New sci-fi series from X-Files creator Chris Carter back on track

It’s been almost a year since we’ve heard anything about Chris Carter’s new apocalyptic sci-fi series The After, but now it sounds like the project has finally found a home.

After passing on that uneven Zombieland show, is gearing up for another round of potential pilots — and the X-Files creator’s long-delayed series is near the top of the list. Fingers crossed, sci-fi fans.

Little is known about the plot, other than that it is “set at the moment of the apocalypse” and would be in the “same vein” as The X-Files. That’s not much to go on, but it’s more than enough to pique our interest.

Though The X-Files made him a sci-fi legend, Carter has stayed relatively quiet in recent years. He had another potential series fail to make it out of development, and The After was announced almost a year ago and has been bouncing around looking for a backer ever since.

Here’s hoping Amazon is the right place, because we’d love to see what Carter could come up with.

Would you like to see Carter back on the small screen, or do you wish he’d just focus on trying to make X-Files 3 a reality?
