Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are both back, with series creator Chris Carter at the helm. Production begins this summer, but it’s unknown when the episodes will actually hit the air.
It’s believed the limited series will focus on stand alone episodes, without dipping heavily into the mythology. They attempted the exact same thing with 2008’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe, and personally I believe it’s a mistake. Those clamoring for more of The X-Files universe are the ones who want to know more about the core mythology. If we wanted to see two people with intense chemistry solve unexplained mysteries… we could just watch more Supernatural.
But hey, that’s just one person’s opinion.
