Confirmed: ‘X-Files’ returning for six-part joyride
Can I get a Hell Yeah! The X-Files is returning, and dammit I think it is returning in proper form. Not some bloated, twenty-four episode run around the old park. Instead a terse, theoretically-focused revival of the series.
A little over two months since it was first reported that talks were underway to bring “The X-Files” back to the small screen, it has become very real. Agents Mulder and Scully — yep, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson— are returning too, so now we can all start searching for the truth that is out there once again.
THR reports that Fox will bring the show back as a six-part limited series. “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” series creator and executive producer Chris Carter said in a statement. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.” But the big question is: what will it be about? Well, Carter hasn’t been shy about saying in the past he had an idea for a third film, so we’d wager perhaps he’s expanding on that concept to meet the requirements of television.
How feel you?
