'The X-Files' Season 11: Extra Episodes Planned? 'Six Is Too Few,' Says Duchovny [VIDEO]

Did you think the revival was too short? David Duchovny dishes on hopes for 'The X-Files' season 11.

The truth is still out there, and The X-Files David Duchovny wants to spend more time seeking it out.

Last winter, Fox breathed new life into Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully's (Gillian Anderson) '90s quest into the paranormal. Now, fans are dying for more - and so is Duchovny.

With an incredibly successful six-episode revival to build on, series creator Chris Carter is trying the round up the cast for part 2. As much as the actors want to suit up once more, it's a bit like herding cats.

"We are talking about it, and like before, it's a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it," Duchovny told TV Insider. "Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won't take that long."

Although season 10 only consisted of six episodes, season 11 will hopefully come equipped with a larger order. Short seasons are highly attractive to actors at the moment - just look at the cable landscape - there are those who believe X-Files could benefit from a few extra hours. Frankly, we're inclinded to agree.

"I think there were too few episodes," Duchovny mused. "Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we've got to figure out something right in between."

Sadly, it doesn't look as if we'll get to see the Mulder and Scully back in action until 2017. "My Struggle II" ended with a massive cliffhanger, but, after waiting 10 years for those iconic flashlights to crisscross the screen once more, a year should be chump change for diehards.

"I can tell you that Chris and David and Gillian would all like to do more of these, and certainly the network and studio would love to do more," Fox Television Group chairman Gary Newman said, according to IndieWire. So we feel encouraged by that. It shouldn't be anything you anticipate before the 2017-2018 season."

Guess we'll have to content ourselves with scanning the night skies for UFOs in the meantime.

David Duchovny owns up to one major flaw in 'X-Files' season 10

By Chris Eggertsen @HitFixChris | Wednesday, Jun 15, 2016 7:32 PM

One of the most common critiques of The X-Files season 10 was that the show's creative team tried cramming too much plot into too few episodes -- and series star David Duchovny couldn't agree more.

"I think there were too few episodes," Duchovny told TV Insider in an interview to promote the new season of his Manson Family drama Aquarius. "Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between."

Judging from recent interviews with the show's core creative team, the decision to produce an abbreviated season 10 appears to have sprung from extended contract negotiations with the two lead actors, particularly Gillian Anderson; in an interview with Variety in January, the actress noted that the shorter time commitment was a major factor in getting her on board:

“It was only at the point that we were having conversations about six or eight (episodes of 'X-Files') that I would even, or could even, consider it,” she says. “I don’t think it took that much convincing once that became a reality.”

Back in May, Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden told reporters that Anderson, Duchovny and X-Files creator Chris Carter were "on board" for another season, and it seems Duchovny, at least, is willing to sign on for more than the six episodes he committed to the last time around. It remains to be seen whether Anderson is open to doing the same, but getting her on board may take a little more persuading. As she told the Guardian prior to the season 10 premiere: “When we used to do the series, I had no life, and I didn’t want to experience that again with three kids. That was the bottom line really.”

What David Duchovny Would Change About The Next Season Of The X-Files

By Laura Hurley
26 minutes ago



Fans of The X-Files have had a pretty grand year in 2016. Mulder and Scully returned to the small screen for the first time in more than a decade to do some fresh investigations into the paranormal. The big return was originally touted as a Season 10 miniseries event, but the huge success has meant that Fox is open to more X-Files in the future. The only real sour note about all things _X _- that is, aside from the excruciatingly frustrating cliffhanger in the Season 10 finale - was that there were only six new episodes. According to star David Duchovny, the low episode count is something that would be worth changing for a Season 11.

And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we've got to figure out something right in between.

David Duchovny's reveal to TVInsider that he'd be game for more than six episodes of another season of The X-Files is a definite reason for fans to get excited about what's in store for the future of the series. Duchovny previously said he didn't think he or co-star Gillian Anderson would be up for a season of 20+ episodes, so his pitch for more than six but less than twenty-two sounds just about right. Duchovny has admitted that he had a hard time slipping back into some aspects of Mulder's character after being away for so long. It's encouraging to know that he's willing to continue to reprise Mulder for more episodes in the future.

Of course, David Duchovny wanting more than six episodes doesn't mean that we'll be getting more than six episodes. In fact, there's no saying if and/or when we might be getting any more episodes at all. Fourteen years passed before the stars could align to reunite Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and creator Chris Carter for another go at television. Anderson has expressed reluctance to hop back on the X-Files train again due to the fact that her life is currently based in London. A commute between Canada and the U.K. isn't one that any actress would likely want to make on a regular basis, and I personally wouldn't blame her if she still harbored some bitterness at being offered only half of what Duchovny was set to be paid for Season 10. She recently landed a role in the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, so she'll certainly be busy.

The X-Files obviously wouldn't work without both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on board. If Seasons 8 and 9 of the original run of the series are proof of anything, it's that the partnership of Mulder and Scully is what sparks the real magic of The X-Files. Hopefully, the two actors will be able to line up their schedules in a way that will bring a longer Season 11 onto our screens sooner rather than later. I'd frankly settle for a half-hour special if it meant resolution to the crazy Season 10 cliffhanger, but Duchovny's pitch for more than six new episodes sounds much better.

David Duchovny Says Another ‘X-Files’ Season Needs More Episodes

Kevin Fitzpatrick | 25 minutes ago


FOX

For all the anticipation going into FOX’s X-Files revival, few would argue that the awkward balance of mythology and stand-alone episodes over six hours made it difficult to gain much traction. Time will tell if Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny manage to coordinate for an eleventh season revival, though Duchovny at least believes the next round would need more than six episodes to do right.

Where previously we’d heard from showrunner Chris Carter that he and FOX had ideally envisioned more than the six episodes Duchovny and Anderson ended up available for, Duchovny spoke to TVInsider of the potential to film additional episodes, especially to resolve that notable cliffhanger. In addition to his work on NBC’s Aquarius, the erstwhile Fox Mulder believes a larger number of episodes could ideally recapture that ‘90s magic:

We are talking about [Season 11], and like before, it’s a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it. Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won’t take that long. And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.

Just last month, FOX boss Dana Walden updated on the series that nothing came together in time for 2016’s development cycle, though the interim year might bring about the necessary discussions:

I believe everyone is on board to do another installment of the show … Hopefully, this time next year we will have more news.

Duchovny himself made the point that six episodes took long enough to assemble, so might a higher episode order place additional X-Files even further into the future? Would an extended run even raise the same anticipation, given the first revival’s struggle?

The X-Files: David Duchovny Says Season 10 Had ‘Too Few’ Episodes

   By Marc N. Kleinhenz 1 min ago

After nine seasons and two feature films spread out across a 15-year period, The X-Files was believed to be dead, leaving many a plot thread dangling from its roughly 206 hours of ever-more-convoluted mythology – no small matter, as the entire series was heading to an all-out alien invasion on December 22, 2012. (For a full explanation see our complete and exhaustive primer.) Then, Fox rescued the show from its eight-year oblivion with a six-episode “event series” earlier in 2016, which X-Files creator and showrunner Chris Carter promised would take the narrative in entirely new directions while still paying homage to the past.

This retooled approach to the mythology seems to have been successful: Season 10 broke ratings records for the cable channel and will more than likely result in yet another small round of episodes, probably sometime in late 2017 or early 2018. However, series star David Duchovny (Special Agent Fox Mulder) wants to tinker with the number of installments to find the perfect storytelling balance.

Talking with TV Insider, the actor first said that getting season 11 done will require bringing “the three principal people” – that’s him, co-star Gillian Anderson [Dana Scully], and Carter – together “for a significant amount of time to shoot it.” Then he moved on to the crux of the matter:

And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.

This comment seems to be somewhat ironic, considering that it was Duchovny’s complaints of his workload being too great that first led him to gradually leave the original television run (throughout the final two seasons). Then it became a consideration for the event series’s small episode pickup – though he does still acknowledge his same sentiment that 22 episodes is “far too many” for a season. Plus, as TV Insider points out, Anderson has additionally stated that the smaller episode number was crucial to her signing on to the new season.



But it’s nonetheless an accurate reflection of the fact that Carter and company perhaps bit off a little more than they could chew in terms of the overarching throughline of season 10. Across this year’s scant six chapters, Mulder and Scully were brought back into the FBI fold (after having left it back in 2001 and ’02, respectively) and discovered that the impending alien colonization was merely an elaborate cover-up for a far greater government conspiracy. Plus, the series brought back the show’s signature villain (CGB Spender [William Davis], perhaps better known as the Cigarette-Smoking Man) and introduced even more far-reaching twists and turns – not to mention The X-Files’s biggest cliffhanger ending across its entire 23-year run.

Having a greater canvas to work with – season 10 consisted of just two mythology installments and four standalones – would allow more time to explore this new narrative status quo. But, then again, it might also allow Carter and his reassembled writing staff to raise even more questions than provide definitive, tangible answers. Especially if Fox is interested in producing more X-Files mini-seasons every other year or so. Maybe there’s something to be said with sticking to the bare minimum, especially in keeping the standalone episodes as polished and classic as possible.

We’ll keep you updated on The X-Files’s season 11 as more information becomes available.

David Duchovny on The X-Files return: There could be more than 6 episodes says actor

By Ruchinka Upadhyaya

FBI Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder in The X-FilesFox

After a successful six-episode run of The X-Files miniseries in January on the Fox network, fans are wondering whether the show would return with another season. David Duchovny who plays agent Fox Mulder has intrigued fans after he teased that the show could return with more than six episodes.

He actor told TV Insider, "We are talking about it, and like before, it's a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it. Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won't take that long."

The actor shared that the new season may feature more than six episodes. "And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we've got to figure out something right in between," he added.

The finale episode of the miniseries titled, My Struggle II, ended in a major cliffhanger. A mysterious UFO appeared in the middle of a crowded highway, and a spotlight emerged pointing directly at agent Dana Scully [played by Gillian Anderson]. Also, Mulder's fate was not revealed after he was infected with the Spartan virus.

Previously, creator Chris Carter had teased that The X-Files would return with season 2. He told TV Line: "Fox owns this show. I can't imagine, with the ratings that we've got and the way we ended this season, that there won't be more X-Files. They will find a way to get that done. Because I spoke about it briefly with [Fox CEO] Dana Walden today, so there's an appetite there and... a chance certainly to find how we're gonna get ourselves off this precipice."

Fox entertainment president David Madden also hinted at the show's return. Speaking to Variety he said, "We said before it aired that we would love to do more, and we are over the moon with the performance. So far, the response has been really encouraging."

Madden further added, "We haven't talked to the talent yet about season 2 in any more definitive way than we had prior to airing the show, but certainly, it seems like there's an audience responding to the show that would love to see more episodes."

David Duchovny knows the X-Files revival’s problem: Not enough of it

By Alex McCown @alexm247
Jun 16, 2016 10:30 AM


(Photo: Ed Araquel/Fox)

There was some real satisfaction to be gained from watching the new six-episode revival of The X-Files, especially if you made it to the third installment, which can arguably take its place in the pantheon of all-time great episodes of the supernatural horror series. But there were also some clunkers—namely, the first and last episodes, which bookended an otherwise sharp return with some ham-fisted groaners. Particularly noticeable was how quickly it churned through a massive, earth-shaking storyline, breezing through characters, subplots, and a global pandemic in roughly the amount of time it takes to say, “Did we really need to shoehorn in an Annabeth Gish cameo?”

Not to worry: David Duchovny has heard your criticisms, and he’s got just the solution: more X-Files. In a red-carpet interview with HitFix promoting the next season of his wobbly NBC drama Aquarius, the actor discussed the need to add further episodes, were the series to continue with another limited run next year. “I think there were too few episodes,” he said, probably right before hopping onstage to perform some good old-fashioned blues. “22 is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.” (14. The number right in the middle of 22 and six is 14. Apparently math is not one of Duchovny’s many talents.) Given that Gillian Anderson expressly wanted the shortened season, it’s unclear at present how many episodes a season 11 would entail, but one thing seems certain: They won’t be trying to screw anyone salary-wise this time around.

The X-Files: “We Are Talking” Says David Duchovny

by Regina Avalos, June 17, 2016


Featureflash Photo Agency / Shutterstock.com

With season 10 of The X-Files released to DVD this week, fans are wondering more about season 11 of the FOX series. Chris Carter spoke about the future of the series in a recent interview, and he is ready to take on the project once a schedule can be figured out.

David Duchovny also spoke about The X-Files in an interview about the release of his NBC series, Aquarius. Fans only need to wait for the series to return. He said the following to TV Insider:

“We are talking about it, and like before, it’s a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it. Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won’t take that long. And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.”

For now, fans of David Duchovny can see him on NBC this summer in Aquarius. Do you want more of The X-Files on FOX? Tell us what you think.

The X-Files’ season 11: David Duchovny wants more than six episodes




We stated recently that we are still very much in a waiting game to figure out precisely what the future for “The X-Files” is going to be; for now, what we do know is that we’re still waiting. It’s not going to happen over the course of this coming TV season, but maybe it could take place for late 2017 or early 2018 … for now. There is still so much time for things to change!

What we do know for certain is that star David Duchovny would like to be a part of the show for a little bit longer than the six episodes that were in season 10. Take a look at what he had to say in a new interview with TVInsider:

“We are talking about it, and like before, it’s a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it. Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won’t take that long. And I think there were too few episodes. Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we’ve got to figure out something right in between.”

Personally, we feel like the magic number is really somewhere around 10, since that marks a great opportunity for us to get some unique standalone episodes and a larger story that can last longer than two, which is what we had with the somewhat-convoluted “My Struggle.” The whole point of this revival is to make it feel like an event, so any number above this would fee like too much.
