The X-Files ended its nine-season run on Fox just 13 years ago, but talks about a new TV installment started and the sci-fi hit is returning as a six-episode event series from series creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully!
Production on the event series, whose plot is not being revealed, is set to begin this summer. It is unclear if any of the famous X-Files alumni, including former exec producers Frank Spotnitz, Howard Gordon and Vince Gilligan, would be involved. 20th Century Fox TV and Carter’s Ten Thirteen Prods, which produced the original series, are back for the event series.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
Are you excited for their return?
