ARE 'THE X-FILES' COMING BACK TO TV?
Publisher's Note: I was reading my email this morning and going through my Google Alerts when I came across a headline that I couldn't believe, suggesting that Chris Carter, the develper of The X-Files was seriously considering bringing bact the 1990s series to televisions everywhere. Stuart Conover posted an article speculating on the return on Sciencefiction.com. And it just may happen. Enjoy Dirk
Long time fans of Agents Mulder and Scully might be very happy to hear that FOX is in talks to bring ‘'The X-Files‘ back to the small screen. For the longest time we thought there would be a minuscule chance of bringing Chris Carter’s series back in the form of a third film but no word on it returning to prime time. Until now. It looks like it might be a good thing that Carter’s latest project ‘'The After‘ won’t show up on Amazon after all.
At the recent FOX TCA presentation, TV Group chairman Gary Newman announced that they’re currently in talks to bring ‘The X-Files’ back onto the network! Not only that, but if it is to happen they would like to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their roles as Agents Mulder and Scully respectively. An actual agreement with Carter on the series and the two actors have not yet been confirmed, though it is quite clear that both Duchovny and Anderson have been largely open to returning to the series in the past with Duchovny having once said “You could wheel me out. I’ll be Fox Mulder forever.”

Carter has previously revealed what he would like to see if a third movie was released stating, “the colonization date has passed and that is something we wouldn’t ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.” If you recall where Mulder was at the beginning and end of the second film, and with the alien invasion having been set for December 22nd, 2012, it could be quite interesting to see how he would end up being brought back into the agency to find out why the invasion never happened.
