Holy Crap, The X-Files Is Coming Back

Brace yourselves, spook fans. You’re about to do some serious hyperventilating.
Though in years past its been talked about and rumoured, and long suspected to just be a case of wishful thinking more than anything, US network Fox today lifted the curtain on the mother of all reveals: hugely beloved 90s series The X-Files is COMING BACK.
And if that alone weren’t enough to get the hairs on the back of your neck at full attention, then surely the news that both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back on board to reprise their iconic roles of FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully will.
The network revealed that the series will return for a six-part new season that will begin shooting at some point later this year, with a projected premiere date of some time in 2016.
The original series had a lengthy run of 202 episodes that first aired between 1993 and 2002, and two subsequent spinoff movies were produced – The X-Files: Fight the Future in 1998, and The X-Files: I Want To Believe in 2008.
Show creator Chris Carter stated his keenness to bring the show back to small screens in the near future thusly, “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.
Meanwhile Fox bosses Dana Walden and Gary Newman issued a joint statement that read, “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 truth is STILL out there, kids. It’s time to believe again.
