The X-Files Returning to Fox

I’ve heard rumors about this for a while and even that Jillian Anderson (Agent Scully) wanted to take up a crowd funding campaign to get another movie made. However, now it looks like we might have a real chance at experiencing a brand new season of the popular science fiction show from the mid to late 90s. I was a huge fan of The X-Files even though it scared the hell out of me as a kid. Once I got older I really started getting into it though…

TVWise is reporting that Fox is really close to green lighting an new season of the X-Files. Fox network has settled on a “short-stack” order for the revival and while the exact size of the order is yet-to-be-determined, they are told it will be less than ten episodes. This comes straight from TVWise on the latest update to the TV series. In February, David Duchovny (Agent Mulder) appeared on CBS’ “The Talk” and when asked about bringing back The X-Files he said “It looks good; that’s all I’ll say, It looks very good.”

static1.squarespace.comFor fans of the original series this is great news. I’ve checked a few other articles about it and people are throwing around the words series reboot but it doesn’t really sound like that to me. I guess only time will tell, but either way I am very excited. I think this is a perfect time to bring the show back, with the original cast and maybe add a new spin on it. A reboot sounds like a completely bad idea but I’m pretty confident that it won’t be.

As always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Are you a fan of The X-Files and are you excited to hear about it’s possible return to TV? Also, do you think it should be rebooted or continued even with all the time that has passed? Leave me you thoughts in a comment below, on the Facebook page or hit me up on my Twitter page. The truth is out there…
