The science fiction horror drama created by Chris Carter revealed that "The X-Files" Season 11 will be back in production in Vancouver next spring. The TV series will finally return after a lot of speculations following its recently revived six episodes earlier this year.
"I imagine we would be up there shooting in the spring of 2017," Chris Carter told The Globe and Mail. The 58-year-old producer revealed that fans could expect longer chapters as he is planning to do "a small expansion" on "The X-Files" Season 11's number of episodes. He also confirmed that the "talks are well advanced" for the major roles of the series, FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
"They are constructive negotiations so I can't imagine ['The X-Files'] wouldn't come back," Chris Carter added. Also, the known director's spokesperson revealed that they are in discussion with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to reprise their roles in the coming "The X-Files" Season 11. It was recently reported that the 56-year-old actor's "Aquarius" was already canceled, while the 48-year-old actress' "The Fall" Season 3 with Jamie Dornan was about to come to an end.
