Get Ready for Another Strange Encounter: ‘The X-Files’ Is Returning!

Featured Television


After months of rumors and speculation, spurred earlier this year by Gillian Anderson’s visit to The Nerdist Podcast and the #XFiles2015 hashtag campaign, Fox released a press statement revealing what many fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for: The X-Files is coming back to television!

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are confirmed to be returning to their iconic roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for this six-episode event series. Chris Carter, the creator of the series, is resuming his role as executive-producer. Fox confirms that production will begin this summer, but all other details are currently under wraps.
