'The X-Files': 'Significant talks' under way for more episodes

BEVERLY HILLS

The truth may be out there, but what about more episodes?

Fox entertainment chief David Madden said Monday that "significant talks" with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are under way to bring more of "The X-Files" to the airwaves, but nothing is set in stone just yet.

"We would obviously love to do another season, (but) schedules are hard," Madden told reporters at the Television Critics Association Press Tour. "We're working hard to get this done."

Madden and Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden were asked to address the critical scorn that surrounded the six-episode 10th season. While Walden didn't agree with the criticism, she acknowledged that having to reset the "X-Files" story line presented some creative obstacles.

"The show was off the air for a very long time, and was introduced to a variety of new viewers (via online rereuns)," she said. " ... (Creator Chris Carter and his collaborators) had a lot to cover in those six episodes and had the challenge of filling in the mythology and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are now. Going forward there won't be that obligation to reset the series."

‘The X-Files’: Fox Confirms “Significant Talks” for Another Season [TCA 2016]




Fox executives spoke with the Television Critics Association today. Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden and Fox Broadcasting Company Entertainment President David Madden answered questions about the successful X-Files limited series earlier this year and possible plans for another.

“We would obviously love to do another season,” Madden said. “There are significant talks going on with all three of the principals. Schedules are hard but we’re working hard to get this done.”

After the panel, Walden spoke more about her hopes for a longer run of X-Files. There were only six episodes this year. “We would have liked to have done more in the first place,” Walden said. “It was really the limitations of David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] and Chris [Carter]’s schedules. Gillian lives in the U.K. David lives in New York and California and we do the show in Vancouver. Chris lives up north, so it’s just trying to coordinate a time where they all could carve out a period to be in Vancouver. I think now we have longer to plan. We’re in conversations that potentially we could do more. I don’t imagine it being a full season of The X-Files but I would be really happy if we were able to get eight to 10 episodes.”

During their panel, the question of criticism of The X-Files’ six episodes came up. While the show was highly rated, by the sixth episode it appeared fans and reviewers found the new shows problematic. Madden stood by the show.

“I actually think that the season, the six episodes were strong,” Madden said. “We worked hard with Chris on the previous season. The episodes represent Chris and his team’s vision. Everybody reads what they read. If we have the opportunity to do more episodes, we will take our cue from Chris and his team.”

Walden acknowledged some of the criticism, adding that returning after 14 years burdened this season with additional pressures. A follow-up season won’t have to address them.

“I would just add the show was off the air for a very long time and was introduced to a variety of new viewers through OTT [over the top] platforms [like Netflix and On Demand services],” Walden said. “There was still a lot of time to cover in these six episodes. They had the challenge of filling in the mythology and how they go to where they were at the start of the six. Going forward, there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series. On our social platforms, the chatter is overwhelmingly positive. The fans want more episodes. I did read some negative reviews and I also read some glowing reviews. Like most shows, I thought it was mixed.”

Fox In “Significant Talks” About X-Files Eleventh Season



Like the cliffhanger which capped the tenth season of The X-Files, the show’s future is still uncertain.

According to TVLine, FOX is currently in “significant talks” to bring the series back for an eleventh season. “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard,” said Fox entertainment president David Madden at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour earlier today. “We’re working hard to get this done.”

Of course, as the show is nothing but talk at the moment, it’s unclear when or how the series will come together again. For it’s tenth season, FOX ordered six episodes and  advertised the program as a “limited series event.” Anything is possible, except maybe the full scale alien invasion teased from the series’ earliest storylines.

Fox Chiefs Talk Reboots, ‘X-Files’ Future and Strains of Peak TV Era





The enormity of the TV series landscape these days has helped fuel Fox’s push into the past with reboots and revivals of familiar properties. But shows with built-in brand names still have to earn their way on to the schedule, Fox Television Group chief Dana Walden and Fox entertainment president David Madden emphasized Monday during the exec Q&A session of Fox’s Television Critics Association presentation.

“Reboots are not a guarantee of success — we certainly know that as well as anyone,” Walden said. “Our hope was that the well-known titles — if and only if well executed — would lighten the load on our marketing team (by) taking advantage of viewers’ awareness.”

Bowing on Fox in the 2016-17 season are new iterations of “24” and “Prison Break” and adaptations of movies “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist.” The explosion of TV series options for viewers has made reboots more appealing, Walden said. but in other ways they face a higher bar in getting on the air. Walden said she was flat-out “skeptical” when she heard that “Lethal Weapon” was being shopped as a TV series. She had doubts that the action franchise could sustain as a series and she had even bigger doubts about the ability to cast worthy successors to the buddy cop characters played by Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.

After Damon Wayans and “Recify’s” Clayne Crawford were set in the lead roles, Walden said the pilot “leapt over the bar” to secure a prime spot on Fox’s fall launch schedule. Walden enthused that the series produced by McG and Warner Bros. TV delivers “drama, humor, heart and a level of action rarely seen on television.”


Madden also stressed that while the reboots command much of the spotlight, seven of Fox’s 11 new series are based on wholly original ideas.


“That clearly remains our predominant business,” Madden said. “As we are now starting with comedy and drama development, most of what we’ll be looking at will be original because that’s the nature of what we do.”


Among other topics touched on during the Q&A session and the post-panel discussions:




  • Fox is hoping to do another batch of “The X-Files” episodes, after the show’s successful revival earlier this year, and is in discussions with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter. Walden said she hoped to have more than six episodes in the next go-round.

  • Walden indicated that M. Night Shyamalan’s drama “Wayward Pines” is a contender for a third season renewal, despite its weaker ratings in season two. She said the director has pitched an intriguing idea for season three.

  • Producer Mark Burnett has teamed with the online service Shazam to develop a “Name That Tune”-style music game show.

“Significant Talks” Underway For “The X-Files” Return




The six-episode new season of “The X Files” was one of the best performing Fox series last season, especially on-demand (read our reviews and related editorials). Ever since the reboot launched, Fox executives have been trying to secure more episodes, Deadline learned out of TCA.

“We would love to do other seasons,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said at the event Monday morning. “There are significant talks with all three principals”, creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. “We are working hard, and would like to get a new season soon.”

Madden and Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden were asked whether the network would want to make creative changes for a new season of The X-Files since the recent one was met with mixed reviews.

“I actually think the season was strong,” Madden said. “The episodes represent Chris and his team’s vision, and we will take our cue from them.”

Added Walden, “The show was off the air for a very long time. It was introduced to new viewers, and (the writers) had the challenge of filling in the mythology. Going forward, there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series.”
This past January’s return of “The X-Files” came thirteen years after the original series run and delivered us six brand new episodes from creator/executive producer Chris Carter, mixing stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s mythology. Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabited their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Mitch Pileggi also returned as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner.

Three of the episodes were written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.

In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully took on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes featured appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.”

The season ended on a massive cliffhanger that really made fans angry, but also left the door open for more episodes. It looks as if their patience will be rewarded.

‘X-Files’ in ‘Significant Talks’ for New Season, Potentially 8-10 Episodes




FOX did its best to restore The X-Files to its former glory by the returns of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and Chris Carter, even if the final product felt notably rushed and uneven. Season 11 remains an open possibility, as FOX claims to be in “significant talks” with all three cornerstones, with intent toward a longer season.

As updated by FOX boss David Madden at the TCA press tour (Via TVLine), those “significant talks” are understandably beholden to complicated scheduling between the three integral leads. “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard. We’re working hard to get this done.”

On the plus side at least, co-head Dana Walden says that a new season would ideally run longer than the six-episode run this past year, potentially as high as ten hours:

We would have liked to have done more [episodes] in the first place. It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris’ schedules. Gillian lives in the UK, David lives in New York and California, and we do the show in Vancouver. Chris lives up north. So it was just trying to coordinate a time where they all carve out a period to be in Vancouver … We’re in conversations that intentionally we could do more. I don’t imagine it being a full season of The X-Files, but I would be really happy if we were able to get eight to 10 episodes.

David Duchovny agreed as much in his own recent comments, while Anderson claimed not to have been approached about further episodes. At the very least, Walden also noted that new episodes wouldn’t need as much time to refresh viewers on the characters and mythology, but will that be true by the time more X-Files finally happens?

If ‘The X-Files’ Event Series Returns, It May Get More Than 6 Episodes




When Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) peered into the bowels of a UFO posed above an otherwise normal traffic jam in Washington, D.C., everyone watching thought the same thing: “Was The X-Files revival it worth it?” Whether or not you’re a die-hard fan of the show, the other half of Duchovny’s musical duo with Gillian Anderson, or New Zealand comedian Rhys Darby, the answer to this question probably wasn’t as simple as you would have liked. No matter, because Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden and Fox entertainment president David Madden want more.

At least that’s what the pair told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s (TCA) summer press tour on Monday. According to TVLine, Madden got the luminescent-orb-in-a-bad-photograph rolling when he revealed “significant talks” with Duchovny, Anderson and series creator Chris Carter were underway. This comes as a significant update to news in May that, per Walden, Fox and everyone else wanted to do an 11th season but just couldn’t find the time. Now it seems all parties have made the time to at least talk about the free time they don’t have.

Which is good news since, as Walden told reporters after Madden’s revelation, she “would be really happy if we were able to get eight to 10 episodes”:

“We would have liked to have done more [episodes] in the first place,” said Walden. “It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris’ schedules. Gillian lives in the UK, David lives in New York and California, and we do the show in Vancouver. Chris lives up north. So it was just trying to coordinate a time where they all carve out a period to be in Vancouver.”

Whatever does or doesn’t happen with The X-Files revival, it’s probably best not to leave Mulder staring into the sky for too long. It’s not good for his neck.

Fox Bosses on The X-Files' Future




The X-Files' future is still in limbo.

Immediately after the event series' finale, executive creator Chris Carter shared that conversations had started about Fox ordering more episodes. But nearly half a year later, nothing has been solidified.

"We would obviously love to do another season," Fox president David Madden said during the network's Television Critics Association executive panel. "There are significant talks going on with [series stars David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Carter]. Schedules are hard, but we're working hard to get this done. We would love to get another season out soon."


"The show was off the air for a very long time, and was introduced to a variety of new viewers through OTT platforms," Fox Television Group CEO Dana Walden added. "Not withstanding that, there was a lot to cover in the six episodes. They had the challenge of filling in the mythology, and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are at the start of the six episodes."

"I think going forward, there won't be the same obligation to reset the series," she continued. "I will tell you on our social platforms, the chatter was overwhelmingly positive. The fans want more episodes. I did read some negative reviews, but I also saw some glowing reviews. Like with most shows, I thought it was very mixed."

After the panel, Walden reiterated her hope that the next "season" of The X-Files will consist of more episodes. "We would have liked to have done more in the first place," she said. "It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris' schedule…it was trying to coordinate a time they could all carve out a period to be in Vancouver. Now, we have longer to plan. We're in conversations we could do more. I don't imagine it being a full season of The X-Files, but I would be really happy if we could get 8, 10 episodes."

The X-Files Season 11: Fox Eyeing Longer Run of '8 to 10 New Episodes
By Michael Ausiello / August 8 2016, 11:55 AM PDT

Immediately following Monday’s Fox executive session at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Dana Walden — Chairman and CEO of the Fox Television Group — told reporters that a potential 11th season would likely exceed Season 10’s relatively short six-episode run.

“We would have liked to have done more [episodes] in the first place,” said Walden. “It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris’ schedules. Gillian lives in the UK, David lives in New York and California, and we do the show in Vancouver. Chris lives up north. So it was just trying to coordinate a time where they all carve out a period to be in Vancouver.”

This time around, the network and studio “have longer to plan” for another season. “We’re in conversations that intentionally we could do more,” she said. “I don’t imagine it being a full season of The X-Files, but I would be really happy if we were able to get eight to 10 episodes.”

‘The X-Files’: Fox Remains In Talks With Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson & David Duchovny About Season 11
By Patrick Munn | August 8, 2016





Over the past several months, Fox executives have made no attempt to hide the fact that they are keen to pick up an eleventh season of The X-Files.

During the network’s executive panel at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, co-CEO and Chairman Dana Walden once again re-iterated their hopes to bring Mulder and Scully back to the network.

Fox’s President of Entertainment David Madden even went on record to state that, contrary to a recent report in the press, “significant talks” are indeed underway with Chris Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson about an eleventh season.

Said talks have been in progress for quite some time and the main sticking point is scheduling. Anderson’s hectic work schedule is major factor, which complicates the timing of a pick-up and the size of the episode order. Fox has been aiming for a 10-13 episode season, but the reality is that, owing to the need to mesh the schedules of Carter, Anderson and Duchovny, an 8 episode eleventh season is more likely.

Walden also confessed that scheduling issues are what caused Fox to order a mere six episode for season ten and, ideally, she would have preferred a bigger season. “We would have liked to do more in the first place, but there were limitations,” she said. “Gillian lives in the UK; David in New York and California; and the show shoots in Vancouver. So it’s about coordinating a time when they can all be in Vancouver.”

X-Files: Fox defends that uneven revival season



Posted August 8 2016 — 4:59 PM EDT

Fox is defending its The X-Files revival last season which some critics felt was wildly uneven. EW.com gave the premiere of the sci-fi reboot a “C-“ grade (while others were even more harsh), while bestowing the third episode of the season an “A” grade, concluding that the six-episode revival was “never better, never worse.” Many fans felt the bookending mythology episodes were clunky, stuffed with shouty exposition, while the stand-alone episodes seemed to recapture some of the 1990s series’  original magic.

“I actually think that the season, the six episodes, were strong,” said Fox entertainment president David Madden. “We worked hard with [creator Chris Carter]. The episodes represent Chris and his team’s vision. Everybody reads what they read, but if we have the opportunity to do more episodes, we will take our cue from Chris and his team and I think that there was some very strong work the previous season and we look forward to more. I would just add that, the show was off the air for a very long time and was introduced to a variety of new viewers. There was still a lot of time to cover in these six episodes so they had the challenge of filling in the mythology and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are at the start of the six episodes. I think going forward there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series, but I will tell you that on our social platforms, the chatter is overwhelmingly positive and the fans want more episodes. I did read some negative reviews and I also saw some glowing reviews. So, like with most shows, I thought it was very mixed.”

Madden added that he’s definitely trying to strike deals with all involved to get another season of the show.  “There are significant talks going on with all three of the principals,” he said. “Schedules are hard but we’re working hard to get this done and we would love to get [another] season out.”

The next season of The X-Files would once again probably not be a full season, but executives say they’re aiming for about 10 episodes

Watch Out! More ‘X-Files’ Could Be on Its Way

Are you ready for another season of The X-Files? It looks like a Season 11 might be in the works.

According to TVLine, Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of the FOX Television Group, told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer tour on Monday that FOX definitely wants to do more with sci-fi series.

Walden said they would have filmed more than the short six-episode Season 10, which aired earlier this year, but scheduling with stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny and showrunner Chris Carter proved challenging.

“We would have liked to have done more [episodes] in the first place,” said Walden. “It was really the limitations of David and Gillian and Chris’ schedules. Gillian lives in the UK, David lives in New York and California, and we do the show in Vancouver. Chris lives up north. So it was just trying to coordinate a time where they all carve out a period to be in Vancouver.”

Walden said they now have more time to “plan” Season 11. “We’re in conversations that intentionally we could do more,” she said. “I don’t imagine it being a full season of The X-Files, but I would be really happy if we were able to get eight to 10 episodes.”

FOX wants more ‘X-Files’ but first they should fix what’s broken

While they're not ready to announce a new season, FOX is still certainly planning for more installments of "The X-Files" in the future.

After star Gillian Anderson revealed in June that the network has yet to approach her about more episodes, David Madden, president of entertainment at Fox Broadcasting, says, "There are significant talks going on with all three of the principals. Schedules are hard, but we would love to get that done."

While it's unclear exactly how far along in discussions FOX is with creator Chris Carter, Anderson and her co-star David Duchovny, one big question is how many episodes a Season 11 would entail -- especially given that Season 10 only ran for six episodes.

"We would have liked to have done more in the first place ... I think now we have longer to plan, we're in conversations that potentially we could do more," Fox Television Group CEO Dana Walden tells Zap2it. "I don't imagine it being a full season of 'The X-Files,' but I would be really happy if we were able to get 10, 8 to 10 episodes."

While Season 10's six episodes was certainly a point of displeasure for many fans, it was far from the only issue with "The X-Files'" return. The most glaring flaw in Season 10 was "The X-Files" simply couldn't figure out what it wanted to be.

Starting with the Season 10 premiere, the show essentially unraveled its own mythology, warping the long-running alien invasion story into a tale of government corruption and warfare. That in and of itself left many questions to answer. Unfortunately, the series didn't really follow those threads until the season finale.

Instead, Carter and his team of writers attempted to accomplish a variety of different types of "X-Files" episodes -- from monster-of-the-week ("Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster") to dealing with religion and faith-based issues ("Babylon").

In a full season of TV, these episodes of "The X-Files" would have likely been welcome with open arms -- or at least accepted by fans, as the quality was hit or miss. However, when there are only six episodes to tell a story the size of the "X-Files" mythology, burning off four of them to tell standalone stories was a big mistake.

A six-episode season of the show could absolutely work if it were more focused. Instead, the show tried to do too much at once, with very little of it sticking.

The ratings for the revival were great, so it's no surprise FOX wants another season. When it comes time for Carter to start writing though, he needs to take a moment to reassess the positives and negatives of last season and realize that a scattershot of episodes is not the way to do things, especially when you are dealing with so few installments.

That's an issue that isn't going to change should FOX be able to convince Carter and the rest of the crew to do eight or 10 episodes. When you're dealing with a limited-run series, there should be no higher priority than a well-written, focused story.

Well ... and aliens. This is "The X-Files," after all.

Fox Might Give Us a New Season of the X-Files

FOX says it's in 'significant talks' - mmm, sounds spicy.

Jamie Loftus
August 8, 2016

Fox’s six revival episodes gave X-Files fans a collective orgasm of nostalgia, and the network might not be ready to stop just yet. Fox Entertainment president David Madden the network was actively working to bring Mulder and Scully back to the screen for another season.

“There are significant talks with all three principals,” Madden said at TCA on Monday, referring to X-Files creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

Sure, David, we all want that, and I’m sure you get a nice cut of the profits yourself, but what are the chances of it actually happening?

Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden piped up, saying she wishes the company could have produced more episodes in the revival.

“We would have liked to do more in the first place, but there were limitations,” Walden said. “Gillian lives in the U.K. David in New York and Los Angeles. The show shoots in Vancouver. So it’s about coordinating a time when they can carve time to be in Vancouver.”

The situation is already complicated, as Anderson currently has an ongoing commitment to the Starz adaptation of American Gods. And even though fans were overjoyed to get more of their favorite show, the first revival season got a lukewarm reception from diehard fans of the series’ original run from 1993-2002. According to Walden, Fox would be thrilled to get between eight to ten new episodes locked given the scheduling complications, but future episodes would be able to jump straight into the action. The original revival had to re-establish and fill in a lot of the original show’s mythology, which a second season wouldn’t have to do.

“It was introduced to new viewers,” Walden said of the 2016 X-Files season, “and (the writers) had the challenge of filling in the mythology. Going forward, there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series.”

All you can do now is start whispering sweet nothings to the Duchovny poster we know is taped to your ceiling and pray that Fox executives aren’t putting money above the legend of Mulder and Scully. And now, we wait.
