According to multiple news sources, David Duchovny wouldn’t mind starring in the X-Files again.
Fox is looking to possibly bring back the popular sci-fi series that focused on the investigation of paranormal events that the government tries to cover up.
The original series, which ran from 1993 to 2002, featured Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder. The popular show earned 21 Emmy nominations while on air, and even featured the spin-off series, The Lone Gunmen.
Fox TV Group Chairmen, Gary Newman, “announced today at the channel’s TCA presentation that they’re in talks to revive Chris Carter’s classic TV series” according to Coming Soon.
Newman also said that, “they would like to bring back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.” Well, his wish just may be granted now.
Duchovny said he would be “more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again” according to Yahoo! News.

Duchovny added, though, he wouldn’t mind a return to the series, but not as full time role.
When asked about his return, Duchovny said, “Certainly I can’t nor would I be interested in doing a full season. It will be in some kind of limited form.”
The 54-year-old Duchovny also added, “We’re all old, we don’t have the energy for a full season.”
While Duchovny mentioned wanting to work with Gillian Anderson, who played FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, Anderson has not confirmed nor denied wanting to work on the project again.
After the X-Files, Duchovny found work starring in the popular Showtime series Californication, which aired from 2007 to 2014. Duchovny played “a self-loathing alcoholic writer” who was working to “repair his damaged relationships with his daughter and her mother” while also battling a sex addiction.
Since the show ended last year, Duchovny has been working on a new NBC series called Aquarius. Duchovny will play Sam Hodiak in the crime drama set in the 1960s. While the drama has no specific release date, it is said to be “coming soon” according to NBC.
Speaking of coming soon, Duchovny added of his possible reprisal of Special Agent Mulder that he believes if it’s going to happen, it’ll happen soon.
The star told Yahoo! News that, “I’m assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now.”
