X-FILES News, CW Finale Dates, Dr Who Plus More TV News 050217

X-Files got its eleventh season renewal order from Fox and to be honest, I'm not sure why. The eleventh season will be a 10-episode run executive produced by Chris Carter, and will be starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Despite my dour take on the show, when it was aired after a 14-year absence, it was a highly anticipated series and many folks tuned in. In fact, it pulled in 16 million viewers across multiple platforms and was ranked as the No. 2 drama on the broadcast spectrum. But I had issues.

First up, some of the marketing hinted that we would be seeing the Peacocks again. And we did not. We were promised something new and refreshing and we got the same old 'chase our tails' conspiracy theories while Mulder continued to act the ass and never tell Scully where he was going or what he was up to.

And when they ended the short season with the overly-tired cliched ending of Scully on a bridge, looking up in to a mysterious bright light overhead and I was thinking "WTF?" After all this time. that's all you could come up with Carter?

So you tell me, was it any good for you or did it feel like the same old familiar stories that helped it lose TV ratings over the years to the point of cancellation?

Anyway, production kicks off in the summer of 2017 with an air date somewhere during the 2017-2018 TV season.
