With X-Files Returning, Carter Reflects On Show's Legacy
One of America’s most beloved TV series is coming back for the first time since its original nine-season run came to a close in 2002. The X-Files is back for a six-episode miniseries starting Sunday night, returning David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully to the world of the paranormal and conspiracy. The last time they played the characters in any form was in a 2008 movie.
The X-Files became a breakout hit during its initial run for show creator Chris Carter nearly a quarter-century ago when it debuted. We spoke with Carter in 2014 — as you’ll hear in the interview, the wheels were already turning for a reunion then.
