The ‘X-Files’ revival that lasted only six episodes earlier this year will apparently spawn an even longer season 11 at FOX…
FOX TV Chairman/CEO Dana Waldern said at the network’s TCA summer press tour today (via TV Line that an eleventh season will likely be more along the lines of eight to ten episodes and that “significant talks” are underway with Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and creator Chris Carter.
“We would have liked to have done more the first place,” said Walden about the tenth season. “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.”
With more time to plan for the new season, which will likely be in 2018, Walden said, “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.”
Waldon also said that about the talks with the talent that “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard. We’re working hard to get this done.”
