A comedy animation, derived from the classic X-Files series (The X-Files, in the original), is being developed by Fox. Titled, for now, as X-Files: Albuquerque, the series will have original creator Chris Carter linked to executive production. .
According to the information released so far, the scripts will not have Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as protagonists. Instead, the animation will focus on entirely new characters.
The synopsis foresees the presentation of a group of maladjusted agents who investigate somewhat ridiculous cases, which would be too much for the strain of the original agents. These new characters would belong to a subdivision of the X-Files and, therefore, had not been previously mentioned.
The pilot is being written by Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko, who will also serve as executive producers, alongside Gabe Rotter. The episodes will be made in the Bento Box animation studio.
For now, there is no announced release date. But the expectation is that we can soon check the production. Will the new characters be as charismatic as the old ones?
It is worth remembering that the original series was a huge success on television and remained on the air for almost 10 years, between 1993 and 2002. In addition to two derivative films, released at different times, the X-Files also won two new seasons in recent years. All of them can be checked on Amazon Prime Video and also on Globoplay.
