another season? Pretty good. Walden says “We’re in conversations where we can do more. I don’t see a full season of episodes, but I’d be happy to get 10 or 8 episodes.” I choose to “believe” that we will see more of Agents Mulder and Scully investigating The X-Files in the near future.
