Creator of ‘The X-Files’ announces reboot
The legendary science fiction series, ‘The X-Files’ is getting a reboot! Creator Chris Carter has recently announced that the reboot will feature David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
This exciting news comes with an even more striking announcement – the person in charge of developing it is Ryan Coogler, director of the widely popular Marvel movie, ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’.
Carter shared this surprising news on the radio show ‘On The Coast’ with Gloria Macarenko. During the interview, he stated that Ryan Coogler would be leading the development of ‘The X-Files’ with a diverse cast.
Unfortunately, Carter hasn’t shared any more details about the reboot. We’re left wondering if they will be bringing back an original character or adapting the series with a new approach altogether.
A more diverse cast
What we do know is that there will be greater diversity in the new cast. This is a logical move considering the times we’re in. Carter also mentioned that Coogler will have a lot of work ahead of him as they’ve already covered a lot of territory.
As for Coogler, he has a lot on his plate with shooting ‘Wrong Answer’ with Michael B. Jordan in the lead role and the series ‘Scenes for Minors’. It’ll be interesting to see how high-priority ‘The X-Files’ reboot is for Coogler.
A history of ‘The X-Files’
The first run of ‘The X-Files’ was released in 1993 and ended in 2002. A second film was made in 2008, following the release of the first film in 1998. In 2016, it had a late tenth season, which led to an eleventh installment in 2018.
The success of ‘The X-Files’ makes it no surprise that we are getting yet another reboot. We can’t wait to see what the new series will bring and are excited to see a diverse cast taking on the classic science fiction series.
