It’s been a while since we’ve heard about the return of The X-Files for an 11th season and the show’s doing what it has been doing for quite a few decades now: create mystery after mystery. While Chris Carter said that he hopes to start shooting an 11th season in Vancouver in Spring 2017 - this certainly doesn’t mean this is actually going to happen - there are still talks about schedules going on with our main characters Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.
One thing we do know is that Chris Carter hopes to do 8 or 10 episodes this time compared to the 6-episode run of season 10, I’m just not sure how they want to do that. One day negotiations are going well, the other day there are complications. We don’t really now what is actually going to happen.
What’s interesting is that rumors about a different cast have been popping up? No idea where that came from but I know that I don’t like it. The idea seems to be time traveling.
This means there might be a younger Dana Scully and Fox Mulder cast. While I’d be ok with that for, let’s say, one episode I truly wouldn’t like this to be a permanent thing because there are only two people in this world fit for Scully and Mulder, namely Gillian and David. If we get an 11th season it can’t possibly anyone but these two.
What do you think? I’ve just been wondering who they might consider as young Dana Scully and Fox Mulder…
There is still that rumor of a third X-Files movie. Chris Carter has been mentioning it and I’d rather take that movie instead of an 11th season with different people. This just doesn’t seem right, to be honest, in the end I’d be happy just any kind of reliable information.
In the meantime you have 10 seasons of The X-Files to binge-watch. Have fun!
