The revival of The X-Files was a ratings success for Fox, and besides two particular episodes was a pretty solid installment for the franchise. I mean, it had some of the show’s best and worst episodes in a six episode season — it was very X-Files-y. With that in mind (and a cliffhanger ending), many have been asking if we were going to get more of the series.
The answer is “almost certainly, but not for a while.”
It’s being reported that Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden has stated that Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are all on board for another season. The only obstacle is just how busy all of them are, so we shouldn’t expect it for at least another year.
This is good news for fans of the show, especially since (as previously mentioned) that revival season ended with a ridiculously dumb cliffhanger ending. Lord knows how they plan on getting themselves out of it, but I look forward to seeing them try.
