There’s been some information come out about the possibility of a continuation of THE X-FILES. Deadline has an article out detailing what is happening behind the scenes. I’m sure that Mitch will be back as The Skinman due mostly in part with something that creator/showrunner Chris Carter has said before in the past about Skinner being the third leg in the tripod between Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny). The sticking points here are geographical as Gillian lives in England and David is splitting his time between California and New York, and of course Mitch lives in Texas…..

‘The X-Files’ New Season Update: “Significant Talks” Underway – TCA

The six-episode new season of The X Files was one of the best performing Fox series last season, especially on-demand. Ever since the reboot launched, Fox executives have been trying to secure more episodes.

“We would love to do other seasons,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said at TCA Monday. “There are significant talks with all three principals”, creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. “We are working hard, and would like to get a new season soon.”

Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden admitted that Fox wanted to do more than 6 episodes in the recent revival. “We would have liked to do more in the first place, but there were limitations,” she said. “Gillian lives in the U.K. David in New York and Los Angeles. The show shoots in Vancouver. So it’s about coordinating a time when they can carve time to be in Vancouver.”

Another abbreviated season is what Fox is looking at realistically. “We’re in conversations where we can do more,” Walden said. “I don’t see a full season of episodes, but I’d be happy to get 10 or 8 episodes.”

Madden and Walden were asked whether the network would want to make creative changes for a new season of The X-Files since the recent one was met with mixed reviews. “I actually think the season was strong,” Madden said. “The episodes represent Chris and his team’s vision, and we will take our cue from them.” ‘

Added Walden, “The show was off the air for a very long time. It was introduced to new viewers, and (the writers) had the challenge of filling in the mythology. Going forward, there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series.”

In the latest issue of TVGuide US, David Duchovny in a Q&A about his returning show Aquarius was asked about the possibility of FOX continuing THE X-FILES, this is what he had to say on it.


You had great ratings success last winter with Fox’s X-Files reboot. Any plans to get back together with creator Chris Carter and costar Gillian Anderson for more?

We are talking about it, and like before, it’s a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it. Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won’t take that long. And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.
