Brilliant news for X-Files fans as new information regarding the show’s return to television – after the luke-warm reception to 2008’s The X-Files: I Want To Believe – has made its way online. The FX TV group chairman, Gary Newman, recently announced that there are discussion about a limited run return between the network and X-Files creator, Chris Carter. Even better news is that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are seemingly both up for returning in their role as famous Mulder and Scully.
According to Deadline, the only thing stopping a return from steaming ahead is scheduling; “Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden said that the conversations so far have been only logistical, looking at windows when the key X-Files players, creator Carter and stars Duchovny and Anderson, are available. She confirmed that a potential X-Files follow-up will star the original leading duo of Duchovny and Anderson. There have been no creative discussions yet about what that new series might be”. Getting back to television may be exactly what this franchise needs, after the disappointing movie that split both fans and critics.
