Happy new year! Here is an oldie – a near-episode-length X-Files parody written and directed by @[107974612558003:274:Stefan Petrucha], the writer of the excellent early issues of the Topps XF comics! Mulder & Scully investigate the Chicken-Man.

FOX confirms: no more X-Files any time soon – an official confirmation of what we have been reposting since November. I still suppose it could happen, but not before 2018, at least. XF cliffhangers are the Sisyphus torture.

2 years ago, the XF revival was essentially announced at the Television Critics Association annual event. Today, the future looks…complicated. *IF* (and as time goes by, it’s an “if”) there are new episodes, most likely it won’t be before “Fall 2018 or [Winter] 2019”, according to FOX — i.e. 3 years later after the My Struggle II cliffhanger! And as time goes by, I believe that FOX’s patience with the Carter-DD-GA trio will decrease, and FOX’s appetite for an inevitable reboot with different people involved will increase.

The X-Files Event Series, as it’ officially called, started airing one year ago today – already! – also called “revival” and “season 10” by fans. For me this was the beginning of a period of both excitement and frustration, and some sleepless nights… How about you?

More X-Files? David Duchovny radio interview: “We are talking about doing some more. I should have some news, either yes or no, pretty soon.” So: “no” is a real possibility — far from the certainties 12 months ago!

Behind the scenes of the digital effects for last year’s X-Files: video, before/after images, interview with the folks at Image Engine! Impressive how much CGI there is on TV now, but it looks like post-production length is longer as well. Thanks to Juliane Kempe!

Duchovny reflecting on last year’s revival: he had mixed feelings about the 2016 return. “I was happy to come back and do it,” he says, “and there were some episodes that worked better than others, but I thought that six was too few. We had to find too much ground to make up, too much backstory to tell and then it ended up there wasn’t enough [story] left to do. So, I feel like the next time if we did it, we’d do more episodes. Certainly never 22 again, but more than six. It’d be a better story to tell.”

Also, the usual about more: “Very possible,” says Duchovny. “At this point it looks good, but I don’t have anything specific to tell you. But we’re all kind of crouching.”

One year since My Struggle II aired and the “event series” ended. A year since thid wreck of an episode, in terms of narration, pacing, characterization, dialogue, continuity, despite some good initial ideas and ambitious concepts. “This is the end” the tagline said, but could more episodes in the future make things more interesting?

Happy 53rd birthday Dana Scully! Here is an interview from yesterday with Gillian Anderson, where…she talks about choosing characters to portray that are as far from Scully’s as possible, and where she says she doesn’t particularly miss portraying Scully compared to many of her other roles. Scully was an important role in the past, but I think “season 11” is not a done deal yet!
