"The X-Files" Is Coming Back To TV With Gillian Anderson And David Duchovny

Fox is reprising the science-fiction drama — with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson! — for a six-episode event series.

More than a decade after going off the air, Fox has ordered another chapter of the Emmy-winning show The X-Files. The new six-episode event series, which was announced on Tuesday, will be created and produced by Chris Carter, who also created the original series. It will also see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively. Production is set to begin this summer with an air date yet to be announced.

"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," 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."

The highly popular X-Files ran for nine seasons on Fox, from 1993 to 2002, touching on sci-fi elements and government conspiracy theories as Scully and Mulder tried to solve unexplainable cases. The show shot over 200 episodes, had more than 19 million viewers during its peak, earned 16 Emmys over its run, and sparked a spin-off, The Lone Gunmen, which was created by Carter along with The X-Files writers Vince Gilligan, John Shiban, and Frank Spotnitz.

"We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files — one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers — and we couldn't be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again," Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, said in a statement. "The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture — yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we're ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they've been waiting for."

Mulder and Scully together again!

And no one's more excited than they are!
