TV News: The X-Files Returns to Fox As Six-Episode Event Series

Share

Growing up, I’ve always had an affinity for the paranormal and supernatural. When The X-Files first came on television back in 1993, I felt like finally, there are people in Hollywood who finally get it and share my adoration for the weird and unexplainable. The X-Files is an incredibly iconic series, complete with FBI conspiracies, strange cases, and the smoldering hot Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). Of course, there is also the logical spin on the odd happenings, explained by the beautiful and articulate Dr. Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). Having both the original stars of the series returning is a huge plus. Remember Spender (William B. Davis), aka the “chain smoking man?” He really freaked me out. It’s been so long since I’ve seen the last episode or movie (The X-Files: I Want to Believe) for that matter. I’m very anxious and excited for the series to return. I hope they start to rerun the previous nine seasons back on television to whet our appetites/refresh out memories for the new six-episode event series. Perhaps if it garners enough ratings, the show will return on a more permanent basis. Wishful thinking?

The X-Files key artTHE X-FILES RETURNS TO FOX

Emmy Award-winning Pop Culture Phenomenon

From Chris Carter Is Back as Six-Episode Event Series

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to Reprise Their Roles as

FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully

Thirteen years after the original series run, FOX has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

The announcement was made today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group and Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of THE X-FILES. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of THE X-FILES – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” remarked Newman and Walden. “THE X-FILES was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as THE X-FILES, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993.  Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy® Awards, five Golden Globes® and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, THE X-FILES is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
