Does Season 9 have a SEASON or SERIES finale?[edit]

With new episodes now on TV, the current Wikipedia article on The X-Files (season 9) seems to be correct in calling that season's final two episodes the "season finale" ... or is it?

What is the preferred style when talking about this franchise? Everybody knows Chris Carter's 2016 mini-series is a sequel taking place after a passage of many years, but is this revival considered a brand new series altogether (albeit one starting with a "Season 10")? If so, then the article on Season 9 should call that season's final two episodes the SERIES finale.

Pruning[edit]

There are a few articles in the project here which I think could probably be deleted as cruft or lacking sufficient notability for their own article; I think we've been holding onto them from a time when people were freely creating things before WP:GNG really gained traction. If no one has any particular opposition to any of these, I'll probably start taking them to WP:AFD over the next week or so; most are simply articles consisting of little more than plot information and are largely redundant to more useful articles like those on larger characters or individual episodes. I'm looking at the following:

Now, some of these could probably just be redirected to better articles (Jimmy Bond to The Lone Gunmen, sources and analogues to The X-Files#Conception, Men in Black to Syndicate (The X-Files), etc), but either way I think we could stand to get rid of them. Thoughts? GRAPPLE X 15:06, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

List of guest appearances on The X-Files can definitely go, it's nothing more than a list with just primary references. List of minor The X-Files characters can be redirected to List of The X-Files characters and a possible merge of some of the notable characters. List of Monster-of-the-Week characters in The X-Files is all plot/fancruft and any useful information about those characters would be in the episode articles. Men in Black (The X-Files) can be redirected to Syndicate (The X-Files) as most of that information is redundant of the list of characters article. The X-Files sources and analogues needs to go, it doesn't have anything not already featured in other related articles (main article, season/episode articles). X-files unit is all plot/fancruft and is redundant of plot synopsis' from episode articles. And Jimmy Bond can be redirected/merged to The Lone Gunmen. I support all redirecting/merging of those articles. Drovethrughosts (talk) 20:22, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
