We’re less than a week away from the debut of new X-Files episodes. Who ever thought I’d be typing that in 2016? After the cut, check out a new trailer with a tonne of new footage including everyone’s favorite Cigarette Smoking Man.
In other news, series creator Chris Carter revealed that he has already written a third X-Files movie. Whether it ever sees the light of day will likely depend on the success of this six new episodes, and of course a commitment from the two main stars.
As I mentioned in our 2016 anticipation column I’m trying to keep my expectations low for the new 6 episodes of The X-Files that will start airing on January 24th. But after the break, check out the opening minute of the show which gives a very, very brief recap of the series. It should have ended by seguing into the theme music, and maybe it will when the show airs, but either way it made me smile.
This isn’t a conspiracy theory worthy of investigation by the Lone Gunmen. It is looking like Fox is revisiting the X-Files!
Following the success of Fox’s 24 limited series, the network is looking to bring back another iconic drama series, The X-Files. Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman today confirmed chatter that the network is in talks for a new installment ofChris Carter’s cult supernatural drama, which starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Newman went on to say he was “hopeful” about the outcome.
With the network mining old hits like 24 and X-Files, why not a remake of Briscoe County Jr?
