    Default The X-Files returns with a 6 Episode Season

    X-Files is coming back for 6 Eposides. They did a good job on the 24 revival...here's hoping they don't screw it up on X-Files. I believe....

    "The truth is out there right here: The X-Files is indeed returning to Fox, with original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their respective roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

    Fox has officially ordered a six-episode continuation of its phenomenally successful supernatural drama, to shoot this summer and (presumably) air at some point next season. (An official airdate remains TBD.)

    “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said X-Files creator Chris Carter, who will oversee the new episodes. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

    The X-Files ended its nine-season run on Fox in May 2002, but the franchise was resurrected on the big screen in 2008’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe, a follow-up to 1998’s The X-Files: Fight the Future. When last we saw Mulder and Scully in Believe, they were grudgingly helping the FBI find some missing women/bust up a bizarre, Frankenstein-like operation in Virginia. Also important to know: The bureau had pardoned Mulder for going on the lam (at the end of the series’ run), Scully had returned to her medical career, and the partners were still romantically entangled and living together.

    Duchovny will next be seen in NBC’s Charles Manson-themed drama Aquarius, while Anderson has Season 3 of Hannibal on deck. Coincidentally, the two shows will air back-to-back on Thursdays this summer. News of the X-humation comes roughly a year after Fox jump-started another one of its marquee franchises, 24, with a limited-series order. Although Live Another Day didn’t make much noise in the ratings, it was well-received by critics and fans alike.

    “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,” said Fox chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden in a statement. “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, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

    She looked pretty good on Top Gear.

    Seriously. Maybe he'll play a studly nerd. 1/2 Moody, 1/2 Mulder.

    It'll probably be just like the last X-Files movie... zero aliens, one crazy guy, and a Mulder/Scully love story. Pass!

    playing a detective (aka someone that does a job using their brains), people worry about looks. Misogyny not even once lol

    Anyway, about X Files. Christ Carter did to X Files what Lucas did to Star Wars. What they really should do is give it to a new director and writer, set the canon at Season 5 plus the Movie then pretend the rest doesn't exist. Eliminate all mention or reference to fucking Super Soldiers, bring back Cancer man, bring back the alien black oil conspiracy arc.

    Was my favorite show in the 90s, I was totally addicted to it.

    They are bringing them back? Must be a conspiracy.

    I watched her in Hannibal recently and thought she looked really good for her age. There's not way they could do a revival of this show without both Mulder & Scully...so even if she were haggard and older looking, it would be worth watching.

    They could just run with it as though it has been 13 years since the last show...so that would explain they're aging since the last season. I see no problems on that front.

    I'm looking forward to it. And Gillian Anderson is still a looker in my books.

    Awesome, my favourite show! I got to meet Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi and Robert Patrick last year at the Calgary Expo, hopefully we get them all and David back next year if this takes off. I think it's great.

    On Fox. Always been. But it wasn't because of fans want it back. The limited series is about raising the value of the existing library and making streaming services pay more for the library for people to relive X-Files before this mini-series debuts.

    Fox did the same for 24.

    THE TRUTH IS STILL OUT THERE!

    I was hooked when I watched in the 90's, I have a "I Want To Believe" UFO poster in my office, Gillian Anderson is still hot!
