Second THE X-FILES Event Series Installment Likely Next Year

At the upfront press call for Fox, Fox TV Group chairmans Dana Walden and Gary Newman were asked about another The X-Files event series and spoke optimistically about the possibility of another.

Walden said,”We have had conversations with (creator) Chris Carter and (stars) David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I believe everyone is on board to do another installment of the show.”   She said, although that everyone involved is currently working in various places worldwide, that “hopefully this season we will be able to get it done and that the same time next year (May), we will have something to announce.”

Newman added that  Carter, Duchovny and Anderson have talked about various aspects including what kind of episodic order makes sense. Some of that is driven by schedules.” And that Conversations are ongoing. I can tell you that all of them would like to do more of these, and certainly the network and studio want to do more”

The next installment is being tentatively scheduled for the 2017-18 season.   The first event series had strong VOD performance, making it the second-most-watched Fox program on VOD last season. It was also one of Fox’s top programs last season.
