A Second Installment Of ‘The X-Files’ Is Coming to FOX!
Are we really prepared for this???
Fox announced today that it has ordered a second installment of The X-Files — 10 whole episodes!
Are you dying yet?
Well before you do, we have to tell you that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are set to reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Even its creator Chris Carter will be coming back to executive produce.
This is going to be SICK.
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows,” said David Madden, president of Fox. “And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide. Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.”
The series came back in 2016 for a six-episode revival, which drew nearly 16 million viewers. As a result, it became last year’s number 2 broadcast drama.
Clearly, the truth is out there. And it’s right here!
Production is set to begin this summer, and the event series will be airing sometimes during the 2017-2018 season.
