David Duchovny talks new X-Files script; says it's fantastic

David Duchovny X Files

With The X-Files officially returning next year on FOX, there’s not much else to do other than wait if you're a fan of the series. While the wait certainly won’t be easy, we have plenty to be excited about because not only is the original cast returning, but the script for the new X-Files was enough to bring David Duchovny to tears. He recently sat down with EW to talk about the show’s return, and while he couldn’t reveal any story details, he said the script was fantastic.

“I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it. That was nice and strangely emotional for me, and I’ll have to figure out how to use that [in the performance].”

The biggest takeaway from this whole interview, however, is that Duchovny says he’s open for more. Could their be more than just six new episodes in The X-Files' future?

“I would be open to doing another cycle,” Duchovny said. “I don’t know that I could do a 20-episode version of this show at this point in my life, and I don’t know that Gillian could. But I think everybody is open ended on what happens after this. Certainly, we didn’t bring it back with the idea of ending it.”

The X-Files is set to go into production in just a couple of weeks and will debut on FOX on Sunday, January 24, 2016.
