The truth, it seems, is still out there.
Entertainment Weekly has word that Fox has confirmed previous rumors that they are in discussions to bring back The X-Files, the much-beloved science fiction/horror television drama starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson that ran on Fox for nine seasons from 1993 to 2002.
According to the article, Fox chairman and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman say they have been in talks with series creator Chris Carter about reviving the series. The executives also revealed they hope to have Duchovny and Anderson reprise their roles.
"It’s true that we’ve had some conversations on X-Files," said Newman. "We’re hopeful of being able to bring that back at some point."
The last time the idea of bringing back The X-Files was mentioned was back in 2013, when Duchovny and Anderson said they were open to return for a third X-Files feature film during a 20th anniversary panel discussion. Since then, all X-Philes have had to enjoy are reruns of the TV series on Chiller and El Rey Network, along with the excellent The X-Files Season 10 comic book series from IDW Publishing.
