Do we get to see more murder drama? the cult series involving Mulder and Scully?. Well that's what fans hope for atleast. And according to Fox studios it's very likely to continue with the series in 2018. After having a short stint of 6 episodes only last year. The very popular series from the 90's brought back good memories of old days. The X-Files continued with their original main characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively and we must say it was quite popular now too with becoming the network's most popular in the newcomer category. Though it would have been unfair to the iconic show of criminal investigations to not being renewed after having ended on a cliffhanger episode with very wicked experience. Fans hope that it surely should come back and just as the studios signalling their prayers would be answered as well. People can expect a still larger no. of episodes this new season but not like the network's usual 22 episode run. By giving the tentative signal, Fox is clearly hoping that the necessary deals will be made and if goes well fans can get season 11 in 2018. Do check for more X-Files drama at Couchtuner.

I wanted to believe it’d be different, but that’s not what happened last night. There were reasons to fear The X-Files coming back before a single episode was shot; it’s hard to put lightning back in a bottle. Nostalgia is powerful, but not unbreakable. When I first wrote about The X-Files’ return, I was willing to admit that I’d keep watching, despite the dreadful season premiere. There was reason for hope, too, as the series got better as it went along. The second episode was promising if a bit generic, the third episode was hilarious, and the fourth episode was a touching reminder of why this series works: Mulder and Scully. The episodes that didn’t work? The first, fifth, and six. Who wrote those episodes? Series creator Chris Carter. He’s been the weak link the whole way, and weirdly, it’s because he keeps getting away from the people he created. Little about The X-Files has mattered but the relationship between skeptic and believer. The mythology, convoluted as it became, was window dressing for two characters having their beliefs challenged over and over. The “truths” and conspiracies were, really, moments (for us) to better understand themselves. The baseline for the revival was whether Mulder and Scully still worked. For the most part, that’s been proven true—I still love watching those two bounce off one another, the passage of time only adding to the long history between them. Given all that, I can’t figure out why the last two episodes do their damnedest to make sure Mulder and Scully aren’t even in the same room together. In the finale, a mess on just about every conceivable level, they don’t have a single line of dialogue with one another until the closing moments Are you kidding me? You had one job, X-Files! The one thing you needed to nail—the only thing that mattered—was a satisfying conclusion (or extension) of their relationship. Despite the plotting missteps along the way, that arc seemed like it was finally heading somewhere, with Mulder and Scully reconsidering their difficult decision to give up their son, fearing he’d be targeted by those in the shadows. As they grew older and the world began to move on, their hearts grew heavy. Talk about a missed opportunity. I wish it was the only problem with the episode. I mean... Why bring back Skinner if you’re not even going to use him? Fox Mulder, Mr. Conspiracy, has a phone tracking app on his desktop? Why would anyone actually pay attention to Tad O’Malley? Are we supposed to believe Scully fixed a worldwide epidemic because she’s saved a single hospital? How could they mass produce her DNA in time? The long-awaited showdown between Mulder and The Smoking Man spends half the time with Mulder lying on the floor? I’m still upset Mulder and Scully barely ever talked to one another? I just wanted Mulder and Scully to track down another weirdo like the Flukeman. The X-Files has always been at its weakest when the stakes were raised beyond the main characters because it’s a show about those characters. I cared about Mulder’s sister because I cared about Mulder. I cared about what happened to Scully when she was kidnapped because I cared about Scully. Everything else? Eh. I suspect The X-Files will be back (again) in a few years with some episodes that try to bring actual closure. We don’t know who’s piloting the UFO that showed up in the final seconds, but given Scully musing about their son, it seems likely said child has been keeping tabs on them. Plus, a UFO in plain sight flips the show’s mantra on its head; the truth really is out there and everyone can see it. It’s hard to imagine the episodes would focus on anything but wrapping up the remaining loose ends of the series’ mythology, and that’s a depressing thought. Is there a way we can pretend none of this happened and just lock Mulder and Scully in a basement again to track down a bunch of weirdos? Who cares what was supposed to happen in 2012? Who cares what The Cigarette Man is up to? There’s no use saying I won’t watch future episodes. I will, of course, because I am weak. In an ideal world, Carter would step back from his creation and let other people step in. That seems unlikely. Carter started this train, and he’s going to end this train. One way or the other, we’re going to the last stop. Article source

Batu69 posted a topic in Entertainment ExchangeJust enough time to watch an episode a day until the the start of the new seriesIt's a nonstop news day here at The Multiverse. Not only did we just get word of a 2018 Han Solo solo project, but now there's a new X-Files trailer on YouTube to enjoy as well (see below). As previously reported, Fox is bringing back FBI agents Scully and Mulder (who hasn't yet died from autoerotic asphyxiation) in a six-part series starting 201 days from now. 201 days is an important number for the X-Files because that's how many episodes are already on the books. Indeed, Fox has used this trailer to encourage fans to watch along, an episode a day, until the premiere of the new series on January 24, 2016. Although there's not much new footage in the teaser, there is some new footage starting at the 30 second mark, beginning with Mulder in a disused hanger with what's either a UFO or a helicopter outside: The fact that the revived X-Files will be helmed by original show runner Chris Carter in addition to having many of the original cast is something that warms our hearts. Whether or not we can restrict ourselves to a single episode a day between now and January is less clear. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I want to pop the Lone Gunmen into the DVD player...Source
Reefa posted a topic in Entertainment ExchangeTeam X-Files is getting the band back together! We previously heard that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were returning with series creator Chris Carter to do a 6-episode TV mini-series like Fox did with 24: Live Another Day. Since we last spoke, more details have emerged about the X-Files revival and the production has added some key players from the early seasons sweet spot of the original series. Carter has confirmed that Mitch Pileggi will return as Walter Skinner and William B. Davis will return as the Cigarette Smoking Man, though I’m pretty sure he got blown up, so who knows how that’s going to happen. Carter told the Vancouver Sun in a phone interview that CSM would be back “in a particular X-Files way.” That sounds great because Carter also confirmed this mini-series will mix an “ongoing Mulder and Scully conspiracy saga” with “standalone episodes,” adding, “It will all be of a piece, meaning that it won’t feel disconnected.” If I get a good alien conspiracy along with some monsters, I’ll be ready to go. Then again, a “conspiracy saga” doesn’t necessarily mean THE X-Files Conspiracy lives on (AKA world colonization by an alien race), just that there is some conspiracy Mulder and Scully and maybe the kid they have together get caught up in. Carter said there was a “big chance” The Lone Gunmen will also return for the series, and what better source for a creepy new mystery than a group of characters whose March 4th 2001 spin-off show was about the US government conspiring to fly a plane into the World Trade Center and blame it on Terrorists. The show was cancelled before September. No, really, The Lone Gunmen was kind of on to 9/11. It’s still creepy. Maybe the biggest news about The X-Files Revival involves the people working behind the scenes. TV Line reports that writer-producers Glen Morgan and James Wong, veterans from the first seasons, have joined the revival. If you were a fan of the X-Files during it’s original run, you know that Morgan and Wong teamed up to write some of the all-time classic episodes of the show. And like everything worthy of fandom in the mid nineties, the pair have at least one Angelfire Page dedicated to their greatness. Morgan and Wong produced the first truly scary “monster of the week” episode, “Squeeze,” and arguably the best Season 1 Scully episode “Beyond the Sea.” The latter is especially notable for essentially being a twist on Silence of the Lambs (which, as us elders say, was the style at the time) but doesn’t feel like Silence of the Lambs thanks to the focus on Scully’s faith. The duo also wrote what was probably the most traumatizing thing I saw on Fox as a child (and Fox was new, so they were showing a lot of traumatizing stuff like animal attacks and whatnot…was the style at the time). I’m talking about the fourth season episode “Home” that was filmed in black and white and had a plot that relied heavily on incest. “Home” was the first X-Files episode to get a Viewer Discretion warning before the show and has since been the only episode to be broadcast with a TV-MA rating. “Home” was such a boundary-pushing episode that Fox didn’t re-air the show after its initial viewing, so for a short time in pre-internet 1997, it existed as an oddity you either videotaped or you didn’t. According to TV line, Morgan and Wong won’t be pairing up for any episodes on the Revival’s run, unfortunately. Morgan is on as another executive producer alongside Chris Carter and both Morgan and Wong will get to write and direct one episode apiece. With the thrilling news that Morgan and Wong will return, the other diamond in the rough the X-Files discovered – Breaking Bad‘s Vince Gilligan – crushes our hopes once again. He’s too busy on other things to take on the X-Files Revival in time for it to shoot this summer or fall. But that’s okay. I’ve got my key players from the first three seasons involved, so I’m in regardless. geek.com
Reefa posted a topic in Entertainment ExchangeWhen Fox decided to bring Jack Bauer back to television for a mini-series called 24: Live Another Day, I did a deep body sigh, because 24 had gone so wildly off the rails. If you haven’t seen Fox’s real-time suspense series, I can save you some trouble: seasons 6, 7 and 8 are trash. You might as well pretend they never happened. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Live Another Day also forgot most of those seasons and managed to right the 24 ship in a post-George W. Bush world: no small feat for Jack Bauer. This makes me doubly excited at the news that Fox is going to bring back The X-Files with original stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny for a six-episode X-Files mini-series in the vein of 24: Live Another Day. We’d been hearing rumblings that Chris Carter, creator of the X-Files, and the two magnetic leads were willing to return for years. After the last movie, X-Files: I Want To Believe, released (and kind of broke the series, in my opinion), people were not enthusiastic about the idea of an X-Files 3. Fringe was also on Fox at that time, and the network was having a hard time keeping viewers around in the “Friday evening death slot,” a time slot that hasn’t flourished on the network since the original run called it home. Now, the announcement has been confirmed by Carter and the motivated parties: X-Files will be back, the six-episode sequel run will shoot this summer. The concerned parties have issued official statements: Chris Carter: “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.” Anderson and Duchovny: “We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of ‘The X-Files’ — one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers — and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again. ‘The X-Files’ was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture — yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as ‘The X-Files’ and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.” Cut and dry and telling us nothing. At least we know the world wasn’t invaded in 2012 by Super Soldiers thanks to some shady Cold War dealings anymore. Speaking of: what is this show going to look like now that we’re afraid of the world again? The 1990s were a perfect time to do shows about government conspiracy because we had time to contemplate our own government. In a post-9/11, post-24 landscape, what paranormal invasions really matter? In a post-Edward Snowden world, do I care if the government is covering up aliens? All I can say is this better be about aliens — and, of course, science. http://www.geek.com/news/the-x-files-is-coming-back-to-tv-complete-with-mulder-and-scully-1618754/
