What terrifies X-Files creator Chris Carter

ONE of his stars is on the record as saying she won’t come back for more episodes, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end.

“I’M VERY pessimistic right now,” The X-Files creator Chris Carter says over the phone from Vancouver. He’s worried about the state of the world. This is a man whose imagination has envisioned so many apocalyptic scenarios, portrayed on his iconic sci-fi series, but it’s real-life that has him terrified. “I think we are heading into very strange times to do with so many of things people are talking about,” Carter tells “I have a fascination with biological terrorism right now. There was a former CIA chief who said there are three ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter interview: The X-Files

In the run-up to The X-Files season 11's DVD and Blu-ray release on Monday the 23rd of July, we chatted to co-creator Chris Carter.

Ahead of The X-Files season 11’s DVD release on July 23rd, we spoke to the show’s creator, Chris Carter, about sci-fi influences, real-life UFOs, and the real reason the cult classic still draws us in after 25 years… How are you doing, Chris? I’m doing great, thanks. I’m actually in Vancouver – kind of on a working vacation, but I’m not in production. Oh, of course – there’s an X-Files exhibition on there right now, isn’t there? (It ran until June 30th at Back Gallery Project, which is run by Carter’s fri ... [Continua a leggere]


25 years after its debut, The X-Files remains beloved by a legion of diehard fans. Iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are arguably sci-fi royalty, so it’s no surprise that they returned for an eleventh season of out-there cases following 2016’s successful mini-series revival. Image Engine was previously called upon to bring the stunning and surreal sights of season 10 to life, which included everything from crash-landing UFOs to secretive alien autopsies. The crew was again brought on board for The X-Files season 11 – a much larger effort, with more episodes and a ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files Season 11 Ending Explained

Series creator Chris Carter helps us answer some of the lingering questions from The X-Files season 11 finale.

The world is safe from an alien pathogen… for now. The four-part “My Struggle” saga has come to a shocking conclusion that has huge implications for The X-Files if the series is to continue beyond season 11. There’s no guarantee Fox renews the series, though series creator Chris Carter told us he’s optimistic there will be more X-Files stories to tell, even if Gillian Anderson is true to her word and has indeed made her last appearance as Dana Scully. Before we even begin to consider what the series would be like without Scully (and ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files Finale: Chris Carter Talks Scully's Secret, That Polarizing Twist and a Gillian Anderson-less Season 12

Warning: This post contains massive spoilers about The X-Files‘ Season 11 finale. Proceed accordingly.

The X-Files taketh away… and The X-Files giveth. Wednesday’s Season 11 finale ended on a giant cliffhanger: Though the pandemic in Scully’s visions was averted, it came with a price — the apparent death of her son, William/Jackson, at Cigarette Smoking Man’s hand. When a grief-stricken Mulder lamented that his son was dead, Scully sadly corrected him: The boy was, indeed, Cigarette Smoking Man’s child, created with technology (which explains his ability to blow people up using just his mind) and implanted in her all those years ago. But the ... [Continua a leggere]

Did 'The X-Files' Just Kill Off a Fan Favorite?

The star talks with THR about the big twist in the season 11 (and possibly series) finale.

Did The X-Files just kill off one of its longest-running characters?Throughout 11 seasons and two feature films, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) were able to rely on their boss, Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). Although the relationship was occasionally strained — including this season as Skinner kept his reluctant ties to the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) quiet — no one has been a better ally to the wayward duo. But during Wednesday’s season (and possibly series) finale, it appeared that the character sa ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files finale: Chris Carter explains that shock ending

Is this the end of The X-Files? And if so, who’s really dead? And who’s not? What’s the story with that pregnancy shock? Below The X-Files creator Chris Carter takes our burning questions about the season 11 finale in the wake of speculation about the show’s future and star Gillian Anderson’s declaration that she’s finished playing Dana Scully. WARNING: Spoilers ahead! ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, first: Walter Skinner. Just seeing his limp foot isn’t very conclusive — at least, in terms of TV rules. So are we to ass ... [Continua a leggere]


It's been a whirlwind 10-hours of The X-Files Season 11, and with "My Struggles IV" the Mulder/Scully party looks to be over. While there are certainly some cliffhangers, the revelation about Mulder and Scully's miracle child also felt pretty satisfying. In our last The X-Files postmortem of the season (series?), we chatted with creator and episode writer/director, Chris Carter, about the four-part "My Struggles" arc, who the heck is actually dead, and what the future holds for the series. Did it feel different this year bringing the season to a close? Chr ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files, caccia alle streghe nell'ottavo episodio

La caccia alle streghe è la persecuzione ai danni di qualcuno scatenata solo da dicerie, supposizioni o pregiudizi. E X-Files, nel nuovo episodio della stagione 11, ce ne parla come sempre in modo efficace.

Pupazzi inquietanti (capeggiati dallo spaventoso Mr. Chuckleteeth). Bambini che scompaiono al parco mentre la mamma si distrae per dieci secondi. Manifestazioni reali dei pupazzi inquietanti nei boschi. E poi tutta la trafila: dalle ricerche in massa al ritrovamento del cadavere. E poi, naturalmente, Mulder e Scully sul luogo del delitto. L’ottavo episodio dell’undicesima stagione di X-Files segue pedissequamente i cliché degli horror soprannaturali che hanno reso celebre il filone in stile "bambola assassina". Il coywolf, incrocio fra coyote e lupo, sono la spiegazion ... [Continua a leggere]

'The X-Files': What Did Scully Whisper to Mulder?

"When you’re used to having that playful banter with someone, when they’re suddenly honest, it takes you aback," episode writer Karen Nielsen says. "It’s, ‘Oh, we’re actually going to have a real conversation about this.’ Sometimes those things can be scary."

[This story contains spoilers from the March 14 episode of The X-Files.]When first-time The X-Files scribe Karen Nielsen wrote Wednesday’s episode, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” she set out to tell a character-based piece. “I wanted to have some character moments with Mulder and Scully — that was super important to me,” says Nielsen. “I thought it would be interesting to have Scully reflecting on her religion. My sister is very Catholic, and I’m not. So I liked the dynamic of Scully being very Catholic and Mulder not; I related ... [Continua a leggere]


Leave it to Chris Carter and company to make the penultimate The X-Filesepisode of the season arguably the most viscerally gory of the whole series, and yet the most emotionally bare we’ve ever seen Mulder and Scully be towards each other. “Nothing Lasts Forever” is the very first X-Files script written by Season 10 and Season 11 script coordinator, Karen Nielsen. One of only six invited participants in the prestigious Canadian Film Centre's Bell Media Prime Time TV Writer's Program, Nielsen actually first worked with The X-Files executive ...

X-Files, l'intelligenza artificiale nell'episodio 11x07

Assenza di dialoghi, parole rivolte principalmente a strumenti tecnologici: nell'undicesimo episodio di X-Files Mulder e Scully non girano intorno alla questione. Stiamo abusando della tecnologia e perdiamo di vista ciò che conta davvero.

Non avrebbe potuto essere collocato in un punto migliore, questo episodio di X-Files sui rischi della tecnologia, la depersonalizzazione, la morte - lenta e graduale - del contatto umano. A questo punto dell'undicesima stagione, è come la proverbiale ciliegina sulla torta. Chris Carter e Glen Morgan ci regalano un episodio da manuale. Un episodio che contiene tutte le idiosincrasie della società contemporanea, che ammonisce su tutti i rischi delle tendenze attuali e che ci dice, senza mezzi termini, che la tecnologia deve restare al servizio dell’uomo, e non cambiarlo. Fra ... [Continua a leggere]


This week's episode of The X-Files, "Familiar," felt very much in line with a horror film: witchcraft, child murders, and the scariest children's entertainers since John Wayne Gacy. Almost as scary is the realization that there are only two new episodes of The X-Files left -- possibly forever. We spoke with Benjamin Van Allen, who wrote "Familiar," but is also a staff writer on this season. He told us about the terrifying origins of Mr. Chuckleteeth and Bibble-Tiggles, and how William fits into this episode. He also gave us a preview of what we can expect from the last two epis ...

X-Files: Recensione episodio 11x06. Kitten

X-Files ci parla della guerra. La guerra è un mostro. Un mostro mascherato, reso ancora più spaventoso da armi non ufficiali, da esperimenti e dalla lucida decisione di sacrificare ragazzi innocenti.

La guerra in Vietnam. Una delle più grandi ferite, mai rimarginate, della storia americana. Siamo nel 1969 e un elicottero militare - con a bordo John James, soprannominato Kitten - viene attaccato, e costretto a un atterraggio d'emergenza. Terrorizzato, a seguito dell'emissione di un gas, John (Haley Joel Osment, l'ex bambino de Il sesto senso) perde il controllo e attacca i suoi compagni. Nel frattempo Mulder e Scully incontrano un loro superiore, Alvin Kersh, che li informa di come Skinner si sia messo nei guai e sia scomparso. Cercandolo, i due agenti si rendono conto di non sa ...

I will admit it: I have been sitting on tonight's episode of The X-Files for a week, dying to talk about it with someone. So when I got the chance to interview Kristen Cloke and Shannon Hamblin, the writers of this week's amazing "Rm9sbG93ZXJz," I got a little excited. "Rm9sbG93ZXJz," which translates to "Followers" in Base64 code, is one of the more unique episodes of The X-Files. When Mulder (David Duchovny) doesn't tip the robot staff after a sushi dinner date with Scully (Gillian Anderson), the machines rise against them. The episode, brilliantly directed by Glen ...
