Chris Carter confirms there 'have been conversations' on an X-Files reboot

07.25.2014by: Kevin Woods

Is there still hope for an "X-Files" reboot? Let's just say that 'I want to believe'.

"X-Files" fans have heard whispers and rumors on a reboot of the beloved cult sci-fi series or a possible new film for years, but now the truth is out there as Chris Carter has revealed that there's a very real chance that the series could see a return. In an inteview with Vulture Carter was asked if a reboot was in the cards, especially when considering that Dana Walden and Gary Newman (who were the heads of 20th Century Fox TV, which produced "The X-Files" during its run) were now in charge of the Fox network. This is what Carter had to say:

I’m very friendly with Gary and Dana. Dana and I basically cut our teeth at the same time. She was a publicist. It’s nice to go through your career with someone you have respect for and were in the trenches with. Dana and I sat in the same room during the first market testing of The X-Files. She was like a junior publicist, and I was this unproven producer. She was there at the beginning. So I owe her a lot. And certainly she and I have talked a lot about this.

So does this mean a reboot is happening? Carter states:

That’s just a way of saying there certainly have been conversations.

Perhaps these conversations have been taking place for a while. Carter, Walden, and Fox are no doubt aware that fans have been clamoring for more "X-Files", so why hasn't it happend yet? Carter goes on to add...

I would assume nothing.

Carter also shared that he's still close to star David Duchovny, giving fans the sense that the actor would also be on board to return for a new "X-Files" series. Let's hope they can make it happen.

The X-Files is my favorite tv series of all-time. As much as I would love to see it back, it just can't be done. There is nothing else that can be brought to the table. Even if my beloved David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson came back, it just wouldn't be the same. I hope it is left alone but in this day and age of reboots and remakes, it will probably happen. I will avoid at all costs.

I'm game for a new X-Files for the new generation, just hoping that David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and other X-Files alums would have some cameo roles.
