This isn’t the first time that FOX has revisited a show, they just did a mini series for the show 24, but this is the first time that FOX has brought back a show after such a long hiatus. It has been 13 years since the last episode from season 9 aired, but since then we have seen two X-File films, “Fight the Future” and “I Want to Believe.”

With the announcement FOX has ordered a 6 Episode season and showrunner, Chris Carter will be back with X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprising their roles as Mulder and Scully.Fox is also in the process of of bringing back cast members Robert Patrick (Special Agent John Doggett), Annabeth Gish (Special Agent Monica Reyes ) and Mitch Pileggi (FBI Assistant Director Skinner).David Duchovny also announced during an interview that William B.

There has also been early chatter about a streaming deal for the revival. Presently the original nine season run is available of both Netflix and Amazon Prime in the US, but a deal for exclusive streaming rights is expected to be hammered out in the months ahead.

Last but not least Chris Carter and company are looking to start filming this summer. Though there is no set air dates you can probably expect the new series to air some time next Fall.

 

So GEEKS there you have it The X-Files is officially back and I for one hope it is glorious.
