Is the truth still out there? At today’s FOX portion of the TCA Winter press tour, FOX chairman and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman confirmed that they’ve been having talks with Chris Carter, the creator of The X-Files, about reviving the series.
The show helped establish the network in its original run from 1993 until 2002. Also, The X-Files was produced by 20th Century Fox which Walden and Newman ran before moving to the network. If the project goes forward, they hope to have original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their original roles.
Walden noted, “Gary and I both worked [at 20th] through the entire run of The X-Files. It was a great experience. We’ve maintained good relationships with Chris, David and Gillian. We’re very hopeful, but it’s hard. The actors are very busy. They have a lot going on. Chris has a lot on his plate, so it’s just trying to carve out the time.”
