Chris Carter is Hungry to Bring “Millennium” Back

Anything is possible on the small screen these days, as evidenced by shows like “Full House,” “24” and “The X-Files” being brought back in recent years. The latter series was created by Chris Carter, who was also the man responsible for Fox’s “Millennium.” 

The series ran for three seasons beginning in 1996, starring Lance Henriksen as ex-FBI agent Frank Black, who has the ability to see inside the minds of criminals. Fox cancelled the series in 1999, though Henriksen brought Frank Black back to the small screen in a subsequent episode of “The X-Files.”

Henriksen has long been rallying fans to beg Fox for either another season or a feature film, and it seems Carter is as keen on a continuation as the actor is.

I think Millennium would be a show that would have more life in it but no one’s ever spoken seriously to me about that,” Carter told Deadline over the weekend. “I always feel that there are more of those stories to tell as well. After three seasons, we pulled the plug on that show but the ratings were still very good so I think that there is a new approach to that show building on the solid foundation that was already there.”

How bout it? Would you like to see the return of “Millennium”?

    Hmmm……..let me think about it, FUCK YEAH I would love to see ‘Millennium’ come back! That show was cut down it its prime IMO. I love me some ‘Frank Black’, and well Lance is just one of those ‘can do it all’ type of actors. Personally I at the time used to commend Chris Carter for running two shows like that, I always had the feeling that ‘The X Files’ always overshadowed ‘Millennium’ and held it back to varying degrees. I mean just 3 seasons and the show was receiving good ratings and to just bag it like that! Bring it back Chris!

    Yes please. Scariest network show of all time.

    Hell yeah, bring it back!!! While my wife and I were X Files fans, we scored the Millennium dvd series as soon as it was made available (never got the X Files sets) We always puzzled over what behind-the-scenes politics may or may not have been involved with the sudden disappearance of this fantastic show.

    One of the most depressingly bleak shows that has ever aired; also one of the greatest. Henriksen is genius, and fans of “NCIS” owe “Millennium” for pushing the envelope of network violence to more allowable extremes.

    Seriously, I think it would do even better now than it ever did back then…truly a show that was at least a decade ahead of its time.

      “I think it would do even better now than it ever did back then…truly a show that was at least a decade ahead of its time.”

      Exactly …and on several counts. That, however, may represent thee crucial dilemma to reviving the series. As in, just how peripherally truthy’ish would the show’s producers be allowed to delve without tapping directly into actual events and the entities behind them? Maybe they could write some obvious disinfo into the scripting to placate vested interests? ha

    Man I would keel over if this happens. Absolutely loved Millennium and Lance H. Soylent green is people!

    No. Season 1 was great then wong and morgan turned it into an x files copy.

  • JackLantern13

    A lot of people didn’t like the conspiracy themed second season, I loved it. A mixture of the first and second season would be amazing.

  • Adam Clifton

    I want a Season 4 of MillenniuM. Bring it back please. And Lucy Butler has to return as well

  • AkumajoBelmont

    Most definitely. Millenium had some of the darkest episodes of TV at the time. It was pretty much a perfect run for me all the way through. I’d kill for more!

  • c-s-a78

    please,please,please…bring back HARSH REALM or AMERICAN GOTHIC!

  • JoeBo

    I still have my phone ringer set as the Millennium theme music (haunting violin). Bring it back for season 4 so someone actually knows what my ring tone is.

    • Necro

      Haha!
