The X-Files is officially returning to TV.
Fox has officially 6 more episodes of the highly-successful franchise, and will see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their original roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully respectively.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said X-Files creator Chris Carter, who will oversee the new episodes. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
Though an official release date has not been announced, the episodes will begin shooting this summer and will air next season.
