THE X-FILES Should Come Back On the Air With Mulder and Scully

David Duchovny And Gillian Anderson

Following the success of their “24” limited series, Fox has announced that they plan on bringing back another iconic series, “The X-Files”. This was confirmed by Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman, who says that the network is in talks for a new installment of Chris Carter’s cult supernatural drama.

Fellow chairman Dana Walden also stated that they are in the logistics phase. That means they’re looking at windows when the key X-Files players, creator Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, are available. Anderson is currently set to appear in Season 3 of NBC’s “Hannibal,” but the status of Carter’s drama The After at Amazon Studios (which recently got cancelled) has sped up their discussions somewhat.

At the moment, there is no confirmed release date for the series, but it sounds likes Fox wants to do this the right way and bring back everyone and everything that made the show so special.

Duchovny and Anderson played secret FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully who investigated paranormal/supernatural/alien activity. The show ran from 1993 to 2002 and became a cult hit, thanks to the sci-fi storylines and chemistry between the two leads.

The X-Files also spawned two movies – The-X Files in 1998 and X Files: I Want to Believe in 2008. I loved that film, but I think a TV series might be the better route to go, if you want to end the series the right way.
