FOX Gives Greenlight To Additional Season Of The X-Files
Last year, the show returned to the airwaves after ending its initial nine-year run over a decade ago for a special, six-episode event. Debuting in 1993, The X-Files propelled leads David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to stardom and proved to be one of the most successful television programs of the 90’s. Indeed, it was this lasting appeal that led to series creator Chris Carter deciding to revive the show for its run last spring.
Production on the new season of the program is set to start this summer, with Fox planning to make a total of 10 new episodes. Whether this means that the show will continue after the new season concludes remains to be seen.
Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, quotes Fox Broadcasting Company president David Madden as saying the following about the show:
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why ‘The X-Files’ has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said David Madden, President, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of ‘The X-Files’.”
