Back in January, during the TCA Winter Tour, Fox teased that talks were under way to bring back the hit sci-fi series The X-Files for an Untitled X Files Reboot. The network confirmed last week that the show is indeed returning with a 6-episode event series. We know that original stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) are reprising their roles, but no other cast members are confirmed at this time. Series creator Chris Carter recently spoke with X-Files News, saying that he has plans to bring back the rest of the original cast, including Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes), and Robert Patrick (John Doggett).
"I have ideas for everyone. Their availability is subject to their regular paying jobs. Of course, I'd like to bring everyone possible back, but it's who's going to fit into the story and who's available."
The series also spawned two theatrical movies, »
For nine years, from 1993 through 2002, Friday was the night to stay home or at the least to make sure your favorite television recorder was programmed correctly.
I’m talking about The X-Files, created by Chris Carter and which starred then relatively unknown actors David Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, an Oxford-trained behavioral psychologist, and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, an M.D. specializing in forensic medicine. Together they investigated the so-called “X-Files” of the FBI: cases that involved crimes on the margins of “normal,” paranormal activities, and UFO goings-on.
It became the Fox (no pun intended) network’s highest rated show and won numerous awards over its original lifetimes, including 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award over its run; it also received nominations and wins from the Directors Guild, the Writers Guild the Screen Actors Guild, the Television Critics Association, and the Saturn Awards. »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.
Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

Now that you've had time to digest the fact that Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are coming back in six brand-new episodes of The X-Files, let's answer some of the questions you've undoubtedly been having. Chris Carter, the show's executive producer and creator, revealed discussions about bringing The X-Files back first began in November and he's been thinking about the story pretty much ever since. While Carter told The Daily Beast there are no scripts yet, expect him to oversee them and work with past show veterans. As for when the show takes place, yes it follows the latest outing of Mulder and Scully, the second flick, The X-Files: I Want to Believe. "It'll be »
Hi, my name is Trace and I have only seen one episode of The X-Files. I know that is terrible, but when I was growing up I wasn’t allowed to watch it. Though for some reason, my mother thought it would be fine to go see The X-Files Movie in theaters with the whole family (the reasoning behind that is […] »

It’s official – The X-Files, the 90s phenomenon that ran for nine seasons, that helped launch the careers of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and made common phrases like “Trust no one” and “The truth is out there” is returning to television.
Fox are bringing back the saga after 13 years away from the small screen in a new six episode event series, to be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter. Anderson and Duchovny will reprise their roles as FBI agents Mulder and Scully.
The show, which reinvigorated the paranormal/sci-fi genre and spawned countless clones, was last seen on-screen with 2008’s feature film The X-Files: I Want To Believe, though numerous comic book outings have been released via Idw in recent years.

Just yesterday, news arrived that Fox was close to issuing a green-light for a revival of classic sci-fi series The X-Files, and now it’s official: the truth is still out there, and Mulder and Scully are making their way back to television to find it.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are both signed on to reprise their respective roles of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, characters they’ve been playing on-and-off since 1993 over the course of nine seasons and two films, in a six-part limited series. Series creator and executive producer Chris Carter is also returning in those same capacities, with production on the revival being eyed for this summer. No premiere date has been announced.
It’s expected that each episode will find Mulder and Scully investigating a different case. Carter recently stated:
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is »

Capping off days of incessant rumors and years of slowly percolating buzz, Fox made it official on Tuesday (March 24) morning: "The X-Files" is coming back to TV. The landmark sci-fi-tinged conspiracy drama, which ran 202 episodes on Fox between 1993 and 2002, will resume production in Summer 2015 on a six-episode event series. Fox will announce additional details, specifically a premiere date, later. For now, what we know is that the key pieces of the "X-Files" puzzle are all back, specifically creator and executive producer Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

The formal announcement came courtesy of Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, who also shepherded the show in their days at 20th Century Fox TV. »

Back in January, we reported that Fox is planning a revival of The X-Files with original series creator Chris Carter. Today, TV Wise is reporting that the network is close to issuing a two-season order for the revival series, with original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to return. Nothing is set in stone yet, since talks are still ongoing, but the site's source says each season will be less than 10 episodes.
The report reveals the "short stack" order was decided on for two reasons, the first being story requirements set forth by series creator Chris Carter and the second being scheduling. It is believed that it would be easier to secure David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, both of whom are still very much in demand, with a shorter order. David Duchovny's new NBC show Aquarius is an off-cycle summer series, and production won't begin on Season 3 of »

Fox is looking to include series creator Chris Carter in the next chapter and feature David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in their respective roles as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Fans may be wondering what the two stars of the series think of the potential comeback and now some light has been shed on that subject, as Duchovny recently shared his thoughts on returning to the world of The X-Files.

During the TCAs this past weekend, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman confirmed that talks are happening for an X-Files series reboot. Original series creator Chris Carter already hinted that he was involved with the project, and this past summer Gillian Anderson said she'd be down for The X-Files 3 movie. Now, speaking with USA Today, David Duchovny reveals that he is ready to return as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder as well. Only, he won't be able to do a full season.
[I'm] more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again with (co-star) Gillian (Anderson) and (series creator) Chris (Carter)."
Fox had quite the success in reviving 24 with the miniseries 24: Live Another Day this past summer. Now, the network is planning to do the same for another iconic cult show, as talks are ongoing for an X-Files series reboot. Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman confirmed the news earlier today.
The network is looking to bring a new installment of Chris Carter's supernatural drama to the small screen sometime in the near future. The original starred Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny as two paranormal investigators working for the FBI. Newman said he was 'hopeful' about the outcome of launching a new version of X-Files. He also said he wouldn't mind reviving the 2005 cult series Prison Break, but there are no plans for that at the moment.
Chris Carter had hinted that a possible reboot was in the planning stages this past summer. He even acknowledged that he had »
