Do X-Files fans still want to believe? The paranormal US drama series, which partnered Gillian Anderson’s sceptic Scully with David Duchovny’s more open-minded Mulder, was an intrinsic part of nineties pop culture. In its heyday, it could be terrifying, warmly funny – with that famous Anderson-Duchovny chemistry at its heart – and brilliantly bizarre, often all at once. It came to a temporary end in 2002 after nine seasons, spawned a rather disappointing 2008 film, and then dramatically returned in 2016, along with its leads, for a six-part mini-series. The revival hit ... [Continua a leggere]

Will Fox be opening up more X-Files? According to Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Gary Newman at TCA today, it’s still TBD. “You could’ve asked Chris (Carter), David (Duchovny) and Gillian (Anderson) at various times since the show originally premiered whether they would do more.

Chris Carter on X-Files Season 10, William and the brilliance of Mitch Pileggi
It’s fair to say that The X-Files revival ended on a little bit of a cliffhanger.

Which is not to say that the six episode miniseries didn’t get a lot done. There was plenty of arc mythology, William was not only addressed but loomed over each and every episode, and we even got an all-time great comedy episode from Darin Morgan: ‘Mulder And Scully Meet The Were-Monster.’ We got the chance to talk to creator Chris Carter about his expe ...
