‘X-Files’ Returns — David Duchovny And Gillian Anderson Ignite Once Again As Mulder And Scully

It’s been a while since popular X-Files quotes such as “the truth is out there” and “trust no one” have been part of common household conversations, but all that is about to change. Fox has picked up the new six-episode X-Files series, which will begin production sometime this summer.

Possibly the most exciting part is the casting of the original X-Files actors who played Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, respectively. The chemistry between the X-Files couple seemed always to be smoldering, ready to ignite at any given moment. This is perhaps one of the driving factors behind the huge success of X-Files, and bringing Anderson and Duchovny back together is the only way to truly recapture that allure.

Dana Walden and Gary Newman, of the Fox Television Group, spoke about the original X-Files series, which ran from 1993-2002.

“We had the privilege of working with Chris [Carter] on all nine seasons of the X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again… The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. 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.”
