Perhaps the only thing to stifle anticipation for another X-Files revival was the first X-Files revival, though FOX undoubtedly wants the chance to try again. That may soon become a reality, as network heads claim they hope to announce the next chapter “shortly,” potentially even for the next TV season.
Now that Rogue One has everyone (rightly) fawning over Mads Mikkelsen again, it’s worth wondering where Bryan Fuller stands on a fourth season of Hannibal, given his tightening schedule of late. A new interview sees the former showrunner clarifying the characters and format of a potential revival, which could explore Silence of the Lambs after all.
FOX did its best to restore The X-Files to its former glory by the returns of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and Chris Carter, even if the final product felt notably rushed and uneven. Season 11 remains an open possibility, as FOX claims to be in “significant talks” with all three cornerstones, with intent toward a longer season.
You didn’t think we’d make it through Comic-Con 2016 without worshiping Starz’s American Gods, or Ash Vs. Evil Dead, did you? Fear not, for those groovy gods have officially confirmed their panel plans for 2016, while a new photo teases Gillian Anderson as the God-ly Media.
FOX’s upfront announcements have come and gone, cementing that The X-Files won’t return for another round just yet, even if its revival season cliffhanger left off on a pretty urgent note. David Duchovny has his own opinions on what a new season would need, but Gillian Anderson says FOX hasn’t even so much as inquired about her availability.
Just when you thought the cast of Bryan Fuller’s American Gods weren’t godlike enough, in comes our first major Hannibal reunion. Gillian Anderson has ascended to American God-hood (again), this time in the role of Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods of Fullers’ Starz drama.
Once the nostalgia abated, FOX’s X-Files revival pretty quickly started to sour fans by its awkward mix of mythology and stand-alone episodes, as well a cliffhanger ending that immediately demanded resolution. Well, strap in for another long wait, as FOX won’t get around to an X-Files Season 11 until at least 2017.
‘The X-Files’ closed out 2016 revival finale “My Struggle II” with a hugely alien cliffhanger, but did Mulder and Scully finally give fans they answers they’ve struggled for? Find out in our full review!
FOX’s 2016 X-Files finale will leave us all in the lurch on Mulder and Scully’s future, so why not explore their past? Like, way past? That’s right, it’s teen Mulder and Scully to the rescue in a pair of 2017 novels, as FOX gets thirsty for that sweet, sweet YA money.
All eyes will be on The X-Files to deliver a strong finale of its 2016 revival, given its uncertain future, and uneven run to date, and “My Struggle II” is at least off to a good start. Less well-off is Mulder, who seems to have taken a beating in the first real clip from Monday’s mythology-laden closer.
