If you knew me personally, you’d know how big of an X-Files fan I really am. That’s why this news is especially great for me. 20th Century Fox has announced the X-Files will be returning once again as a 10-episode event series in late 2017 or early 2018!
Production is set to begin this Summer with David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson returning to their pivotal roles of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said Fox president David Madden. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.”
The original series ran from 1993-2002 and spawned 2 feature films and one spin-off series (The Lone Gunmen).
