The X-Files creator Chris Carter on government conspiracies and paranormal experiences

The 'esprit de corps' has persuaded him to return to the much-loved series

It’s a broiling hot July morning in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, and Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files, is patiently giving me an interview in the basement cafe at the Théâtre du Passage, the home of the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival. By rights, he shouldn’t be here at all. The Californian is midway through shooting a new six-part season of the show that originally ran from 1993 to 2002. He has left Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back in Vancouver, where the team has recently finished the second episode, to come to Swi ... [Continua a leggere]

Q&A: Chris Carter on The X-Files and 'The '90s: The Last Great Decade'

A lot can change in 15 years. National Geographic Channel's upcoming three-part miniseries The '90s: The Last Great Decade? makes that quite apparent, with a look back on the decade that gave us Bill Clinton's presidency, the rise of America Online, the musical stylings of Vanilla Ice, and a spooky little television series called The X-Files. Created by Chris Carter, The X-Files debuted in September 1993 and quickly became a touchstone for an entire generation of skeptics, sci-fi enthusiasts, conspiracy theorists, and audiences in search of something that was unlike anything else on televisio ...

Spotlight: Why X-Files Creator Chris Carter Returned From Sabbatical for Amazon’s New Show The After

A lot has changed since Chris Carter created his megahit The X-Files. New platforms, riskier material, binge-watching, and live Tweeting have changed the television landscape forever. After taking nearly a decade to regroup and recharge, Carter is back with his Amazon pilot The After, a sci-fi drama about eight strangers, thrown together by mysterious forces, who must help each other survive in a world that is both unfamiliar and unforgiving. Carter hasn’t been sitting idle all this time—he directed The X-Files: I Want To Believe, and appeared at Comic-Con with stars Gillian Ande ... [Continua a leggere]


Interview: Chris Carter Talks ‘The After’, Working With Amazon, Third ‘X-Files’ Film, ‘Unique’ & More

Chris Carter is back in the TV game. The veteran writer/producer/director, best known for creating Fox’s long-running 1990s series The X-Files, has had a long career in the industry having created such cult series such as Millennium, Harsh Realm and the often forgotten X-Files spin-off The Lone Gunmen. Since X-Files went off-air in the early 2000s Carter has largely been absent from the industry, only briefly interrupting his hiatus to produce a second X-Files feature film and to work on the long-gestating feature project Fencewalker. Carter signalled his intention to get back in the ... [Continua a leggere]

‘X-Files’ creator Chris Carter on his long-awaited return to TV: Amazon's ‘The After’

The drama takes place in the same universe as his previous work

Chris Carter helped change television when he created The X-Files in the 1990s, and while that success led to projects like Millenium and the The Lone Gunmen he’s otherwise stayed away from TV since the series wrapped in 2002. In fact, aside from a second Mulder and Scully film in 2008, Carter has largely been off the radar altogether. That changed last week when Amazon Studios released its latest round of original pilots, which included Carter’s return to the medium. The After follows a group of strangers who find themselves thrown together in a swirl of mystery and coincidence d ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files' Chris Carter on Ending His Sabbatical, Returning to TV and His Amazon Pilot

The X-Files creator Chris Carter has been laying low since the hit mythology series wrapped in 2002. But that's about to change: Carter is plotting a return to TV, starting with the Amazon pilot The After and another project in the works at AMC. "Certainly I needed to recharge," Carter says of his long sabbatical. "Also, television was changing when the show ended, reality TV was really taking over. I saw it as a time to sit back and let the dust settle." That break wound up taking longer than expected, as Carter climbed some mountains, surfed around the world, conducted a fellowship at the ...

Chris Carter on The X-Files, His Sopranos Jealousy, and Rewriting Vince Gilligan

On September 10, 1993, a strange series called The X-Files infiltrated Friday nights on Fox, with brooding story lines involving government conspiracies, sewer-dwelling man-monsters, and little green men. No one knew quite what to make of it at first — including the Fox executives who took a gamble on the project. But series creator and first-time showrunner Chris Carter (pictured above right, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson), a former editor of Surfing magazine, continued to carry out his obsessive vision of recapturing the hair-raising urgency and weirdness of Kolchak: T ...
