James Wong, Glenn and Darin Morgan all returning for The X Files season 11

Good news for fans of The X Files, the upcoming eleventh season will be bringing the writer of the three best episodes from last year (i.e. the non-Chris Carter ones. Glen Morgan, who wrote Home Again, will be writing two of the 10 episodes, while fan favourite (and Glen's brother) Darin Morgan, who penned the excellent Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster will also be writing another episode.

As for James Wong, Den of Geek US has confirmed that the writer of Founder's Mutation (a story that could be well served by a sequel) will be writing and directing two episodes too. He told Den of Geek...

“I have one I am excited to do. I talked it over with Chris and everybody is on board and we’re going ahead with that, but the other one I am still noodling and figuring out what I should be doing.

“You know, we want do to mythology stories and stories that connect with each other, but I think we’re still interested in doing stand alone stories. I think the second episode I do will be more of a standalone story, and the first one will have some connections to the mythology, but not as connected as Chris’s episodes.”


Asked what season 11 might entail and what faces might return after the cliffhanger in My Struggle II, Wong added...

“We're still finalizing that. I know that’s talk about people [who] might do additional scripts, but I don’t think we’re set with what those surprises might be. Everybody wants guys that have worked on it to be back and whom we’d love to work with, but everybody is so busy, you know. It’s really hard to get people [to commit]. I’m juggling a couple of things with American Horror Story, and this, so I can understand why people would be reluctant. Like, Vince [Gilligan] might be too busy, we’re seeing if Howard [Gordon] is available, but it’s hard."


Season 11 is due to debut early 2018. More news on The X Files as we have it.
