It’s been over seven years since we last saw Fox Mulder and Dana Scully together. And although their 2008 outing, X-Files: I Want to Believe was met with a lukewarm response in cinemas, their next reunion could fare a whole lot better. That’s because both Mulder and Scully are making their return to the small screen.
13 years after the X-Files ended its run, Fox will usher in a new era for the franchise with a six-episode series, which will reunite the team responsible for the hit TV show. Creator and executive producer Chris Carter will be back, and so will stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
“I think of it 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,” said Carter in an official released statement. Production of the show is scheduled to begin sometime in the next few months and Fox chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman excited at the prospect of the X-Files return to television.
“Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for,” said the duo. The new X-Files series is currently in development. No airdate has been scheduled as yet for the series.
