FOX announced on Tuesday that it has ordered a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles in the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon.
This marks the momentous return of one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.
"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," said show creator Chris Carter. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
"The X-Files" premiered on FOX in September 1993 and lasted nine seasons. Production on the event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.
