On a conference call with reporters, Fox chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said that all parties involved want to do another installment of the show.
The trick is figuring out the schedules of stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. So Fox hopes to announce another installment of the series at their upfront presentation next year.
Essentially, they're planning on having The X-Files serve as a mid-season or late-season filler to cover any gaps that may occur when regular season shows tank and flame out (or are created by Joss Whedon and mercilessly killed off).
So we're in a holding pattern here.
This means I gotta catch up on my backlog of Season surveys during the summer.
