When 'The X-Files' Became A-List: An Oral History of Fox's Out-There Success Story

On the eve of a six-episode reunion series, creator Chris Carter, stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and the executives who put the risky show on the air in 1993 recall how the pop sensation all but minted money for a fledgling network.

Anyone handicapping Fox's fall 1993 lineup likely would have gone all in on the self-titled sitcom from Sinbad rather than a supernatural FBI drama starring two no-names for the network of 90210 and Married … With Children. That bet would have been woefully misguided. The X-Files went on to become a bona fide smash for the 8-year-old network in desperate need of legitimacy and has endured in ways few TV series can claim. Chris Carter's original 202-episode run, which peaked north of 27 million viewers, spawned two feature films and launched the careers of Gillian Anderson and David Duc ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files' David Duchovny on His 'Shorthand' With Gillian Anderson, Favorite Revival Episode

It’s been 14 years since David Duchovny‘s truth-seeking, pencil-tossing, Scully-crushing FBI Special Agent Fox William “Spooky” Mulder last appeared on the small screen, a drought that will end on Sunday, Jan. 24 with the premiere of Fox’s six-episode revival of The X-Files. In the following Q&A with TVLine, the 55-year-old actor — and current star of NBC’s Aquarius — reflects on his X-Files past “difficulties” with leading lady Gillian Anderson (yes, we said past), present affection for playing Mulder and the futu ...

X-Files - Genesi di un mito

Chris Carter ha mescolato poliziesco, fantascienza e molto altro per dar vita a una serie immortale.

Negli anni '20 i robot di Metropolis, il capolavoro di Fritz Lang, impersonavano il desiderio di progresso e l'amore per la tecnologia, destinato a crescere anno dopo anno. Negli anni '50 l'America esorcizzava la paura dell'invasore, il nemico comunista, attraverso i film di fantascienza. Negli anni '70 la paura era quella del diverso, dell'alieno, dell'ignoto. Il mostro di Alien la incarnava e apriva la strada al Terminator, protagonista del decennio successivo, e a uno spaventoso Giorno del Giudizio in cui le macchine avrebbero sopraffatto l'uomo. Poi arrivarono gli anni '90 e un ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files Revival: Glimmer of hope for special agents Mulder and Scully

MULDER and Scully might have split, but the cult sci-fi characters are “desperate” to find a reason to get back together when they return to the small screen next year.

Speaking ahead of the hyped television revival of the 1990s cult hit The X-Files, creator Chris Carter described the new relationship between his famed special agents as “rocky”, but offered a glimmer of hope for a reunion. Carter also revealed the six-part reboot series will tackle issues of terrorism in one episode, as well as returning to its base plot of government conspiracy. The series, which originally aired from 1993 to 2002, relied heavily on the sexual tension-fuelled platonic relationship between the two main characters who eventually became a couple by the end of the ...

The HFPA Investigates The X-Files

There are successful shows, popular shows and then there are iconic shows. The X-Files undoubtedly belongs to the latter, a rarefied category of series that changed the face of television and, during its original 9 run, arguably, popular culture. So, seldom has a reboot been so intensely anticipated. A group of HFPA journalists recently had access to the top-secret Vancouver set. Elisabeth Sereda recaps what we know so far … and what we can expect.

Trust no one. Least of all anyone who tells you so called secrets about the new X-Files. And do not think for a minute that any of the just revealed posters will, in fact, reveal anything other than that they are wonderfully designed art. Whether it is the group shot, the smoking man or the spooky shadows of the two protagonists with the flashlight. The only thing illuminating is – perhaps – the new trailer where Mulder warns that we have never been in more danger. Oh yes, and there’s a monster so maybe the 2012 alien invasion never happened.

The X-Files: Glen and Darin Morgan Come Home

During the X-Files writers panel at EW Fest, Glen and Darin Morgan discussed their re-opening of The X-Files.

Chris Carter wanted to come back to The X-Files only if there was an original idea that could “update” the series -- rather than reboot or revive as we’ve labeled it for months. Yet in telling new X-Files stories, Carter found comfort in old friends, who found beats in old conspiracies that still resonate today. During the “The Inside The X-Files Writers’ Room” Panel at EW Fest, Carter sat down with X-Files writers Glen and Darin Morgan, who penned many of the series’ iconic episodes, to talk about the writing process for the 6-episode miniseries. &l ...

'X-Files' creator: Here's why there are fewer alien believers today

Blame technology.

Fox is bringing The X-Files back to television for the first time since 2002 with a six-episode run that debuts Jan. 24. The show’s creator, Chris Carter, made the trek to New York Comic Con to premiere the first episode, “My Struggle,” for approximately 800 fans on Oct. 10. Given the fan reaction, as well as the critical acclaim that followed the show’s world premiere at MIPCOM in Cannes, France on Oct. 6, this likely won’t be the last we see of agents Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). After nine seasons on Fox FOX 0.53& ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files Creator Chris Carter Doesn’t Want You to Call the Show’s Return a ‘Reboot’

What's in a name? To X-Files creator Chris Carter, that's a loaded question. Fans are calling the show's six-episode January return all sorts of things: reboot, revival, miniseries. None of those seems accurate, Carter said Saturday during the show's EW Fest panel with veteran X-Files writers (and brothers) Glen Morgan and Darin Morgan. “‘Reboot’sounds cheesy. I don't like any of those words,” Carter said. “I call it ‘programming by feather duster.’ If you've liked this before, you'll like it again. I think none of us wanted to come back if it was ...

The X-Files at EW Fest: 7 things we learned

X-Files fans got a glimpse inside the writers’ room on Saturday at EW Fest — not that the groundbreaking sci-fi series ever had a writers’ room in a traditional sense. As executive producer/ writer Glen Morgan, who is returning for the show’s new season in January, recalled, the writers rarely broke stories in a group, working instead out of boxy offices or each other’s backyards. But out of the series’ regular group of writers came a number of TV’s biggest influencers, including Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) and Frank Spotnitz (Man in ...

'The X-Files': Chris Carter on the Franchise's Future, Who He Wanted for Reboot

"I jumped at the idea when I found out the actors were interested," Carter tells THR. "I can tell you the idea of a reboot wasn't the way I wanted to go. I didn't want to come back to do a victory lap, to do sequels, or anything like that. I wanted fresh, new material and that's what we've done."

It's been a whirlwind year for The X-Files creator Chris Carter.  Fox first announced its hopes to revive the groundbreaking series during its winter TCA session; the order was official by March. Because of stars David Duchovny (Mulder) and Gillian Anderson's (Scully) busy schedules and other commitments, the series started filming only a few months later. ‎And about six weeks after production wrapped, the team premiered the first hour with splashy — and high-stakes — debuts at MIPCOM and New York Comic Con.  Now, wi ...

The X-Files creator promises a return 'for the hardcore fans'

Season 10 of The X-Files (and yes, take it from superfan Kumail Nanjiani: They’re calling it season 10) made its U.S. debut at New York Comic-Con on Saturday with an episode that was at once new and familiar. “We tried to pull things from the distant past and make them relevant to today,” said series creator Chris Carter. “We’re trying to be honest to the time we live in. When they talk about the new world order, it’s something with a lot of scope.” Nanjiani, who appears in an episode of the new season, approves. “You always think, ‘How do ... [Continua a leggere]

Mipcom: Chris Carter riapre X-Files. Nuovo pilota, stesso entusiasmo.

Tredici anni dopo l'ultima messa in onda televisiva gli X Files sono stati ufficialmente riaperti dal loro creatore Chris Carter che davanti ad una platea di diverse centinaia di professionisti della televisione e dell'entertainment di tutto il mondo ha ammesso candidamente: "Non me lo sarei mai aspettato." Per il momento saranno sei gli episodi che vedranno tornare in azione David Duchovny e Gillian Anderson nei panni degli ex agenti dell'FBI Fox Mulder e Dana Scully alle prese con fenomeni paranormali apparemente inspiegabili, ma - soprattutto - con una cospirazione in cui sono coinvolt ...

Liveblog: Chris Carter talks new X-Files: “Believe it or not, I’m a sceptic”

After premiering a new episode at MIPCOM, creator answers questions on its future

The X-Files creator Chris Carter appeared at MIPCOM today after a premiere of a new episode of the iconic show, to answer questions on how it came together, and what may lie in its future. Télérama’s Pierre Langlais (right) hosted the Q&A. Did he always have in mind that one day the series would come back? “I never imagined that I‘d be sitting here in Cannes introducing more television episodes! It’s surreal. It’s really a dream come true for me to do something. I’ve been doing this now for roughly a little over a third of my life. I ... [Continua a leggere]

'The X-Files' Boss Chris Carter Explains Mulder and Scully Split

"We do it in an interesting way," Carter tells THR.

When The X-Files returns to Fox in 2016, the show's core partnership will be fractured: in the time since viewers last saw Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) — in 2008 feature, I Want to Believe — the franchise's central pair have broken up. "We do it in an interesting way," The X-Files creator Chris Carter tells The Hollywood Reporter of his decision to break up the popular couple. "We play with that relationship [in the event series]. We put some of the tension back in that was relieved by them being together. It added to the storytelling opp ... [Continua a leggere]
