Fox just confirmed the truth is still out there, as the network is planning to bring back "The X-Files" as a limited, six-episode series. Stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are on board, 13 years after the original show ended its nine-season run.
"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” says creator Chris Carter in a statement. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
"'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," added Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group.
