Aside from a messy, info dump-heavy first episode, I personally found last year’s limited revival of “The X-Files” to be incredibly satisfying. It was great to see Mulder and Scully back after so many years, the episodes (particularly “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”) were enjoyable, and the ambitious finale left me hungry for more. But when are we getting more, if ever?
Soon, friends. Soon.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Fox president David Madden just told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that the network is expecting “to have an announcement very shortly” in regards to the renewal of “The X-Files.” The only holdup, he says, is that deal-making has been made a little bit complex due to the busy schedules of both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny… who better be paid equally when the show does return!
Madden also revealed that future seasons of the series will likely be longer than six-episodes, but not quite as long as the show’s original 20+ episode-per-season format.
Expect the return of “The X-Files,” if all goes according to plan, in 2018.
