Straight from the panel at the Television Critics Association this morning, FOX has released a sizzle reel for the upcoming event series revival of “The X-Files”. Lots of new footage from the new episodes can be seen below. Six new episodes kick off with a special two-night event on Sunday, January 24th and the following day.
Speaking with The Live Feed, show creator Chris Carter has also revealed that he wrote a third film in the series on spec before Fox went ahead and greenlit the limited series: “I actually wrote a third movie, just because I was interested in the idea of where that might go.”
Did he repurpose the script for the series? “I let my wife read the third movie, and she said ‘I think not for television.'” Would he pursue it after this series? “I’m waiting for Fox to come back and ask for more. Then we’ll talk about it.”
