Fox announced its schedule for the upcoming 2016-2017 season today, and notably absent was another edition of The X-Files, which was revived earlier this year after 13 years off the air. During the network's upfront press call, however, Fox TV Group executives offered fans some hope that the series may still return for another season.
Speaking on interest by the creator and cast, it was noted that Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson were all up for another installment. Speculation for a return time frame was even stated, with the 2017-2018 season tentatively eyed for new episodes.
For now, though, fans will have to patiently wait until a final decision is made. And that news might not come for some time. Stay tuned...
