Is the X-Files coming back to tv? We want to believe.

It's a comeback!!!
We be dancing
cause it's a comeback!!!"
Certainly no new concepts have arisen, but logistics are being discussed. Both, Duchovny and Anderson have publicly said that they would love to do another movie for years now. Every so often, you would catch media about X-Files rumors floating around the internet for a week, then dissipate like Deep Throat into the shadows after giving Mulder the evidence he needs to solve a case. Here’s to hoping that after all these years of Scully and Mulder being out of our lives, they will return to the screen and dominate prime time television.
Duchovny and Anderson are electric together and made The X-Files one of the best shows to ever hit tv. The X-Files ran from 1993-2002 (even though Duchovny had a disagreement with continuing the show after season five, which inevitably caused him to leave). While ratings dipped a little after ‘98, The X-Files still had a large enough following that helped it continue to a total of 9 seasons.

I know, Duchovny and Anderson are too old to be FBI agents in the field. So, what could this reboot be about? Not all FBI agents shoot guns and catch bad guys. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully now have the experience and credentials to head the new version of the X-Files division, hiring who they think is best fit to take their place on the ground. We live in a world of amazingly disturbing things; in a time where almost nothing goes unnoticed and lucky for us, Fox Mulder’s obsession with conspiracy theories and the unexplainable could make for a really intriguing modern return to The X-Files.

You're not excited?
What's wrong with you?"
In this new take on the show, I feel like the writers should make it officially known whether Mulder and Scully are really together or not. After all, The X-Files is not about their personal love for one another, it’s a show about macabre and incomprehensible cases the FBI deals with. For all the diehard X-Files fans out there, I'm ecstatic to write about putting rumors to bed and say again that The X-Files will be back with the return of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. It's finally happening. The truth is out there.
