The X-Files was one of the best sci-fi/horror shows of all time, it provided us with many sleepless nights and an eerie theme song that dominated ringtones all those years ago.

Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman made the announcement at the channel’s TCA presentation, where he says that they are discussing the opportunity to revive Chris Carter’s brilliant sci-fi show as a limited series, much like they did with 24. Newman said that they want to bring back David Duchovny and Gillian Andersonto reprise their roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. There’s no confirmation that they will return. The X-Files just wouldn’t be The X-Files without them. Don’t deny it!

Over the last few years the two actors have both said that they would love to reprise their roles, so if this actually goes through, we think that it’s safe to assume that they will be jumping on for the ride.

There are no other details at this point, but we will keep you updated.
