After making a triumphant return last year we’d heard lots of rumours that The X-Files was set to be a semi-ongoing thing and now it seems like it is indeed.

EW are reporting that Mulder and Scully, AKA David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, are probably coming back for 2018.

At the Television Critics Association’s press tour FOX president David Madden said that the actors’  schedules make the deal a big tricky but that an announcement should be forthcoming fairly soon as he had hoped and announcement would already have been made but it’s proving a little difficult.

It’s good to see FOX are putting the effort in to line the show up for the two stars, after all, it’s not the X-Files without Mulder and Scully.

It’s also believed that the new series will be longer than the six episodes we got last year but won’t be a full 22 episode season either.

Are you excited to see The X-Files back? Do you still want to believe?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
