‘The X-Files’ Returns As Fox Event Series with Creator Chris Carter and Stars David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson

It’s hard to beat a headline like that. Sign me up!

Nellie Andreeva, for Deadline:

Thirteen years after The X-Files ended its nine-season run on Fox and months after talks about a new TV installment started, the sci-fi hit is returning as a six-episode event series from series creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Production on the event series, whose plot is not being revealed, is set to begin this summer.

That’s really all I need to know. And it looks like Gillian Anderson is nearly as giddy as the X-Files fanbase:
