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.”

OH !! Yeah!! I love X-Files, it will be great to have a new X-Files even if without Scully and Mulder. Lets give new talents a chance. For now I will keep watching them in Netflix and cable.
Yes I would be über happy! I grew up with The X-Files… It’s more than a show to me, it’s a big part of my life
Bring it back, I watched every show, do a full season.
Please, please, please bring this stuff back . I have seen every episode ten times each but something new would be awesome. Also bring back Robert Patrick and a
why? the last few seasons stunk.
I think the two last seasons, especially the 9th one, were not so great because we weren’t accustumed to Doggett and Reyes but now we are (personaly I’ve grown from hating to loving them because I was a teenager when I first saw them) with the passing time, the rewatches and reflection (they were great characters, we didn’t give them the credit they deserved at the time) and also because David Duchovny was not in the episodes and Scully was bearly in them sometimes (X-Files is not X-Files without them. Mulder and Scully are incomplete without one another). Also they… Read more »
