Twenty years ago, on March 6th, 1992, in the fictional world created by Chris Carter & Co., Mulder and Scully met on a messy basement office at the FBI headquarters in the Hoover building. We know, we know, your lives changed ever since, and so did ours. In the four years and counting that X-Files News has been online, we’ve had the pleasure of being of service to what we believe is the Best Fandom in the World.This is why, on this important date, we decided to celebrate by reopening our doors to you guys with X-Files News, version 4.0.
In all of this time, we’ve come across many of you. We’re proud to be part of this fandom and you make us want to keep working hard, not only to keep the old school fandom alive, but also to introduce the show and the movies to new fans and generations that fall in love with what the Cast and Crew of The X-Files once poured their hearts on.
It’s because of the power of this fandom that many things come to fruition, like the many X-Phile driven charity drives that have helped dozens of causes worldwide. We’ve also carried a tenacious campaign for a 3rd X-Files movie to come to life and we continue to share and create online into what has put us among the top of the most active and representative fans in the history of Television and Movies.
On Nov. 2009, Tiffany Devol and Avi Quijada took Frankenbear The Bear to his final destination and now adoptive "Father", Mr. Frank Spotnitz.
Inspired by the kindness of his namesake, after a trip 9 months long, and visiting over 20 different countries and hundreds of X-Files Fans, Frankenbear managed to create a community experience that allowed philes from over the world share a sentiment that conquered distances.
As a final perk of this feat, Frankenbear also raised awareness and gathered donations for the UCLA - Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center.
The X-Files creator Chris Carter has signed with CAA. Carter had been a longtime client of Bob Broder, first at BWCS and most recently at ICM following the agencies’ 2006 merger. After a decade away from TV, Carter last fall teamed with MRC to shop female-driven mystery thriller spec Unique, which ultimately didn’t sell.
He is attached as an executive producer to another spec, written by feature scribe Jon Bokenkamp, which is being shopped to cable networks by Sony TV. In addition to The X-Files, which ran on Fox for 9 seasons, Carter created Harsh Realm and Millennium and co-created the X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunmen. Since The X-Files ended its run in 2002, Carter has stayed largely out of the spotlight, only resurfacing to do the 2008 X-Files movie sequel and the upcoming thriller Fencewalker. There has been talk recently about a potential third X-Files movie.
X-Files News is the first official fansite dedicated to The X-Files and its' fandom. We are authorized by 20th Century Fox and FOX TV to promote & inform the latest news and content related to the franchise.
