The X cast covers the seventh season of. away X-Files. It’s a season that arrives at an interesting point in the broader arc of the series where the creative team tries to prepare for the show to end without really committing to it. I partnered with Carl Sweeney, Cathy Glinski, and Kurt North to discuss the season finale, which embodies that tension perfectly.
requiem is an episode that existed in different contexts between production and broadcast. When it was shot there was every possibility that it would be the final episode of. could be X-Files always. Chris Carter wanted to use it as a launch pad for a number of spin-off films. However, its meaning shifted dramatically between filming and broadcasting. After a disastrous season, Fox had no choice but an eighth season of X-Files, and David Duchovny reached an agreement in his lawsuit against Fox. requiem went from a series finale to a season finale without changing a single setting.
