Fox Is Considering Bringing THE X-FILES Back To TV

The truth is out there! At the Television Critics Association, Fox revealed that they have been discussing the possibility of reviving the Chris Carter's science-fiction television series The X-Files.


Earlier today, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman announced plans to revive The X-Files, which ran from 1993 to 2002. "We've had some conversations on X-Files and we're hopeful that we'll bring that back," said Newman. Fox Television Group chairmen and CEO Dana Walden said currently there is a "timing issue," but they have reached out to series creator Chris Carter and stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. No further details were provided and both Newman and Walden stressed that it is too early in the process to announce anything officially.

Fox previously hit a home run when they revived Keifer Sutherland's 24 and its success led Fox to look back into their vault for some more goodies. Clearly, The X-Files is one of their most prized properties as it received 21 Emmy nominations during its run and spunoff a television show ("The Lone Gunmen"), two movies, comic books and video games. 

But would Gillian Anderson want to play Dana Scully again? “I would be f***king overjoyed,” Anderson told Chris Hardwick during a recent Nerdist Podcast.


Would you watch X-Files if they brought back its original creator and stars?

Two agents from vastly different backgrounds join forces to solve cases the FBI has labeled X-Files, involving paranormal or unexplained phenomena. Both are determined to uncover hidden truths — one searching for otherworldly answers, the other for more earthbound scientific explanations. Together they will make discoveries neither could have ever imagined.
