When XFN came to exist, back in 2007, no one really seriously considered when it would be our own “finale.” No one really understood the word “cancellation” when it came to this website and everything that we do. We just had a goalpost that we kept moving further and further away.
Mostly because in so many ways, XFN outgrew its initial purpose. We wanted to promote the show and bring it back for a third movie - or what became additional seasons - but that soon changed. We responded to the needs of many voices that came out of the fandom, and stayed because… we just love what we do. No one takes on a mission like this one for eleven years if you only have lukewarm feelings about it.
According to FOX, the door of Mulder and Scully's basement office is staying closed. FOX television CEO and chairman Gary Newman told reporters "there are no plans to do another season at the moment," despite it being a "great show for the network." After the Season 11 finale, XFN asked Chris Carter about another season and at the time he told us "never say never." But with no plans from the network, and continued confirmation from Gillian Anderson that she's hanging up Scully's hat, it may be time to truly put a dimmer on that afterglow.
David Duchovny is kicking off a busy week of promotions for his new novel "Miss Subways," which comes out on Tuesday, May 1. "Miss Subways" is the story of Emer, who lives in New York City. She's described as "just a woman living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on?" The story is inspired by the Irish myth of Emer and Cuchulain.
David's press tour started Monday with an appearance on "Live with Kelly and Ryan." He also took questions during a live book signing on YouTube. You can get a signed copy of the book from that event here. David's next TV appearance will be Monday night on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" at 11:35 pm ET on CBS. He will also be on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on Thursday, May 3, at 12:35 am.
