X-Files Longer Season 11 in Talks, Execs Defend Season 10 Reboot

Fox's reboot of The X-Files may not have been received warmly, but it seems that the upcoming season may have more episodes than the recently concluded season 10.

The studio is now reportedly negotiating another season for the X-Files reboot with the creator and stars of the show. The negotiations with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were announced at the Television Critics Association fall previews, TV Guide reported.

X-Files is already at the significant talks stage, so the limited run of the reboot may be extended some more.

The X-Files 2016 reboot received mixed reviews. For the most part, the studio attributed the slow start and negative reception to the fact that the series had to reset following its 14-year hiatus. Fox Entertainment President David Madden told Entertainment Weekly that the episodes featured in the first season of the reboot were fairly strong.

"I would just add that the show was off the air for a very long time and was introduced to a variety of new viewers. There was still a lot of time to cover in these six episodes so they had the challenge of filling in the mythology and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are at the start of the six episodes. I think going forward there won't be the same obligation to reset the series."

So far, it seems that Fox is already looking at a longer season 11, with 10 episodes pegged for the next X-Files season.
