The X-Files Season 11 Update: Fox Bosses Promise Significant Talks Are Happening
The X-Files remain open at Fox, but the question remains when we might get to spend some time with Agents Mulder and Scully again to clear up that apocalyptic cliffhanger.
While they didn’t have a concrete timeline to offer reporters on hand during their executive session during the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden and Fox Broadcasting Company Entertainment President David Madden reassured that talks with stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, as well as creator Chris Carter, remain ongoing.
“We would obviously love to do another season. There are significant talks going on,” Madden admitted. “Schedules are hard. We’re working hard to get this done and we’d love to get another season out now.”
What might a new batch of episodes of The X-Files look like? That remains to be seen, but Walden shared following the panel that she hopes to expand on the revival season’s six-episode order. “We would’ve liked to have done more in the first place. It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris’ schedules,” she continued.
