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.

What is Chris Carter's Millennium?

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 who used both his 'gift' and humanity against the ever increasing presence of malevolent evil within our society, towards 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 sucessfull team behind The X-Files. In sharp cutting contrast to the often ominous and violent imagery, Frank Black together with his family and professional colleagues brought a warming light into the series, set against a hauntingly emotional soundtrack by composer Mark Snow.

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.

At the recent New York Comic Con, IDW Publishing announced an upcoming miniseries adaptation of cult Chris Carter TV show "Millennium". The stories will be written by Joe Harris, who also authors IDW's "X-Files: Season 10." The comic will feature interior art by Colin Lorimer and external covers by menton3, series creator Carter will reprise his "Season 10" role as executive producer.

Joe Harris has provided an interview with Comic Book Resources in which he says "I believe our plan is to start with a five-issue series and really re-establish Frank Black, the shadowy remnants of the Millennium Group he once belonged to that turned on him, and which, we think, was dissolved, then gauge the temperature."

Asked whether Chris Cartor will be involved, Joe responded "Chris has been our 'Executive Producer', trusting my vision to shepherd these stories and characters along. He seems comfortable with me, but he's reviewing what we do and I expect I'll know if he's not happy!"
