X-fans (that would be fans of The X-Files, not X-Men fans) can rest easy now as official word has dropped that David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and series creator Chris Carter are back! Talk has ramped up this past year about a possible reunion of sorts and what seemed too good to be true is coming to fruition. FBI agents Mulder and Scully will return in a 6-episode series event. It's been over a decade since the show has ended, but Chris Carter stated, "I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.” No other cast or story details have been revealed, but production will begin this summer.

The X-Files was one of the first TV shows I remember there being a huge fandom for when I was growing up. While I've yet to complete the series myself (I'm on it, trust me!), there's no denying the effect the show and it's characters had on the masses. Any return of The X-Files, even in limited form, is a welcome one. I'm curious to see if this may lead into another show and/or film, but that's just me getting ahead of myself. For now, it's time to celebrate!

Production on the 6-episode X-Files series event will begin this summer.

I'm not interested in them getting bogged down and tied up in trying to unpick past knotts. Give us some fresh, imaginitive, scary tales. I am intrigued by the wording "a perfect time to tell these 6 stories". Is it me or does that sound like 6 individual stories. If so I'm in!!!! Also down for a 6 episode arch (unencombered by the old conspiracy story). Oh man how spoiled are we these days!

I'm happy for this but 6 episodes doesn't seem like enough to make an impact.

I would say the last movie wasn't awful, but it wasn't stellar either. It was a serviceable serial killer tale, that probably would have played better had it been released around Halloween. But let's be honest here, no one wanted a serial killer movie from an X-Files film. Hopefully this new mini-series will recognize that.

cool news! I hope they dont continue it as if no time has past. I would rather them mention (at least in passing) that time has passed since the x files was closed.

First line of dialogue:
"Well, Scully, now that we've successfully prevented that alien colonization of the entire planet..."

Let's hope this doesn't ruin the continuity of the excellent Season 10 comic.

Well Chris Carter has a direct hand in the continuity of the comic, expecting it to be the official continuation.
