Holy Crap, The X-Files Is (Briefly) Coming Back

Holy Crap, The X-Files Is (Briefly) Coming Back

The truth is still out there, apparently. One of my favourite TV shows of all-time is returning!

Variety reports both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will return as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Series creator Chris Carter, who recently filmed a pilot for Amazon that wasn't picked up, will also return.

FOX has ordered six new episodes of The X-Files, and while production is expected to begin in Q3 2015, it's unclear when the episodes will actually air.

This is not expected to be a reboot, but it's unclear where this fits into the timeline. Plenty of questions in The X-Files mythology went unanswered after the show went off the air though.

    Last I heard it was looking extremely likely, but wasn't yet confirmed.

    Really hope this is true.

      I'm sure the truth will be... Umm... Out there... /couldn't resist.

      It's true, would have been better had Kotaku linked to the article on the Fox website:

      What planet are you on!?!?

        Doggett > Mulder

          But....but...I wouldn't be X-Files without Mulder...his sister...the whole "Why he did it" uuuuggghhh

    I thought that Dave and Gil couldn't stand each other...

      That was just cabin fever from working together for so long. Duchovny said as much a few years back.

      Also, the money is probably looking quite good for this.

    I'd probably prefer a soft type reboot at this point where they still reference some of their older content but at the same time don't directly continue on from the bloated movie\series background.

    I'd rather see hank moody meet Dana scully :)

      I'd rather see Chris Traeger meet Eddie Nero :)

    I am way more happy that The Tick live action series is getting a second series, Netflix is producing, Patrick Warburton bought the rights to the show from the owners and is back as his favorite character.

    This is awesome. My favourite TV show of all time. I don't care how, who, where or when. All I know is that I want it. Great news :)

    God damn!

    13 year old me had such a crush on Scully...
