The FBI Almost Cancelled The ‘X-Files’ Because It Was Too Close To The Truth

Fictional FBI agents Mulder and Scully faced mutants, aliens, and all matter of paranormal scary things on a weekly basis on “The X-Files.” The show was a huge hit for Fox network, one that’s still ongoing, even though the series had a 14-year break.

While this cult show is considered science fiction, show runner and creator Chris Carter explained that during 1993, when the show was about to air, the FBI was truly concerned over their content, and gave him a very weird and paranoid phone call. 

Via The Huffington Post: 

“I can tell you this: When I wrote the [1993] pilot, I called the FBI to do some research, and they were nice enough, but didn’t really give me the time of day. Then, all of a sudden, as we got close to airing, the FBI called and said, ‘Who are you and what are you doing?’ And for a second, I thought it was going to be the long arm of the law coming in to shut me down.”

Carter explained that after that phone call he became kind of close to the feds, who were known as the unofficial fans of The “X-Files.” When it comes to his experience with the supernatural, Carter claims that even though he’s never seen a UFO or had an alien visitation, he still wants to believe. Very cute, but are aliens real or not? Just tell us.
