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.
