New “The X-Files” series in development – but completely different from what you think

“The X-Files: Albuquerque” is about the cases that even Mulder and Scully don’t feel like doing – and the whole thing is supposed to be an animated comedy series.

“The X-Files” ran from 1993 to 2002 (plus two films and two revival seasons). One would think that agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) have been confronted with the craziest of the crazy weird cases in this long time – but no, you’re wrong!

Fox is developing an animated “The X Files” comedy series, “The X-Files: Albuquerque,” which revolves around a division of pathetic FBI agents.

Something new

“The X-Files” comics already existed, but an animated series, especially designed as a comedy, would be new.

If anyone thinks that the idea behind “The X-Files: Albuquerque” is a bad joke, we can reassure the reader with the information that the series could still be called off. So far, Fox has only ordered one pilot film. The authors are Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko, known for their work on the Netflix animation series “Paradise PD” about cops who whistle at their job.

So far, Fox has only ordered one pilot film 9 movies.
