According to recent reports, Fox is trying to bring back the X-files. The term “reboot” has been thrown around a lot, but as they’re trying to get Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on board (along with series creator Chris Carter), it seems like the term “revival” is more appropriate.
Think what they did with 24.
Right now everything is preliminary, so nothings been decided yet — but as this is driven by the network, as long as the creative talent is on board, it might actually happen.
I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, frankly. The X-Files came out of the 90s paranoia that doesn’t necessarily feel as right these days. Of course, I’ll still tune in if it happens.
Because I’m a continuity whore.
But I don’t know if I’ll like it.
