The truth is out there. Words made famous by Fox Mulder, played by David Duchovny, on Fox’s long running supernatural drama, The X-Files. The problem with the truth, especially in context of the show? It was never specifically revealed. If there was one thing the show was good at, it was creating this intricate, twisted web of ‘truths’ that painted an extremely complex narrative. The problem? There never was the big payoff letting us know what the hell was really going on.
Well, it has now been confirmed that Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will return to the series, which initially ran from 1993-2002, for a six episode mini-season. The X-Files creator Chris Carter will also return. While talking to the New York Times, Duchovny had this to say:
We’re still trying to do the same show. It’s not like were trying to make it 2.0, or whatever the.0 is now. 3.0. We’re gonna make the same show. But it’ll be interesting because Gillian and I are older. I don’t want to act like it’s 20 years ago.
When the show initially aired, I was a huge fan. I fell out after around the fifth or sixth season, not for lack of interest, but because of my work schedule. I have been patiently waiting for the Blu-Ray release of the series, which never seems to come.
