X-Files Creator Chris Carter Returns With The After

X-Files creator Chris Carter is back from his extended hiatus with The After, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama for Amazon inspired in part by Dante's Divine Comedy (or just The Inferno). Like the great Italian bard's work, which consists of 99 cantos, Carter would like to do 99 episodes even though Amazon has only ordered eight. The plan is to release the show in four two-hour installments in early 2015 unlike Jill Soloway's Transparent, which will be released in its entirety in late September. Recappers, you can all breathe a sigh of relief.
