Published on Dec 8, 2017

The all-new 10-episode installment once again will be executive-produced by creator Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning in their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The event series will air during the 2017-2018 season.

In 2016, THE X-FILES drew an average Multi-Platform audience of nearly 16 million viewers and was last season’s No. 2 broadcast drama. It also was the season’s most talked-about event series on Twitter.

THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully and Mulder, as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, THE X-FILES is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter

Excited yet Philes? We are.

EW: David Duchovny explains why he won’t be writing for The X-Files season 11

If Mulder invites Scully for another round of late-night baseball when The X-Files returns for its 11th season, David Duchovny won’t be the writer behind the magic.

Duchovny has confirmed to EW that he will not be writing or directing for The X-Files in its next 10-episode season, though that’s not for lack of trying. “I always say if I have an idea, I would love to write and direct it,” Duchovny says.

The X-Files star was no stranger to the creative process during the series’ original run. Duchovny wrote and directed two episodes — season 6’s “The Unnatural” and season 7’s “Hollywood A.D.” — and collaborated with series creator Chris Carter and writer Howard Gordon (Homeland) on the stories of four episodes in the sci-fi drama’s second and third seasons. In addition, Duchovny returned to the show after departing as a regular to direct a pivotal episode near the end of the ninth season, shortly before what was then the series finale.

The actor tells EW that Carter offered him the chance to write and direct in season 11, but it didn’t come together. “I had an idea that I was toying with, which is actually a movie idea,” Duchovny says, “and I was trying to figure out if I could transpose it into being an X-File. Because then you have to add two characters that demand a lot of time, Mulder and Scully. And you have to tell it in 45 minutes, so you’ve got to shrink it in half while adding two major characters. And in the end, I couldn’t see how it would work.”

Time constraints added to the complication. Even though the Fox drama’s upcoming 10-episode run is four episodes longer than season 10, which aired as an event series in 2016, Duchovny hesitated to minimize his character’s involvement in so much of the story.

“If I’m going to direct a show,” he explains, “it necessitates that I’m very light in the [previous episode] so I can prep it, and it necessitates that I’m somewhat light in the show afterwards, so that I can do post. So really what I’m asking for, if I’m directing an X-File, is, Okay, you’re doing 10, but I’ve got to be light in three out of those 10. And that’s just not fair, really.”

Seven writers for the new season — including vets like Carter, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong, all of whom wrote for season 10 — were announced in June. Each of season 10’s six episodes was directed by its writer; Fox has not yet confirmed EW’s inquiries as to whether every season 11 writer is also set to direct.

“Chris was very generous in asking me to do it,” Duchovny says. “I hope I didn’t disappoint him by not coming through, but I’ll just be acting.”

As for what he’ll be acting in, Duchovny says (as of his conversation with EW on July 14) he hasn’t seen a script — and that’s not for lack of trying, either.

“I text Chris every day nudging him to send me whatever he’s got,” he says. “I’m supposed to get something very soon. Maybe today. Maybe tomorrow.”

The X-Files season 11 begins production in Vancouver later this summer.

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson Talk X-files Season 11 (E! Red Carpet)

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.

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson at the FOX Upfronts & Webby Awards

Excited for The X-files Season 11 yet? We’re definitely getting there! Here is something to hold you over until we (hopefully) start getting set pictures in August.

The elephant in the room – David’s arm is in a sling! We don’t know what happened but we hope it wasn’t too painful and hope he’s on his way to a speedy recovery. Between his injury and Gillian Anderson’s broken foot, it was an interesting sight on stage at the Webby Awards. David presented Gillian with the Best Actress award for her critically acclaimed role on The Fall.

The Webby awards ceremony will be available to watch on Youtube tomorrow.

In the meantime, we have some clips we have gathered from around the Twitterverse.

The X-Files GIF – Can we have an animated comedy series, 1970s Abbott & Costello Style?

The X-Files GIF

Editorial by WALT FRASIER @WALTFRASIER

Can we have an animated X-Files comedy series, ala 1970s Abbott & Costello Style?The X-Files

Anyone remember 1970s cartoons. I am thinking of Abbott & Costello, Three Stooges and The Jackson 5ive in particular. Hanna-Barbera and similar Productions gave new life to classics. We even had some great animated Star Trek stories.

Bud Abbott actually voiced the cartoon with another actor playing Lou Costello. For my generation it forced sayings like ‘I WANT MY MOMMA’ and ‘AAAAAABBBOOOOOOTTTTT’ into our psyche as classic A&C. Years later I played Lou Costello at events as part of a tribute comedy team, performing their classic routines and got to know them for their full artistry.

 

As a superhero geek, I have always been more about the animated and live action adaptations of my favorite characters – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash – than sitting down with the actual comics.

Similarly I have yet to get into the X-Files comics, and the fan-fiction just is not my thing. Sorry to many friends that read and write popular fan fiction. I will gladly laugh at a brief erotica MSR but I move on quickly.

The X-Files

Anime

But I want more of what I see above. The GIF looks very similar to those 1960s and 1970s classics. As David has said, we have three different Mulder/Scully character types. Leave the Monster of the week and Mythology Mulder – Scully alone with 6-8 episode arcs. Peel away the comedy world as a spin off.

Chris Carter could have an outlet for his comedy episodes, protecting our live action time from fiasco’s like Babylon.  Vince and Darren can still contribute comedy to live action. CC is banned, saving him from himself!

FOX can introduce this franchise and these characters to a younger audience, delivering millions of hours of future syndication watching of the original episodes.

The X-Files

Crossover?

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson could voice over and entire season in under a week, giving us tons of new content w/o inconveniencing the talent. Gillian could record her lines from UK studio.

We could revisit dozens of our favorite monsters. What ever happened to Monkey Boy, Flukeman, and… Darin only played two roles?

The Bounty Hunter can be their retired quirky neighbor.

Mitch Pileggi’s Walter Skinner can be like Mike the Cop, always getting mad at Mulder. You know, exactly what happens now.

The X-Files

8yo Mulder & Scully solve mysteries – Encyclopedia Brown meets Supernatural

And then we can have random celebrity cameos like old Scooby Doo Mysteries.
OR even better, Chris Carter himself can take on Stan Lee type cameos in every episode, playing 1-liner characters – janitor. cabbie, security guard, etc.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!!

X-Files My Struggle up to date with the science? Ununpentium Element 115

X-Files 2016 up to date with the science Ununpentium Element 115

X-Files is back and like past episodes and movies, creator Chris Carter always roots his science fiction in real science and popular conspiracy theories. After watching The X-Files “My Struggle” for a fifth time tonight, my geeky side got curious.

X-Files ARV

ARV from The X-Files: My Struggle

In a recent phone conference call, Chris Carter admitted he attended conventions and conferences filled with conspiracy theorists and that we would be amazed and surprised at the numerous Americans and the theories they hold dear.

Sounds like to many, X-Files is a documentary, not fiction.

arv1

But some of the science is real. Well at least based in real theories at least.

Zero-point energy, also called quantum vacuum zero-point energy, is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may have; it is the energy of its ground stateSource Wiki

GARNER: It runs on .. so called zero point energy.

MULDER: Free energy?

O’MALLEY (Joel McHale): Available since the 1940s

The Zero Point Energy (ZPE) is an intrinsic and unavoidable part of quantum physics. The ZPE has been studied, both theoretically and experimentally, since the discovery of quantum mechanics in the 1920s and there can be no doubt that the ZPE is a real physical effect. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN

Conspiracy Theories that Tesla discovered FREE self sustaining energy over 100 years ago have floated for years. The big oil companies have buried this in favor of trillions in oil sales, as pointed out by Mulder. CLICK HERE for one fear mongering report.

Ununpentium

SOURCE WIKI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ununpentium

MULDER: Gravity Warp Drive, but how?

GARNER: Element 115. Ununpentium. 

MULDER: Where did you get it?

Not that there really are ARVs out there, but Ununpentium Element 115 is real. In fact, just this past December 2015, it was recognized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). So if you go back to college and take Chemistry, your periodic tables will soon need to be updated.

ARV

UUP, you know me!!

The element was named back in 1979 by the IUPAC.

The element was first synthetically created in 2003 by American and Russian teams. 4 atoms – I know its amazing – were created and gone in 100 milliseconds.

A number of scientific teams tried to recreate the experiments from 2003. In 2015 a team from Berkeley published they had successfully produced the element.

But with a half-life of only 220 milliseconds, Alien Replica Vehicles would need a lot of UUP and some very impressive alien technology to stabilize the highly radioactive element.
