For all of the good The X-Files has done for genre television, the hit show also problematically handled issues such as rape, gender, sexuality and cultural stereotypes. But hey, that's why it's our Problematic Fave.
We’ve entered the long wait for a potential new season of The X-Files, but in the meantime, we’ll have two brand new tie-in novels to keep us busy. The twist? It’ll follow teenage Mulder and Scully. So, how does that work?
Fans were a bit mixed on the quality of the recent X-Files revival miniseries, but one thing’s for certain — the ratings were actually pretty good. So Fox is keen to keep the series alive for at least another year.
Fans were understandably bummed when Fox’s up-front presentations for the new season didn’t include news on a new season of The X-Files, but don’t worry — Mulder and Scully are almost certainly coming back, eventually.
Whew, boy. The long-awaited revival of The X-Files proved a ratings hit for Fox, and creator Chris Carter definitely stuck to his classic formula when it came to the miniseries. Case in point: that latest season (series?) finale.
With whispers of a second revival season already rumbling, a new series of young adult novels are heading the opposite direction with The X-Files — back in time. That’s right: Get ready to meet teenage Mulder and Scully.
