Thirteen years later, The X-Files will return to television with a six-episode event series. The series will be helmed by creator Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning in their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter in the press release. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
Production on the event series will being in Summer 2015.
The X-Files originally premiered in September 1993. The show follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
