David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson on “X-Files” Revival | E! Live from the Red Carpet
David and Gillian answered several X-files related questions about the upcoming Season 11. When asked about the Season 10 cliffhanger with Mulder and Scully, both seem to be in the dark about what Chris Carter has planned for their characters. “Chris Carter has not told me yet whether I’ve managed to save the human race” Gillian told E! “But given that we’re doing ten episodes that I save it for ten episodes worth of time.”
David also commented on something that MANY fans have literally been begging for on twitter, blogs and other social media platforms – the possibility of him contributing to the writing team “I don’t think that the people playing the characters are the best judges of where the show should go. Nor do I think the fans are to be honest with you”
(insert screaming face emoji here)
I do think that the show would benefit from David contributing to the story arcs as he did in the past. Some of my favorite mythology episode arcs were those that he developed with Chris Carter. They were some of the best episodes of the series in my opinion.
In regards to doing an X-files musical episode David laughed and said “I don’t think that’s a good idea but I’d be down for it. Sure.” Gillian on the other hand made it clear it was not something she would want to do “No. Nah-uh. No. No. No” she said.
While we clearly adore David’s music and have no doubt they could both make it work, I would have to side with Gillian on this one.
