Fox Wants To Bring Back ‘The X-Files’.

The X-Files initially ran from 1993 until 2002, accruing a massive cult following with the opening credits ending with the famous tagline “the truth is out there”. The fourth-place network’s co-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman told TV reporters at Saturday’s press tour that they’re in early talks to bring back “The X-Files” and they’d resurrect “Prison Break” “in a heartbeat.” “It’s been reported and it’s true that we’ve had some conversations on the ‘The X-Files,’” Newman said about the Chris Carter-created sci-fi drama that capped off a nine-season run in 2002. Reports say Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden said the network is looking for a timeframe during which all the “key players”— including the show’s former leads Duchovny and Anderson — will all be available.

The possibility of a limited series, similar to Fox’s 24: Live Another Day, was raised during a Q&A at Fox’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, according to Variety. DePaul University alum Gillian Anderson (“Crisis,” “The Fall”) and David Duchovny (“Californication”) starred as FBI special agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder. David, who played Mulder, has an upcoming NBC event series, Aquarius, while Gillian, as Scully, has a recurring role on NBC’s Hannibal and both would have to fulfill those contracts before committing to anything else. ‘I need to wrap my brain around what that would entail,’ she said. ‘I live in London. Chris has a lot on his plate, so it’s just trying to carve out the time.” Anderson, who played Agent Scully on the show, recently sparked fervor after expressing her desire for a series reboot during a Nerdist Podcast interview.
