Mulder and Scully Returning for The X-Files New Series
Fox confirms the coming of Mulder and Scully on the next 10 series of The X-Files, proving the whodunits of the universe are not yet over.
The X-Files fans are so pleased to learn that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny’s characters Mulder and Scully are returning for the program’s 10 full episodes, which will be aired this year or the next.
Fox President David Madden announced that the two are “Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creatures – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such as profound impact on millions of fans worldwide.”
“Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files,” Madden continued.
The last six episodes of X-Files revival have shown a promising rating, in which as of January 26, the program ballooned to 16.2 million viewers. Despite the TV series suffering from terrible reviews from critics, The X-Files still drew good ratings for the most part of the program.
The X-Files has been a household name when the show began in 1993. And in nine years, the program’s been hunting extra-terrestrials and solving mysterious cases, which definitely captured the viewers’ imaginations and succeeded in becoming one of the most addictive shows on television. Add to that was the intellectual romance between the two main characters, Mulder (the believer of UFOs) and Scully (the skeptic).
After The X-Files series, which aired from 1993 to 2002, Duchovny and Anderson had their own sets of projects. Duchovny took on the character Hank Moody in the TV series Californication, which earned him a Golden Globe Award and three more award nominations. Anderson, on the other hand, has won Chainsaw Award for Hannibal.
