For six years fans of The X-files have been told, "Don't give up," when it comes to the possibility of seeing David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, and for the first time in a long time, we might actually be seeing some response from Fox.
According to GiveMeMyRemote, Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO, Gary Newman, had this to say at the end of the Fox TCA exec session:
“What I can say is that if this happens, it’ll be with David [Duchovny (Mulder)] and Gillian [Anderson (Scully)] reprising their roles,” Newman said. “[X-FILES creator] Chris [Carter] is interest, both David and Gillian are interested. Scheduling is very difficult. David has his show, Gillian is doing something in the UK. I really don’t know how fast it can happen, but there are ongoing conversation happening.”
I LOVE this! I am so very glad that if The X-files does come back, it won't be a remake, but the real thing. I'd been holding out hope for another movie, but an actual revival of the show? YES PLEASE!
When asked about a possible return of another fan favorite, Assistant (now Deputy) Director Walter Skinner, Mitch Pileggi tweeted earlier today:
Regarding the recent hubbub about TXF, per usual, I know as much or as little as any of you. The show really is about M/S. We'll see.
Here's to being able to move The X-files from the "Past Shows" category into the "Current Series" one!
