The X-Files could return to TV

The X Files is set to make a TV comeback after more than 10 years as TV bosses scramble to bring back cult TV shows.

Gary Newman, the Fox TV Group Chairman, said he's hopeful that they'll get a reboot of the successful supernatural drama.

The show was a huge success when it first aired, and lasted an incredible nine seasons. There were also two spin-off films from the series too.

The series that established David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as household names is next in line for a small-screen return similar to last year’s resurrection of 24.

There's lots of optimism that the rebooted series will indeed happen and reports suggest that Anderson, Duchovny and series creator Chris Carter all want to be involved.

Following initial discussions, show-makers are believed to currently be searching for a time at which ''key players'' Gillian and David are able to reprise their roles in the supernatural drama.

A source revealed that they're adamant that the show will come back with Mulder and Scully, with the hopes that they'll draw in big numbers once again. They're hoping the cult following of the series will be interested to see what happens next for these characters.

Apparently, there is a deal in place, and not it's all down to good storylines that the audience will want to see.

The plans are to make this a long-time series once again too, not just a rebooted one season for the fans.

Anderson revealed in an interview earlier this month that she would be overjoyed if they brought back the series, and she wants fans of the show to show their support for the revival in the hopes that it will encourage the network to move forward with it.

 

 

This news comes as Fox chairman Dana Walden revealed at the TCAs press tour that 24 could make a return in 2016 without Kiefer Sutherland and Prison Break could also return, with Fox chairman Gary Newman saying he would bring back the show ‘in a heartbeat’.
