    • The X-Files

      The X-Files revival is one step closer to becoming a reality.

      Fox is close to giving an official green-light to a revival of their iconic science fiction series, which originally aired between 1993 and 2002. Per sources, the network has settled on a “short-stack” order for the revival and while the exact size of the order is yet-to-be-determined, I’m told it will be less than ten episodes (though I can’t confirm the Daily Mail’s report that it will be six). It should be stressed, however, that talks with sister studio 20th Century Fox Television are still on-going.
      As TVWise previously reported, the revival is aimed to close out the lingering storylines left by the series proper, which, much to the dismay of fans, were left unresolved by the second feature film I Want To Believe. I’m told that Fox landed on the “short order” for two reasons. The first being story requirements – a conclusion that execs came to after prolonged discussions with Chris Carter.


      The second – and an equally important one – was scheduling. The feeling was that it would be easier for the always in demand Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny to schedule a block of time to shoot the revival with a short order. The duo, who were always committed to doing more X-Files, have, sources say, agreed to reprise their roles. It is understood than an offer has also gone out to Mitch Pileggi. Other key cast members will also return.
      Still scheduling is a big factor – and one of the few remaining sticking points in getting an official pick up. The fact that Duchovny’s NBC drama Aquarius is an off-cycle Summer series helps, as does the fact that Gillian Anderson’s BBC series The Fall isn’t due to enter production on its just ordered third season until the end of this year. The hope is that production can get underway this Summer, but that is not certain at this stage.
      Beyond the cast, Chris Carter is returning to the helm, will pen the scripts and will also serve as an executive producer on The X-Files revival. I have been unable to get a clear read on Frank Spotnitz’s involvement. Sources had indicated that having him return was Carter’s preference, but he recently committed to the third season of Tandem’s Crossing Lines, which is now filming in Europe.

      An X-Files revival has been on the cards for months, with Fox finally confirming to reporters at the recent Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that they were in talks for more X-Files. “Real progress” was made in the last month, after sources previous stated in January that Carter’s camp and Fox were “far apart” on terms. The new X-Files series follows in the footsteps of another key Fox franchise: 24 - which was successfully revived with 12 episode limited series Live Another Day.
      It is hoped that the deal with the studio and other key players (including former members of the writing staff) will close soon and the X-Files revival will get that official green-light in the coming weeks. According to sources, Fox is aiming to make a “big announcement” just ahead of their upfront presentation in New York City this coming May. Representatives of both Fox and 20th Century Fox Television did not immediately respond to TVWise’s request for comment.

    • Ich habe von den Plänen schon vor ein paar Monaten das erste Mal gehört. Was habe ich Akte X damals geliebt und so bin ich mehr als gespannt, was genau sie da vorhaben!! Die Serie ist und bleibt auf ewig genial, aber genau deswegen stehe ich dem Ganzen - wie auch bei Twin Peaks - skeptisch gegenüber. Wie soll man den Erfolg von damals toppen? Das haben sie vielleicht auch gar nicht vor, aber es kann auch so unglaublich in die Hose gehen und das wäre einfach sehr schade für die Originalserie, Duchovny und Anderson.

      Revivals, Neuauflagen etc., es nervt und manche Sachen sollten unangetastet bleiben.
      Aber: Es besteht immer die Möglichkeit, dass es geil wird. Mulder und Scully nochmal wiederzusehen... ich verliere meine Objektivität. :love: Jedenfalls links liegen lassen werde ich es keinesfalls. *:D*
    • Ich sehe das wie @RedDana ich bin da sehr skeptisch.
      Sicher Reboots hat es immer gegeben, aber es nimmt momentan absolut überhand was Serien und Filme betrifft. Sind die in Tinseltown nur noch zum Wiederkauen alter Ideen fähig? Auweia.
      Da Kunst ja das Leben immtiert, und auch beeinflusst, würde ich mal sagen, wir sind da allgemein auf keinem guten Weg.

      Aber zurück zu dem X-Files, nach dem letzten grottigen Spielfilm hatte ich nicht gedacht aus der Ecke nochmal etwas zu hören, aber in den letzten Monaten kommen ja immer wieder Gerüchte auf.
      Klar würde ich mich freuen, wenn es noch ein paar Folgen geben würde, aber nur mit Scully und Mulder, nicht wieder die Vertretungsbrigarde.
      Anderseits, vielleicht sollte man die X-Akten einfach ruhen lassen. Warum den Erfolg und die Genrevorbildfunktion die die Serie hatte, ohne sie hätten wir sicher kein Supernatural *cry* , und wären alle nicht hier *;)* , durch eine nachgeschobene Serie beschädigen?

      Wie bei Twin Peaks muß man mal abwarten, was da schlußendlich dabei herauskommt. Die Erwartungen der Fans sind jedenfalls hoch, und das kann zum Problem werden. *tea*

      Emmy Award-winning Pop Culture Phenomenon

      From Chris Carter Is Back as Six-Episode Event Series

      David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to Reprise Their Roles as

      FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully

      Thirteen years after the original series run, FOX has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

      The announcement was made today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group and Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of THE X-FILES. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.

      “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

      “We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of THE X-FILES – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” remarked Newman and Walden. “THE X-FILES was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as THE X-FILES, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

      THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

    • Wie immer bin ich mal hoffnungsvoll gespannt, und hoffe das die 6 Folgen mehr Fragen beantworten, als das sie neue aufwerfen.

      Puh, nach 13 Jahren "extended commercial break" geht es weiter. Freut mich einerseits, andererseits mal sehen wie das mit den Quoten so wird, und wie das bei Leuten ankommt, die damals die Serie nicht verfolgt haben.

      New ‘X-Files’ episodes to shoot in Vancouver, Smoking Man confirms

      Nicht nur Vorreiter in diesem Genre, sondern auch hiervon: "No one ever dies on (SPN) ‘The X-Files." *:D*
      Naja, Kim Manners war auch bei Akte-X Herz und Seele der Serie. Ich bilde mir es vielleicht auch nur ein, aber als er starb, starb auch ein bisschen von dem was SPN ausgemacht hat. Es war einfach anders.

    • Hm, also gut, ich bin und bleibe skeptisch, ob die Neuauflage wieder so gut sein kann wie die (guten der) früheren Folgen. Generell schätze ich Neuauflagen, Fortsetzungen, Reboots etc. nicht so sehr, aber wenn "Mulder" und "Scully" wieder die Hauptfiguren sind und von ihren Originaldarstellern gespielt werden, sehe ich zumindest die Chance, dass es gut werden kann (hoffentlich besser als die Filme) und die Atmosphäre wieder funktioniert. Nur bitte, nicht wieder Außerirdische, es gab so viele schöne andere Themen *seufz*
