The X-Files David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson

In January it was reported that Fox was pondering bringing back some its hit shows like Prison Break, 24 (which has already been brought back once for the limited series 24: Live Another Day), and The X-Files. And yet again, no word on Firefly—even a limited series return of the Joss Whedon series would surely send fans into a frenzy.

Today comes word that at least one of those shows is indeed coming back. Fox has ordered a new limited series run of The X-Files, with show stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles and show creator Chris Carter also returning.

Back To Frank BlackBack To Frank Black
A Return To Chris Carter’s Millennium
Edited By Adam Chamberlain & Brian A. Dixon
Introductions by Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz, and Chris Carter
Fourth Horseman Press
Release Date: October 15, 2012
Cover Price: $28.99

One of my favorite television shows of all time is Millennium. Created by Chris Carter following his success with The X-Files, Millennium follows former FBI profiler Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) journeying into the darker recesses of society as he tracks down criminals as a law enforcement consultant for the shadowy Millennium Group. The series zoned in on the dichotomy of light and dark / good and evil in society at the time, and in retrospect was a watershed moment in television for the abundance of procedurals and darker shows that would follow in a post-9/11 world.

After three seasons, the show came to an end, canceled by Fox, and leaving fans wondering what happened to Frank Black. In the many years that have followed, the fans of Millennium have never forgotten the series – and neither has Lance Henriksen, who has stated many times his hopes for a Millennium movie.

And that’s where Back To Frank Black comes in.

Lance Henriksen Wants ‘Millennium’ Movie

Lance Henriksen Wants Millennium Movie

Out of the realm of television from the 1990s, Chris Carter‘s Millennium has to be my favorite. An offshoot from The X-Files, the show focused on Frank Black – played by Lance Henriksen – working for a group known only as the Millennium Group, who consults the FBI and local law enforcement on odd crimes and serial killers. I’ve often made the case for the possibility of a Millennium movie, continuing from where the show left off – and now Henriksen echoes those sentiments of the cult following of the series.

Through press appearances for the upcoming animated series of TRON: Uprising, Henriksen let the cat out of the bag to Coming Soon about his hopes for a Millennium film.

X-Files: I Want To Believe DVDsX-Files: I Want To Believe
Directed by Chris Carter
Starring Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Amanda Peet, Alvin “Xzibit” Joiner
Fox Home Entertainment
Release date: December 2, 2008

Okay folks, it’s confession time: I have never been a fan of The X-Files. I have seen a few episodes of the series and I really enjoyed the first theatrical feature from 1998. But the show never caught enough of my interest to hook me full time during its run. I guess I just didn’t have the time. Every time I did watch though, the shows always had compelling stories and the chemistry between stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson was undeniably perfect. Plus I never had a problem following the intricate narratives despite all the conspiracies and complications the show’s writers would throw into the mix. If you were willing to open your mind and pay attention to what was going on, be it little moments that occur in the shadows or cryptic statements characters would intone to one another, then you were amply rewarded. It was refreshing to have a show like The X-Files on the air especially since the network responsible for its inception has always seemed indifferent to bold, thought-provoking programming. One of the previous decade’s most enduring pop culture phenomenons, The X-Files has lost little of its impact in the years following its last episode. Some questions were answered while many others were left hanging in the air. The success of the show paved the way for many fast-canceled imitators and programs like Alias, Firefly, Lost, and Heroes that would continue (to an extent of course) to carry the torch for intelligent genre television that The X-Files first fired up in the autumn of 1993.

X-FilesThe X-Files: I Want To Believe
Directed by Chris Carter
Starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly
Rated PG-13
Release date: July 25, 2008

“I can’t lose faith, Lancelot. It’s all I have left.” –Perceval from Excalibur

“How many times have we been here before, Scully? Right here. So close to the truth and now with what we’ve seen and what we know to be right back at the beginning with nothing.” — Fox Mulder from The X-Files: Fight The Future

“Let’s just say that I want to believe.” — Fox Mulder from The X-Files: I Want To Believe

The X-Files: Restoring Faith

The hedonistic glare of the Nineties is a distant memory. I remember my fervent weekly devotion to the X-Files television show. It was one of my favorite shows on network television. For me, the show was the very essence of Nineties television. In a post-Cold War landscape, it was time to turn the lens on ourselves. The show captured paranoia and conspiracy on a grand scale. The high concept pitch would have been The Parallex View meets Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

I would say the series worked very well for the first seven seasons. Why did it work? The relationship between David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson‘s Dana Scully was and will always be the core of the X-Files. Tamper with that dynamic and you do not have much to work with at all. As much as I adore every incarnation of The Avengers, it was always at its best with Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg. Yes, Anderson and Duchovny have that kind of chemistry.
