X-Files: The New Spinoff!
The X-files follows FBI agents investigate unsolved paranormal cases. FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) analyze the cases from every angle. Mulder’s belief in the supernatural and Scully’s scepticism draws the audiences. The series mainly focuses on alien abductions, the Watergate political scandal, and Kolchak: The Night Stalker.
The series originally premiered on Fox in 1993 and aired till 2002. Fox greenlit two feature films also revived the series for 2 more seasons. These aired till 2018. In 2001, Fox tried to make a comedic spin-off with Lone Gunman. The spin-off was canceled after 13 episodes. The show’s character also inspired comic books. The show is now returning to TV once more with something new in the store.
Fox and Chris Carter are creating The X-file’s animated comedy spin-off. The animated series is titled The X-Files: Albuquerque. The spin-off will follow the X-Files’ B-Team. The X-files’ B-team was an office of misfit agents tasked with the X-Files “too wacky, ridiculous or downright dopey” cases. Bento Box will animate the franchises’ new spinoff. The studio also recently animated Netflix’s Hoops.
Along with Carter, Rocky Russo, Jeremy Sosenko, and Gabe Rotter are also the spin-off’s executive producers. Russo and Sosenko also worked together on Netflix’s Paradise PD. Additionally, Rotter and Carter have worked together on Amazon series The After.
What’s The Plan?
Disney now owns Fox and it is taking advantage of the surge of animation. The franchise is 27 years old and has spanned over multiple generations. Disney is taking advantage of this and trying to give out something new to the fans. Hulu currently streams The X-files series. Most probably, the new spin-off will also be launched on Hulu as it already features the older episodes.
Supernatural series will wind up next year. The spin-off will enter at a very strategic time. The animation will give the spin-off an upper-edge. It does not have to be done with all live-action productions and also can show physical comedy.
