X-Files is so well finished (apparently)
After eleven seasons, the X-Files might be over for good.
The fans will still have to shed a few tears at the end of a great and interminable history. Arrested in 2002, returned to the film in a second film in 2008, then revived in 2015, the cult series the X-Files seems to be well and truly finished after eleven seasons.
The president of the Fox, Michael Thorn, said that the series of Chris Carter, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in the skin of Mulder and Scully, would not – at least not in the near future.
Mulder, Scully, 1993
A statement that is a new episode in the latest news of the fantasy series, born in 1993, and to upset a television landscape so bleak. In January of last year, Gillian Anderson was announced that she had definitively finished with the role of Dana Scully, implying that the future of the series was threatened. In the aftermath, Dana Walden, Fox Television, confirmed that the end was so near.
But in march, the creator Chris Carter refused to see the conclusion of its work, and announced that X-Files would continue to live, even without one of its main characters. Obviously, the Fox was not convinced.

Beyond the absence problem of a character who has finally been the heart of the series (Gillian Anderson appeared in 217 episodes, compared with 193 for David Duchovny, almost absent in seasons 8 and 9), there is the issue of the hearings, very average for the season 11. If the return of the duo of investigators in a season 10 was much interested, their re-return in a season 11 was much quieter.
And most importantly, this season 11, which has hovered between the middle and the poor, recalled that the formula X-Files began seriously to turn in a circle. Given the competition and current dose of old brands recycled for the wrong reasons, not sure that the desire to put away Mulder and Scully in the closet is not a noble idea.
