Following the recent success of the the animated Star Trek spin-off, Star Trek: Lower Decks, The X-Files have once again been reopened in. The iconic franchise will get an animated spin-off. It is currently in development for FOX. This story will focus on a group of agents stationed in Albuquerque. So, it’s no wonder the show will be named The X-Files: Albuquerque.
The show will feature a group of agents who are given the cases that are too weird, ridiculous or even absurd for Mulder and Scully. Creator of the original series, Chris Carter, will return as the Executive Producer. Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko are set to write the series and are also joining as executive producers. The show will be managed by Bento Box animation, whose previous works include Bob’s Burgers and Central Park. There is a good chance the animation style will be similar to their last projects.
The original X-Files ran for 9 seasons. It returned in 2016 for a revival with two more seasons until it ended in 2018. The show starred David Duchovny as Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Special Agent Dana Scully,. They worked for the FBI and solved paranormal cases. It is currently unknown if either will reprise their roles for the animated spin-off. Little is known about the project, as no release date or casting has been announced. It will be interesting to see how this new interpretation will continue the legacy of the beloved science-fiction series.
