You can believe it: ‘The X-Files’ is officially returning

X-Files-Mulder-Scully 640

Things are about to get weird. Again. Fox has officially announced the revival of The X-Files, with series creator Chris Carter and original stars David Duchonvy and Gillian Anderson all on board.

The Wrap reports 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions will film the six-episode limited series this summer, but an air date has yet to be revealed.

The series, which chronicled the paranormal investigations of FBI special agents Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson), ended its original run in 2002 after nine seasons. The pair also appeared in two The X-Files feature films, Fight the Future and I Want to Believe.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” Carter said in a statement released by Fox. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group Dana Walden and Gary Newman said, “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.”

Fox also recently had success bringing back 24 for a limited run with 24: Live Another Day.
