Rumours of a new X-Files TV series have been making the rounds ever since the show ended in 2002, but now it seems that we’re closer than ever to seeing Mulder and Scully back on the small screen…
After reporting that Fox TV have confirmed they are working on a new X-Files series back in January, TVWise are now stating that 20th Century Fox Television is close to giving an official green-light to a full revival, starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Fox is allegedly close to a deal which would see a “short-stack” series of between 6 to 10 episodes produced, which would accommodate for Anderson and Duchovny’s schedules.
Chris Carter will be returning to write, executive produce and direct the revival, which will see lingering story lines from the original series finally wrapped up. Fox (The corporation, not Mulder) is set to make a big announcement at their New York City presentation this May.
Until then… keep watching the skies.
