The X-Files Season 11

The X-Files Update: 'Significant Talks' Underway With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for Season 11

The hardball negotiations are out there.

“Significant talks” are underway with key X-Files players Chris Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on an 11th season of the Fox phenom, Fox entertainment president David Madden confirmed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Monday. “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard. We’re working hard to get this done.”

In an interview with our sister site Deadline last month, Anderson insisted she had yet to be approached. “I’m open to the conversation, though they haven’t come to us yet,” she said, presumably referring to both her and Duchovny. “I have no clue when they’re going to. I’m getting on with the rest of my life and I’m booking other jobs, so if it is indeed something that they would like to continue, then that conversation will need to be had. And I have no idea when that will be able to take place at this juncture.”

Regarding the decidedly mixed reviews that greeted the recent six-episode 10th season (particularly that much-derided finale), Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden said at Monday’s TCA presser, “The show was off the air for a very long time, and was introduced to a variety of new viewers [via online platforms]… They had a challenge of filling in the mythology and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are now. I think going forward there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series.”

    I guess now they are really talking. That’s good but it is still not likely to be back on screen until late 2017 at earliest. I hope this goes better than this last one

      I though Season 10 was pretty good. No, it didn’t match the best of the original series but with a 6 episode reintroduction that would have been hard to do. And while it may not have matched the best I think it compared favorably to an average season of the X-Files and an average season was pretty good.

    The ratings guaranteed that Fox would look for another season. Gillian and David’s interest in reviving the show for S10 make another season seem very likely.

  3. For the love of God bring back Vince Gilligan to write a few episodes and Laurie Holden to bring back Marita Covarrubias! Then I will be interested
