‘The X-Files’ Officially Returning To Fox With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson
  |  @   |  

In January it was reported that Fox was pondering bringing back some its hit shows like Prison Break, 24 (which has already been brought back once for the limited series 24: Live Another Day), and The X-Files. And yet again, no word on Firefly—even a limited series return of the Joss Whedon series would surely send fans into a frenzy.

Today comes word that at least one of those shows is indeed coming back. Fox has ordered a new limited series run of The X-Files, with show stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles and show creator Chris Carter also returning.

The X-Files return won’t be a lengthy run, sad as that will be for some fans, with only six episodes planned. But still, these limited series runs are a fun and exciting way for a show’s faithful followers to get just a little bit more of something they never thought they’d get again.

Of the announcement, Carter said:

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, added:

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again. The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

Production on the new X-Files limited series run will begin sometime this summer, with no premiere date announced at the moment.
