As part of the TCA Winter sessions, FOX organized a studio day for the journalists involved in the traditional gathering for the press. This Q&A had been advertised to be with the attendance of David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and Chris Carter. Due to the current mudslide and storm situation in Montecito and Santa Barbara areas, Carter had to skip the event but producers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and Jim Wong stepped up to be part of the panel. After the presentation of the latest trailer of the new season, the different members of the press took turns to inquire about th ... [Continua a leggere]

SPOILER WARNING! The X-Files Season 11, Episode 2, "This" discussed at length below!
Long-time The X-Files writer, Glen Morgan, wrote and directed this week's episode, "This," which brought back (kind of) Lone Gunman Langly, and explored the afterlife via tech. In an exclusive sit down with SYFY WIRE, he explains what he was trying to do with the episode, lessons learned from Season 10, and the personal inspiration for this tale. After the huge ratings for Season 10, did you assume that would lead to moreThe X-Files stories? Glen Morgan: I didn't really think about it. I thought it would be done, so I was as surprised as anybody. In "This," you we ... [Continua a leggere]
‘The X-Files’ wanted Robert Patrick back as John Doggett for Season 11, but ‘scheduling issue’ got in the way
“I know we tried to get Robert Patrick a couple times,” confirmed “The X-Files” executive producer Glen Morgan at the Television Critics Association winter press tour about Fox’s current revival of the classic sci-fi series. However, Patrick’s day job on CBS’s “Scorpion” made him unavailable to shoot any new episodes for “The X-Files” Season 11. “We’ve tried, but it was just a scheduling issue,” Morgan said. Patrick’s John Doggett was cast in “The X-Files” Season 8 as way to fill the gap left ... [Continua a leggere]
The X-Files season 11 is slated for 2018 and will bring back some familiar faces on the creative staff.
The X-Files season 11 will pick up after a cliffhanger, that much is certain. Fox's 10-episode order still leaves a number of unanswered questions, including how many monster-of-the-week episodes we’ll get, who will be writing scripts, and if we’ll get the return of Mulder and Scully Jr. One answer we did get was from writer and producer Glen Morgan. We sat down with Morgan on the set of his new series, an adaptation of the popular genre podcast Lore for Amazon (the details of which we’re not yet at liberty to discuss), and he confided that ...

I am beyond thrilled to bring you this interview with Glen Morgan, a big part of the original X-Files creative team who returned as an executive producer for 2016’s season 10! Glen is a triple threat, really – writing, producing, and directing – and he wrote some of The X-Files’ most iconic episodes along with his partner in crime, Jim Wong. He brought us some great, creepy bad guys, like Eugene Victor Tooms (season 1’s “Squeeze” and “Tooms”) and Luther Lee Boggs (in “Beyond the Sea”), made us cry along with Mulder when Scully r ...

Last week's episode of The X-Files is one fans will, no doubt, never forget. I mean, how can any of us erase from our minds the image of Fox Mulder tripping on mushrooms and proceeding to perform a country western dance? What you may not have realized at the time, though, was how four different, well-known pieces of music were weaved together to create a not inexpensive backdrop to that sequence — "Somethin' Bad" by Miranda Lambert (featuring Carrie Underwood), "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus, "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins and "Misery Is the River of the World" by Tom ...

'I just felt that was worth exploring on a show like this,' Morgan tells EW
Warning: This story contains spoilers from Monday’s episode of The X-Files. Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) has lost another family member. “Home Again,” the fourth installment in The X-Files’ six-episode event series, saw Scully and Mulder (David Duchovny) saying goodbye to Scully’s mother, Maggie (Sheila Larkin), who succumbed to a heart attack. EW talked to writer-director Glen Morgan about why this was Maggie’s time, the message she needed to send to Mulder, and which trilogy of episodes “Home Again” completes. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Fr ...

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]
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 ...

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 ...

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 ... [Continua a leggere]
One of our favorite genre shows is FOX’s “The X-Files,” while one of our favorite horror movies is New Line Cinema’s 2000 Final Destination. What if the two were nearly one in the same? We got in touch with Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick (@jeffreyareddick) who had a shocking never-before-seen relic to share exclusively with Bloody Disgusting readers. Dated 1994, Reddick has made available (exclusive to Bloody Disgusting) the unused script for his “X-Files” pitch, ‘Flight 180.’ “I was really exciting to find it on old floppy d ...

The truth may be out there, but now it's closer than ever. "The X-Files," the blockbuster sci-fi series that ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002, will begin shooting its six-episode series revival in Vancouver in early June -- and much of the old behind-the-scenes gang will be back for the ride, said Glen Morgan, one of the renowned screenwriters and co-executive producers from the show. Morgan, who is currently in Australia teaching a "showrunner masterclass," told Australian radio host Nicole Dyer in an on-air interview on Friday that the show's first script, penned by series creator Chris C ...

As the month of June draws ever closer, Fox’s X-Files revival is starting to take shape. Original series writers James Wong (American Horror Story), Glen Morgan (BBC America’s Intruders) and Darin Morgan (Those Who Kill) have signed deals with the studio and will help script the six episode limited series revival, TVWise has confirmed. Glen Morgan and James Wong are also set to direct one episode apiece, while Glen Morgan will also serve as an executive producer. The trio have been more-or-less on-board for The X-Files revival for some time, with Chris Carter revealing in a inter ... [Continua a leggere]
Series creator talks about Vancouver and B.C.’s role in making the show a hit
The truth is simple: Chris Carter loves Vancouver. The creator of hit sci-fi show The X-Files is coming back to the B.C. coast this week to be the guest speaker at a Vancouver International Film Festival Industry panel being held on National Canadian Film Day on April 29. Carter has been invited to discuss The X-Files’ deep connection to the TV and film industry in B.C. since its creation in 1993. Carter arguably opened the province’s doors to American television and film artists when he decided to shoot The X-Files in Vancouver and B.C. for its first five seasons, before taking ...
