This is pretty thrilling news as I’m a huge X-Files fan. Loved the show and I even loved the two big screen X-Files movies. Chris Carter is bringing back “X-Files” to FOX with a six episode series. Yes, David and Gillian are reprising their roles as Fox and Scully.
This is all the details they are giving us at this time. It is not yet known whether or not this is going to be a continuation of the original series or will it be a reboot? I would like to know myself.
It’s also looking like that the two big screen films that they made are being completely ignored so they are acting like the big screen movies never existed? Remember, they made two big screen films, “The X-Files” released in 1998 and “X-Files: I Want to Believe” released in 2008. Maybe this is the reason they have decided to go back to TV instead of the big screen ’cause “X-Files: I Want to Believe” was a box office failure.
Anyway, it’s awesome that David and Gillian still want to return to X-files so I’m looking forward to seeing this show.
