Like they did with 24, Fox is hoping to temporarily bring back another series that people really liked, then kind of fell out of touch with, then had no idea what was going on when they tried to watch it again. Deadline reports that the network is now attempting to bring a new The X-Files to television for the first time since 2002.
Don't get too excited, though. Like pretty much every element of The X-Files, this is beginning as just a wild idea Fox is throwing out there for others to look at more rationally. There's no story or concept or anything yet, and none of the key players have signed on. As of now, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman says they're merely having early "logistical" talks with David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and creator Chris Carter about if and when they'd be up for this. The bees from the first movie are already in, though. All of them.
