/x-files-series-reboot-fox/During the TCAs this past weekend, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman confirmed that talks are happening for an X-Files series reboot. Original series creator Chris Carter already hinted that he was involved with the project, and this past summer Gillian Anderson said she'd be down for The X-Files 3 movie. Now, speaking with USA Today, David Duchovny reveals that he is ready to return as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder as well. Only, he won't be able to do a full season.
[I'm] more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again with (co-star) Gillian (Anderson) and (series creator) Chris (Carter)."
David Duchovny just ended his 7 season run as Hank Moody on Californication, but that doesn't me he has a lot of extra free time now. He will soon be starring in the NBC series Aquarius where he plays a homicide detective on the trail of Charles Manson before the Tate-LaBianca murders in the 1960s. He's also just finished his first novel Holy Cow, about a talking cow who escapes the slaughter house. And its possible that we may see him return as transgender DEA agent Denis Bryson on Showtime's revival of Twin Peaks. About a possible X-Files reboot, he says:
"I'm assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now. We'll see what form, how many (episodes). Certainly I can't nor would I be interested in doing a full season. It will be in some kind of limited form. We're all old, we don't have the energy for a full season"
The X-Files had a good run from 1993 to 2002. David Duchovny stared as Agent Mulder, an FBI agent who believes in the paranormal. Gillian Anderson starred as his skeptic partner agent Dana Scully. The X-Files franchise also includes two big screen movies, 1998's The X-Files and 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe. There has also long been talk of an The X-Files 3, which isn't out of the question, even if the The X-Files reboot does happen.
