X-Files_Season10

FINALLY! After over a year of waiting, the Fox network has officially announced that 10 more episodes of the hit television series The X-Files have been ordered, and will air during the 2017-2018 TV season, with production beginning this summer (we probably should’ve taken the hint with the recent audio drama announcement that things were afoot)! Read on for the official press release and more!

X-Files Season 10

Let’s just get this out of the way before I proceed with this article, because I do not want to come off as being overly critical

loved the latest 6-episode season of The X-Files. I really enjoyed both the mythology as well as the standalone “monster of the week” episodes. It both reintroduced the mystery back into the mythology that we all thought we understood for over a decade since the original series ended back in 2002, and the standalone episodes gave us great stories we never had in previous seasons. Of course, Darin Morgan’s “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster” episode was probably the highlight of the season. Simply fantastic!

However, as tradition has it, Season 10 concluded on a cliffhanger like all previous seasons of The X-Files did. It left us with a ton of unanswered questions. The season was too short to really flesh it all out. It only makes sense that Season 11 now has a big responsibility to fulfill in answering, or at least clarifying how the “new” conspiracy ties in with the old.

Dear Chris Carter,

As someone who has been a huge fan of The X-Files since 1993, grew up with it and never gave up on it when we all thought it would never return (whether it’d be a third feature film or on television) – I would like to thank you for working so hard to bring back this iconic series with Season 10 earlier this year. The eight-year wait between The X-Files: I Want to Believe and this latest season was almost unbearable, but it was well worth it.

I also would like to take the time to bring to the forefront something that has been weighing on me heavily in the last few months since the series returned.

Update provided after the jump…

RogueOneTrailer2

For the fans who couldn’t attend Star Wars Celebration Europe this year that whined about not being able to view the Rogue One trailer that premiered exclusively for Celebration attendees there, at least they were able to view the latest public trailer that just debuted during the Olympics, right? Well, even if they missed it tonight, they can still watch it here. Can we all get along now?

This second trailer release packs all the punches and definitely shows us why we all should be looking forward to the first stand-alone live-action Star Wars movie. Rogue One really looks to be that fresh take on the Star Wars galaxy that we’ve all been dying to see. Check it out below!

X-Files_Cast

After so many years of waiting, wondering whether or not Fox’s hit series The X-Files would ever get a third film, Fox decided that a limited series event for television was a better way to go, green-lighting six more episodes instead. Needless to say, fans were ecstatic. While we didn’t get a movie, we actually got more than we ever asked for, which was fantastic. More mythology, plus stand-alone stories for Mulder and Scully to investigate. It is hard to believe that it has already come and gone!

The Lone Gunmen

Last July, it was revealed that The Lone Gunmen (played by Bruce Harwood,Tom Braidwood and Dean Haglund) would return for the new limited series of The X-Files. Of course, this was shocking news, consider that they were very much dead by the end of the show’s initial run back in 2002. Some speculated that series creator Chris Carter might bring them back in a similar fashion to what was done in the “Season 10” comic series, of which I have since clarified how that plot line really doesn’t work. Chris Carter seems to agree. Read on to find out what he said at the TCA Winter Press Tour about the return of these beloved characters and how they will come back (minor spoilers ahead)!

X-Files Revival

After being off the air for almost fourteen years, The X-Files will finally return to television with a two-night premiere starting January 24th at 10 PM EST/7 PM PST on Fox (Mondays at 8 PM after that). The hype has been enormous for this six-episode event, much more than for their second feature film back in 2008 (the advent of social media has changed things a bit since then).

Originally, we never though The X-Files would return to television, and fans were actually holding out hope for a third feature film. We still are. Well today, via THR, series creator Chris Carter gives us hope yet again, revealing that he had indeed originally wrote a script for a third film, should 20th Century Fox ever want one. Looks like our suspicions were true after all!

Lone_Gunmen

For fans of The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen were absolute fan favorites. Everyone loved them. They were funny, geeky, smart, paranoid, and always able to get Mulder and Scully out of a pickle. They debuted in the latter half of Season One, and were with the show until the very end. They even had a short-lived spinoff series of their own for a season, but it was unfortunately canceled. Soon after, in the final season of The X-Files, there story came to a close… or so we thought!

EW is reporting that actor Dean Haglund, “Langly” of The Lone Gunmen, has revealed via Twitter than they are indeed returning for the new series next year. Read on to find out more on the return of The Lone Gunmen in The X-Files revival series!

MILLENNIUM on Netflix

Are you one of the thousands of fans of Chris Carter’s Millennium TV series that wonder why the series is still not streaming on Netflix? After all, Carter’s The X-Files has already been streaming there for years now, allowing more and more people to discover the show who didn’t watch it when it aired. Not only that, but Millennium was the only other truly successful TV series Chris Carter created, gaining better ratings than many shows that stay on the air today. Let’s face it – Millennium was the original crime procedural series that paved the way for similar shows like CSI or Criminal Minds, and tackled much deeper and darker themes than any other shows that followed in the footsteps of Millennium. With so many other sub-par TV shows and movies currently streaming on Netflix, it makes all the sense in the world for a quality show like Millennium to enjoy a firm place there as well.
