X-Files Revival with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson!
So dreams do come true sometimes! Fox has confirmed that The X-Files, one of the most successful television series of the 1990s, will return with a six-episode limited series probably early next year. Mulder and Scully will reunite after 13 years, as both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have agreed to reprise their iconic roles.
The X-Files was a big deal in the ’90s, leading the way for shows like Fringe, Warehouse 13, Grimm, and Supernatural. The series followed FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as they investigated X-Files – or marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. It aired on Fox in the US for nine seasons, and now it’s getting a comeback.
The show will return with a six-episode limited series that will be filmed later this year. Although an airdate wasn’t announced yet, it’s expected to premiere in early 2016. According to series creator Chris Carter the show’s absence should be viewed 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,” he added.
Fingers crossed the revival will be scary, credible, and true to its main characters. Just as the show was in its glory days.
