Animated spinoff for ‘The X-Files’ in development at Fox

The network is developing an animated comedy spin-off series tied to the show, now titled The X-Files: Albuquerque.

TV Line broke the news this morning that the network is now developing X-Files: Albuquerque, a series about a team who has to tackle the cases "too goofy" for Mulder and Scully...a odd notion, as the whole point of Mulder and Scully's jobs were to tackle the cases "too goofy" for the Federal Bureau of Investigation proper.

It's been over two years since fans of The X-Files caught up with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Report Door has reached out to Fox for confirmation.

"I can't imagine there wouldn't be more X-Files, in some shape or form", Carter said. On August 28, Fox announced their plans to bring the beloved series to a new medium.

While in the same universe as the original show, this spinoff will not feature David Duchovny's Mulder or Gillian Anderson's Scully, who were last seen in the revival seasons from a few years back.

For fans who are hoping to catch a glimpse of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, don't hold your breath as there are now no plans of them being involved. Gabe Rotter, who labored on the "X-Information" revival at Fox, will even government produce.

American broadcaster FOX is creating a animated humor based on renowned sci-fi tv show The X-Files. But it looks like Fox isn't done exploring the paranormal franchise. It's good this series is animated, though; at this point, people might just assume the X-Files are a documentary.

"X-Files" creator Chris Carter is attached to executive produce the project, with Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko attached to write and executive produce.

The X-Files: Albuquerque doesn't have a premiere date yet. The series is now in early development at Fox and is titled as "The X-Files: Albuquerque".
