So we’ve known for a while that FOX, after successfully bringing The X-Files back last year, have been hoping for another season in the near future.
And we have known that, despite being interested, there seemed to be some confusion as actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson seemed like they hadn’t been approached (here) and so it was still up in the air as to wether or not it was happening.
Duchovny tweeted to Anderson earlier today wishing her a happy birthday and, not content at that, he dropped in a little message at the end that seems to hint – it certainly has the fans giddy – that Mulder and Scully are returning. Soon-ish: “If you see Dana, tell her Fox says she might wanna polish up the ol’ badge soon-ish”
Now it could mean something else, but we really doubt it… what say you all?
Happy Birthday, Gillian. If you see Dana, tell her Fox says she might wanna polish up the ol’ badge soon-ish. Love, D
