David Duchovny in favour of making X-Files TV comeback

David Duchovny in The X-Files: I Want To Believe

Story by Jack Foley

DAVID Duchovny has revealed that he would be up for bringing back The X-Files for a new TV run.

The actor, who played FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, was speaking to USA Today in light of Monday’s revelation that the hit sci-fi show could be revived by Fox Television in the US.

When asked, he replied that he’d be “more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again with Gillian [Anderson] and [series creator] Chris [Carter]”.

Carter is also reportedly keen to do something, schedule permitting, which leaves Anderson as the only person left to comment.

The hit supernatural series ran from 1993 to 2002, with Anderson playing Fox’s sceptical partner Dana Scully. It also spawned two movies, including I Want To Believe.

However, any TV comeback would more likely take the form of a limited episode event series, not unlike the revival of 24 by Fiox last year.

For, as 54-year-old Duchovny added: “We’re all old, we don’t have the energy for a full season!”
