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”?
