Millennium - This Is Who We Are

Millennium's criminal profiler Frank Black. Welcome to Millennium - This Is Who We Are, driven by a passionate appreciation of creator Chris Carter's critically acclaimed Millennium TV series.

Millennium was an award winning, hour-long apocalyptic drama series produced in 1996, that challenged the established boundaries of network television at that time. The beautifully shot, dark drama starred actor Lance Henriksen as series protagonist Frank Black, a retired FBI criminal profiler expert who used both his 'gift' and his humanity against the ever increasing presence of malevolent evil within our society, as the world approached the brink of the year 2000.

Throughout 67 episodes spread across 3 seasons, Millennium was at all times thoughtfully and passionately written, filmed and directed by Ten Thirteen Productions, the successful team behind The X-Files. In sharp cutting contrast to the often ominous darkness and violent imagery, Frank Black together with his family and professional colleagues brought a warming light into the series' darkness, set against the backdrop of a hauntingly beautiful emotional soundtrack by composer Mark Snow. Learn more about the show from our Millennium Series Introduction.

We've made so many good friends along the way, and sadly, we've also lost some good friends too.

My thanks and sincere appreciation to all of our forum community members.

Millennium and X-Files creator Chris Carter.

Entertainment news website Deadline have recently published an interesting interview with Millennium creator, Chris Carter. Although primarily focused on The X-Files due to the forthcoming eleventh season due in 2018, Chris was able to add some thoughts on Millennium which are always welcomed by appreciative fans of both series.

Just prior, Chris had discussed where he felt The X-Files fitted into the Donald Trump era, where "... we're looking at a world where now truth is thrown out the window and conspiracy is now seemingly the center. Everything's been turned on its head and that's an interesting time to be telling X-Files stories."

DEADLINE: In such times, are there other shows you'd like to resurrect?

CARTER: I think Millennium would be a show that would have more life in it but no one's ever spoken seriously to me about that.


CARTER: Yeah, I always feel that there are more of those stories to tell as well. After three seasons, we pulled the plug on that show but the ratings were still very good so I think that there is a new approach to that show building on the solid foundation that was already there.

Millennium print advert for the first episode, Pilot.

Tonight, Millennium and more importantly it's legion of fans and enthusiasts throughout the world celebrate the show's 20th anniversary. The episode Pilot, sometimes referred to as '2000', was first broadcast on the 25th October, 1996.

For those who don't know, Millennium was a critically acclaimed, award winning hour-long apocalyptic drama series, which was produced by the Fox Television Network in the United States between 1996 and 1999. It was based on an original idea by Chris Carter, who of course also created The X-Files and was produced by Carter's Ten-Thirteen Productions.

Millennium's influence on the television industry has been discernible so often throughout the last two decades, especially in terms of what could and should get past the US network censors and the show has influenced many similary themed series and films about criminal profilers, serial killers and the nature of what we perceive to be evil.

For me personally, there will only ever be the original and best, the series that grabbed my attention and imagination, and of course that influenced me to start and run this website for the last fifteen years, which in itself has introduced me to so many wonderful people over the years.

However you choose to celebrate Millennium's twentieth anniversary, or whether you are just watching the series for the very first time, please do take a moment to let us know in our community forums.

Meanwhile, thank you Chris Carter, the incredibly talented cast and crew of Ten Thirteen Productions and of course Twentieth Century Fox for together creating one of the finest, most rewarding and in depth pieces of television ever to have been produced.
